Sniper: Ghost Warrior

The sniper: a sharpshooter, master of stealth, and physics genius all wrapped in one. It’s no surprise gamers love playing this elite role. I’ll be honest, Sniper: Ghost Warrior won’t be winning any major awards: the storyline is “meh,” the gameplay feels unpolished, and the graphics are Wii quality at best. However, the unique features of this game made it so fun that I couldn’t put the controller down. First, targets are well camouflaged and can hear/see nearly everything – you need to be extremely meticulous if you want to go undetected. Second, for the first time I’ve seen in a game, you have to adjust for projectile physics (no anti-gravity bullets here). And finally, my personal favorite, headshots are rewarded with a slow-mo cutaway following the bullet, giving you a great view of the carnage and a sneak peek at the target’s surroundings. Ghost Warrior isn’t perfect, but for those of us who take joy in killing enemies while they stand oblivious to the danger, it’s worth a try.

    "Second, for the first time I’ve seen in a game, you have to adjust for projectile physics (no anti-gravity bullets here)."
    Did you play Sniper Elite for PS2/XBox? I thought you had to adjust for distance/wind in that game as well, but I could be wrong.
    Good review overall. After the first few lines, I was ready to pass on this game, but knowing you gave it a 1-up, I had to keep reading to see why. Sounds like a fun rental, or perhaps a cheap pick up. Thanks

    I haven't played either of those; this is the first sniper-only game I've tried. I've played a few games with sniping available and all of them would hit exactly where the crosshairs met.
