June 7th 2022

Snipers,It's been 11 days since the launch of Sniper Elite 5 and whilst (rest assured) we're still working hard on the next patch to address priority bugs and feedback, we're maintaining the hype train with our latest Accolades Trailer. Shinning a light on what the critics have to say about the latest instalment in the Sniper Elite franchise.Check that out here:

Eurogamer – Essential

  • “Sniper Elite 5 has blown me away. I spent most of my weekend with it in a state of delighted befuddlement, constantly muttering 'isn't this brilliant?' as it delivered yet another incredibly designed level to creep around while turning Nazi skulls into cornflakes.”
  • “Sniper Elite 5 perfects the balance between sniping and more general stealth.”
  • “Through its invasion mechanic, Sniper Elite 5 achieves the ultimate goal of any sniping game, to capture the tension and drama of Jude Law and Ed Harris squaring off in Enemy at the Gates.”

GamesRadar – 4.5/5

  • “Sniper Elite 5 is the best it's ever been with a new game mode that'll blow your mind.”

PSU – 9/10

  • “easily the best Sniper Elite experience to date.”
  • “If you're looking for a tactical, rewarding World War II-era shooter, Sniper Elite 5 comes highly recommended.”

ShackNews – 9/10

  • “Sniper Elite 5 is a game that knows exactly what it is, and delivers on all fronts.”

GameByte – 9/10

  • “The sheer mind games that occur in Invasion Mode easily makes it the best feature Rebellion has ever designed for a game.”
  • “This is peak Sniper Elite”

GamingTrend – 8.5/10

  • “Even five entries in, Sniper Elite 5 manages to deliver on the core gameplay sniping loop while managing to provide us with a handful of new features to keep things fresh.”

WorthPlaying – 9/10

  • “Sneaking around and sniping Nazis is an engaging as it ever has been”
  • “the game has certainly hit the bull's-eye”

GameGrin – 10/10

  • “Plainly put, Sniper Elite 5 not only managed to meet my expectations but far surpass them. What I thought would be a fun game for a couple of hours at most became quickly a phenomenal release I couldn't get more of.”

GodIsAGook – 8.5/10

  • “Not only does it look great, some of the maps are massive.”
  • “Sniper Elite 5 is the best the series has been, with layered combat, huge maps, and tons of options to get that all-important kill.”

NME – 8/10

  • “I’ve played 30 hours of Sniper Elite 5 and it is my professional opinion that it is fun as shit”
  • “Sniper Elite 5 is excellent, genuinely.”
  • “one of 2022’s most essential releases”

Xbox Achievements (also PS Trophies) – 8/10

  • “Sniper Elite 5 sees the studio in fine fettle, working well within its comfort zone to deliver an unapologetically entertaining and remarkably varied bullet-riddled experience.”
  • “a wonderfully robust and consistently enjoyable sandbox shooter that's good, reliable fun.”

ScreenRant – 4/5

  • “One thing that's very impressive about Sniper Elite 5 is its level design, and some of the open environments are truly great.”

Metro – 8/10

  • “just about as tense as gaming gets”
  • “Sniper Elite 5 is the best of the franchise to date... The sniping loop especially, boosted by subtle use of the DualSense’s haptics, is the most compelling it’s ever been.”
  • “More highly addictive Nazi cranium popping, that improves almost every aspect of the experience – especially in terms of the open world and expanded weapon options.”

EGM – 4/5

  • “the best game in the series so far”

Independent – 8/10

  • “at a healthy distance is where Sniper Elite’s gameplay shines.”

Stuff – 4/5

  • “France is a beautiful sight to behold whether you’re sneaking through its scenic countryside or skulking through stately chateaus draped with Swastika banners.”

IGN – 7/10

  • “Sniper Elite 5 is still a satisfying and spectacularly gross way to shoot Nazis in their nether regions”
