Sniper Ghost Warrior 2
Favorite Sniping Experience!
I played the first Sniper: Ghost Warrior and I thought it was pretty good, but this one is even better in my opinion. The graphics are pretty good, the maps are awesome, and the story is pretty intriguing. Although the game is very linear, there are some parts in the campaign where you do have total freedom to choose how you want to accomplish a mission. There are parts where your objective is to clear out a zone, but you have the ability to do that however you want whether it be picking off people while they're on guard, shooting a grenade or explosive tank, shooting a radio that causes a distraction, or just face them head on. There are a few glitches that I noticed but it's not too bad. The multiplayer is pretty fun. It is very realistic in my opinion because you actually have to find the snipers where they are hiding and not just look for red names running around the map. Overall, if you're into the concept of sniping and you enjoy planning out your shots and your strategy, you should enjoy this game.
I'm a big fan of games that require you to sneak around and sniping games. This is by far my favorite sniping game. I hated part one to this game and almost did not et this one but I am very happy i decided to give it a shot. I highly recremend it to anyone into this style of game
Huge Step Up
The graphics are amazing the whole game was a huge step up I guess they finally took there time on the game and seen working hard pays off. Everything's great the gameplay might not be as long as you want but with the stealthy in the game it could make it a bit longer.
If you're looking for a good state of the art sniper game will amzing visuals and a pretty good storyline then you MUST purchase this game!!
I liked the first Sniper Ghost Warrior even though it had some issues, so I thought I'd get this game hoping that it would be better. It wasn't. The graphics are below average. They used cryengine 3? Crysis 3 has beautiful graphics using the same engine. AI is appalling, once they spot you they sprint to your exact location, even if you move from that spot, and almost insta kill you. Shot registry is off sometimes, i.e. I shoot an enemy and I see the blood splatter, but they turn around as if nothing happened and immediately shoot at my position. While playing the game lags sometimes or the screen flickers. I also managed to somehow fall underneath the map while evading enemy fire. Weapon selection is poor, you can't customize your loadout. Each mission you start with a random sniper (silenced) and the same silenced pistol that you use throughout the game. There is no customization whatsoever. Multiplayer is just pathetic, there are no words to describe how bad it is. Overall I would definitely not recommend this game to anyone. If you want a sniping game get Sniper Elite V2, that is a much better game and has better bullet time than SGW2.
A good in-depth sniper experience
If you're looking for an in-depth sniper experience this game is for you. When I first played the game I opened the shooting range, just to test out the game mechanics. The range definitely is challenging on any level, but there aren't any control guides on the range, but it serves its function: make you a better shot. In campaign is where you learn the majority of the buttons (but that's standard for most games) The mission brief cutscenes are basic (but good) graphics with voice overs. The campaign is difficult on any level. Expect to die a few times on the first mission. When you're going to take a shot your reticle bobs around with your breathing and movement, but that's for realism. The game isn't a breeze through either. The one problem I have with the game is the targets you're supposed to shoot are sometimes hard to locate quickly, they have a specific marker over their heads but there aren't any arrows or indicators as to where they are if you aren't looking at them, only the call out from your spotter, but you could relate that to realism. This game is in no way a just point and shoot game. The stealth factor is the majority of it, which is harder to keep than you might think. If you raise the alarm, you're usually dead. The characters definitely have character to them. Your spotter does a great job of calling shots, as they should. It's certainly challenging, but I thoroughly enjoy it. However I think it would be for those whom are always hogging the sniper rifle in Halo and Call of Duty, and moderately persistent gamers.
I want a REFUND!!
First of all im so tired of games like this even being released. If I were the boss of the people who worked on this game I would fire everyone. I played about a hour offline. BLOWS!!.. The shots arent that great. You would think since it takes place in the 90's the it would a better game than Sniper Elite V2....NOT!!! Ok here is the review on the multiplayer.... Terrible!!! Terrible!!! Terrible!!! There is only team deathmatch. There is only 2 maps. There are no binoculars online. The whole match you are holding the left trigger for zoom and looking. The looking isnt the problem.. The holding the trigger the whole time is... Freaking Ridiculous!! The shots arent that great, When you finally find someone to shoot.. Ok the movement of your sniper is so slow. I mean really, you are standing and walking ,,,, to slow.. Its like the turtle, rabbit and the sniper in the race.. well, the turtle passed the finish line when the sniper took first step.. If you want a sniper game that is fun and has lasting appeal pick up Sniper Elite V2... I want a refund!! They should pay us to play this garbage...
I was a fan of the first Sniper: Ghost Warrior, but did notice a lot of the glitches with the A.I., and some things that didn't work in certain circumstances that I'd expect in a stealth shooter. the sequel has exceeded my expectations both in graphics using cryengine 3, and my expectations with the stealth part of the engine. The first level I would have to say was the most boring because they re-teach you the controls and the stealth mechanics, but once you get to the second level you won't want to stop.
it getting push back alot first it was released Aug 12, 2012, then released Jan 13, 2013 now its March 12, 2013 whats going on here?
Probably Gonna Get It!
I've never played the 1st Ghost Warrior game, though I'm probably gonna get it today,but I probably am gonna get this one cuz they both look good and remind me of the game Sniper Elite: V2 (which BTW was a really good game!).
