Is that what really happened though? I don't read that review and think "Man that dude just wanted Call of Duty". I get your frustration that they don't appreciate the game like you do. I love JRPGs which the critics bash on all the time so I do kinda get it but it doesn't mean his points aren't well founded on their own.

I don't know reading other reviews for the game, it seems his complaints have found some company. His score seems to trend lower but I don't pay much attention to scores.

I'm not sure the niche argument really applies here either, if anything it seems like the critics wanted more from the games mechanics and simulation side of it which would indicate a desire to see the embrace of that niche.

Checkpoints are not an issue, I mean fuck sake. There are a lot more games out there with MUCH harsher positions. It's a non-point.

AI has quirks, there is no consistent issue that I have noticed in my 45 hours of playing the game.

It's a niche market game, the developers know that, shame that some elements of the brain dead gaming media didn't get it.

ANYONE that treats any Sniper game as a COD clone is a COMPLETE fucktard void of any credit when it comes to reviewing games.

I don't really read PC Gamer unless people make posts like yours. That said, it doesn't seem like a fair representation of their review, I see a lot of complaints about the AI, check points, limp mechanics and so on. It seems fine to call out the bad elements of the game, especially if the sniping didn't meet the reviewers expectations.

Anyways I think sniper porn peaked with Sniper: Elite for me.

And PC Gamer can go fuck itself side ways Rifle

You either love Sniper games or you don't, but calling a Sniping game a generic shooter just shows you know NOTHING about the genre, I mean FFS!
