“…hugely satisfying, especially for gamers that enjoy sniping in first-person shooters.”
– Editorial
“In game terms, stealth is a big part of Sniper's challenge. Because many of the missions take place in the Amazon jungle, there will often be plenty of thick vegetation to hide in.”
“I can see appeal to both ways of playing Sniper: one for its increased sense of satisfaction for hitting the shot -- complete with bullet chase cam to the perfect strike; the other for its simple pleasure of hitting a steady stream of headshots.”
– Editorial
“The great thing about Sniper: Ghost Warrior is that the “vision cone” of the game is insanely huge, so even though you might be hundreds of feet away from an enemy, they are more than capable of seeing you through a crack in a fence, or from across a canyon. It's a weird little element of the game that I found to be very impressive, something that was oddly realistic.”

About This Game

When the democratic government of Isla Trueno is overthrown, an aggressive and hostile military command rises to power. A highly trained special ops unit is sent in to help the rebels accomplish objectives that only a sniper can handle. In addition to intense sniper missions, players will also take part in a variety of assault scenarios where their prowess with weapons will be a huge help to the undermanned rebels. Sniper: Ghost Warrior seeks to challenge players in new ways so that the game is both demanding and entertaining.
Developed by City Interactive’s dedicated next-gen games studio, Sniper: Ghost Warrior delivers an impressive visual and technological gaming experience and features a realistic ballistics system that measures bullet trajectory, bullet drop and environmental effects such as wind, fog & rain. Encompassing a wide array of single and multiplayer levels, players will encounter a variety of challenging terrain. Players take on the role of a Ghost Warrior, an elite sniper in a highly trained special ops unit, whose unique skills in the art of stalking, target detection, surveillance and shooting accuracy will determine mission success. Covert missions force players to operate undetected as they attempt to eliminate hostile enemies one head shot at a time.

Key Features:

The concept is appealling, the execution rather mediocre.

The field of view is excessively narrow, and this hurts the quality of the gameplay during the non-sniping parts (which are several), the three difficulties do not differ from the AI quality as much as they differ from how inaccurate and clueless the enemy can be at the lowest difficutly, and how absurdly aware and accurate they are on the hardest.

For a game from 2010 I would expect a better graphic department, especially being City Interactive an established game developer with several 3D titles on its record; however, even maxing out the settings the game looks poorly executed, with textures that, at times, seem to come straight out of 1999. The contrast between the good level design, the beautiful scenarios the Chrome Engine 4 creates and the poor texture quality generates a terrible outcome, that not even a breathtaking story and a great sound department can compensate.

After having played for an hour it will appear clear how this game was developed with console players in mind, and eventually ported to PC; the result, as you may imagine, is quite atrocious for a first person shooter.
In the end the gameplay experience is original, but the terrible execution doesn't make this a product worth your time.

If you need ratings:

Graphic: 6/10
Sound: 8/10
Gameplay: 4/10
Longevity: 5/10

Overall: 5/10

Don't get fooled by the name. You actually are no sniper. Your enemies are. Even if they only use pistols or throwing knives, they somehow manage to hit you in long range; accurately. In fact you aren't even a "Ghost Warrior". This game originally was intended to be the sequel of Rambo: The Video Game. But "Ghost Warrior" simply sounded cooler, so they named it so.

If you liked Call of Duty: Ghosts you will totally love this game. If not.. well.. don't do the same mistake I did. Even if it's on sale do yourself a favor and DON'T buy this game!

But hey, it's a City Interactive game so what should you expect anyway?

You have to be able to tolerate the bugs and cheaters if you want to play this game but if you can do that then you will enjoy a good amount of this game.

- extremely or distressingly bad or serious.
- extremely unpleasant or disagreeable.
- used to emphasize the extent of something unpleasant or bad.

That sums up this game pretty well.

So I launch the game, video and menu background are grey as well as upside down. Reading up on the issue, it has been reported as a Windows 8 problem. Nothing has been done.

Started the game. First mission. NPC buddy tells me "You are good to go!".
2 seconds later I got shot at and killed as I was never good to go in the first place.

Quitting the game works very well and is fast to execute.

Steer clear of this trash.

(Please note that I almost never write negative reviews, so this game is indeed terrible.)

A decent sniper game with decent bullet ballistics and a decent bulletcam.

Would overall be a decent game if not for some really annoying bugs & glitches.

These bugs & glitches include but not limited to;

- The player not being able to stay still on stairs

- The enemies seeing you when they are not supposed

- The enemies not seeing you when they are supposed to.

- Too many unnecessary cutscenes.

-Too many unnecessary mission objectives that are just f**king annoying after a point.

Some Cons of this game also are;

- Very linear gameplay.

- Gets really boring after the first 3-4 missions. (Again, linear gameplay)

- The automatic rifles are just ridicilous. I have never seen worst. (You'll see what I mean if you play the game)

- In hard difficulty, it feels like all your enemies are veteran snipers who were born with the ability of sniping. They have no problem shooting you with a pistol from 200m. I mean sure, the game should be hard but not unrealistically hard. You can make the AI smarter or increase Damage taken or increase wind speed and change environmental factors, but if you are being hit by a pistol bullet from 200m away and almost dying from that shot, then that just makes the game stupid and annoying... Not "difficult".

In short, Sniper: Ghost Warrior is an extremely average game. There is nothing special about it that makes it stand out. If you like sniper games in general and if stupid bugs, glitches and unnecessary things don't bother you, then you can try this game.

I'd give it a 6/10.
