Synopsis


Your hands steady as you lock onto your target, the scope trained on this unsuspecting man's temple. Your breathing slows as time seems to wait for the fatal moment when you squeeze the trigger. Your aim is sure, your resolve unwavering; the man crumples to the ground before you even hear the shot. You claim yet another clean kill without an ounce of remorse as you reload and scan for the next target. When these men overthrew the democratic government of Isla Trueno, they had no idea of the consequences. Their fate is sealed; but will your covert efforts be enough to overthrow a ruthless despot? Walk through the jungles of South America as the silent and invisible hand of death. By the time your enemies learn of your presence it's already too late — you are a Ghost Warrior.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior takes you on a thrilling journey as you influence the tide of government from the shadows. Your enemy won't see it coming as you work with a spotter, slow your breathing and calculate for the effects of weather and distance falloff. You have an arsenal of weapons at your disposal, but usually one bullet is all you need. Watch as you take your targets out with precision in Bullet Cam mode, or engage in real-time assault sections. The action never ends with plenty of different play opportunities including sniper vs. sniper, real-time tactical assault and fixed machine gun combat scenarios.

    If you ever done sniping in games like Modern Warfare 2 or Bad Company 2 get ready to start playing those two games again.The story is FPS by numbers theirs a fictional banana republic a dictator who must be killed,and soldiers who either don't know or care their working for him.Then theirs you with your rifle and high powered scope.The actual sniping of the game is pretty good.Unlike many shooters you have to take into account wind direction,and speed,gravities effect on the bullet,and even your own heartbeat,which will be higher if you've been running around.Sniper Ghost Warrior then torpedo's this intriguing system by adding in bullet time and slow mo aiming gimmick,which represents holding your breath and concentrating real hard,but it comes off too gamy.It's rewarding to get the perfect shot off and watch the result in bullet cam sequence,but that's about the limit of it.To make things worse sometimes your forced into run and gun sequences that clearly imitate Call Of Duty but aren't up to par.The game feels sparse overall,you can't cause distractions,shootout lights or do much of anything you expect to do in first person shooters.Enemies are either deaf or dumb or can spot you quickly hundreds of feet away.The multiplayer of the game is just sniper vs sniper which is not as fun as it seems.Even tho this game is $40 save it and buy a real FPS.

    finally ,im playing the game right now if u loved sniper elite and like sniping u gonna like this one.the game is not perfect,but u cant really expect a perfect polished game like (MWF1) from a small company with low budget.but i think its a great start.im playing it on medium difficulty and its not easy. remember,u have to stay very low and quiet,if u get spotted ,ur f....d! and u will get spotted very often,the AI is not 100%. bullet cam is awesome,i wish they would do more animation for the headshots,and couple other things. but if u are tired playing sniper elite and sniping in multiplayer games,this is the game u should get. satisfying sniper experience,for me. in how many games,u can take out a cow or a parrot from couple of hundred yards.?this game is for snipers ,not whiners !!!!

    Really bad and buggy game

    Avoid this game and save your money. This is a sub-par game, sniper slow-mo is nice (was used in Sniper Elite, a far better game). This game has so many bugs its a wonder how anyone could even give it a fair rating. Its a poor game, not well designed, bad story, confusing character changes, oh yea, and AI's with magic bullets that can go through anything. As for stealth? Please, they find you 90% of the time. I guess your character in this game was thrown out of sniper school. Please, for the love of GOD, save your money and sanity.

    Average, short review

    This game is as my title suggest Average, it does not have alot of the things that we come to expect from FPS like the ability to shoot out lights or objects to distract enemies, and i was not impressed with the story, and the graphics were very average, i would recommend the game to a friend because alot of ppl really enjoy snipeing and that portion of the game is quite fun, and in a way very creative, the game could have used a little more tweaking but its a solid buy for 20 bucks. lol.

    Just started playing it, but so far it has been excellent. I like that the scope doesn't dance like some sniper games. When you hold your breath, the target slows. I much prefer this effect to the dancing cross hairs that only line up with the target if timed correctly. Looking forward to completing the game.

    when I purchased Xbox 360 then I also bought this game and I fell in love with Xbox 360 because of this particular game. Awesome graphics and many glitches to perform. I love this game. It worth every penny I spent.

    Played it through once was fun but probably won't touch it again. Plus why is the pistol stronger and more accurate then the assault rifles at long distances?
