The Sniper: Ghost Warrior games have been largely forgettable affairs. They sit squarely in the space between modern Call of Duty games and Rebellion’s Sniper Elite franchise. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 was just a bland sort of me-too game that didn’t really stand out in any way. CI Games says they’ve taken the criticism to heart and are going full-out on the third game. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is in an open-world setting with side quests, crafting, Witcher/Batman vision, and skills to upgrade. In the E3 developer commentary video, CI stresses that they’re really going to make something special.
You play as the titular Ghost Warrior roaming the Georgian countryside making life miserable for Russian bad guys by taking out key personnel. You also get to control drone strikes. It’s an open-world RPG shooter mixed with Tom Clancy’s morality. Wait. That sounds familiar.
