Anyone who has fired a gun knows that the more powerful it is the more kickback it gives. A high-powered rifle, for example, recoils hard into your shoulder when fired. Shooter is just like that, unloading strong action-packed gameplay that unfortunately kicks back with an amplified difficulty curve and mediocre presentation.
Bob Lee Swagger takes the starring role in Shooter, his super sniping skills putting him one step ahead of a far-reaching government conspiracy. The game follows the plot of the movie, beginning with Swagger's early days in the special forces stationed in Ethiopia to his present predicament running from the same authorities he used to work with.
