Sniper Elite Remade for Wii

Posted by

A new old game

World War II sniping simulation Sniper Elite is to be brought to the Wii by UK publisher Reef Entertainment.

Set in Berlin 1945, players take the role of an American OSS agent on a mission to seek out German nuclear technology and shoot Nazis in the neck.

The game was released back in 2005 on PS2, XBOX and PC and was generally well received by the gaming media and players alike. Reef Entertainment will bring an update of the original title with new levels and additional features.

The game is currently locked and loaded for a scheduled release in Q2 2010.

Speaking of old games showing up on Wii, what happened to the announced, Enclave, port?

I played the PC demo a while ago and I liked it.
Probably will be censored in Germany like the original.
They got rid of the whole slomo-bulletflight-camera which was the best part of the game :(

I enjoyed the heck out of this game way back in the days of XBOX. A Wii port sounds really cool. Hopefully they will fix all the bugs in the game, its was quite buggy even back then, by now days standards, a simple port wouldnt net this game over a 3/10.

This was a flawed, but interesting game. Taking a slightly more realistic approach to making a shot was pretty novel.

It's not another WWII shooter. It's not a very fast paced game, but it does have it's moments.

Wow, that sounds like a cool theme. Never played the original but sniping is maybe the funnest part of FPS games for me anyway. Hope to see some Screens.

Oh cool - I'm actually looking forward to this. Like Rogue Trooper, this was an Xbox game that interested me, but I ended up passing up. Good games are good games, and while they're not as good as from-the-ground-up Wii titles, they'll more than do. The Motion control really makes these shooters a new experience. I hope someone brings it to the US eventually, like how Graffitti picked up Rogue Trooper.

Also, when original Wii games seem to sell so horribly, I suppose this is the best we can hope for:(
