  1. If I could turn the sniper rifle on my character in Sniper: Path of Vengeance, it would have been a much shorter but more satisfying game.
  2. Possessing a sketchy storyline, abysmal artificial intelligence and repetitive gameplay, nothing about it engrosses you in the action and keeps you coming back for more.
  3. 35
    A low budget, no fun, sad entry into the gaming world. Avoid it.
  4. A terrible game, complete with endless problems that make it more of a chore than a pleasure to play. Avoid it at all costs.
  5. Derivative, homely, tedious, and buggy. It also has a useless character stat and leveling system, so RPG enthusiasts can hate it too.
  6. It doesn't just crush your soul; it zaps your will to live. [Jan 2003, p.79]

    OK... sniper... guy who hides in bushes, shoots people with a really cool gun... can never be seen... the ultimate sharpshooter. a good sniping game needs to have good controls, and must have good enemies. the gamer should have to learn certain sniping skills like how to breathe correctly when shooting, learn to aim for the heart... stuff like that. this game reminds me more of the early raycasters like caslte wolfenstien where you run around in circles blowing things up... Sniper? no.... maniac? maybe... bad game.. yes.... was this written in fortran? it takes 20 mins to load! Expand
