Sniper Ghost Warrior is set on the fictitious South American island of Isla Trueno, where a despotic military regime lead by the ruthless General Vasquez has overthrown its democratic government to seize control. As one of a group of covert commandos, the player is charged with infiltrating the rebel stronghold and overthrowing the unelected powerbase. Intelligence reports indicate that Vasquez is due to chair a meeting with his cohorts in an old refinery facility, and a government plant is in place to set up an assassination opportunity for the crack unit. But as the unit arrive on the island, it soon becomes clear that the plan has gone awry, and the team must adapt and use their combat skills if they are to complete the mission.
Realism is at the heart of Sniper Ghost Warrior, and the game enjoys a truly realistic ballistic system that accounts for the distance of a shot, fall-off of the bullet’s trajectory, and environmental factors, such as wind direction. Similarly, the lush jungle environments, allow the user to use the cover of the foliage to take out key targets, while other members of your squad can act as ‘spotters’ to detail the positions of key adversaries. Players must also manage the breathing of their sniper to provide a more accurate shot, while the game’s ‘Bullet Cam’ system offers stunning close-ups as the bullets thud into their unsuspecting targets.
The mission spans 16 stages, starting with the problematic assassination attempt at the refinery, and moving on to oilrigs, a mine, the coast, and a set of ruins as the game’s plot continually surprises. Each level is brought to vivid life with the many rustles of the jungle keeping the player in a constant state of alert, and the sniper elements mixed with incredible firefights, as the enemy break cover and the squad is forced to engage in open combat.
Sniper Ghost Warrior represents a clever take on the military simulation genre, and also allows users to hone their sniper skills in a series of unique multi-player modes, wherein up to 16 players can compete simultaneously.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior gets straight to the point from the first minute you play. You'll understand that you're about to play a serious, pure, sniper game. I won't say negative things about it, mostly, but yeah it does differences with Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. Let's just say it got better in some things, but it's still different games with different locations. The mechanics are absolutely great. Gotta give them that, City Interactive did a good job. The story is really interesting, but unfortunately it IS short (though a little bit longer than it's sequel). The A.I is not 'stupid', and they act kind of smart. The weaponry is not big, but satisfying. The graphics are stunning at max settings. Some pros: Mechanics, pure sniper game experience, graphics, story, multiplayer (which is really good by the way!) Cons? Hmm, let's see: length, length, length. Really, that's all I could think of. Or, I like it a lot, haha. And it's not like the game is only 3 hours, don't get me wrong, it's just that it's not even at least 9-10 hours. Opinions vary though. Other people might say more stuff for the cons. Nevertheless, really enjoyable and surely gets replayability. City Interactive has lowered it's price even more nowadays, so, if there's anyone that wants to try a good & cheap sniper game, go for it.
Glitchy, and a dead multiplayer, but not an excuse to not play the game because the single player mode sends you to a jungle where you'll be sniping enemies out of nowhere. the stealth elements are there and correctly put in there, except the AI being a bit bugged somehow in short words : you better pick this up when it becomes waaaaay more cheaper , by -80% or so
Sniper: Ghost Warrior is a tactical shooter video game developed and published by City Interactive for PC, Xbox and PS3. It was first release in 2010 and received mixed to bad reviews. And it yeah, you can't compare it to call of duty or even Sniper Elite, but I like the environments(quite tropical, a Crysis vibe), and some of the missions, it was never a painful experience. I'd say it's the perfect game if you are bored and have nothing else to play. The bullet-time when you headshot an enemy with the sniper it's still satisfying. The story is forgettable, the characters are boring and have nothing interesting to say, however I will always remember the cutscene in which the protagonist(which you control) has to use a laptop and his fingers dance on and in the keyboard, it's a so bad it's good moment I always picture when I think of this game. Also I'd like to add that the other guns, besides the snipers are poorly designed. In the end, I recommend this game simply for it's price/value you get from it. It's not great but it's worth a try.
The game features fairly decent sniping mechanics. It takes into account distance, bullet drop, momentum and wind which makes shooting a bit more engaging that just pointing the reticle at the enemy and firing.The story is not THAT bad (its not good though) I have found myself enjoying every moment of the game. It is campy, it is buggy and never rises above mediocre but it was just fun; Sneaking around sniping people, seeing your plan of attack succeed or even just hitting a guy while he is running were all very fulfilling. I recommend the game to people that can overlook some of its flaws and focus on the good that is in there (however little that is).
I had fun playing this, being a sniper in South America and sniping enemies; it was entertaining for a couple of hours (albeit in a generic FPS video game) The game world can look pretty impressive with lots of green around, however the game can be rather buggy with glitchy AI.
