Sniper Ghost Warrior GameStop Exclusive Limited Edition
Awesome Sniper Game
best sni[er game that i have ever played. camapign was really fun and was challenging. multiplayer was fun and it actually takes skill to spot another sniper that is hiding in the brush or behind or wall. This game will test your aiming. bullet drop and heart rate are 2 huge factors that need to be brought into consideration when shooting.
poor, poor, poor
Can someone please tell me why out of all the last fps games I have bought, why is there always a connection problem for the multiplayer portion of the game. And crashing my ps3 about 75% of the time trying to get on a server. But, this game was by far the worst to play online than any other. when black ops came out they had the same problem but fixed it within a month. Frustrating! I love the idea, I am a sniper about half the time in the call of duty and battlefield games, I was looking forward to a multiplayer sniper game. Oh well I will be trading it in today before it looses complete value.
AWESOME GAME!!! Some minor problems.
This game is terrific but it does have some minor problems. For example, when you are playing the campaign and you scope in the player breathes SO LOUDLY!!!!!!!!!!! WHY DID THEY HAVE TO MAKE IT WHERE HE HAS BREATHE SO LOUD!! DONT THEY REALIZE THAT IT ANNOYS THE PERSON WHO IS PLAYING, ESPECIALLY ME!!?? The amost annoying thing about the game is how you actually have a health bar!! That is probably the dumbest thing I've EVER seen in a shooting game. Why it cant it be like MW, or MW2 or Black ops where you get shot a few times and you can go behing cover and heal??!! THATS SOOO ANNOYING!!! Another thing wrong with this game is when the person walk up a ladder. I've never seen anything more DUMB. When he walks up the ladder he doesnt even use his hands!!! He walks up it like hes walking normally!! It should be like any other shooting game where you shouldnt see the person when he is walking up the ladder except the ladder itself. But instead he doesnt use his hands!!! Last but not least, the killing in multiplayer. When I played multiplayer and starting shooting someone I had to shoot them at least 5 times for them to die!!! And you know why??!! BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE A HEALTH BAR!!! I shot the guy once with sniper, knifed him once, and shot him TWICE with my Desert Eagle, and them AGAIN WITH MY SNIPER!!! HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT!!!!! Overall the gameplay is pretty awesome but these are the only things about this game that bother me.
patience is the first and most important SKILL !
i played the first one ps2 i like it this one is like a mordern warfare it could be better but really? who who nose about snipersss there ghost right?????
Failed Hope for improvement-pester DICE 2 make one
OK. So since Sniper Elite, by Rebellion came out on PS2 (which I might add I still own and would play over this) there has not been a great sniper specific game in years. This game HAD promise, but alas City Interactive FAILED to DELIVER. The review below this one was completely on the money. Except that since I wanted know how bad it was, I let the load screen on a multiplayer match go on the ends of 23-28 minutes in a loop before trying to back out and it restarted my PS3. Then you can take into consideration that I have not been able to access someone else's match since 3 hours into the first day I bought it. The only way I can be active on a match is by creating my own and then everyone that entered my room could not move around or interact in the match. And should I mention the fact that it did not release on the day it was supposed to? Even in the single player campaign if you interacted in the water and in some areas of the jungle the graphics would be de-res and fracture. This is not even taking into consideration the atrocious movement mechanics, tight linear focus of your movement options (where as a sniper, wouldn't you think you would have greater access to cover and position choice rather than just sitting in the middle of a road?) This game is by far one of the WORST deliveries I have seen to date and absolutely the WORST multiplayer I know of and have had experience with. I guess it wouldn't be that bad if you could actually connect, cause the concept and premise has promise. The single player campaign is limited and narrowly focused with trigger based spawns that make no sense. Not to mention the fact that the OPFOR can spot you in cover at 3-400 yards and are able to get head shots through cover. It is nice to have the physics of actual shooting, yet it was poorly brought about. In my experience with long distance shoot with high velocity rifles (curtesy of US Army school of infantry), I have experienced minimal trajectory degradation with those types of distances. Yet here in this game you have to make the type of adjustments for shots at 200 yrds that you should realistically be making for shots at 600+ yrds. Needless to say the overall realism of this game FAILS TO DELIVER. If you want an awesome sniper game like mechanics on a current console, stick with BFBC2 and DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. In fact if you haven't opened it, DO NOT, just RETURN IT. This was an abysmal failure in translating a game from PC/Xbox to PS3. I only hope that their second one, that is supposed to be using CryEngine 3 addresses some of these issues and a change in their staff addresses the rest. What we should do (as a community) is begin barraging DICE and EA with a request to develop their own line of sniper based games.
Adding things help but what about polish
The game was good all the way trough so my real scores a 7.5 and they did add more stuff to make have more entertainment but the game was only polished polished in graphics and sound but all the problems of the first game are still there. The game is way better then that piece of trash game on the xbox I gave a five but that dos not mean its a great game. I recommend this to fps fans or someone who who has been wanting a sniper game which would be kinda weird. I wanted to give this game a higher score and I do see a great fps here but until we get a squeal then we will never see the great Sniper Ghost Warrior people have been asking for.
False Advertisement - Awful Game
First of all, the game it's supposed to come in a 'BULLETPROOF METALLIC CASE' well guess what ? It comes in a regular ps3 case. 2nd. in the picture there are 3 artwork postcards, it only comes with 2. In the description it says that the graphics are gonna be 'BETTER' than the sniper ghost warrior version from xbox and pc, this is COMPLETELY FALSE....These graphics are the worst i've seen in my life ! the graphics look like a ps2 cod game ! also, the multiplayer mode and the game overall is completely ruined...when i first inserted the disc, my ps3 screen went completely black and the other times i played online it would load a match but it would say: PLEASE WAIT and after 15 long minutes of waiting it said: Server is no longer available and sometimes when i selected to go back to the main menu it woul get STUCKED saying: LOADING... and when i tried to quit game, my ps3 would restart.......for a completely redesigned game i expected more, so everyone who's thinking of this game::: DONT BUY IT, save your $40 - $50 and wait 'till modern warfare 3 - cause mw3 will rock this rip off game - i personally love sniping, but this game makes me love EC rated games (Early Childhood) ! Seriously DONT BUY IT
GS PS3 Limited Ed. is NOT as advertised...
The GameStop PS3 "Limied Edition" version of this game does NOT come with the listed "bullet proof steel" case! It also only includes TWO of the three post cards. The "dog tag" is VERY cheap and without the rubber silencer. And the kicker is that the "one shoot, one kill" DLC can NOT be used until July 18th, 2011. You have been told...
Exclusic edition ROCKS!!!!!!
People who say this game is not worth the money are WRONG!!! I saw the gameplay on YouTube and it looked awesome and thats why I bought it!! Its TOTALLY WORTH the money and the storyline is awesome!! I love going around sniping people in the head!! I recommend this game to people who just love shooter games basically. People who say this game is terrible are on drugs.
GameStop Limited Edition NOT AS ADVERTISED
Just got my copy of the PS3 version of Sniper: Ghost Warrior GameStop Limited Edition. It does NOT have the metal case as advertised, the whole thing comes in a flimsy cardboard box like old PC games. Also, the One Shot-One Kill DLC isn't even available until July 18, which is something you don't know until you open the box. The Sniper Stories book is tiny, flimsy, and worthless. The dog tags are cheap and feel like they're made out of a tin soda can, and do not have the rubber protectors.
If you're interested in getting this game for the PS3, save your money on the GameStop edition and stick with the standard version.
