Letís face it, thereís nothing quite like the feeling of pulling off a well-aimed head-shot in a shooting game. Thereís something about acing that intricate test of precision and composure thatís just so satisfying, itís one of the great video gaming sensations. What could be better then, than a game full of nothing but sniping?!

Originally released back in 2005 on the PS2, Xbox and PC, Sniper Elite is said to have been a big influence on the makers of games such as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Unreal Tournament, with its bullet physics in particular. Now publisher Reef Entertainment has announced a Wii version of the game, to be released in Q2 2010, which makes full use of the Wiiís control system with movement and gestures, and is fully compatible with the Wii Zapper. The Wii version of the game has also been upgraded with new levels and lots of new features. This is what Peter Rezon, CEO of Reef Entertainment, had to say about the game:

ďSniper Elite represents our most ambitious project yet. We have taken a game which has been called the Gran Turismo of War Games and we will fully immerse gamers in Berlin 1945. Rifle add-ons such as the Wii Zapper have been a primary focus to make the game as realistic and exciting as possible. We believe this will be one of the most fun shooter titles launched in 2010.Ē
