SNIPER X WITH JASON STATHAM Review

SNIPER X WITH JASON STATHAM Review

Oct 27, 2015

It’s true, I don’t go above and beyond to do sniper games; at the risk of sounding wimpy they make me a bit queasy. Still, when it comes to SNIPER X WITH JASON STATHAM, I am willing to give one a go.

This one doesn’t tarry when it comes to getting right into it. One should enjoy the visual presentation, starting off with arid scenery. it is presented in first person perspective, with great use of pan-ins to help the player with perspective. The sounds are appropriately gritty, and there are overlays that appear now an then to help with navigation.

One learns on the go, and in a relatively quick manner, the sighting and shooting system is laid out. To player is armed with a basic sniper weapon; zooming is accomplished by using a slider to the right of the screen, and firing is controlled by its own standalone virtual button, and one can swing the rifle direction by swiping the screen.The sighting mechanism is relatively easy to understand, and works intuitively.

The gameplay itself is broken into missions, and a typical series has an objective of some sort… usually dispatching a bad guy — or two, or three — from distance. It starts with a heroic sequence, and from there, starts to get a bit harder as one goes along. It makes sense to survey the scene too, as different targets have different priority levels; one almost wants to take out the high-level targets first, because the game AI lends itself to logic, in that taking an errant shot can have bad circumstances, usually attracting a hail of return gunfire. Each level has a set time to complete, so one cannot goof off too much. For moving targets, the “focus” button can help provide immediate stability.

Successfully completed missions earn cash and XP, which can be used to up unlock/upgrade/purchase better gear. Real cash can be used to expedite this particular process; folks that want to earn more cash can take part in training.

If anything, the game does a good job of combining elements. The missions are fairly diverse, and don’t only involve shooting bad guys. There is a defined progression of complexity, and it mostly works, with vastly changing landscapes and such. On the other hand, it is a bit bloody, so be warned.

It keeps to the script, but not too rigidly, and has Statham. Not bad.
