Precision, stealth, and timing are essential traits in a sniper, one mistake can mean life or death, failure or succession, you just can't miss your mark first time round, and this game does by not creating a very engaging game.
In Ghost Warrior 2, you take on the role of mercenary sniper who is working with the CIA to stop a biological weapons dealer. There's twists and turns, flashbacks and a really contrived plot line that really doesn't connect you to your character at all. The campaign is a good excuse to shoot the bad guys in the head for a while but there's over acting and really, really awful dialogue and so simply shooting, the game isn't that well written. Things tend to appear blurry once up close and on top of that, enemies and characters look bland and have robotic animations, so they just don't look real enough.
There's no real stealth needed to this game, as the path is so set out for you and so linear that there is no real option there for you to figure out your own spot of advantage or to work out how to get to where you want to without being spotted, and so this takes a lot of fun out of the game. The only good thing about this game is the effects your surroundings have upon your aim and shot, such as wind, angle, speed, your posture etc. but, that is the only good thing about the game. The multi player mode is incredibly disappointing with bare minimum of features, the hide-and-seek game is initially fun, but once you score a few kills on each of the maps, you've seen all that there is to see.
This game had great potential but just falls so so flat.
