    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. AnyThe graphics are great and the sniping was enjoyable when it happened.

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

    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 aboutOkay first off.

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

    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'tThe single player was fun, but annoying. (Rented it from GameFly).

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.

    This game was a decent effort, but had a lot of room for improvement. There were a lot of simple bugs that hurt the game play. Many times I was unable to ascend basic stairs. If I was crouching for stealth and paused, it would stand me up when resuming the game blowing my cover. Little things like this took away from the experience and would have been relatively easy to fix. The graphicsThis game was a decent effort, but had a lot of room for improvement.

If I was crouching for stealth and paused, it would stand me up when resuming the game blowing my cover. Little things like this took away from the experience and would have been relatively easy to fix. The graphics were painfully average and quite bland. The story was nonexistent and I completed it in just over 5 hours.
    All that being said, there was something very addicting and rewarding about this this game. The control mechanics were very well done and the slow motion sniping and cut scenes never got old. There were some non-sniping parts of the game which lacked greatly. I feel they should have just stuck with the sniping portions.
    A very average game, but worth a play through if you can pick it up used in the bargain bin.

  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.
