* ColdSniper: The player character and enemy snipers are ever the cold and efficient professionals of their trade.

to:

* ColdSniper: The player character Karl Fairburne, as always, is extremely unemotional and enemy cold-blooded, almost behaving like a robot. [[spoiler: Except for when his friend Brauer gets blown up by a Tiger tank, which is the only time in the entire series he displays emotion]].

* HollywoodSilencer: The Welrod is again a small chuff rather then the door slam it has in reality. DLC gives you a suppressed semi-automatic, the HDM, which for some reason is as silent as the Welrod, despite being semi-automatic and therefore having a noisy cycle.



* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: The Arisaka, obtainable by DLC, is a ''Japanese'' rifle, and therefore very much out of place in the game, especially since the Japanese never reached Africa during the war.



* NotSoDifferent: The Wunderwaffe engineer revels in war, and accuses Karl of having the same attitude. Karl spits it back in his face, and when it's time to kill the engineer Karl's expression looks more like jaded disgust than anything else.[[note]]No, this was never foreshadowed or built upon; it's all loaded into the last ten minutes of the game[[/note]]

The latest game in the Sniper Elite series, a prequel set during the Campaigns in Africa, chronologically before the fall of the Nazis in VideoGame/SniperEliteV2. You are again Karl Fairburne, an OSS officer who is sent in to deal with Nazi Wunderwaffe or Wonder Weapons. The location is various parts of Africa as Karl does his best to help turn the tide against the Nazis in favour of the allies.

The game is aimed at being more like the original VideoGame/SniperElite with the more open environments allowing the player to approach their targets with more flexibility as well as possibly putting them in assorted and potentially hazardous situations. The player may also find new solutions to each objective as they stalk around the enemy territory.
