In Ghost Warrior 3 you play as Jonathan North, a retired American Marine, who takes up arms once again to tackle issues festering at the heart of Georgia. CI Games' production is a first-person tactical shooter with a full open world and lots of possible gear customization.
Open-world experience Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is going to be set in modern Georgia, with several large maps to be fully explored during core and side missions alike. The game will not give you tasks giftwrapped for you, however. Scout your surroundings to find missions, safehouses, new upgrades and more.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 gameplay will keep you entertained and feel like a skilled operative when you discover new places and solution through a careful recon of its huge maps. Every approach works Despite its title, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 does not lock you into solely the role of a sniper. You can tackle the missions in any way you have the necessary tools for.
You can stay in the shadows and eliminate your targets up close and personal with your short-range weapons or a knife. Or you can go in guns blazing, and still successfully complete your objective. Complex ballistics Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 brings realistic bullet physics and elaborate gun setups to satisfy any fan of long-distance shooting.
Complete missions and do recon to find valuable upgrades for your guns and pick your favorite weapons based on several statistics such as range or noise. Diversify your approach with special ammo like exploding bullets. Assess the shot trajectory based on different factors like gravity of wind to land a perfect hit.
Flexible progression system Your performance is graded and described using three different approaches. One is the Sniper, focused on improving your sniping efficiency with abilities like holding your breath or improving your stance. Or you can be a Warrior, going into the fray with shotguns, assault rifles and explosives.
Finally the Ghost is there to help you get up close and personal with stealth and gadgets. Which one will be your choice?.
A slick sniping title in name, but one that also encourages creativity, delivers action, and demands adaptation, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is one hell of a ride. Although it has a lackluster story and a handful of minor issues, it’s still an immensely enjoyable separatist kill fest set in the gorgeous open-world landscapes of former Soviet Georgia.
I really feel sorry for Ghost Warrior 3 - this is the first game in the series that had a potential to finally rival Sniper Elite. Unfortunately, things like weak stealth mechanics, awful story and pointless open world really let it down.
I was certain I was in for another grueling and frustrating disappointment. I was wrong, incredibly so. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has clawed its way up from the grave of a series that shouldn't be, and has made itself a decent title. Maybe one that will finally turn things around in future installments.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 can be an enjoyable FPS game, but unfortunately the very good shooting sensations are not enough to ignore all the flaws, AI problems and glitches of the game.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 attempts to push the franchise forward by introducing new mechanics and an open world, but the delivery falls flat. With an underwhelming story and plenty of bugs, the result is a game stuck in mediocrity.
When it works it works pretty darn well. Unfortunately that isn't too often. [Issue#262, p.56]
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is a mix of disparate game genres that often do not make sense. Atmosphere and action gameplay are not bad, but instead of graceful ballistic dances, it rather shoots its own legs with technical issues, ugly graphics, poor optimization, and a miserable story, which results in a title that has nothing to offer.
