Conclusion: the conclusion that it is average. 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. It would be like having a platform game and just focused on jumping. Nothing else but the jumping.
Conclusion: Dead Money had a lot to live up to; some of the Fallout 3 DLC were outstanding. Dead Money falls flat on its face trying to live up to their reputation; it attempts to be too much. While the story and dialogue are very in-depth and interesting, the gameplay leaves much to be desired.
Conclusion: Of course the budget isn’t an issue for whoever picks this up, and it’s disappointing to see that Sniper: Ghost Warrior is indeed a full-price release.

Excerpt: Until a week ago I could safely say that I’d never been shot at and killed in an FPS by an enemy that was clearly facing in the wrong direction and standing on the other side of the map. That was until I played through Sniper: Ghost Warrior, and now I’m a veteran of the ridiculous.
Excerpt: Sniper: Ghost Warrior Review Publisher: City Interactive Platform: PC , Xbox 360 UK Price (as reviewed): £17.99 (incl. VAT) US Price (as reviewed): $39.99 (excl. Tax) The sniping is good; you’ve got to give it that.

It's awfully gratifying to line up a perfect kill and be rewarded with a bullet-time slow-mo sequence that shows what happened to the bad...
Pros: Challenging sniping mechanics, Some satisfying moments, especially when watching the bullet cam, Attractive tropical visuals and atmospheric sound effects, Multiplayer holds some promise, once you get over the learning curve.
Cons: Sniping mechanics are overly twitchy, Absurd difficulty in spots, Poor stealth mechanics, Spotty enemy AI that ranges from mindless to so magical it can spot you instantly.
Excerpt: You know what? Screw it. I like loading out as a sniper when playing first person shooter games like Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 . Gamer bravado and core pride pushed aside, I find playing as a sniper to be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in modern gaming.
