Yeah, the control isn't so good(I seem to get stuck on invisible stuff) and the graphics not what you would expect from next gen console the game still deserves at least a rental. The idea that you get to snipe( for the most part) the entire game is pretty cool. If you want a more realistic sniping game this is it. For $40 what do you expect........ MW3. That's just not going to happen. I hope they make another 1 with a bigger budget and this would be AWESOME.
This game is good but sucks at the exact same time. Its called ghost warrior but is more like Sniper: run through a village sniping people from short range warrior. So far thats all you really do in the game, theres not much ghostlyness about it, and sometimes when you go upstairs it realy doesnt want to. Is it a good buy no, a good rent absolutely. One extra plus is the graphics are pretty good.

So I rented this game with high hopes because the game focused primarily on sniping and long range kill shots. The premise of the game is that you are well.. a sniper, who must sneak around taking out high value targets and other enemies along the way. When you first use your silenced sniper rifle, you'll find it is very similar to a game like Call of Duty. If you click and hold the right thumbstick, your character will hold his breath and become more accurate. However, as you progress in the game you will have to take longer shots to far away targets. With this aspect, the game becomes very realistic for the fact that when you hold your breath and try to shoot a far away target, a little red circle appears, not necessarily between your crosshairs. So as the target gets farther and farther away, the red circle will begin to move sporadically around your scope. I enjoy this element of the game because it takes things into effect like bullet drop, wind speed, and general distance. But, sadly, the realism aspect with sniper rifles gets thrown out the window with all the other problems in this game. To start, the AI system. Picture this scenario: You look out at a camp of 4 to 5 enemies with assualt rifles. You and your fellow sniper begin picking off enemies at around 200 to 250 yards away, hidden in leaves and brush. Suddenly you start taking fire and go from 100 health to 80. When this first happened to me, I didn't know what to do and just continued shooting. The fact that the game makes an assault rifle just as accurate as a sniper rifle from that range makes no sense. Now to the element of stealth. When the mission objective was to sneak through the enemy base without being spotted, I didn't know that one dead guy would bring me to a mission fail screen. So I retried and was laying prone in thick grass and weeds, enemies to my left. I keep moving and suddenly get spotted. This aspect takes some fun out of the game for me. This may be worth rent, but otherwise, no.
