Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 puts you right into the action. You play as Captain Cole Anderson, a soldier with a bad habit of questioning mission objectives and pissing off his by-the-book superior officer. I learned this during a short mission briefing before I found myself waist-deep in a jungle river on my first clandestine assignment. The environments look like sandboxes but function as corridors Though it looks and controls like a modern military shooter, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 shares more in common with the stealth genre than a typical FPS. Encounters are staged and slow, focused on finding and dropping your unsuspecting enemies one by one. The smartly executed first level paired me with an AI ally who taught me about the sniper lifestyle and the advantages of tactical...

A planned downloadable content pack adding the ability to dismember enemies in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has been canceled, developer City Interactive confirmed with Videogamer today. A representative for the company told Videogamer the add-on feature has been dropped, and provided no concrete reasoning for the cancellation. "I can confirm that CI Games are no longer going to be releasing the dismemberment DLC," the representative said. The tactical shooter was initially slated to release with the ability on day one, allowing players to shoot off opponents' limbs with higher-caliber guns and explosives. City Interactive announced last summer that the feature had been removed in order to prevent the title from being banned in Germany, due to the country's strict laws on the sale violent...

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will be released next week, and the launch trailer put out today by developer City Interactive shows off some of the sniping, stabbing, shooting and 'sploding action the game contains. The story follows Capt. Cole Anderson, a private security consultant, in a globe-trotting adventure that appears to be concerned with taking down a rogue leader. Along the way, Anderson and his team won't only be sniping; they'll also stay hidden with close-quarters combat as a complement to their long-range kills, and sometimes, circumstances will force them to go loud as well. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 launches March 12 on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It was originally scheduled for release last August, and was later delayed to October before being confirmed for that...

A sniper has one job — to make an enemy combatant very dead — and to do that job, a sniper needs tools. This trailer for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 shows off some of the tools that players will be able to utilize in order to kill foes from hundreds of feet away. Thermal vision can make targets easier to spot in lush underbrush, night vision helps for missions in the dark, and the sniper's training lets him remember enemies' locations even when he's moved into cover. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 hits Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PCs on March 12.
