Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review | Gaming Trend

Gaming Trend: "Being a Combat Controller, a Ranger, a Seal, or any other Tier 1 operator means carefully stalking, selecting, and prosecuting your target and then quietly slipping away. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 attempts to tackle the heart of that experience and wrap a game around it. Seeing the slow-motion shots land on their targets is kinda cool, and the Crytek 3 engine does make the presentation beautiful. The multiplayer experience has died on launch with a maximum of only 8 people total playing on Steam, (and all but 2 of them in private locked games) but given that Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch are the only options, it comes as no surprise. The title retails on Steam for $29.99, and for a 4 hour single player experience that’s $7.50 per hour. While some aspects of the game are worthwhile on higher difficulty settings, the hand holding on Casual and Medium is excessive. All in all I’m not disappointed with the title but it will sit on the shelf next to a lot of others that came close, but didn’t quite pull it together to make it something great." (PC, PS3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, Xbox 360) 64/100
