Sniper:Ghost Warrior 1 is a great that the player need skill and also needs to have patience as some parts need precise timing and/or accuracy. Although in my opinion 2 is better but it is after 1 obviously so it should be better. Recommended Buyers: Players that liked the other Sniper games an/or players that might like a game that is all about sniping.

Challenging and fun to play. Everything that you want from a game. The gameplay however is a bit lackluster and may leave you wanting a little bit more from it. Still, if you like sniping in video games, this provides a unique twist on the regular formula of Call of Duty sniping.
This is far more precise.

Cool game, compelling single player that demands attention as well as skill. On the harder difficulties it can be quite a challenge, but it's still worth playing. Also the guns are cool and there are quite a few to choose from. The multiplayer is OK, not many people on now days but.

I am in the minority with this one, as I actually really enjoyed Sniper: Ghost Warrior. With multiple different way to approach each situation, and different methods to take down enemies, I had many hours of enjoyment running around the lush environments. Can not wait for the sequel which comes out early next year.
