    Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is smaller in scale, but overall a definite improvement over the lacklustre previous entry in the franchise. A diverse set of levels, a lot of weapon variety and - last but not least - great sniping gameplay are the main reasons to give this title a chance.

    We are facing a niche game that stealth fans will appreciate. Although Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts knows very well how to take advantage of the ingredients of its formula, it fails to fully meet the expectations we would have for a title of its kind.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts offers a realistic but at the same time imperfect sniper experience. The improved mission system creates a balance between freedom and potty wandering. However, the difference per difficulty level is too large.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts has good ideas, but displays a number of drawbacks that can cause the work to choke a little, such as AI, camera movement or shooting sensation.

    While it's shooter mechanics and open mission structure, make the game fun to play. There are also plenty of technical flaws or poor design choices that ruin that same fun experience. Glitchy maps, weird AI movements and a poor story make this shooting adventure feel mediocre instead of great.

    While making a tricky headshot is always satisfying, the environments, enemies, tasks, and plot simply don’t grab your attention in the way they need to. It doesn’t help that the dull enemy dialogue, where present, has a tendency to loop if you linger nearby. AI is greatly improved from the last game, but there are still line-of-sight issues. Ultimately, the experience doesn’t have the tension of Sniper Elite, nor the ingeniousness or replayability of Hitman. Sadly, SGWC misses its mark. [Issue@#171, p.92]

    The end result is disappointing and frustrating.

    Excellent sniping game. GW Sniper Contracts gives you freedom to PLAY the game how you want to play and is a real breath of fresh air from allExcellent sniping game. GW Sniper Contracts gives you freedom to PLAY the game how you want to play and is a real breath of fresh air from all those supposedly AAA titles that insist on taking the action out of your hands with follow me, do this now, do that now and here’s another cut scene every couple of minutes. Sniper Contracts entertains none of that nonsense, the only break in your control over the action is the kill-cam which triggers when you pull off a really nice shot showing you the path of your bullet in slow motion as it traces towards your target and thumping home in a satisfying manner. And who wouldn’t want to see that every time.
    The aiming process is really intuitive and only takes a few minutes to get used to, allowing you to pull off truly rewarding shots at distance. Maps are interesting, complex and detailed and graphically the game is solid with good textures and detail.
    Save points may be a minor niggle for some. There is no manual save but I don’t agree with reviewers who complain about being sent back to do huge sections of missions again when they die. There are enough checkpoint auto saves across the maps to keep any decent gamer happy. Overall, a great game.

Glad they ditched the open world formula, because the maps in Contracts are well-designed and fun to explore. The new sniping system feels hard to master at the beginning, but when you figure it out, it's satisfying. I feel it's worth the price they're asking. Expand

Graphics are very impressive and its fun to snipe. Maps are good, usually allowing multiple ways to take on a problem. There are som different load outs and gadgets that are fun to play around with. The AI is a bit hit-and-miss, sometimes its really good with enemies sneaking around the map coming up behind you if you try and camp for to long - sometimes they are just standing around or acting weird. Defently worth your money and time, im still enjoying it got to third map so far. Expand

The only downside is that it's very hard to line up a shot with the wind indicator. They really need to bring back the red dot as an option for lining up kills. If it had that, I would have given this a solid 8 or 9. Expand
