Sniper Shot 3D Review

Sniper Shot 3D: Call of Snipers‘ biggest attribute, possibly, is its simplicity.

The name lets you in on the game, in that it is a shooter. You get basic graphics, a bit stilted at times, but enough to convey the gameplay, along with varied backgrounds and action shot that blend in slow-motion sequences to catch the eye. The controls incorporate a dual thumb system, such that you can invoke the sights with the right side and shoot with the left.

It starts out as you basic sniper shooter; it is broken into levels, and each one has an objective. The first few help you get the basics down: how to zoom in, swing vision and the like, as well as advanced concepts like slowing down your breathing for a steadier shot. Accuracy means a lot, and as to be expected, head shots carry maximum value.

Missing a target means they might get startled, and run off, meaning that particular level is failed. Successfully completed missions yield scores, game currency and the unlocking of subsequent levels.

As for the levels, you’re generally tasked with taking out non-desirables in different scenarios: escaped prisoners, hostage situations and more. Weapon choice is important, and it is necessary to think of speed, because, for instance, the bad guys are going to hold off taking out innocent hostages for only so long. As you go on, you might need to unlock goodies and go for infinite shooting power-ups, because these get tougher the further in you get.

The game does well with regards to mission types and the gradient of difficulty; it keeps the action interesting by not being too one dimensional, and encouraging strategic play.

There are a few issues. In some areas, it even feels somewhat unfinished, like when the graphical sequences defy physics. Also, some of the action sequences might seem a bit callous to fold with Western sensibilities. Beyond the unnerving ickiness of sniper play to begin with, doing stuff like shooting fleeing baddies does feel a bit awkward at the very least.

In the end, it does the deed if one is looking for an engaging time waster, because it doesn’t overly complicate matters with intricate missions or complex upgrade mechanisms. Shoot, get better, advance.

Simple.
