Scoping out a WWII shooter

Another slow week arrives, with only two games coming out in total. Rebellion's WWII sniping simulation is the big game this week, and if you haven't played the demo, I suggest you do so. It's a lot of fun, in my opinion.


North America - May 1st, 2012

Will get both eventually, I think MUD has a demo so I'll be trying that. As mentioned the sniper demo rally is so much fun

I've been meaning to play the Sniper Elite V2 demo, from the clips I've seen it looks quite good but I just hopes I can complete objectives how I want to and not how the game tells me to.
If at first you don't succeed; Call it version 1.0

Sniper demo was pretty good actually. Might pick it up a couple of months from now when the price has dropped a bit because, to me at least, it doesn't warrant a full price purchase...
Keep on fraggin'

If anyone was deciding on whether to get MUD or not, the game will get boring after about an hour of gameplay. The races are so repetitive and the tracks are mostly the same. The achievements that you can do offline are pretty easy and simple; not sure about online. I would rent the game instead of paying retail.

Anyways, buying Sniper Elite V2.
