This is much more of a stealth game than its FPS brethren, which is neat, save for the fact that the game has already had a couple of egregiously spaced-out checkpoints. Last night I lost about 10 minutes of progress several times over, passing one outpost and dying at the next, only to restart before the first. With a game this unforgiving, the lack of a quick save option is annoying.The sniping is fun, as far as it goes, as long as you don't move too far outside of the prescribed way of doing things. In the first few scenarios, I covered a group of my special forces bros as they moved through a series of buildings. They'd call out targets, and I'd take them down. It was fun, if very linear so far the game has mostly felt like a shooting gallery, albeit an enjoyable one.When you're not escorting a group of teammates from on high, the sniping challenges get more interesting you're alone, and have to take out an outpost of dudes without any of them seeing the others go down. That means you'll have to think about the enemies' line-of-sight, and pick off dudes in the right order. The AI is hardly realistic whether or not they were immediately visible, I'd think a guy would notice if his entire team suddenly became dead. If you alert an enemy to your presence, his friends will also go on alert, but they'll mostly just sit still behind cover and wait for you to kill them. Occasionally, they'll rush your position, but mostly they'll just sit still. That said, the general setup of these scenarios is pretty fun, and lends a puzzle-like quality to the challenges.
Sniping at it's bestFreako | Feb. 7, 2014 | See all Freako's reviews »
I love the atmosphere and environment in this game. How the bullets travel from your barrel to your opponent's skull is great. You honestly won't get tired of it after seeing it again and again.
What's even more fun is when you play with your friends in co-op where you can teamwork together and plan strategic positions to get a better view on when and how to approach the enemy.
Definitely recommending this game for friends who likes sniping in FPS.

I want to like this game, it is trying to do something that I enjoy in some FPS games, making me thing about what to do next before doing it. A lot of FPS games lately have become about personal skill with regards to aim and movement abilities but Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 expects more from you, you need to play your next move, adjust for the various factors and then risk it and take action.
The game does that well apart from holding your hand a bit too much for my taste. The problem for me comes in that everything seems to be scripted, the A.I. seems mostly scripted and it takes away from the game's immersion.
They've improved on the first game greatly though by removing the frustrating run and gun missions and making it more true to it's name.
The game is built on the Cry Engine so the graphics are great and the environments you get to sneak around are done very well. Audio is what is to be expected from any modern title, nothing special but not lacking at all.
Fundamentally the game can do with less hand holding and pointing you to exactly what you need to do. Less linear environments and more choice in how to complete your mission with A.I. that can compensate for any changes.
If you enjoyed the first one you'll definitely love this one. Don't judge this sequel based on it's predecessor, it's a great improvement.

Well i liked it better than the first game.The first game was buggy and just a disaster well at least for me.This game's levels are very well done thanks to the CryEngine 3.I didn't find the story interesting so i kept playing for gameplay which i really enjoyed.It does get repetitive at some points but it's an alright of a game.Considering it's 75 % off you can try it out, it's not bad.

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.
