    Go behind enemy lines with the ultimate modern military shooter. Choose your missions across an unforgiven open world.

    Stay low and leave no traces in this third game of the tactical shooter franchise. Set in a modern day conflict based in Eastern Europe, players in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will be thrust into the role of a sniper caught between three warring factions, played out in a realistic and immersive environment. Dig deep into the Ghost Warrior DNA as you choose between taking out your targets up close or from a distance, while at the same time focusing on your survival through evasion and stealth. Non-linear, sandbox-style gameplay on large open-ended maps gives players the flexibility to play and replay the missions in a number of different ways. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will offer intriguing challenges for tactically-minded gamers, while still remaining accessible to first-person shooter fans.

    I found Ghost Warrior 3 to be better as a whole than the quality of its components suggested. Of course the game should’ve been more polished at launch, but I still had surprisingly good time with it thanks to its well-designed open world, a satisfying weapons system and a fairly high degree of freedom in choosing ways to complete missions.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 could have been a great war sandbox, in which you enjoy every step of your attacks: planning, studying your enemy and especially taking the shots. But it´s many technical failures spoil the experience.

    If you enjoy open world stealth games, this one will satisfy your needs. It's not an actual sandbox, but it offers a certain degree of freedom that makes it very interesting and rewarding.

    A quite decent sniping and stealth game is hidden behind the completely needless open world approach, the extremely long loading times and the atrocious story.

    There's plenty of fun to be squeezed out of this despite numerous technical missteps, but unduly complacent, overly familiar mission design holds it back. [July 2016, p.82]

    Ghost Warrior 3 has been touted as an open-world game, but aside from some snowy areas, pretty much all the environments are identical in appearance—and filled to the brim with near-pointless and repetitive side objectives.
  7. 30
    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a promising and somewhat ambitious concept that’s plagued with some monstrous game-breaking technical issues, inconsistent AI and some downright curious design choices. Some of it can doubtless be patched but as it stands, this is far from a finished product.

Don't know what the fuss is all aobout but heard about lots of technical issues at the beginning. I really enjoy the gameplay and solutions used. What is realy missing - Multiplayer mode. That sort of game is definately meant for that and the only information is that they are working on it. What was the point of releasing this game before it was ready. Still hope they will make it fast as I still have a very high apetite for that. Expand

A lot of small bug fixes etc, but I'm more than happy to look past that (and wait for the patch) as the game is fun and ticks all the right boxes for me. There are some very frustrating AI moments, where enemies will appear out of nowhere once a shot is fired - that NEEDS fixing, but I look at this like "Far Cry x Sniper Elite"... I'm happy with that! If you like first person games, open world shooters... go for it I say! Expand

Buggy as hell but still everyone wants it. It's really good game! Pitty that reviewers smash it just because of bugs. It's small develoeper after all! Give it a chance.

    I prefer to play interesting but buggy gameplay, rather than well polished boring, linear game.

    - bugs , glitches
    -to long loading screens
    - freezes
    - no 'wow' campaign
    conclusion:
    city interactive brought there best game yet ( i guess ) with great gameplay and great open world , but the technical issues are to big to speak as a must have , if they don't fix this then i don't see a bright future for this game
    So you better wait for a price drop

It is aI don't usually do reviews on games, however, I felt that I truly needed to put a review in on this game. This game basically sucks. It is a cheap knockoff of Metal Gear Solid. If you have played MGS, you will know exactly what I am talking about. The first problem that I have, and this stems from being in the military, is that if you have a weapon, such as a sniper rifle that can shoot from over 800 yards away, there isn't a chance in hell to figure out where the target is at. if the shooter is in cover or is in the prone position you will never see him. Secondly, shooting the same weapon with a silencer on it.....i don't care HOW MANY shots you shoot, there is NO WAY that you would be able to figure out where the person is shooting from.

    Then there is the long load times as mentioned before. Also the collecting of resources. This game does have the potential to be an excellent game. But people need to think before throwing something out on the market.
