Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Is Maybe Too Pretty

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.

Well yes. Here's some actual footage of the game being played:

It looks nice enough, if for some reason mostly set in plain green corridors. But perhaps not quite the revolution in gaming the more recent trailer suggests. Still, pretty, snipey game, out this August.
