Synopsis


You take in a deep breath and slowly exhale. The only sound that registers in your brain is that of your heartbeat, seemingly in slow motion. Some corner of your mind is calculating wind speed, how far away your target is, drop ratios, bullet trajectory and all of the tiny elements that could ruin your shot, but in this moment you're operating on pure instinct and adrenaline. In the tiny space between heartbeats, you squeeze the trigger and see your target drop. The sound of the shot and the smell of gunpowder make time suddenly speed up, and you move on to the next target. Silent, stealthy and swift, you are the Ghost Warrior and you have accomplished your mission.

Slip on the ghillie suit of a lethal Special Ops assassin in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. Hone your skills in urban, jungle, and mountain environments that incorporate real-life factors of wind speed, distance, limited visibility and more into your experience. Not to worry, you have a spotter on hand to set up each shot and the luxury of night- and thermo-vision goggles so that no matter what the conditions, you'll be able to eliminate your target. Stunning visuals brought to life by the CryEngine3 technology immerse you in the mission, while the Bullet Cam mode ensures that you get to revel in your best shots. Sniping is an art and in Ghost Warrior 2 you get to be Michelangelo.

    This was the first time stepping into this game. Didn't try out the first Sniper game but always wanted to. So I ended up with this one. Coming from a COD background, this game would be of a less appealing game, but for me, who likes to try out different shooter type game (and even though i'm not great, i like the stealthy sniper type of feel). I would say though, without the guided red dot, this game would be very challenging. I just played it in normal and i did fairly well. Finished the game in a few days of just playing here and there. Overall, i would say, it definitely needs more to appeal to a more wide base fan but it definitely has its own edge.

    After purchasing "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" for the PS3, I've come to really like playing this game. Most people who enjoy first person shooters will find this game familiar in game play; however, as the namesake suggests, this game is focused on sniping so it doesn't play as fast paced as a "Halo" or "Call of Duty." This game is more methodical so don't expect a lot of wild shootouts. The environments are pretty well done, but can be a little dark at times; however, you do have night vision so that helps. All in all, if you're first person shooter strategy is geared more for sharp shooting, I think that you'll like this game.

    I love picking up the sniper rifle in call of duty and other war games so this one, being all about sniping for the most part, was a perfect match. There is actually a good number of levels I just want more. Looking forward to another sniper game. I'm unsure if they have a #3 but I will buy it when I come across it.

    Never tried the sniper type games but when I did was surprised with how you can snipe from very far away. The background sound effects are nice as well making it more real. Love that some of the guys your shooting at line up besides each other so you get a double kill.

    The action is good. Way too much to do between saves. The rocking up and down of the sights in zoom sucks. Who thought that was realistic? This is worse than the first one. The cussing adds zero except to other foul-mouthed gamers.

    Good first person shooter

    technical, fast moving first person shooter. Story line is a bit short and would be nice to be able to move more freely in the game area to gain max trajectory and stealth on target. fun to play, too easy to complete.
