  • Summary: Unit, a covert American military force waging a silent war against terror across the globe. Dropped behind enemy lines, you have uncovered a terrorist plan to construct a nuclear weapon and detonate it on American soil. You must follow the plot from the desserts of Afghanistan through the Russian winter and into the jungles of a small south Pacific island. Armed with an arsenal of authentic sniper weaponry, your only assistance is provided by your observer, your eyes, ears and close quarters machine gun. Make every shot count, your country is depending on it. [Groove Games] Expand

  1. CTU : Marine Sharpshooter got more enjoyable the more you played and got used to the little issues, but it unfortunately just had way too many quirks to put it up higher on the list.

    An enjoyable game, but its poor level design, limited array of weapons and numerous glitches keep it from being up there with the best of the genre, and the game seems to lack – in almost all aspects – what other First-Person Shooters have to offer.

    The inclusion of spotter management had tremendous potential to help this game break out from an all too predictable formula. Sadly the poor AI and overall concept of the role simply turns your spotter in to a hostage that you have to protect.

    It was a good game and all but some problems and through out the game the spotter sort of becomes like a hostage you have to protect throu-out the game..and the ending of the game was bad...you would expect a lot more..and then it just ends with the credits! Collapse

    Wow my luck a snipper game and inexpensive to boot.A little more time and efort this could have been a best seller. Someone forgot to add the last half of the game. In short save the money and borrow it from the poor sap like me that lost his money. Expand

    Game has been fun so far, however there is some shotty programing done here. I am unable to complete the game because my characters vision is all screwed up. It tries to stay in sniper mode, even with the knife and pistol out. I cannot make out one object and I keep getting killed. This is where my rating dropped through the floor for this game. I love sniping, but if you can't even play the game, its hardly worth it. It would be nice if they came out with a patch for it. And for as far as the game being short, well I don't know that yet. If it is though, that will be another major disappointment. Expand

    This has to be the most frustrating game I have ever purchased! It is a great idea, to have a game built on sniping but despite a great idea all the quirks ruin the experience. This thing isn't even suitable to be a Beta. You start off having a great time and then, when you figure this is going to be an enjoyable game, it screws up. Doors that should open don't, your spotter commits suicide (talk about crappy AI), and you are blocked from completing your next objective by a scene that refuses to load. Sure you can reload the game to your last saved position and usually get past but, after doing that atleast 5 times in the first few levels it tends to get on your nerves. Cars have recalls, this proves that games should too. Save your money and buy something else. Expand
