    Very poor graphics on console, awful use of cryengine 3.
    On max difficulty the game lasted less then 5 hours, and multiplayer only 2 maps.
    Ballistic and gameplay is good, AI behaviour is terrible and unrealistic. Bulletcam is nice, but you will see it very rarely. Death animations are most terrible i have ever seen... Mission are straight forward and linear. Compared to Sniper Elite

    Compared to Sniper Elite V2, Ghost Warrior looks like a bad joke.

    I played the first Sniper Ghost Warrior and liked it, despite it's short comings. However, compared to the first game, Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is extremely linear and boring.

    Like the first game, the story is bad because of generic a protagonist, supporting characters and antagonists. In terms of gameplay, the sniping is pretty solid, though when you use a side arm or run, you feel
    I played the first Sniper Ghost Warrior and liked it, despite it's short comings. However, compared to the first game, Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is extremely linear and boring.

    Like the first game, the story is bad because of generic a protagonist, supporting characters and antagonists.

    In terms of gameplay, the sniping is pretty solid, though when you use a side arm or run, you feel like a robot. The first act was okay and serves as a decent tutorial, but the second act, however, is extremely boring and liner. The second act serves as an attempt to squeeze as much character development in already generic characters at the expense of gameplay. If the story was actually interesting, I wouldn't list it as a grievance,

    Some parts of the game look pretty and all, but the textures and frame rate are awful. And that's coming from someone who can overlook a game's graphics and from someone who still mostly games on last gen, despite having a PS4 & Xbox One. If it's different on PC I highly suggest purchasing that version, if you're actually interested.

    In conclusion, I do not suggest picking this game up, unless you're some big sniping enthusiast. For me the first game gave a much better experience, so do yourself a favor and pick that one up.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 does a mediocre job of offering up a shooting gallery, but it's so limited in scope that it's almost impossible to recommend to anyone who doesn't feel a strange sense of arousal whenever they imagine popping a bullet into someone's head at several hundred yards. Well, whenever Diaz finally tells them to, of course.

    Buggy and clumsy, yet somehow entertaining. [May 2013]

    Some great sniping action surrounded by ropey stealth sections and enemy AI. [June 2013, p.69]
