    I really did like the original xbox version, mainly because co-op, but never got around to playing the full version of the remake here.

    Still as far as promos for upcoming games go (Sniper Elite 3 is out at the end of the month) this is a good one.

    It hasn't gotten the best of reviews, but personally I've had quite a bit of fun with this game.

    Erm...yeah. I'll pass. I'm not a fan of WW2 or slow motion fatalities (btw...am I the only one who got a serious grudge against that stuff EVERY FUCKING TIME YOU SHOOT SOMEONE in fallout 3?). I could say "yeeeey, free game", but with my steam backlog it even has to take a number in that line as well.

    Still...nice news. It's only a matter of time before we will get payed to download and play games now. :)

    Yeeey! Free Gaems! :P
    Anyway, it looks interesting, I should check it since I already skipped Origin's BF3 freeness.

    I thought it was just in VATS that slow motion happened, also it was a reasonable common criticism. As for world war 2 the original did actually manage to be a WW2 game I would stand to play during the xbox era which was a reasonable feat.

    I forgot
    Grabbed it a while back for 360, it was a pretty ok game. Might as well grab it anyways, I hear the multiplayer is pretty good for a Sniper-esque game.

    Played it a little bit with a friend right before Steam server maintenance, it's kinda fun.

    Yeah it was only with VATS and I swear I saw an option to turn it off, but maybe i'm thinking of a different FPS.

    Not completely sure if you're talking about Sniper Elite V2 or some other game, but you can reduce the number of bullet time events in Sniper Elite V2 if you go to the settings.

    Unless there's an option in one of the ini files, there's not one in the in-game menus. But the game kinda sucked as a straight fps, so VATS kind of helped balance it out. I didn't mind it but it definitely made the game cheap as hell.

    On-topic - yay more free games :yay:

    Nah I was referring to Fallout 3.

    Boo. Must've been thinking of a different game then.
    I always got the perk that made things explode into pieces when they die. Slo-mo never ceased to entertain me with that.

    From what I gather Wii only had the first one. Wii U however should have Sniper Elite V2.

    if they use the wiiu controller as a second screen for the sniper binocular that would be a killer , but we can just hope so ( also the first one on the wii sucked :glare:)

    This must be to gain some hype for Sniper Elite III, due out at the end of the month.
    Look out for an official GBAtemp review in the next few weeks!
