One thing is certain: Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is certainly more enjoyable than its predecessor. But is it that much better if you look closer ? No, but there are a few things that have been improved. First of all, the game now runs on the CryEngine 3. It's definitely visible as the game looks more vibrant and detailed, but faces are still a bit low poly. And the environments, while they look frequently beautiful, are still not open. The game lets you walk in only one direction, so, like the first one, it's still linear. Not a big deal at all, but it would've been cooler if you had the chance to kill people from more than one location. Another improvement is that it's more stealthy. In the first one there were a few moments where you had to kill (waves of) enemies using regular weapons, which was a bit odd considering the fact that it's a sniper game and it's called Sniper Ghost Warrior. SGW2 fixes that problem. You still get to switch to your handgun, but there are no other weapons besides that one and your trusty sniper rifle. Firefights are more intense because of that. Now, intense might not be the right word for it, because they aren't really, but you get the feeling you're playing as a real sniper. And while kills aren't as satisfying as sniping someone in Sniper Elite V2 it still does a good job of mixing up the action with some slow motion bullet kills. Even if they're not that spectacular. The game consists of three acts, with several missions in each act. Missions will take somewhere between 10-30 minutes, and most of us will finish the game within 5,5 hours. It's not overly long and therefore stays enjoyable all the way through. If you're into sniper games, like me, SGW2 might be worth your time and money. It all depends on how much of a fan you are. Still, if I had to choose between this game and Sniper Elite V2, Sniper Elite would win without a doubt. That doesn't mean it's bad, but it does mean there's still room for improvement.
Not A Bad Sniper Gamessjason | March 13, 2013 | See all ssjason's reviews »
This game is leaps and bounds above its predecessor. Not only is it built on Cry Engine 3 for beautiful graphics, but the story feels well rounded now. Although, it does feel a bit clunky at times controls are decent. By clunky I mean your AI spotter will do animations a few times before he actually jumps down from something or while he is sprinting he zig-zags all over the place. For the price it's not a bad game. If you are expecting something better than Sniper Elite V2 though, this game isn't for you.
Interesting sequal to the first Sniper: Ghost WarriorBigshrimp | March 12, 2013 | See all Bigshrimp's reviews »
I think it is a somewhat decent sequel. It has a significant improvement on the graphics, sound, and AI. The graphics engine is based on the CryEngine 3 from Crytek.
It seems after playing it for a few hours that you can see that they tried to listen to the fans of the first one. I think they did a good job with the menus this time as well as the sniper experience. It really gives you a better experience all around, even if it is linear throughout the game.
The multiplayer is a little buggy right now, but I am hopeful they will squash them bugs soon, I will give them some slack since the game was just released.
The only other issue that can be a sore subject is the game length, it is only 5 hours or so. So after you finish it, you will be wanting a more bug free experience in multiplayer. Still not a bad game if you compare it the first.
