    Wow I can't believe people are giving this a positive score. This game is terrible. I bought it and have regretted that decision tremendously. If you are a paid critic you get games for free to review. This helps you actually look at whether the game is great or not. If you buy it, then you don't want to say it was bad because then it seems like you wasted money. Well I bought it and I have wasted money. The game is broken. You get stuck going through doors or landing on rocks. That is great when you are supposed to be a soldier but you can't get out a doorway. Also sometimes the enemy can spot you from a mile away and sometimes you can be right near them and be invisible. My biggest complaint is this game is awesome when you snipe. It is one of the greatest moments in FPS history. Too bad you have too spend much of the game running and gunning. Why not make the game where you spend 20 minutes, sneaking around enemies and than take one shot than sneak out again. That was what the game looked like. Instead it tries to cover to much ground. The multiplayer is crap too. It lets you know exactly which direction the enemy is in. Then you just have to figure it out before the enemy sees you. This could have been a great game instead it is a shooter game that misses the mark. Expand

    The graphics are great and the sniping was enjoyable when it happened. Unfortunately if you were looking for a stealth sniping game, you're out of luck. Most areas are obviously not big enough because as soon as you have an enemy in your sights, he's spotted you. This happened through the most of the game. It's a real problem when they can see you and you have no idea where they are. Any attempt at stealth involves taking out all the guards in the area without anyone notices. In fact, it's extremely easy just to kill everyone instead of attempting stealth or sniping. Too bad the guns are terrible. The game relies heavily on the action and ignores any attempt at a coherent plot, although it provided a couple memorable parts. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the game much more had the gameplay been more refined. Expand

    Really a terribly bad game. Frustrating movement, and horrible gun mechanics make this near impossible to enjoy. It's only redeeming quality is the rag doll mechanics after a headshot.

    Okay first off. This game is no different than any other of city interactives range of sniper games. I looked on the case of them when i was in the shops and said hey these games look good i got them because they were on sale, But the gameplay was stale... I thaught their new sniper ghost warrior was going to be different but not a chance. The graphics were amazing i have no doubt about that. Okay first of all this game is too fast paced for its sort of genre in my opinion, i was looking for a slow paced sniping game when the targets required more stealth to hit. Also the sniping system is somewhat good but the instant hit bullets when not in scope is just awfull. I was hoping for bullets that actualy took time to hit their target such as in stalker and BFBC2. The assault rifles were just terrible to handle also. it felt like they were welded to my monitor. Also the npcs are just retarded. they can spot me in a ghillie suit under a canopy in the shade and in a bush when i fire my sniper rifle which is suppressed at 50 meters wehen they arent looking!? The story line was good enough. Again the graphics were great also but it was just these things that annoyed me. Just felt like playing Marine sharpshooter 3 with new textures and story... Expand

    ever thought about strapping on some camo paint and snipering some creeps...then this is the game for you,its a very realistic take on being a sniper,you get to explore a jungle environment that is very large and runs very smoothly,very good game

    The single player was fun, but annoying. (Rented it from GameFly). Apparently you can't crouch and go up stairs at the same time. Areas where you think you could go through you couldn't and vise versa. The enemies can spot you way to easily unless you are on your belly. Most of the time I couldn't find where they were shooting you from. If you are killed simply spawn back in and don't worry, the enemies will be in the same spot they were when they killed you the first time. When two guys were talking to each other, you could take out one of them and the other guy wouldn't even notice. The game plays a little fast for a "sniper" game. When you do use another gun, the assault rifle, its terrible. Some tweaks to the movement system and some better AI could make this game an 8 or better. When it hits the clearance bin at Target $10 or less I might pick it up. Expand

    It just goes to show how little critics know about the game play or interest of so many gamers. Yes the game does not compare to MW2 or greater franchise games. But it does deliver a gaming expierence by trying to do something different, gets you involved and provides you with some much needed action and excitement.

