The money is, obviously, trivial. Is it worth the download?

No.  Avoid.

It has inspired movies like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6p4mM489B4

That video makes the game look much better than it is.

In a way that's pretty cool.  Never seen a game in which sniper rifles were used at the kind of range actual snipers can shoot at.  Course, I can't imagine such a game being all that much fun, either, so I completely understand the recommendation to avoid.

When I played the game I don't think I ever got to actually snipe anything.  The game consisted of carefully creeping around a poorly rendered city to get to a waypoint while tutorial popups warned me to watch out for enemy snipers that, as far as I could tell, did not exist.  I spent about two hours carefully peeking around corners and scanning windows and generally proceeding at a snail's pace to my objective two blocks away.  Once I got to the waypoint, a bunch of enemies spawned from nowhere at close range and I had to run and gun my way to the next waypoint.  At this point I uninstalled the game.

The game is not realistic.  It's a fantasy of the fucking mentally challenged L337 sniper sort.
