    There are a lot of cool ideas here; the crafting system for example is robust and interesting, but it doesn’t make up for all the issues the game has. Tie that in with the complete lack of originality and Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 feels like a half-baked attempt at the genre. It could have been great; it SHOULD have been interesting, but in the end it just ends up frustrating and disappointing. There are much better games in this genre, and there is little reason to invest in this sniper’s mission.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is misguided by the unending trend of games going open-world. The idea may have been born with good intentions, but blatantly copying all of another series' structure is a bad look, undone much further by the fact that it does all of those same things very poorly. It's unclear for whom this game was made as it feels more like a middling title we rarely see anymore, possessing neither the polish of AAA nor the admirable quirks of an indie. It's a narrative bore, a technical dilemma, and a structural collapse. If fun was ever in the crosshairs, the subsequent shot is way off target.

    It's a very good game. I believe all those bugs can be fixed with update, it would be a lot worse if gameplay or sniper pechanics were awfulIt's a very good game.

    Is this FARCRY? No, but its helluva lot of fun. If your looking for a seamless but bland game stick to Call of Duty. This Game is made to haveIs this FARCRY? No, but its helluva lot of fun. If your looking for a seamless but bland game stick to Call of Duty. This Game is made to have fun with. After 14 hours of play I have NOT run into any major bugs. Its not the prettiest but if you want an open world and weapons to collect with no hand holding then this is it. Its a leap ahead of wild lands thats for sure. Full Review »

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3
    A great game held back by performance
    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a first person shooter that takes place in Georgia, the country
    You play as American Marine Captain Jon North attempting to prevent another cold war…
    The story sounds pretty generic, but things do start getting interested, and I did care for these character despite how generic they actually are.. one of them is basically elana fisher with longer hair and an accent..
    Despite the game being called sniper, this isn’t a sniper simulator…
    The words ghost and warrior hint at options… and that’s exactly what you get here
    This is an open world game with a base that you use to buy new weapons you unclock from completing missions or picking up off of enemies, as well as buy ammo and gear and choose your next mission…
    But this open world isn’t vast, it isn’t connected…
    it just exists…
    it’s a world to put missions into and nothing else..
    You have a buggy to drive around, but there are no other vehicles on the road and the ones off road are all locked…
    There are points of interest around the map though if you are into the ubisoft style clean up…
    Or you can stick to the 11 hour campaign
    The campaign is fun to get through, and challenging…
    Its satisfying scoping out the place with your drone, sniping out enemies from a distance and then going in for the objective, or being a ghost, sneaking in, taking enemues out silently while you try not to alert anyone or be caught on camera.. and then theres the warrior option of just going in guns blazing…
    There are mandatory do not get detection sections of the game, but for the most part.. youre free to tackle a mission any way youd like..
    You can even mix your play style up like I did…
    This means youre going to be unlocking perks in all 3 skill trees for sniper ghost and warrior, but if you prefer one play style then that means of course youll be more decked out for that style with the skill tree..
    Missions are what youd expect…
    Get a point on the map to go to and complete the objective.. nothing more..
    And despite the missions structure being the same throughout, the missions all felt unique thanks to the great level design this game has…
    The game felt fresh throughout…
    However the performance of this game brings all of the great parts down…
    For starts the load times…
    Theyre painful…
    Some missions take place on different sections of the map.. and to get to these sectiosn you have to deal with the games initial load screen..
    Which is 4 minutes long, I wish I was kidding, but the load time for this game is longer than this review…
    Its painful…
    The game also froze trying to load in 2 times….
    And the game would freeze and crash mid shot probably 3 or 4 times….
    its just not reliable…
    and its only made worse by again the 4 minute load time to get back into the game and the fact that checkpoints in missions are so awful…
    Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is enjoyable,
    The calculating, the scouting, the turning the dials of your scope to adjust to a targets distance..
    All of this makes the campaign so satisfying to get through…
    But the freezes, the crashes, the load times…
    Theyre going to annoy… so be prepared…
    I Give Sniper Ghost Warrior 3
    a 7.0/10
