Default Sniper Elite on sale for $2 on Steam

A decent game and well worth $2 if you don't already have it. Doesn't work the best with widescreens since it stretches but over all its a fun ga,e.

For $2, you really can't go wrong. Haven't played it yet, but it looked interesting enough for me to buy it. I really like sniping so it should be fun .

I paid $2.50 for it a while back it is a decent game though the widescreen thing kind of stinks so I keep it at 1600x1200 in the original aspect. And the graphics are a bit dated (originally an XBox game IIRC). It has an interesting save mechanism, you can save anywhere at any time, but you are limited to only a few saves per level so you have to make them count. It also has a minor glitch with loading saved games. If you try to load a saved game from the main menu it crashes the game. To get around it you have to start a new game then load from the in game menu, then it works.

Sweet, maybe we can get a brief break in having 75% of the team in BFBC2 snipers now.

Bought, along with Just Cause 2. Then I remembered I was meant to get Dragon Age: Awakening. Ah well I'll get it tomorrow...

I play as assault or medic, so I won't help your cause.
