“…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 most realistic sniping experience in a video game ever, right down to managing your breathing for increased accuracy of sniper shots.
  • Enjoy a fully realistic ballistic system that accounts for bullet trajectory, including bullet drop and environmental effects such as wind, fog & rain.

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

If you want play real sniper games buy Sniper Elite series you wont regret there
but here however you will regret
well let see game is called Ghost warior, hmm first thing come to my mind is silent killer, so you shot and kill a guy from distance and you checked before if anyone would see a body and you think noone will? wrong thinking a guy will hear a shot even if you using a silencer, they have special ears you know, you are in prone position 2km away they will see you without scope hmm why? they have eagle eyes, Im not sure if any of levels is actually can be done in stealth and by that I mean if you can kill anyone and noone will hear it
however save your money for Sniper Elite if you want a real sniping game

Don't get fooled by the name. You actually are no sniper. You're 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?

I got this game for $1.00 from bundle stars.
if you don't know what bundle stars is I suggest you do some research.

for $1.00 I highly recommend this game.
it starts off exactly like some COD: Modern Warfare game did.
weapon on table, pick it up, shoot this.
No that was not a spoiler as a lot of these games start that way to teach you the game's controls.
the game has a nice way of sniping in it. adjust for wind and distance.
not too far into the game yet but far enough where I know I got my $1.00 worth.
I would not recommend this game at full price because there are many other games at that price that are worth playing over this one.
this game is well worth $1.00.
it has its bugs but seems like it will be fun to get the achievements from.
no clue about multiplayer except that you have to tell it to give you a multiplayer profile instead of just pressing the multiplayer button and playing.



I have beaten the game on normal and am replying on hard or whatever they call hard on this game. main difference is no red dot to show where the bullet will land. farther away someone is the higher up you aim. using a guide to fin the secrets I missed during the first play through. unless I can find people playing MP I will never be able to get the MP achievements. good single player game. very short. worth $1.00 including all dlc. no longer on sale for $1.00 but it may get that cheap again.

I was able to get over the graphics, I was able to get over the terrible enemy AI, but I was not able to get over being killed by hitscanning enemies over and over again on Hard Mode. The ONLY things that made playing this game fun were the corny voice-overs and the super unrealistic sniper rifle kills. I wouldn't play this unless you got it as a part of a bundle, which I did (thank the ghillie suit gods).
