“…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.”

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 is a generic, no-name game with a few bugs.The entire concept of this game is that the one element that is only a portion of other games – the sniper mode – is the entire focus. The problem with focusing on one element of a game is that you need to do that element extremely well in order to be successful. While this game does do this well – the camera angles and feeling you get while sniping is very good.Sniper: Ghost Warrior puts you in the midst of a deadly conflict in South America. It’s your duty as an American soldier to assist the rebels in overthrowing the dictator of this fictional country. Combat locations are varied, from urban streets to the sweltering humid jungles. There’s no shortage of action, and like the locations, the gameplay is varied.There’s nothing terrible about this game, and there's also nothing terribly original either. There are some technical issues which keep it from ever being considered a classic. Some of the glitches you'll encounter include clipping graphics and control command errors. In some instances you can see through walls and other structures. Unfortunately it also appears the A.I. has this ability as they can pinpoint your location with uncanny accuracy once you’ve fired off a shot.A sniper’s life isn’t all sunshine and lollipops, so expect the unexpected, along with some frustrating elements you will have little control over.Despite the clipping, the graphics are well done, creating spacious environments such as the villages and jungle areas. There isn’t much story to concern you, just follow orders and keep yourself alive.Like Splinter Cell, there is a meter to determine your level of stealth in relation to the enemy's perception. It will indicate the degree the enemy is aware of your presence, so you’ll always have instant feedback on your progress making the stealth segments more exciting. Ghost Warrior is a bit like a basically excellent rough diamond, that no one wanted to polish any further. It's got good ideas and good visuals, but nowadays, that alone just isn't enough to be able to keep up with the competition.Overall 6/10.

I'm just going to list a few points to keep this brief;

  • Enemies are stone deaf
  • You may be a sniper, but even with assault rifles every single enemy is a better shot than you
  • There was less eratic wind in the movie 'Twister'
  • Your assult rifle seems to work like a sniper rifle, need to be prone + fire single shots for them to hit
  • Secondary pistol has the effective range of a wooden spoon
  • To complete ACT 1 you must eliminate a target and run to evac, however the game doesn't care if you kill target or not
  • The game features copious amounts of foaliage
  • Stealth is unecassry 90% of the time, in the event you must remain silent, it's just a matter of moving along an assigned path as the enemies are conviently looking the other direction

One of the ♥♥♥♥tiest games I've ever played. Campaign is filled with tedious stealth sections and "do exactly this or fail instantly" events, teammate AI is practically nonexistent, enemies have perfect accuracy at any distance, and the weapons that aren't sniper rifles can barely hit anything.

Story does nothing to compensate. It's so unengaging that I didn't realise at first when it switched perspective to another soldier. It's a pure excuse plot with nothing interesting or memorable.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior is not fun to play. It's not even good for a laugh. It's just plain bad. Avoid.

Linear, scripted, interesting/sometimes ridiculous AI response time and reaction, stealth and sniping = entertaining.

Game has decent graphics, but the mechanics are a bit off... some of the mechanics are kind of game-breaking.

sniping peoples head off was fun. the AI sure is dumb at times but you also dont want to be seen by them either. so being stealthy does pay off.
the best thing is that you dont have this stupid regenerating health. you can carry only 5 syringes with you. there are medkits throughout the levels but you will not find them at every corner.

bad things are the (as mentioned) AI. there were moment that i shot a guy near a otehr enemy soldier and they havent even noticed it. and if they do, they just stand around trying to spot you instead seeking cover. some do but not frequently. some missions they raise the alarm, that mostly leads to mission failure.
and the story. kill bad guy before he can get hold of some mass destruction weapons...blah, blah, blah.

never the less it was a fun game. certainly not for everyone if they expect a fast pasted shooter. because its not. but for 8$, and i got the gold edition that cost the same price, that includes a SP DLC, it add over an additional hour of playtime.

El juego graficamente es impactante en muchas de las misiones que se superan a lo largo del juego, el juego de armas y fisicas de estas mismas son buenas aunque podrian mejorarse. El gran punto en contra y por el cual encuentro este juego tan generalmente regular es su Inteligencia Artificial o "IA" en todos los oponentes que se encuentran a lo largo del juego.

Mientras escribo este reporte ya he completado más de una hora de juego y sinceramente el juego aburre y se torna tonto, el juego se supone es la lucha de un "Sniper" contra todo un ejercito, sin embargo el factor sorpresa pasa a segundo plano cuando sin razon aparente todos los misianos estan disparandote. Espero que la experiencia de juego Multiplayer sea mucho mejor y asi poder sacarle el jugo a un juego que cuesta $15US.

Glichy, bad storyline, AI that can detect supperssors and see you from a mile away, and difficult as all hell. The only cool thing about this game is the sniper system that only works about half the time.

A game that combines Call of Duty with Sniper Elite, and very well done.
Interesting storyline, challenging opponents, and great gameplay.
