Review of “Sniper Elite 5”
Elite Sniper 5 is one of the biggest titles coming to PS5 and PC this spring, with new multiplayer features as well as throwback mechanics that have made the series a fan-favorite of stealth games. We’ve been playing it for a while and our game writer has delivered his verdict
