  1. I dig how you give breakdowns of the different platforms. You're a great reviewer man. Side note; I've been thinking about Aim 2 and how if they don't give us one, maybe we could 3D print up a gun for the controllers to pop into. Had no idea they already existed! Still hoping for an official aim 2 implementation but worst case scenario, knowing this ground is already being covered is awesome.
    Bingeing you're reviews was a big part of what convinced me to get a headset. I would've already known all this had I been keeping up with your channel. To my eternal shame, I have not. Time to rectify that situation. Notifications activate! : )

  2. Leaderboards and weapon specific challenges provide an incentive to continue killing long after you’ve fired your final bullet.
    Very highly recommended using the PSVR aim controller.

  3. Game was pure rubbish. The guns r absolute rubbish, the interactivity is pathetic. This game is shocking very disappointing to see such a favorable review doesn't make sense.

  4. My god PC needs an aim controller! Why has no one done this yet? And no, not those shitty 3D printed stocks lol. Honestly, it’s the ONLY thing I miss about my PSVR…..and maybe Astrobot 💔

  5. Thanks for the Review 👍👍👍 i want to pick it up but im wondering if i should get it on the Quest 2 or PSVR ???? I have the aim controller on PSVR but i noticed i get motion sickness on PSVR more often then on the quest 2 probably cause of the blurry ass visuals

  7. This is why I strongly dislike Oculus being the market leader right now. Even when we get a big AAA release like this these days, it has to be so limited in its design to be able to run on quest. The quest is a great device of course but big AAA experiences that are built for PCVR are so few and far between and are only going to become more rare.

  8. I can’t wait to play this with real physics , windage and elevation and no help indicator , as I’ve played all of the sniper elites with real physics on , what’s the purpose of playing a sniping game and using a cheat indicator to help with windage and elevation , I guess it’s for people who just want to make quick shots and feel like they are a true marksmen , I’ve been waiting for this game and is the reason I bought a psvr 2 years ago cause I knew this game was coming !

  9. This was an instant buy for me on Quest 2 since I dont have an Aim controller. But one of the key Sniper Elite features is missing – Coop play through the missions! Zut alors!

  10. Why do most vr games require you to use your offhand when chambering a sniper round the bolt is on the right side for right handed shooters few Games let you chamber with your main hand while holding with your offhand

  11. Hey man! Great review! Does the foveated rendering on the Quest version bother you during game play? That shit really bugs me. Especially on games which encourage you to look around. It ruined the climb 2 for me.

  12. Nice review, pleasantly surprised to hear the campaign is around 8 hours, I was worried this was going to be the standard 3-4hr vr experience. It's great to see another must have experience coming out for the aim controller too.

    Just curious if you had the chance to try this on a base ps4 or if you're aware of there's a big difference in resolution.
