    Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is a prime example of sequel done right. A few technical issues that highlight the mid-line entry of the game don’t dampen the experience. The sniping, its core tenet, is where the money is. About half a mile away, in someone’s head. Go and get your money’s worth.

    Boring narrative aside, Sniper Elite Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is superb at delivering its bread and ballistics gameplay. Focused purely on the art of the kill, CI Games has crafted numerous detailed sandboxes to become the ultimate long-distance predator inside of, resulting in a game that forges ahead and doubles down on its own unique brand of hold-your-breath gunplay. Pure cathartic and exhilarating action with every squeeze of the trigger.

    Rather complete and benefiting from a significant visual improvement, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 has been able to emancipate itself from its predecessor without denigrating it. While remaining faithful to the principles of the first episode, this sequel relies on immersive and spectacular ultra-long-distance spots. The developers have chosen a path that may not appeal to everyone, but in our opinion, these sequences provide additional variety. The free phases, between action and infiltration, are still present and the overall experience is very solid. CI Games is mastering its subject more and more and demonstrating it once again.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is a title that continues the path started by its predecessor, placing the thrill of a mercenary sniper’s life in a simple, linear and somewhat bland story. A rather predictable but all in all enjoyable experience, with some limitations (and some oddities) in artificial intelligence and an average graphics/sound department.

    While Ghost Warrior Contracts is nothing extraordinary and does not evolve the genre in any particular way, it still offers a pleasant experience to both fans of the series and the genre.

    Contracts 2 nails everything around being a sniper, but feels a bit more flawed when it comes to the rest of mechanics. However, if you like the series, you’ll have a good time with it.

    Carefully engineered sniper action that’s let down by frequent departures into close combat, exposing weak gunplay and a lack of polish.

I'd give it a 9 but since it's only $40 it's an easy 10 for value. The only thing missing is airplanes and choppers going overhead to sync/mask your shots on loud rifles. I love the story, killing Mid east dictators is my bread and butter. Long range shots with range and gravity is very satisfying. There's lots of great weapons and customization, great gadgets (the remote sniper system is awesome) and guess what? So far zero bugs and I'm halfway through the game. That's a big deal for these more "budget" games but honestly i keep forgetting this isn't a $60 AAA title other than having "only" 6 missions. I love Contracts 1 especially for the winter theme and now I have a desert theme. These 2 games together are some of my favorite. I stayed away for a long time due to the budget price and early version bugs but that was really dumb of me. The DLC is good as well, I got the deluxe version after having so much fun with the dlc frim contracts 1.

    9/10 for great gameplay and story, but since it's only 40 it's an easy 10 (especially with lack of bugs).

    If you even think you might like this BUY IT. I've only recently started buying games for full price (i can afford it now) because there are some devs i think deserve full support and these guys do it.

    All try Rebellions Zombie Army 4 that has great sniping as well.

    If i could wish for 1 thing it would be to add more bass to the sniper sounds sometimes and also a DLC pack with 2 more levels for 15 bucks.

    Btw i played on PS4 pro was graphics in my eyes are top notch. Great textures, large levels with lots of details especially on terrain and the frame rate was perfect. I do wish the enemy AI was notch better but it's still great. I wish they had ways to mask the sound when i fired with airplanes but I've already said that. Also wish when i fired long distance and there weren't sniper it would take longer to find me but it's a game and it needs to kinda be this way. For example when i clear an outpost in real life the next outpost would be on high alert but this is for fun and that's what this game does. It's semi realistic fun. For $40. I've had more fun for 40 than many games for 60.

    Good job devs. Rarely do I get my money's worth (so far this year RE8 was perfect, biomutant was great and Disco Elysium was really good. Only outriders was kinda hit and miss, and Disco and Outriders were so buggy the game wouldn't run without crashing for a month or two, no crashes here)

    I almost forgot to mention there is a very nice amount of rpg style progression through earning money, finding Intel and eliminating bounties. I need this usually to drive me to progress and give me a sense of strength as I earn new weapons, gadgets and playstyles.

    The game is beautiful both in terms of graphics and in terms of intelligence and beauty, but it is repetitive

Graphics were VERY good imo, the story was quite compelling, the gameplay was very fun, and it was a good challenge. Took me about 6 hours to complete, and it retailed for $40. FPS isn't my fav, and sniping is hard to make a full game out of, so props to them. Expand

Beautifully made, straightforward and delivering tons and tons of fun. That is as long as popping bad guys heads with a rifle after a hard day at work is your definition of fun.
    Also, I feel I have to mention the outstanding great sniping mechanics - just about hard enough to make it a real challenge for a middle-aged amateur like me and making You feel like a genuine sharpshooter after scoring a headshot on a target 500m away while not requiring long hours of training to do so.

    I would rate it easily at 8/10,.

    Well done devs, I will definitely try your other games in the future.

    a great game, as concept, as gameplay.
    notable issue is the AI, that goes from totally idiotic (guys talking, one headshot and the others goes around bored) to impossible detection from 500m and game over...from mob with an AK.

    But the 5/10 is for the main thing in a first person game: aiming.
    using a controller is PAINFUL.
    This is not a game for a console.
