Requires Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 (base game) to use this DLC
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Siberian Strike is set in an isolated Siberian location and will offer a more open world experience for solving missions. Players will not be guided and the only way to find their way through the new location is by using the map.
In the remote abandoned Siberian city of Birsovik, the Russian government established a top secret military installation focused on arms R&D. American intelligence gets word that the facility shifted its focus recently to weapons of mass destruction. A CIA operative, M. Diaz is sent in undercover, posing as lab personnel, to uncover the truth. When he stops sending in reports, a search mission is quickly put together.
The player steps in the shoes of Cole “Sandman” Anderson, a veteran special ops sniper, now in the ranks of Task 121 – a group put together to counter any WMD-hungry warlord’s whim in the Asia – Pacific region. Anderson is ordered to locate Diaz’s GPS signal and assess the situation on the ground, then extract any intelligence he may have found.

This game is actually surprisingly good after the first. Please ignore GhostsofWar he is obviously a SEV2 fanboy.
Pros-- -Great Visuals (CryEngine 3 baby) -Fixed AI (Ignore GhostsofWar he must just really suck... They are smarter with their attacks, they dont see you after you shoot from 500m away with a silenced rifle, They dont detect you when you are hiding pretty close with a ghillie suit, they dont have aimbots, etc.) -Plays a lot smoother than 1st/less clunky gameplay -Smooth and clean menu -Way more sniping knowledge needed. aka less hand holding
Cons-- -Minor bugs, but it is only 10 hours from launch at time of writing. Patches will come. -Multiplayer is very fun, but that is the most bugged. Very rarely connects to lobbies, 1 game mode, 2 maps. But when you do get in -and that's what I'm judging on- its awesome. And like I said before 10 hours in... Patches will come...

Definitely a worthwhile add-on if you enjoyed Sniper Ghost Warrior 2. Very different environment from the main game. The falling snow seems a little too real! Not really as "open-world" as the description makes it out to be, but not entirely scripted either.
