CI Games has really outdone themselves this time. I was able to get a chance to participate in the beta a while back for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. I am pleased to say that as fun as it was playing the beta, it is just as fun if not more fun with the final product. With games such as this, I am usually really bad at them and die really easily. This is usually due to complex controls, difficulty settings or various other situations that do not cater to my skill level. SGW3 takes the controls and makes them not only easy to learn and maneuver around, but also crazy fun.

The environment that has been created for SGW3 is a beautifully well crafted and HUGE map to explore. Jump points can be discovered to help quickly navigate the map versus literally spending 5-10 minutes real time to transport yourself from one side of the map to the other either on foot or in a vehicle. One downside to the environment is the initial load time. Compared to most load times, SGW3 has a very long load time. The flip side to this however is that once the game and environment are loaded, there is little to no more additional load time at all once you have started playing.

Among the great features of the game include the bullet cam. Bullet cam is there for those elite snipers that get off the most perfect shot. Once fired, time will slow down and the camera will follow the bullet straight into the head of your target in all its glory.

Another Great Feature of the game is the ability to use an aerial drone to check out your environment before entering a patrolled area. With the drone, you have the ability to do many things that include alerting your enemies for distraction, making them on your radar, and switching between daytime and night vision. Other features are available through upgrades such as extended range and battery life. Of course what is a good game without the ability to make modifications? The modification menu in SGW3 is quite advanced from armor, to weapons, bullet types, attachments for weapons, as well as accessories such as scope repair kits, health and other items to aid you along the way.


To give you an idea of what it is like to navigate around the world and environment for SGW3, check out this gameplay we recorded during our adventures with the game…

Bottom Line

Overall, SGW3 is a blast to play. With all the main and side missions included it offers plenty of gameplay to not get bored. The open world environment lets you go just about anywhere you want and complete everything at your own pace and the order you prefer. Aside from the long load time it is well worth the wait as once loaded there is not really any more waiting as you dive straight into the action. This game is fun, easy to play, and with a solid story behind it. I would recommend this to any open world game fan that enjoys sniping or even going in full blown rush with guns blazing.
