I'd never really paid attention to this series, simply because the title is so uninspired. Fickle, I know - but glad I dived in to this one. It's some good mindless fun and not at all what I was expecting. I'd also always assumed that this was sniping and nothing else - but it's actually a mission based action game, where you happen to have a sniper rifle, but also pistols, MGs and grenades. It's a pretty decent, if slightly dated third person shooter.
