Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a mediocre shooter, elevated only by its smooth shooting controls and let down by its lackluster gameplay, boring open world, terrible writing, frequent crashes, bugs and performance issues. If you're a tactical shooter junkie like me there's some substance here, but there's better, more stable products out there that will respect your time a helluva lot more.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a glitchy, unpolished, currently uncompletable game (due to bugs). It succeeds in delivering a believable sniping experience but fails on all other fronts.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior was not praised, but to appreciate the game you need to understand where it came from. It came in straight line from on-rails shooters and came a long way in terms of technology and quality. It's a great open-world game, the only one that allows us to experience both stunning visuals and sniping mechanics at the same time. You may wait a bit for a game to load, but it will not disappoint afterwards.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 isn't exactly the best game on the market. Although CI Games promised to enter the AAA space, at the end they didn't succeed. It's not a bad title, but the disastrous technical state is irritating.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has several issues, and because of this, it's hard to recommend anyone to actually go out and play through the game. If you enjoyed the first two games in the franchise, there's a good chance you'll find enjoyment out of this title as well. But for those that are just looking for another first-person shooter to hold them over until the fall, I'd strongly suggest waiting the extra couple months.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a long way from being the best game in its genre. The shooting is satisfying, but that’s really about it. Almost everything else in the game, from the story to the AI to the loading times, leaves a lot to be desired.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a surprising effort from CI Games. If there’s anything to take away, it’s a damn good time. The solid mechanics, the world, and crafting abilities really show the experience of CI Games, marking a pinnacle in the series. However, technical mishaps hold this game back from being truly great. Long loading times and occasional cheese dialogue keep in a realm just below AAA status.
Overall Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a slightly below average shooter. It does have tight controls, some solid RPG elements in the form of load outs, weapon unlocks, etc and gunplay does feel satisfying. Sadly, however, the title never realizes its full potential and we are left with some mediocre systems and ideas that are never fleshed out. If you like a ‘slow, thinking person’s shooter’ that rewards patience and planning, it might be worth your time, but understand that you’re in for a lather, rinse, repeat type of game that ultimately uses systems and ideas that have been better developed and implemented in other titles.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was mediocre at best, though I will say it has a sort of charm about it that makes you want to come back if you're a fan of shooters.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a decent title which succeeds in what CI Games were aiming to do for the franchise. While it doesn't feel like a AAA title, with a long range of technical problems, the game is still above average, offering an decent adventure in an original Georgian setting, with lot of elements inspired by other large-scale open world shooter games. At least with this episode, CI Games has a decent formula that will probably get enhanced in its fourth sequel.
