Counter-Snipe is an excellent online sniper game that puts you in the role of the sniper trying to take out enemy soldiers. The graphics are engrossing and the music adds to the overall feel of the game. Run out of time and your game is over. Take too much damage from enemy shots and your game is over. You are armed with a scope, though, like any good sniper, which will make it a little easier for you to hit your targets. This game is never easy though. Fans of online sniper games shouldn't have a hard time getting the hang of the controls but newcomers may find the game a little frustrating; even when using the scope. It isn't an easy game by any stretch of the imagination, even for experienced players, but it is a challenging game well worth playing.
The goal of Counter-Snipe is fairly easy to understand. Find as many enemy targets as you can an eliminate them before your time is up. Like with more online sniper games, you will take shots from your enemies, but in this game, every time an enemy shoots they can give away their position and make it a bit easier to find and take them out. When your enemy shoots, you will see muzzle flashes and hear gunfire alerting you to the fact that you are being attacked. You can then locate that enemy and take them out. You get more time for every enemy you take out and get an additional time bonus for every headshot you get. Getting headshots can be quite difficult, but the bonus making a headshot gives you extends your game significantly and allows you to take out more enemies and earn more money. You can use money to buy new avatars in the 'profile' section of the main menu or to purchase new weapons and weapon upgrades in the 'armoury' section of the main menu.
The armoury in Counter-Snipe is going to be your best friend if you want to really do well in the game. Earning the cash for the good upgrades is going to take a little while, but it's worth it. You can also choose to buy funds with Mochi coins if you happen to have any. Mochi coins are actually a fairly good investment, even if you don't intend to spend them all in this game. There are a lot of games you can use them in, so they're worth considering. If you don't want to actually spend the money, just stick with the game and get as many kills as you can. There are several weapon upgrades and several different weapons that can make the game much easier and much more entertaining. Saving up to buy a new upgrade and putting it to the test can be a lot of fun and add a whole new element to the game. Even purchasing new avatars for your profile can be fun as well, so check out what the profile tab has to offer.
There are three game modes to choose from in Counter-Snipe which makes this game much different from most other online sniper games. You can choose to play a Multi-Player game, a Single Player game and a Private game. Choosing a Multi-Player game will pit you against another player in an online battle. This is something few other sniper games offer and is an excellent addition to the game. For newcomers to the sniper game genre, I would recommend playing a few Single Player games first to allow you to get used to the controls. Once you're a little more comfortable with the game, you can try out the much more fast paced (and much more difficult) Multi-Player games. Alternatively, for skilled or experienced players, you'll likely find the Single Player game a bit too easy, so starting out with a Multi-Player game will likely be a better idea. It will offer you the challenge you are looking for. You may want to try out a few Single Player games to earn money for upgrades, but all in all, the Multi-Player option is where you will find the greatest challenge. The addition of the Private game option is perhaps the best feature this game offers. In this game mode you can challenge a friend to play the game against you by sending them a link to the Private game you've created. You will then face off against each other in an online game that any fan of sniper games will enjoy.
Overall, Counter-Snipe is most enjoyable because of the game play options it offers. Newcomers have the opportunity to hone their sniping skills alone before moving on to more challenging multi-player battles while experienced players can get the challenge they love in a multi-player game or a battle against a friend. The game isn't easy but with a little practice, even the novice player will be able to improve. This is definitely an addictive game anyone will have a blast playing.
