Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is a nice attempt to make a realistic sniper simulator, but the game clearly lacks a good story, as now the plotline can boast only scandalous. The missions themselves are crude and boring, the goals are not interesting, and the artificial intelligence even after the patch remains primitive and stupid. The number of bugs is only regrettable. Of the advantages is only a fun sniper shooting and nice graphics, which is clearly not enough for a modern game project.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is a very strange title. At some points it feels like a triple A shooter with cinematic and engaging action, and at some points it feels like an under developed game! Still, if you are a die hard shooter fan and you have no other option on your hands, you can give Sniper a try and you might actually end up enjoying it.

CI Games venture into a game that’s more akin to IO Interactive’s HITMAN structure fails to provide the tools for the player to create their own narrative. It often feels disjointed, overly punishing and restrictive for no reason. A notch above Ghost Warrior 3, but not by much.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is undoubtedly a competent game for its intended purpose, with functional visuals, gameplay and narrative, albeit far from being innovative. It works well when exploiting precision variables to long range shots, but not so much in other aspects such as exploration and direct combat. Above all, an honest experience.

Despite remaining true to the essence of the franchise, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts has no elements to highlight in the FPS scene and may represent an option that attracts the attention of the public that remains true to this CI Games proposal, but nothing more.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is fun but feels less polished than Sniper Elite 4. The missions can be fun, but somehow they are less interesting overall than the storyline of its biggest competitor. Thanks to its ideas and setting the game proves to be fun, while the level design manages to make it immersive. Although the ideas are held back by several technical difficulties, the combination of stealth and sniping makes from Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts the first solid entry of the series.

Unfortunately, it is all but marred by bugs, especially the way the save system currently works… or doesn’t. If you’re in the market for a new sniping shooter, I cannot in good conscious recommend Contracts, it’s simply too frustrating to play in its current state.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts alters the course of this honed-in franchise to offer a tighter and more customizable sniping experience. It doesn't iron out all of the issues and lacks big innovations, but it's a solid fix for fans of the genre.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is definitely the best entry in these series yet. It is like a hybrid game between the linear play of first 2 games of series and open world experience of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and it compltely feels right. Of course there are many technical problems and story-telling issues, but 5 beautiful different maps, Various contracts, nice gameplay elements and effective upgrades, make Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts a really fun game. If you like to have an amazing proffesional sniper experience and feel like a ghost assassin, then Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is the best option you have.

Definitely worth playing, especially with the relatively cheap £30-£35 pricetag. It's so well presented before you step foot into the first level that I expected more from the in-game content. It goes to show that you can't judge a book by the cover, though it does a lot right, it doesn't truly push any boundaries or stand out from the crowd enough to make it an essential purchase.
