Sniper Elite V2 Wii U coming to the UK in spring

Please, please, please don't be full price, a great game for sure, but a late port doesn't justify a high cost


I'm only setting myself up for disappointment :(

It all depends the Price. I already have it for 360. I paid 19.99 for it new. I Love my Wii U but an over priced port is not going to get me to buy it.

Just hope this doesn't start a trend for lazy ports of 360 and PS3 games that promise "unique gameplay" and to take advantage of the Wii U's "Different Mechanics", but ultimately end up as nothing more than a cheap way to squeeze more money from old games.

The "kill cam" was frustrating by he end of the 10-minute demo on other platforms, but the gameplay was good enough, I suppose.

Now, I'm not exactly interested in realistic shooters, but surely they could have come up with something better to put on the GamePad screen than a map...
Surely, the Game Pad should have be used as an expanded and free-moving sniper-scope. I mean, that's not me being mental, is it?

YET ANOTHER PORT!!! SHEER LAZINESS! IT'S GIVING THE CONSOLE A BAD NAME!!! :x
I mean, maybe it's okay just to test the waters, but there are way too many ports, even though I haven't played a lot of the ports on Xbox, a lot of people are using the ports argument to hate on the Wii U.
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

As said by other people another port!

That's why Wii U sales are rubbish t the moment and the bad press.

Why would people buy a new console just to play old games on it.

Exclusive games should improve soon I hope :roll:

I'm surprised, but pleased, to see that this game is coming to the Wii U. I'm sure it will make great use of the gamepad, as a scope or radar/map etc. Might pick this up as long as it isn't over £35.

I see your point, but in a case like this one it, hopefully, won't be a straight, lazy port and should have extra features (using the gamepad) that the other version wouldn't have.

Also, a lot of people don't have any other consoles that have already had these games, like me (and probably many other people) I don't have an Xbox, PS3 or computer capable of playing this kind of game so for me ports are a chance to play games I've wanted to play but previously wasn't able to.
