Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is by no means a great game, though its value is raised by short and varied missions, fun action elements, and an ability to make me feel like a legit action hero. Regardless of how much it borrows from other games, I can't deny that I had a good time blowing through missions and enemy troops. However, the poor graphics and technical issues like long loading times and crashes occasionally ruined the fun. And, minus any sort of multiplayer, there's not a lot of reason to go back.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a great sniping game let down by a mediocre open world, poor voice acting, technical hitches and terrible writing.

The open world environment and role-playing elements are trying to elevate the game above its rickety predecessors, but on both a technical and design level this sequel is way off target.

A newfound focus on player choice pushes CI Games' series in a positive direction, but myriad issues keep it from being a top marksman.

The view from a sniper's scope has the potential to tell a compelling and meditative story about the nature of armed conflict without the boom and bravado of video game warfare. It can also magnify issues and expose glaring flaws. In the case of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, the later is true. It's a sloppy, uninspired game at its best. At its worst, it's -- to quote Jonathan North -- "one fucking long exercise in triage."

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 could have been a great war sandbox, in which you enjoy every step of your attacks: planning, studying your enemy and specially taking the shots. But it´s many technical failures spoil the experience.

The relatively unique Georgian setting and the brewing civil war are all but set aside for a by the numbers story of revenge and betrayal, while Jon isn't a very likeable protagonist. The various bugs and crashes also need to be addressed in future patches, as they can ruin the experience. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has the sniping down to a tee, which should be expected with the number of years CI has been working on the series, but the surrounding package could be better.

I have to admit that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has some standout moments, particularly during the main campaign. Had CI Games focused on these moments instead of presenting a dull and empty open world to traverse around (rather quickly), they might have been able to deliver a stellar sniping game. During its best moments, you can't deny the sense of overwhelming satisfaction you get when you successfully sneak around the map without getting caught, and the thrill of taking out your target after that. However, that's all the enjoyment you're going to get from a game that's breaking under the weight of its own ambition.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is not realistic like ARMA III, but if you're looking for a first-person shooter with a tactical soul and an open-world setting, you'll be satisfied.

A game that was trying to reach an AAA level, but fails on delivering it due its own faults: being too repetitive, having a dumb AI, not having any multiplayer option... It's fun for a while, but that's it.
