  1. Sniper: Ghost Warrior isn't flawless, mainly due to a sub-par technical production and some mediocre run-and-gun shooting sections; nevertheless, the developers managed to bring us a very involving and atmospheric game, suited to everyone who has always been charmed by the sniper profession.
  2. Nice graphics but lackluster story and gameplay.
  3. Much scope for improvement. [Sept 2010, p.89]
  4. Unfortunately, Sniper is a "meh" experience with a very limited appeal; gamers with extreme patience and a passion for sniper rifles might enjoy themselves.
  5. We've seen all of Sniper: Ghost Warrior's tricks before, and in far superior games. [Issue#62,p.88]
  6. Tiny price or not, there are flaws every game should avoid. Starting with bugs, and other gameplay approximations that spawn frustration, when they are not simply getting the player plain angry. And as you no doubt have guessed, Sniper Ghost Warrior has all those flaws. Even for 40 euros, I'd recommend one less game in your collection, but more money to buy the next real one, which will be undoubtedly be better. After all, it's not like quality First Person Shooters with an enjoyable sniping experience are an unrealistic expectation to have for upcoming action games.
  7. Brilliant sniping mechanic; too bad you're spending most of your time fending off the poor game design in the sea of nauseating textures.

    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 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. Expand

    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 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.

    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
