Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 | Review

That of the sniper, as we know, has always been one of the most fascinating war professions. The art of waiting, the gratification of a successful shot, the study of planning and the apotheosis of the cold mind: a whole series of elements that can only bewitch and that the videogame world has tried to capture in various works . Among the main franchises that have ventured into this venture we can find Sniper Elite and Sniper Ghost Warrior, with the latter being distinguished from the first as a first and not a third person. The last episode, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, has recently landed on the PS5 as well, in a refined version able to take advantage of the technical characteristics of the Sony flagship and of which we are finally ready to talk to you.

Sniper profession

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 tells of the exploits of Raven, our digital alter ego and formidable sniper, in a Middle Eastern state as troubled on a military level as it is strategic in the global geopolitical panorama. A setting that is not exactly too lucky in terms of time, given what has been happening in the world in recent months, but which goes well with a whole series of situations in which we will be called into question in the role of silent gods of death. Elimination of priority targets from a distance, sabotage of stations and much more: these are in fact just some of the tasks that we will face in the course of about ten hours of play of the work of CI Games, with an anonymous but sufficient plot of espionage and political tensions in the background.

In practice Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is developed through a series of macro-missions, each of them composed of minor objectives. A simple but functional setting, which at the same time allows to offer a slightly less linear progression, since it is possible to decide in what order and how to complete these individual challenges, more substantial and lively missions and facilitate the player. After completing one or more of the objectives of the single region, this is the name of each macro-mission, it is in fact possible to request the extraction, without necessarily what to carry out each single target. A simple trick, which allows you to face each challenge in a different way, changing equipment and approach. Nothing sensational, of course, but there is no doubt how it all worked out in the end, with the choice of CI Games proving successful from this point of view.

For the rest, Contracts 2 is exactly how is expected, that is an FPS focused above all on the art of sniping. Great care is in fact placed on the study of wind and distance, with a whole series of settings and different degrees of difficulty based on these aspects. Whether you prefer to get closer to realism, obviously as far as possible for what is still an arcade-style game, or whether you decide to live a lighter, but still satisfying experience, it is therefore possible to have fun in Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2.

A good product, but not very refined

Less successful are the more traditional FPS phases, in which for one reason or another we will find ourselves fighting at close range with the various opponents. On such occasions, the various limits of the game emerge, ranging from a shooting phase that is certainly not superfine to an inadequate and easily predictable AI. Several perplexities also emerge also in the phases of hard and pure sniping in the situations in which one is discovered. In this case, even if positioned more than a kilometer away from the opponents, it happens to be hit more and more times by militias equipped with trivial assault rifles from a distance in which a meticulous ballistic study is instead required on our side. to get close to a single target. In short, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is certainly a fun game, but certainly not refined on every aspect.

They close the overall playful panorama of the gadget title, such as an automatic turret or a reconnaissance drone, some bland role-playing elements, with a small number of skills and boosts to be unlocked through small skill trees , and, above all, of the screens in which it is possible to modify the equipment and accessories of the various weapons, selecting various types of sights, silencers and so on. Something a must in a title like Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, which manages to make the arsenal in the hands of players more versatile. Definitely recommended, especially at the highest levels of difficulty, is the study of the characteristics of the mission, in order to properly select and customize the right gun.

The best version of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2

On PS5 Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 has definitely an edge over other gaming platforms, with the wait for this version that has therefore paid off. In addition to the obvious graphic improvements compared to the old gen, with the latest effort by CI Games which is playable on PS5 both in Quad HD at 60 frames per second and in 4K at 30 fps, there are also other upgrades present. Impossible not to mention, for example, a good use of the adaptive dualsense triggers, with personalized feedback for each weapon, and the considerable saving of time in uploads attributable to the performing PS5 SSD. There are also numerous DLCs, which enrich the content offer of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 both with numerous weapons and skins and the new expansion Banquet of the Butcher.
