The role of a sniper can be a daunting and exciting one. Everything that may be decided on the battlefield could be judged with just one single bullet. You lie in wait ready to strike, like a predatory animal about to kill it's next meal. You observe what's happening through your scope. You might not get a good view, so perhaps you should hurry to a better spot but make sure nobody sees you. It's just you, your rifle, the bullet and the target. You see the mark. It's now or never. You breath in. You take aim and pull the trigger and in a flash, the bullet flies, with full intent to kill. The sniper. A tough job, but someone's got to do it.
How exactly did this game manage to turn a role that intense and exciting into an absolute bore is anyone's guess.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is a first-person shooter that prides itself on being an authentic representation of the role of a sniper. You'll be sneaking into enemy territory where chaotic activity is taking place while you remain calm and collective. While the enemies are distracted, you silently take them out with a single shot from your sniper rifle. You'll have to carefully observe changes in the wind as you don't want your bullet flying off target. You're able to breath in which slows time down giving you more chance to take the shot. You can also take out two enemies with one shot. Sometimes you'll have to take out certain objects which helps friendly assault squads storm their targets or cause distractions for the enemy. If you're left with one target left, your shot will be presented as a slick kill-cam shot where you see a close up of the bullet before it impacts.
