There is a light metagame associated with the loadout options as I found myself deciding between more ammo for my rifle versus a lesser quantity of silenced ammo. Leveling up will also unlock skills that assist tremendously in the field.
The biggest gripe I have with the game comes by way of the unique checkpoint system. It can be both forgiving and unapologetic at the same time. Upon death, you never have to make up a lot of lost time but you also frequently respawn in the middle of a heated battle, after having already been detected with dozens of enemies closing in on your position and reinforcements inbound.
The eight mission areas allow you to explore different geographic locales and the snowy mountains are as beautifully detailed as the tropics. While the visual fidelity and draw distance may not match something like Horizon Zero Dawn, Sniper Elite 4 is another game worthy of a photo mode.
Continuing the full Triple-A experience, Sniper Elite 4 offers a complete multiplayer suite with a number of modes and a seamless online experience. The maps from the campaign are reused, bringing to the forefront the brilliance of their design and showcasing their adaptability to different game modes. The option to play the game in its entirety with a co-op partner is the cherry on top of the campaign.
