A flawed, yet enjoyable game

mikeper94 | June 2, 2013 | Review of Sniper: Ghost Warrior PRE

If you're considering buying this game and it's going for less than a fiver, I would say to go for it. I bought this game for less than £2 and at that price a purchase is in the impulse territory.

The game's graphics are fine for something of this price range, the scenery looks quite pretty but there are countless graphical glitches, some slightly dumb UI and invisible walls which always bug me. The sniping mechanic is enjoyable and while the story is pretty awful, you still feel a sense of reward for completing each mission.

Most missions can be played tactically and stealthily or Call of Duty run and gun style giving you slight replay value I suppose, although I doubt whether I will ever play through this game again. Some of the stealth missions are quite frustrating but again, some may find the level of patience needed a good thing. All in all, if you're considering getting this game, it's pretty much a no brainer if it's at a sub £5 price tag.

Fantastic

One of the best games I've played in a long time. The story is long enough to keep you entertained for a good while and there are plenty of side missions to extend the game time further. The fighting mechanic is challenging to get used to, but once you've mastered it, its by far the most rewarding I think I've seen in any game. The car physics are slightly arcade-like, but very enjoyable nonetheless and the environment is sprawling and immersive. Would definitely recommend, although the Nightmare in North Point DLC isn't quite as good value as this original game.
