When you first hear the name Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, you may be mistaken in thinking that this is a new expansion to Sniper Ghost Warrior, for example. In reality, despite the stupid name, it is a completely independent game that is still quite successful for shooters of sniper shooting and sneaking.

In Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, the player jumps on the boots of a sniper named Raven. In the rather generic story of the adventure, the player sets out for the fictional state of Kuamari in the Middle East to chase a leader named Bibi Rashida, who was released from the days by a strike team from his wife and former president of Kuamari. Rashida intends to retaliate with a military attack that would likely drive the entire state into a state of instability.
In addition to Rashida, Raven’s mission is to destroy the ruler’s main minions during Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 missions. Tasks are divided into two categories. Of these, in traditional missions, the player sneaks along to the target warehouse, for example, along with sniper shooting, and destroys the supplies stored there.
As a new type of mission in “Long Shot” challenges, the sniper rifle targets objects waiting up to a kilometer away and at the same time uses the weapon for a light puzzle. The Long Shot missions are similar in style to Hitman 2’s successful side game Sniper Assassin.

For example, in one task, the target person can be lured out of their accommodation by first firing the electrical cabinets of the place. However, before destroying the electrical cabinets, the camp guards had to be dripped one at a time so that the exploding electrical cabinets would not cause an alarm. Eventually, a subject coming to wonder about a power outage can be instilled with a single dose of iron delivered to the vein.
In addition, the levels have a variety of challenges that reward, among other things, shots fired from very far away or objects killed in various ways. Achievements increase the replay value of challenges in a comfortable way.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 focuses on precision shooting, regardless of the type of task, which is well executed and feels quite realistic.
With long-range bullets, it takes its own time to hit the target, and with the most difficult difficulty, the wind already has a significant effect on the bullet’s trajectory. Because of the challenge, for example, a well-targeted Headshot feels rewarding. The game even rages with the best hits and violence, showing in slow motion how the subject’s brain is literally flying into the field.
Completed tasks are rewarded with ability points as well as money that can be used to buy better weapons and other supplies. For example, there is a remote-controlled drone that allows you to inquire about objects remotely. However, the ability point and money systems seem a bit overlaid, as the supplies and abilities given at the beginning of the game go a long way.
Unfortunately, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 features a weak point that is a common Achilles heel in sneaky games. At the point where the player’s presence is revealed to the enemies, the whole snooping becomes a mediocre shooter game.
The artificial intelligence of enemies in particular would need more work. Often enemies looking for a player run in a queue one by one to death in the same range. In some cases, clearing a level from enemies is even easier after a player’s presence is revealed, which reduces the reward of sneaking.
However, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 looks good and there is a particular focus on the maps in the game. The maps are large and full of detail, which makes the adventure a nice activity. However, the duration of the game is a bit short, as the adventure passes through its main story by focusing on just over seven hours.
Overall, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is, in any case, a successful sneaky game for sniper lovers. The € 40 price tag is a bit high for the short duration, but if you can find Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 on sale, you can recommend the game without hindrance.
