Sniper missions always seem wedged into games, never truly reaching their potential. Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is the first sniper game that I've truly felt like a 'watch dog', covering my team as they move from position to postion and dropping targets like a bad ass. Unfortunately, the plot then gets in the way and turns a great sniper game into just a game with snipers in it. The first two levels are awesome but the quality then drops away. The sniping IS great, but non sniping enthusiasts will find little to enjoy. However if, like me, you always play as a sniper, then Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is a must play, even if it's not the clean kill it should have been.

I've waited for Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 so much. I really appreciated the previous one even if it had some little setbacks. Now, most of them have been fixed and it is a better game.
The main downside now is that the single player campaign is too short, as it is often the case in the shooters. At normal difficulty, it takes around 7 hours to complete if you do not look too much for the hidden objects. If you decide to find them, you can increase the length by few hours, but it adds nothing to your experience.
The other downside, that is also common with the shooters, is that there is absolutely nobody online. There were 2 servers when I connected, one being locked by a password and the other one was empty. So, if you buy it, be advised that you will have a single player only game unless you plan on playing with your friends.
There are not only cons, there are also a lot of pros about this game. First, the graphics. They simply look great. The game has been built with the Cry Engine 3. City Interactive is not recognized for great looking games, but this one is a great one.
The sound is also incredible. When you are hidden in the leaves, you hear the bees or flies and you really feel like they were just beside you. However, I had to use my headphones because with my speakers, the voice of my spotter was often too low so I did not hear him calling the shots.
The gameplay is perfect and shooting someone from over 300' is so satisfying. The enemies do not hear you from that distance as in the previous game. This has been fixed and this is good.
I cannot do something else than recommending this game. It is so much fun, and that is the primary goal of a video game in my opinion. So go and buy it!
Better than the first game.bc10000 | Aug. 2, 2013 | See all bc10000's reviews »
So i decided to try out Sniper Ghost Warrior 2, after playing the first game of the series. I have to admit, they improved upon so many things in this sequel. Everything from visuals to game-play feels a lot better, and the story is a lot more interesting. I dont know why this game has bad reviews on Metacrit, but i assure you it's worth your money.

This release is a huge improvement over the original game. The first thing you will notice is the the improvement in the graphics. Cry Engine is pretty, and City Interactive did a decent job creating some pretty backdrops for the sniping. The cut scenes are a bit weak, with poor character animations - forgivable, but a little more work could have been done.
Speaking of sniping, that is exactly what you will be doing 99% of the time....and that's a very good thing. The run-and-gun nonsense of the first game is virtually non-existent in this release. The progression is linear, with a lot of hand holding regarding who and when to kill, but it still remains fun. I had a blast sneaking around the games environments. Its a nice break from the non-stop frantic action games out there.
The story is average, so surprise there. However, the pacing is good - mixing the right amount of sniping stealth and action. The only fault here is the game length. Its definitely a bit on the short side, but for a budget game, this isn't as much of an issue.
I haven't played multiplayer, but from the videos I've seen it appears serviceable. Pure sniping multiplayer has never appealed to me. Too much camping and one dimensional - just my opinion.
Definitely give this game a try, even if you were turned off by the first one.

A good game that whacks you into the middle of enemy areas and then says 'deal with it' making you choose how you wish to proceed. It's very satisfying to get a kill from miles away but in all honesty it's still just a modern shooter.
