Sniper: Ghost Warrior looks good, the sniping's great as you'd expect from a game based around the deadly art, and watching a bullet slowly gliding towards a target is always enjoyable. Unfortunately it does have a few flaws here and there, like the extremely linear levels, and if you want to know more you should take a look at Jon's review. GamersGate are parting with downloadable copies of the game for £2.99, which'll make you a saving of about £10 on the next best offer out there. Thanks to djmetsandy @ HUKD.
Once upon a time, City Interactive actually managed to create a decent sniping simulator with great windage mechanics and solid gameplay... and then merrily pissed most of its potential down the drain with awful insta-fail stealth segments and some of the worst regular FPS sections in history. Still, when it works, it works fairly well.
Shooter fans will love the sniping, but a selection of truly terrible traditional FPS sections require a saint-like degree of patience.
When you're lying out of sight, covered in a ghillie suit, carefully waiting for the perfect shot to dispatch your target, Sniper: Ghost Warrior can be pretty good fun, especially when you're watching one of your bullets gliding towards its target in spectacular slow motion. Unfortunately, the game's a bit linear and any section of the game that doesn't involve sniping is a bit dull. At £9.85 though it's definitely worth a go, especially when you're saving £2 on the next best offer coming in from The Hut.
As you'd expect from the title, the sniping sections of Sniper: Ghost Warrior are pretty good fun, especially when you're watching a bullet cut through the air as it seeks out its target, all in glorious slow motion! Unfortunately, the rest of the game's a bit of a let down in comparison and you won't be doing much exploring because this one's incredibly linear. HMV are selling 360 copies of the game for £11.99, which'll make you a saving of just over £5.50 on the next best offer coming in from Cool Shop UK.
