Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
Top Critic Average
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has undergone an evolution over its predecessors. Ballistics has been an unmistakable topic in this review, just because it gives you so much satisfaction, especially if faced with the toughest difficulty, will remain a feature of Sniper Ghost Warrior.

Sniper Ghost Warrior: 3 is an ambitious game, with a few flaws that still makes for a fun experience.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, in broad terms, seems to be a stripped down Far Cry 4 with more focus put into bullet ballistics. While the elements of a decent title are buried in here, there is a noticeable rough edge around everything that throws off the feel of the game. Some parts, such as the slow-mo sniper camera, seem like a cheap imitation of better titles. The lack of interesting side quests made me question if a switch to open world gameplay was the right choice. Perhaps providing a focus on smaller, well-designed maps instead of three large ones would have better fit the action-stealth genre. While the game is relatively bug free and the controls are decent, there is not much motivation to complete it due to repetitive missions and uncompelling plot. CI Games has a long track record of rather mediocre games and unfortunately this entry does not break the mold.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is an entertaining open world first person shooter marred by poor voice acting and a myriad of technical issues. CI Games’ latest release shows a lot of promise but it needs work before I can give it a glowing recommendation.
I do feel that the series is going in the right direction and if there is ever a Sniper Ghost Warrior 4 it could be a worthy opponent for its long-time rival Sniper Elite.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is not a bad game, but it does feel like a big budget, B-tier game that has unfortunately been released a bit too early. With an ambitious open-world combined with rewarding sniping, it’s easy to pick up and play. But for those seeking a deeper, more refined experience you may need to look further afield as Sniper Ghost Warrior 3's lackluster combat and bland world often leave you wanting something just a little bit more.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 kann trotz einer robusten Sniper-Mechanik und eines interessanten Drohnen-Features aufgrund von technischen Mängeln nicht überzeugen.

Whilst loading times are a right pain, The core mechanics of the game are solid and fun
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is the next installment in the Ghost Warrior franchise. It offers a host of new features and a vast sandbox to explore. With a story that offers some great twists and turns Sniper Ghost Warrior is engaging and will keep you interested in playing. With the new additions the game still isn't as triple A as it wants to be, there is some serious lack of polish in some areas.
Overall, SGW3 is a blast to play. With all the main and side missions included it offers plenty of gameplay to not get bored. The open world environment lets you go just about anywhere you want and complete everything at your own pace and the order you prefer. Aside from the long load time it is well worth the wait as once loaded there is not really any more waiting as you dive straight into the action. This game is fun, easy to play, and with a solid story behind it. I would recommend this to any open world game fan that enjoys sniping or even going in full blown rush with guns blazing.
