Sniper: Ghost Warrior has sold over 3 million copies

Wut.
GameStop said:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 takes the bulls-eye precision of its 3 million plus best-selling predecessor to new and exciting heights. It is the only multi-platform FPS modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience and built using the most advanced game engine in CryENGINE3. The missions of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 are graphically stunning and provide more diverse sniper challenges. Feel the kill as you experience unprecedented levels of realism in weapons, ballistics and environmental factors.

The game also had a 55 meta critic score.

It's amazing what people wil buy when it's 90% off.

Somewhere in that genre is a really, really great game ready to be made. I don't think City Interactive is going to make it though.

I hope we get some PC CryEngine 3 eye candy for the screenshots thread with Ghost Warrior 2!

Well it's been a budget title for pretty much every day bar it's first week of launch. Hell I've got 2 copies of it that I haven't even touched due to being free (GMG freebie and a crimbo present from someone who will be getting significantly worse returns now).

That doesn't really mean much though in terms of quality IMO or even a persons taste. I've enjoyed many games with metacritic scores that aren't exactly high just like for example LA Noire and Resistance 2 have scores of 89 and 87 respectively and they are two of the biggest piles of gaming related shite I've ever had the misfortune to play.

It sucked and didn't deserve this but after how they ruined the Sniper Elite series after a very promising first effort the sequel of this is the best chance we have for a decent stealth action FPS experience, especially if they make it open unlike Crysis 3...

Sniper Elite V2 has its problems but it's still a good game and well worth playing. Sniper Elite NZA is a very fun addon as well.

Of course I hope they learn from that and with the DLC levels being a bit more open the fans have made clear what they want from the SE games.

I'd have thought it looks too generic to appeal to casuals. No idea if the game itself is any good, but it doesn't really seem exciting from the name or box-art.
Too generic for casuals? No such thing. Do you understand how many times I've seen people pick the sniper as their first class their first time playing a new game? Too many.

All those sniper noobs who ruin Battlefield matches need to buy this weak shit and stay the hell off the Battlefield servers.

I disagree. That's how I'd describe the original game.

Fair enough :) I can see why fans of the first game would dislike it and believe me many fans do (and I can completely understand why), just that as an action sniper game I found it a blast to play. Multiplayer was pretty good fun as well.
