    Satisfying stealth and shooting make Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 a notable improvement over its predecessor.

    The downside of this more deliberate pacing is that the lack of variation. Every mission goes as follows: take out a few guys or sneak past them if there are too many, get to a high vantage point, rain death from above. Not the worst design in the world, but pretty predictable. [April 2013, p.86]

    It’s better and more focused in the sniping core mechanics than its predecessor. If you can ignore the irrelevant story and the minimalistic multiplayer you might discover a decent shooting experience.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 feels like a bad parody of military shooters, but with poorly textured environments and sub-par mechanics. I like being the lone-wolf sniper as much as the next shooter fan, but City Interactive fumbles the power-trip from start to finish.

    Ghost Warrior will not stay in anyone's memory and probably is more worth playing the few sniper missions than other FPSs already have. It should be more fun.

    Think of every single sniping mission in Call of Duty all crammed together into four hours of nonsense terrorist stuff, but not nearly as good and you have Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. It’s a beautiful display of third world foliage, but you won’t be exploring it in any detail, great or not. [May 2013, p74]

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is a broken, horrible game. It's so bad that I almost feel sorry for the developers, who tried to make a sequel that is bigger, better and prettier. Unfortunately they failed miserably and gave us a game that's inferior in every way.

    There was a lot of hype about this game, and really excited to buy it.
    Well first thing when you turn on the game WTF are those awful
    There was a lot of hype about this game, and really excited to buy it.
    Well first thing when you turn on the game WTF are those awful graphics Should this be Cryengine 3 ?
    The first Ghost Warrior looked better, with much more vegetation e richer environments
    The only thing that looks really great is the bullet cam.
    Gameplay the ballistic are great, taking in consideration breath, heartbeat, wind distance ecc. It's satisfyng to make long distance kills.
    What i really dont understand is why are the so few bullet cams During 1 entire mission you maybe see max 1 or 2 bulletcams.
    Ai is decent and less bugs then the first game. The new thermal visor is a great addition and really big help.
    Campaign is quite short with about 5 hours on max difficulty. The story... is completely useless.

    Multiplayer ONLY 2 maps. No customization for the matches aim aid with red dot is always on... i at least want play hardcore with no aim aids )

    Conclusion Some few improvements over the first game, less bugs. On consoles the graphics are a complete joke.
    Better then the first game Not really.

    I didn't think the sequel could be any worse than the first but they certainly achieved a new level of abysmal. Spotter AI is useless, enemyI didn't think the sequel could be any worse than the first but they certainly achieved a new level of abysmal. Spotter AI is useless, enemy AI is useless this is by far one of the worst sniper games out there. Not only do the graphics pop in, there are pauses throughout the game during key events. The graphics are just the worst and the story is so bland, I skipped every cut-scene I could due to just not caring about the characters anymore. I just wanted to get through the game and toss the disk on the shelf. Expand

    Poor Man's Call of Duty

    If Sniper Ghost Warrior sucked, this means Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 also sucks. Seriously, this is just a Budget
    Poor Man's Call of Duty

    If Sniper Ghost Warrior sucked, this means Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 also sucks. Seriously, this is just a Budget Shooter that nobody cares about, considering how easily forgettable it is.

    Not only that, but the PlayStation 3 version has better reviews than the Xbox 360 or PC versions. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sniper:_Ghost_Warrior_2

    Plus, Graphics are the ONLY good thing Ghost Warrior 2 has going for it. Other than that, there have been reports of Bugs and Glitches, Bad Enemy AI, etc., and I wouldn't be at all surprised if any of this stuff is true.
