  1. Sniper: Ghost Warrior isn't flawless, mainly due to a sub-par technical production and some mediocre run-and-gun shooting sections; nevertheless, the developers managed to bring us a very involving and atmospheric game, suited to everyone who has always been charmed by the sniper profession.
  2. Nice graphics but lackluster story and gameplay.
  3. Poor AI and insane difficulty gets between you and the sniping in Sniper: Ghost Warrior.
  4. Unfortunately, Sniper is a "meh" experience with a very limited appeal; gamers with extreme patience and a passion for sniper rifles might enjoy themselves.

    Unfairness and all-around cruddiness negate the fun of long distance malice. [Oct 2010, p.86]
  6. The game is suffering from an identity crisis as it cannot decide wether to be a standard first person shooter or a game that focuses on sniping and stealth combat. Low production values and sloppy design doesn´t exactly help either.
  7. Brilliant sniping mechanic; too bad you're spending most of your time fending off the poor game design in the sea of nauseating textures.

    It just goes to show how little critics know about the game play or interest of so many gamers. Yes the game does not compare to MW2 orIt just goes to show how little critics know about the game play or interest of so many gamers. Yes the game does not compare to MW2 or greater franchise games. But it does deliver a gaming expierence by trying to do something different, gets you involved and provides you with some much needed action and excitement. Expand

    This game was a decent effort, but had a lot of room for improvement. There were a lot of simple bugs that hurt the game play. Many times IThis game was a decent effort, but had a lot of room for improvement. There were a lot of simple bugs that hurt the game play. Many times I was unable to ascend basic stairs. If I was crouching for stealth and paused, it would stand me up when resuming the game blowing my cover. Little things like this took away from the experience and would have been relatively easy to fix. The graphics were painfully average and quite bland. The story was nonexistent and I completed it in just over 5 hours.
    All that being said, there was something very addicting and rewarding about this this game. The control mechanics were very well done and the slow motion sniping and cut scenes never got old. There were some non-sniping parts of the game which lacked greatly. I feel they should have just stuck with the sniping portions.
    A very average game, but worth a play through if you can pick it up used in the bargain bin.

    This game is really lacking in everything, ending was non-existent and for a game supposedly based on sniping very little properly takesThis game is really lacking in everything, ending was non-existent and for a game supposedly based on sniping very little properly takes place. Most missions involve "stealth" which usually means kill everyone so there's no one left to see you anyway. Such an approach shouldn't be viable on the hardest difficulty, then there are the the non-sniper parts which are completely pointless Expand

    Really a terribly bad game. Frustrating movement, and horrible gun mechanics make this near impossible to enjoy. It's only redeeming qualityReally a terribly bad game.

Multiplayer is even worse.
