Man, I must be bored today to post this: Cubbies already got his copy in the mail, told his mom he was sick so he would not have to go to school....and already played the Hades out of this game.
Still not buying it though.

This review is from: Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 (Video Game)
This is my third sniping based game iv played(ghost warrior, sniper elite and this) and this is the best out of the bunch.
I truly hated the first ghost so much I really wasn't very interested in this but hey for $40 plus I get he first one that I can resell I said by not.
Iv played a few missions so far and I very much like it.
The story is realistic and fun to play, the gameplay is very solid and the sniping mechanics are top notch.
You must lay or crouch when shooting or the scope will bounce around.
You must gently squeeze the trigger or the recoil will cause the gun to jump up.
Enemies will flank you when they have you out numbered, but will stay back and try to pick you off when there's only a few of them.
One thing I'm very happy they fixed is you can now lay in a bush or in grass and be hidden and enemies will run by you. You couldn't do that in the first one, they always saw you.
The graphics are very outdated. Blood looks terrible, plants and explosions look really bad as well.
The gameplay is outstanding. One of the most realistic shooters created, if not the most.
Sound is good but not great. Iv already encountered a few audio bugs that caused me have to restart my Xbox.
One game mode, 2 maps, 5 guns, bullet detection isnt good. Why even put it in the game?
For $40 this game is great and a ton of fun and well worth the price.
