Last bits of jokes seemed kind of bland (since they can be built anywhere I guess, lololol dickjokes out of nowhere don't exactly rely on making fun of a game), but video was funny as a whole.

Personally I thought the game was extremely dull and repetitive, especially with the unbelievable health regen making it really damn hard to die on any difficulty level. The gore shot gimmick is interesting at first, but after replaying a demo for some time you pretty much got the whole experience in my opinion.
Story is really bland (oh look we must stop the not-a-nuke), characters are pretty much nonexistent, it's invisible-wall-level linear. Tutorial took that up to eleven.
Plus the AI was so balls-to-the-walls stupid you basically got no enjoyment out of stealthily outsmarting them. At least in Thief: Deadly Shadows the AI was so stupid it was hilarious again, and if they found you they could still knock a considerable amount off your health bar before you can initiate countermeasures.

I like how they made sniping on harder difficulties a bit more skill-requiring and by extension more rewarding when you blow up a group by shooting a grenade like it's a pinto, but between that and the killcam novelty there was nothing about this game that struck me as worthwhile.

NO GUILT! HE'S A NAZI!

Best line ever.

Sniper Elite V2 has the best option ever. The option to shoot someone through the testicles. Who doesn't like a bit of nut busting? Also, the serial killer with a rifle idea changes things up a bit. For the better of course.
Never understood what's engaging about that Freudian excitement. Guess I'm really not this game's target audience.

The ultimate irony? That game is based on the actual US/Soviet raiding of V2 scientists in Germany. In it's attempt for realism, the game becomes boring...

Also, you may want to see a doctor (or five) if that's what your penis looks like...

Yahtzee you didn't even mention getting to assassinate hitler. ASSASSINATE HITLER.
He mentions it in the credits and says you don't.

Killing Hitler was a pre-order bonus only, wasn't it?
Lmao. I kind of hope you aren't kidding, just because that would be so hilariously insane.

OT: "Unwillingly redecorate a nearby wall" is the best line I have ever heard in that context. Bravo!

All you need to know about this game can be learned on youtube. Search for "Kill hitler in the ballsack" and watch the first video on the list.

That's what I was thinking: they forgot the part where you to build missiles [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip].

Yes, but that goal was two fold:

1) Get scientists

2) Don't let Russians get the remaining scientists

I imagine they don't exactly need a sniper for number 1...
