Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review | D+PAD

D+PAD writes:

The sniper level in Call of Duty Modern Warfare was considered one of the game’s highest points; its combination of stealth with setpieces – despite being a highly curated experience – created a tense kind of mission in a game that was rapidly redefining what a cinematic FPS could do in its use of curated setpieces. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 (or Sniper 2 for short) is a game formed entirely of these moments – mixtures of tense marksmanship and frantic action in the aftermath. It is a game which, rather than offering vast selections of experiences in a kind of action buffet, focuses on simulating a single one – sniping – as seemingly realistic as possible. Finding the midpoint between simulation and accessibility in a game like this is crucial, and Sniper 2 succeeds only in part. (PC, PS3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, Xbox 360) 3/5
