My opinion about the game and should you buy the game?
The game is very similar with Sniper Elite 3 but with some improvements , the story is very well made and inspireed by real life events . I really like the gameplay , i like do to everything as stealth as possible. I really enjoy the game and the dlcs , the game without dlc is around 11 hours of gameplay , only the story but if you want to complete everything you can get up to 30 hours of gameplay. Overall the game is very nice but in my opinion is a little overpriced , is a long game , that's true , but 60€ is a little to much . And not only that but if you want a DLC to kill Hitler you also need to pay another 10€.
In conclusion i recommend the game but if you want it you should wait for a sale. I hope you enjoyed my article , thank you for your time!
