He said "there is a realistic" mode. It wasn't on.I guess I'm too old to have connected with the video game phenomenon. As a pilot I appreciate the training value of quality simulator time, when I see these games I look for possible training value.
I have no doubt that these "first person shooter" games are a real hoot and that their popularity has grown to include a huge segment of the population.
FWIW, in the short clip posted by the OP the shooter appears to be using an Enfield No.4 Mk.1 T rifle in .303 caliber. These sniper rifles were issued to the forces of England and the commonwealth countries. The telescopic rifle sight that came on these rifles was the No. 32 mk I, mk II, mk III. This scope had a 3X magnification and was equipped with a pointer & crosswire reticle.
The through the scope views in the clip shows a crosswire reticle with graduations (mils?). During the period of WWII there were no such reticles in general distribution.
Additionally, the clip shows a 178-meter, downhill, head shot being made with what appears to be full mil to 1-1/2 mil hold-over. In reality this would be a 7 to 10-inch high clean miss with a 100-meter zeroed rifle. (This ignores the 20 to 30-degree down angle.)
A moving target head shots with no apparent lead is also shown. Realistic? I don't think so.
I have that one, this one looks a lil better.you guys should check out Sniper: Ghost Warrior - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia its a sniper based game in modern day.
That does look nice, the first one had a great concept they just needed to add more to it.
