Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
Top Critic Average
Despite still being mired with an unhealthy assortment of technical hiccups and a paper thin narrative that feels like a rejected Call of Duty plot line, there is still fun to be mined out of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 but it's entirely dependent on an individual's tolerance of the occasional glitch.
Developer CI Games attempted to fix many issues of SGW3's predecessors in ways which ultimately confuse and distract the core experience of the game. A barren open world, glitches and long loading times, and needless hand-holding through forced playstyles ruin what fun is to be found in the well-executed core element of the game: sniping.
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.
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.
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.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a failed attempt to make a clone of Far Cry with a focus on sniper battles. The game was drowned in bugs, stupid plot, superfluous mechanics and boring gameplay.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a game that just wasn't ready to be released. I believe there is a near future when you're going to find this one in the bargain bin or on a deep discount in a digital sale, after the numerous bugs have been patched and that multiplayer is added in, and then there will be an opportunity to enjoy a solid experience. This is not a AAA FPS but it does deliver some good moments when it works, has very good gameplay mechanics working for it, finds that balance between open world and engaging set pieces, and is presented through an interesting environment. However, the single player plot remains atrocious, there is no multiplayer, and in it's current beta state it's just not yet worth it.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 should have been a better game. Disassembled, it had all the parts needed to give the thrill of the one-shot one-kill calibre that it deserves. The assembled game however, completely misses its target as it comes off as a mismanaged product that fails to deliver on its promises.
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.
