This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of sniper battling Nazi forces in Italy during World War II. From first- and third-person perspectives, players use sniper rifles, machine guns, pistols, and explosives to kill enemy targets to complete mission objectives. Players also use stealth attacks (e.g., stabbing enemies with knives) to dispatch enemies at close range. Realistic gunfire and large explosions are frequently heard during combat. Performing accurate shots triggers short cutscenes which follow the bullet's trajectory in slow motion; the bullet is shown shattering/bursting enemies' skulls/bones and internal organs in an x-ray view with large blood-splatter effects. The word “sh*t” is heard in the dialogue.
