Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Can See Far Away In The Leaves

By Jim Rossignol on March 5th, 2013.


Sniping. It’s not really fair, is it? I mean, maybe there are a lot more dudes with AKs than there are men wearing some jungle, but jungleman doesn’t have to make things so one-sided, does he? That Sniper Ghost Warrior, Too – who isn’t actually a ghost, it turns out – couldn’t perhaps give them a head start, or let them wear really thick helmets or something, makes me sad. I don’t know. I’m just saying it’s not the same as wading into the enemy base with a whirling chaingun, is it?

If you want to see what I am talking about then have a look at the trailer below, where multi-coloured men are poked in the head very hard by metal fingers. Ow!

Scoping Mechanisms: Sniper – Ghost Warrior 2

By Adam Smith on November 26th, 2012.

Games about snipers tend to involve a lot of things that aren’t sniping and in the case of Ghostlier Warrior, stabbing men in the armpit will be a significant feature if this footage is to be believed. Men are shot from afar, it’s true, but the majority of a sniper’s working day is not spent squeezing the trigger after an intake of breath so sharp it could cause a lung to collapse. In order to entertain the masses, armpit-stabbing replaces hours of lying prone in the dark, weeing in the accumulated mulch and foliage, suppressing memories of home, silently awaiting the day’s first human contact which ends in a moment of detached violence. That would be a horror game and this is a game about war.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Is Maybe Too Pretty

By John Walker on May 24th, 2012.

Hopefully that's the most horrible thing you see today.

Join us in debate. The trailer for Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 begins by saying it is all created with the game’s engine. But having missed that message, one of our number dismissed the trailer as CGI. But where is reality? If the game really looks as good as this trailer shows, it’ll be the best looking game we’ve ever seen. But being created using CryEngine, and being in-game footage, are two very different things. If a game could use focus the way this trailer does, could track slo-mo bullets, and be so meticulously directed, then it would be in a different league. That seems unlikely. Well, you watch.

Scoping Out Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 And Sniper Elite V2

By Craig Pearson on March 22nd, 2012.

The most skilled sniper can take out targets directly behind their heads
Morning sniper fans. Remember when there were no sniper related games around? The army’s stealthiest strategist has never commanded an audience, preferring camo and a nice bush to kicking down doors and shouting bad things about your various female relatives. But soon there will be two sniper game vying for your beady eyes. I’ve already spoken a bit about Sniper Elite V2, so the newest kill-cam from that will be relegated to second place. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, however, has managed to elude my scopes thusfar. What I need is a short, explanatory video, I’d say about a minute or so in length that shows off the sort of distances bullets will be traveling, and maybe the locations as well. If that could somehow happen, maybe dropping in below, then I’d be the happiest sniper.

There’s Also Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

By Jim Rossignol on August 31st, 2011.

Sniper? Or armed vagrant guy?
A profound lack of sleep has left me with a unique super-power: to be impressed and moved by anything at all. I was welling up just watching these five minutes of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 footage. Those poor bullets! Fired off into people’s icky headbits without a second thought. Separated from their cartridge buddies forever. Awful.

This footage is actually a bit old, being from GamesCom, but I missed it last week, to the annoyance of readers who sent it in. Sorry, Annoyed Men! Love you! The CryEngine-powered manshooter is out in Q1 of next year, which seems to be a true of a lot of games currently in development.
