Summary: Sneaking and sniping is a gameplay formula that many gamers are familiar with. Sniping missions are often included as brief breaks from more intense run and gun gameplay. Sniper: Ghost Warrior takes the exact opposite route.
Excerpt: It’s been years since Golog 13: Top Secret Episode introduced sniper rifles into first person shooters (FPS) and through the ages they have been dealt with in a variety of different ways. From stealth based affairs like Project I.G.I.
Summary: The bottom line here is that while Sniper tries some new things, what they try fall just short of being where they should be. The gameplay is nothing spectacular, and the invisible walls. Oh my god the invisible walls!
Conclusion: Graphics may not be the best, but the shooting was significantly better. As a final aside, for all of those who want the technical aspects, this game also encourages the idea that you shoot for the head. You try hitting a watermelon size target at 300+ metres, difficult.
Summary: Sniper: Ghost Warrior is an attempt to shake up the FPS genre by focusing solely on those who like to creep behind bushes. That should freak you out enough but hold on to your Amber Alert caps because they didn’t come out of the bushes yet. Because they’re stuck in them.
Summary: If you take the stealth mechanic away, the game is okay. It doesn't do anything that any other shooter hasn't already done. The only thing it had going for it was stealth, which it doesn't have. Play it like a CoD game and it's not bad as far as shooters go.
Pros: The sniping works with some very unique mechanics to it.
Cons: The A.I., stealth mechanics are not good, multiplayer is pretty awful, story makes no sense.
Summary: Snipers are some of the deadliest and most frustrating soldiers to deal with in shooters, so it's very appealing to be the one behind the scope in Sniper: Ghost Warrior. The trouble is that a lot of design miscues by developer City Interactive make it almost as aggravating to play a sniper here as...
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: Absurd difficulty in spots, Poor stealth mechanics, Spotty enemy AI that ranges from mindless to so brilliant it can spot you instantly
Excerpt: Videogames are practically tailor-made for providing that particular power rush that comes from raining down death and destruction from a position of perfect safety. It’s no wonder, then, that sniping is one of the great pleasures of the first-person shooter: Delivering a well-placed hollow-point...
Summary: While Sniper may look like yet another clone of Modern Warfare, it actually distinguishes itself, most of the time, by employing stealth action gameplay coupled with long distance shooting. Sadly, it also distinguishes itself by having serious glitches, wildly uneven enemy A.I.
