The first Sniper: Ghost Warrior holds a special place in my heart. It certainly wasn't without its technical problems, but the prospect of a game focused purely on sniping, my favorite weapon specialty, was intriguing enough to at least capture my interest. Now, just over two years later, City Interactive is stepping things up big time for the sequel and giving it a much-needed makeover on CryEngine 3.
Thanks to the new graphics and AI boosts, along with a handful of tweaks and other improvements, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is now officially on my must-have list for 2012. Watch the video above for some snippets and impressions of the game's single-player campaign!