    I found this game extremely enjoyable !! Seeing the bullet fly through the air into the enemies head was totally awesome. While I agree its not as good as other FPS I disagree with the many negative reviews.

    the game lacks from soo much, it has some interesting stealth parts but other than that, its a broken down mess, the graphics are okay not the worst graphics but not the best either, the campaign is only 3 to 4 hours long and thats only if you die alot, which there are alot of cheap deaths, and worst of all, no one plays the multiplayer!!! so you have a game with a very very short campaign and after you complete it, theres nothing to do, dont even waste your money on it Expand

    This is the worst game I have ever played in my entire life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing is good about this game at all. Campaign is terrible and is way to easy. Multiplayer is even worse. There is going to be a Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 and i'm not buying it(unless it get amazing reviews) I borrowed this game from a friend and when I give him back the game he will sell it(Great idea mate) Sniper Ghost Warrior 1.5/10 Expand

    It's a stealth based game if you treat it as such, for the price it is these days and you like fps games you would be remiss not to give it a try. I never played it online but I was very satisfied with the gameplay while I wait for dishonored, develepers should release more in the summer months

    This game is really lacking in everything, ending was non-existent and for a game supposedly based on sniping very little properly takes place. Most missions involve "stealth" which usually means kill everyone so there's no one left to see you anyway. Such an approach shouldn't be viable on the hardest difficulty, then there are the the non-sniper parts which are completely pointless

    The only thing this game is good on is PISSING ME OFF! This game is just out right terrible! Every time someone mentions this game I just want to skin a cat! Well, maybe not that bad, but still Sniper Ghost warrior is a horrible game! One of the worst games I have ever played. Terrible graphics, horrendous controls, s###ty story, and a multiplayer that would make you go INSANE! I bought this game thinking that it will be a very good and well-managed sniper game and the thought of a sniper only game was ingenious. Instead it ended up being a huge flop! I should have known that this game was terrible when it was selling for $10 in a bargain bin. I don't even remember what your suppose to do even though I finished the whole game. The story is so forgettable! You won't care about the main character nor the other characters in the game. Do not buy this game! This game is just TERRIBLE! Expand

    I was just wanting to play a decent stealth sniper game, so I went to walmart and found one. Then I presumed to myself "Hey, this game looks fun. I should buy (WASTE) $20 of my hard earned cash." Well guess what, I can list 50 THINGS WRONG with this so called "game." The weapons are bad, the cut-scenes are somewhat freezing up, and the Artificial Intelligence (AI) is TERRIBLY HORRIFYING! One time, I was SILENTLY approaching a base and ACCIDENTALLY shot the guy and two seconds later, I DIED! Not from my friend, but from a soldier 50 MILES AWAY... WITH AN AK-47! Oh, and another time, I was wandering around, and the TEXTURES are ROW RESOLUTION... FOR A 2010 GAME! But WAIT... That's not all. Not only do the enemy soldiers have 1 trillion mile thermal, (sarcastic) advanced guns that go to 50 miles, (sarcastic) BUT THE VOICE ACTING! Raw lip synching is what is suffers. The only time it ACTUALLY WORKS is during the OCCASIONAL FREEZING CUT SCENE!
    Don't buy this game, You're better off buying a cheap Airsoft pistol. But hey, the game is not so but about 2% of the time. I wasted my time, but PLEASE, I don't want YOUR time too! Go buy a better game that's WORTH you time, money. and reaches your entertainment levels. The final vertic is a 2/10; A horrible game. These people need to do better. I am going to literally pee on this game and BREAK IT then flush it down the toilet where it freaking belongs. Thank you for reading my review... See you next time! Bye.

    Its the first time after a so many years, I've actually smashed the disk to prevent any one else playing this totally dysfunctional game. It is computer-centric engineering where line-of-sight means nothing. Enemy can see and shoot through walls and rocks and even the most veteran of players don't stand a chance against the computer. These games should be assessed before being released. It only cost me $14 bargain-basement, and even that was a rip-off. An insult to veteran gamers. It is now in the bin where it belongs. Expand

  1. Rotten sniper slop with flimsy Call of Duty-esque levels glued onto the side. [Oct 2010, p.94]
  2. We've seen all of Sniper: Ghost Warrior's tricks before, and in far superior games. [Issue#62,p.88]
  3. Sniper: Ghost Warrior suffers from far too many little bugs and annoyances to make it a recommendable game.
