    Hopefully success of Sniper Elite V2 means more games will feature exploding internal organs with X-Ray shots.

    I think that Sniper Elite is actually a pretty good game. Not brilliant by far but I think it deserves 1st place for a little while. I’ve been really enjoying it and although its not really very ‘deep’, at all, in any way, the fact still remains its fun to shoot the shit out of some Germans. And Russians as well for some reason. At one point the Russians were about to shoot a German V2 rocket filled with deadly gas at London for absolutely no reason whatsoever. In this game the Russians are in league with the Germans or something like that. So apart from the historical retardation its a pretty sound game.

    Well deserved. Granted the only real competition is Prototype 2, but it wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t selling something.

    @4 From your lips to the flying spaghetti monsters ears my friend.

    @5 It’s very US 1950′s in its approach, but in fairness, Stalin is the rolemodel for a large number of the most heinouis dictators in modern history.

    It’s not uncommon for governments to work behind the scenes in order to send a message to other governments, although mass casualty terrorism is unheard of.

    The honeymoon between USSR and US was extremely short, and it didn’t take more than 3 years before Stalin used military force to try and starve Berlin away from the allies.
