Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.

Sniper Elite V2 trails the NVIDIA offerings at all resolutions, but continues to offer strong playable numbers across the board. When it comes to comparing Quiet and Uber modes on the R9 290X, though, you can see that little difference is really seen.

 

We see a bit of a jump at the lowest resolutions, but looking at the numbers, we would've preferred that at the highest resolution, then we probably would've also been able to outperform the NVIDIA offerings with an extra 10%.
