    With only a few hiccups, Sniper Elite: Contracts finds the fine line between action arcade and sniper simulation. While the story might be forgettable, landing the perfect shot from 500 meters away never stops being awesome.

    Some sound and physics shenanigans don’t stop this from being a fun, if occasionally frustrating, game that goes towards redeeming CI Games for the previous game’s missteps.

    Contracts is a signal to the world that the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise is no longer content on being a niche title. It is coming for the stealth big boys.

    If you are looking for a good sniping game, Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts could be a good choice for you but, if you hope to find a full-fledged FPS with a worthy plot, the market will be able to offer products of a completely different level.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior: Contracts isn't the prettiest game and certainly not the most accessible, but it's an enjoyable budget title, and worth picking up for fans of stealth-based action.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts launches with a budget-friendly price but still feels undercooked.

    Contracts is a good option for hardcore fans of the series, but its flaws make it harder to recommend to a wider audience. It is expected, though, that upcoming patches will make it a much more appealing experience.

    I give a shot this game and it was great and better than previous sniper ghost warrior series btw I like SGW2

    graphics is great
    Ai is pretty fine but I played on the deadeye mode
    5 challenging open-world
    there's also snipers and rival snipers(for bounty hunt)
    the funny moment put 5 trap mines, then let the target step it and boom lol
    and AWESOME BALLISTIC MASK
    The Future Is Now Old Man!

    I hope they add more challenging open-world maps and new weapons and gadgets in this game

    Totally worth for money and you won't regret it.

    I preordered this game because I’ve played & own most of CIG games (SGW3 being my favorite) and I’m excited to say that this game has evolvedI preordered this game because I’ve played & own most of CIG games (SGW3 being my favorite) and I’m excited to say that this game has evolved substantially over previous offerings, this game has great replay value, maps are huge it plays and feels so smooth the world is beautiful which makes this shooter so immersive.

    SGWC offers five large sandboxes, each with five missions, and in these missions you're required to assassinate someone, though sometimes they require the retrieval of some object. It’s a stealth game at heart. So expect a stealth game with gloriously sniper gunplay.

    Importantly SGWC really feels tense when you play. Tension is at the heart of a good stealth game, and SGWC has it in spades. SGWC features both singleplayer campaign and multiplayer mode. I'll give this one a BUY so go get you're self a copy you won't regret it..

    I like it. It's not exactly groundbreaking or anything, but it's pretty fun. I'd recommend checking it out.

NotThe story is awful, the voice acting is mediocre at best but flat out bad at worst, but the gameplay is surprisingly fun. It's very open. Not on a certain scale of MGSV, but still open. Guns feel very impactful leaving behind dismembered enemies and tons of blood, which, the details in that regard are done very well in this game. Better than most modern games. My only main complaint is it's length. This game is only around 8 - 10 hours long. That might not sound too short, but there's only 4 or 5 levels. And you can only do so much on those levels before it gets repetitive. Hopefully SGW:C2 will improve upon this.

    With all that out of the way, would I recommend this? Mostly. If you like Sniper Elite, big yes. If you just want a shooter to play for no particular reason, I'd still give it a go. The game is fun, and that's mostly all that matters in some cases. I would not play this for it's story or dialogue however, because it's genuinely awful, especially most of the voice acting. As for the console versions, stay far away from them! They suffer from abysmal performance, visuals, controls, and loading times! It's really bad all around on console! Don't touch those versions!

    Its just another bad Ghost Warrior game, like all previous. It's EXTREMELY boring.
    No any interesting mechanics. You know, im kinda tired of gameplay, which was introduced almost ten years ago in FC3: im tired of throwing rocks, making stealth kills so that a person who stands in 5 meters doesnt hear any noises.
    Missions are now just bunch of tasks, it really look like hitman, but still dont give you really unique locations which you enjoy to explore, dont give you a real reasons to replay the mission.
    Very few content, including just several rifles and secondary guns. Different bullets mechanic is not that impressive, it doesnt save the day.
    Aiming system was meant to be very realistics, with a wind influencing on trajectory of the bullet, physics of falling on distance...tbh even Battlefield 3 could offer you better sniper experience. In this game its made so casual, that there even no joy to kill enemies. Moreover, i was laughing lot, when i found out...that in the BUILDING wind INFLUENCE ON THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR BULLET. You guys even didnt work on such things, is there anything left to discuss?
    Yes, still there are some. Like very dumb AI: imagine the patrol. There are two guys standing. You making a kill of the first one. What the other guy should do, when he understand there is a sniper?
    HE IS SLOWLY CROUCHING AND LOOKING FOR THE ENEMY. Its NOT ALWAYS the case, when your enemies firstly taking cover, and only then searching for you. Btw they will find you even if you are hiding in 500 meters and will shoot you back.
    And yeah, slow motion in this game really sucks. It doesnt stand even close to what Sniper Elite offers. Its just a flying bullet and a death of an enemy with a level of action like in CS:GO. Its not interesting at all to watch on this, so i even turned it off in settings.
    Any pros? Maybe graphics is good. I think this is all what positive i found in Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts.
    All-in-all, the game is really poor on both mechanics and experience. Locations are not interesting to explore, mechanics are not interesting to experiment with. It feels like a mini-game of Far Cry 5.
    I dont recommend this to buy and dont recommend those devs to make a fifth trial on sniper ghost warrior. Will you ever understand, that this is not what you can do the best?

The errors are so numerous is just plain not worth playing, you can get stuck on a railroad tie, die from shooting a man in the head from a certain window, your gadgets fail to work, the sound gets supper glitchy and you can shoot through enemies.
