With all the major military franchises obsessed with speculative future conflicts, it falls to Rebellion to serve up some next-gen World War II. Sniper Elite 3 deals with the North African theatre of the war, promising a more open, sandbox approach to the series' trademark stalk-and-snipe. I suppose that means we can expect some vast, desert vistas rather than Sniper Elite V2's pervasive rubble. Although rough around the edges, Rebellion's last shot at sniper simulation was a crassly fun boy's own adventure that took grue cues from the nastier end of the British war comics of the 1970s.
