Hey guys, so I purchased Sniper: Ghost Warrior for the PC the other day, I did try to get it for the Xbox 360, but there was none left, so I settled for the PC version. Good thing my 360 controller is USB, so i can use it instead of a mouse and keyboard. Anyway, since I have enjoyed it so much, I’ve decided to write a review about it for all of you.
Ok, so I read a review about it before I bought it, and heard some things about it from my mate who works at a local games store too, some of the things people were saying about the game were quite negative, things like; it has bad graphics, environmental glitches, bad gameplay, etc. But I’m here to tell you that these things are not as close to the truth as these people would have you believe.
Ok, to be honest, there really isn’t much of a storyline, but you all saw that coming, didn’t you? I mean, come on, it’s an army/marine/special-ops game, what do you expect? There is a slight story in here, I mean, you do know who you’re killing and why you’re killing them, but aside from that, you don’t really know who you are except that you’re one hell of a shot who has to take down targets for a government establishment.
The gameplay is very good, I don’t care what anyone else says about it. Some people say it’s boring when you’re transitioning between sniper spots, having to infiltrate enemy buildings/camps to get there, but I say no, most of the fun happens when you’re transitioning, having to sneak around can be fun if you know how. I personally like to use my sniper in super close quarters (just as I do in Call of Duty), by no-scoping them or laying down in grass and taking them out after they just walked past you.
Some people say the graphics are horrible, but they’re wrong, the graphics are actually quite good, the problem is; it takes a lot of processing power to run the game on it’s highest quality, there-for, slowing the game down and giving you lag. I personally have quite a high-end PC and still had to bring the quality down so it didn’t lag. Other than that, the graphics are amazing, even on the “balanced” quality setting.
This game has a few cool gadgets and tricks you can do when you’re playing, for example:
I would recommend any avid snipers to buy this game, it is definitely the game for you. I personally use my sniper on Call of Duty: MW2 online all the time, in every situation, that is why I love this game, so if you’re like me, get it, get it right now.
Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed my little review and I hope I helped you make your decision. If you’ve played this game and have anything further to add to what I have wrote, put it in the comments and start a friendly discussion.
Also, if you’d like to have a few games with me sometime, I have a Steam Gamertag (which is for the PC) which is MentalGamefreak (Yep, just like my Xbox Live Gamertag). So add me if you want.
