    With Contracts, the Sniper Ghost Warrior series finally gets on the right track by focusing on the level design of closed environnements and featuring strategic gameplay.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts offers us a rather demanding but very enjoyable sniper experience.

    It feels like a reinvention of the series, and if this is the starting block that is built upon in further releases, I’m in.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts offers a lot in a surprisingly small package, however, with all the glitches and errors, there is just some guilty pleasure I get when I drop a sniper from 500m+. With a lackluster story mode that means relatively nothing, some graphics that are good but not great, an army of glitches at its disposal and no bullet X-Ray kill cam, this game is far from perfect, and at $40 maybe even a bit overpriced. When you think of all the content you get for that price however, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts just may be on your radar.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts has a few fresh ideas, but it takes several steps sideways steps as it looks to make a claim in the sniper game sub-genre. An experience that is often good, but never great.

    Despite remaining true to the essence of the franchise, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts has no elements to highlight in the FPS scene and may represent an option that attracts the attention of the public that remains true to this CI Games proposal, but nothing more.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts introduces a good new gameplay structure, only to waste it with lots of bugs, a lackluster enemy AI and quite bad graphics.

This type of approach and weapon forces the need for precision, after all, the bullet will not fly where we see crosshair. The wind can take it or fall under the influence of gravity and so we need to special system in the scope. The game offers really good sniping mechanics, of course it has its flaws like clumsy AI but from my perspective (huge fan of sniping) this game is totally worth its price! Expand

Many of theSniper Ghost Warrior Contracts I found to be a great idea of fun. It almost feels as a Sniper Elite, Far Cry, and Hitman mash up. Many of the in game mechanics from those games are implemented yet CI Games has implemented in them in a way that still feels fresh and well done. This might be the most enjoyment from the many games that released this year. It may not be the most unique , but the execution is there and while there were many great games this year I really had fun with this one. It's definitely refreshing after the likes of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. Definitely buy this game if your looking for an entertaining experience for your Xbox One and are fans of any of the games I mentioned similarities to. While not perfect in every way, the entertainment factor was there for me. Definitely worth checking out for fans of the genre. Expand

    Après le monde ouvert de Sniper GW 3, le studio polonais CI Games revient à de plus petites zones (mais assez grandes tout de même... et auAprès le monde ouvert de Sniper GW 3, le studio polonais CI Games revient à de plus petites zones (mais assez grandes tout de même... et au nombre de 5) avec son "Contracts". C'est l'occasion d'orienter ce nouvel épisode vers une structure très nettement inspirée des Hitman modernes : multiples chemins et cibles, défis à réaliser, l'instinct du tueur (très utile) et autant d'opportunités à saisir...

    Cependant, le mode "guidé" des Hitman reste absent et la carte un peu chiche n'indique que des vagues endroits délimités : à vous de chercher l'emplacement précis des objectifs, ce qui n'est pas plus mal sauf lorsque les endroits indiqués sur la carte disparaissent purement et simplement (bug !).

    Dommage qu'on ne puisse pas sauvegarder manuellement, car le jeu se prête plutôt bien à l'infiltration mais le principe retenu ici de la sauvegarde automatique limite les tentatives qu'on voudrait bien lui accorder. Cela étant, les ennemis sont rapidement nombreux et trouver le bon chemin sans se faire repérer n'est pas une mince affaire, surtout avec toutes ces caméras et ces tourelles automatiques ! cela dit, les niveaux restent suffisamment ouverts et à force de bien observer, on remarque quelques fenêtres de tir... ou une fenêtre tout court d'ailleurs.

    Evidemment, la solution la plus radicale reste la longue distance et de faire le ménage au fur et à mesure... y compris et surtout lorsqu'on vient de se faire repérer ! Or, ça tombe bien, car les mécaniques du snipe sont très bien rendues ici et très agréables, tout en étant plus réalistes que dans les épisodes précédents et pourvues de superbes ralentis. L'IA est loin d'être débile et il faudra à la fois garder son sang-froid et planifier ses points de retraite... euh je veux dire ses points de repli quand ça sent un peu trop le roussi.

    L'interface est plutôt bien faite, sauf dans les menus, bizarres, ou celui du changement d'armes ou gadgets, un peu laborieux. La jouabilité elle-même n'appelle en tout cas pas la critique et en vérité, on continuerait de bien s'amuser dans ces 5 environnements dont les graphismes (c'est le Cry Engine) sont très proprets et sensiblement plus beaux qu'avant.

    On continuerait si les saccades impromptues et pas bienvenues n'étaient pas aussi fréquentes (c'est le Cry Engine... pas vraiment maîtrisé ici !). Sur la X, ça reste néanmoins tout-à-fait jouable mais l'expérience en pâtit (par exemple, je zoome à 100 m : paf, un ralentissement flagrant, important, puis ça se stabilise... et ainsi de suite). Il faut dire que le jeu n'est pas cappé à 30 mais à 60... et qu'il est incapable de maintenir ce taux.

    L'autre souci, c'est les temps de chargement : le briefing n'est pas zappable, sans doute pour masquer le chargement lui-même (?) puis ça continue de charger encore un peu après, ce qui nous mène à grosso merdo 2 mn à 2 mn 30 pour commencer une nouvelle carte ou revenir à l'endroit où on était. Heureusement, en cours de jeu, pour charger le précédent point de passage, ça ne prend... que quelques secondes ! mais putain, quand même.

    Enfin, après ce bilan technique assez mitigé, ce sont surtout les bugs qui ont raison de notre patience : des bugs évidents et gros comme des maisons qui dénotent un manque de finition très alarmant. Là, je suis sur la dernière zone, il reste un objectif et j'ignore où aller, où chercher, car l'endroit délimité sur la carte s'est fait la malle !

    Déjà deux patches depuis la sortie le 22 novembre... mais va falloir attendre encore un peu. Quel dommage, car SGW Contracts a tout pour devenir un grand. Quand il sera enfin..."fini"...

    Epilogue : le troisième patch est sorti ce 5 décembre et j'ai pu finir la dernière carte en Sibérie, pas piquée des hannetons celle-là ! la zone de l'objectif qui restait est enfin revenue et j'ai pu terminer le niveau. J'ai relancé ensuite une autre carte pour constater que là aussi, le jeu tourne toujours comme une patate... mais j'ai découvert à cette occasion une autre façon d'accomplir l'un des objectifs.

    Ce qui constitue l'une des grandes forces de ce Contracts : sa rejouabilité...! je remonte donc la note à 6 en guise d'encouragement pour le développeur, encore brouillon mais plein de bonne volonté...

Graphics is very blurry due to low resolution (looks like 900p or even lower) and textures from PS2 era. It's all masked by the blur filters which makes it even worse... There is absolutely no Xbox One X support! In 2019, and in the game like this!? It's pathetic... Ci Games still lives in their own world, where Xbox One X and PS4 Pro doesn't exist... If you saw this game on YT in the PC version and expect something similar on Xbox One X than better stay away from this because you'll be very dissapointed. There are many other problems with this game, like stupid AI, glitches, and short campaign, but it's typical for this developer so there's no surprise... Expand

Play testers.. youve heard of them yeh ?..a 5 yr old could have spotted more bugs and glitches than apparently the game developer play testers did, if they even tested the game in the first place, If your going to create a game for the public too enjoy, dont send it out half completed, and they want to make a sequel, i cant wait for that one Expand
