Nuts

505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs.

Boom headshot

It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4.

For as unashamedly goofy as it may be, there’s something entertaining about the Sniper Elite series’ ostentatious X-ray killcams.

Tiny brains, big character

Science: it’s a wonderful thing. Without science, we’d still be muddling through the dark ages, in a world without Facebook and instant soup.

Don’t be fooled by the aesthetics, though – this is a release that demands your time and effort if you want to get the most out of it...
