V2 doesn't solve all the problems from the original Sniper Elite game, but it does have fewer glitches. Look for better kill-shot cinematics when you execute an especially deft pull of the trigger. These moments contain a mashup of bullet time sequences with the X-ray-vision destruction from Mortal Kombat. After a bunch of these slow-motion shatterings of muscle, bone and limb, you'd think it would wear you down, but instead it always feels thrilling to pull it off.
