Most of the game is set in Georgia, a country between Eastern Europe and Western Asia. As someone who lives far from these regions, it personally fascinated me to see the variety of the environments in different sections of the map. Even though I played it at medium settings due to hardware limitations and that surely took out some of the experience, I would still call it visually impressive. Some parts of the map may appear, to a limited extent, inferior-looking compared to others, but that’s mainly due to the open-world nature of the game. The places where you go during missions are especially curated and filled with details.
Story ▲▼
The game starts with a prologue where you’re introduced to the main character, the U.S Marine Jonathan “Jon” North, and his younger brother Robert, as you also learn more about the game’s mechanics. Jon and Robert, who also joined his brother in the marines, are sent on a mission in the Russian-Ukrainian border to destroy an abandoned set of Soviet-era bioweapons to prevent them from being stolen by terrorists. At the end of the prologue, an unexpected event happens, and Jon gets knocked down. The game then cuts to the present 2 years later, when he is sent to Georgia in a new, completely different and hard quest: the destabilization of the local Georgian separatist movement. At the same time, there’s another unanswered question: nobody knows where his brother is. However, some clues are slowly gathered throughout the story. So, the player has two objectives in mind: destroy the Separatists and find Robert. Then, another unexpected events happens: Robert is not being held as a prisoner, but he's part of a secret group of high-tech soldiers under a codename, "Armazi": the 23 Society. He was drugged and brainwashed to be transformed into a supersoldier. How will it end? That's up to the player to discover.
The story as a whole is not particularly engaging, but it’s not bad and has some moments of particular interest. Apart from the main brothers, the other characters aren’t a great focus, since they fail to build an attachment with the player.
Gameplay ▲
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has three difficulty levels: Normal, Hard and Challenge mode. Having played the game on Normal, I've found the difficulty to be enjoyable and balanced.
You might be tricked by the open-world of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. As you progress through the story and the acts, you go to a new sector of the map, but you can still go to the previous ones either by selecting a mission that requires you to go there or by using fast travel / driving to the sector limits with your car, even if the game doesn't specifically tell you that.
About vehicles: there isn’t much variety between them because while there are several ones on the map, you can only use your own car.
About exploration, there are different layers of interactions in the game’s world apart from main missions and “side-ops” ones. The game's map in fact offers you lots of "points of interest", which usually contain collectible items, useful items, weapons or modifications and even minor activities, such as the possibility to save civilains being held as forced laborers by the Separatists. What you can also do is attack and conquer outposts (yeah, it reminds you of Far Cry, doesn’t it?).
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 also has a huge arsenal of weapons available for players to unlock or purchase, between snipers, secondary rifles or handguns, as well as useful gadgets to have in your inventory or as weapon attachments.
The strongest point in the game is definitely the choice given to the player of how they want to complete a mission. Do they want to find a high place to snipe everyone from it? Do they want to sneak inside tunnels, buildings to silently kill enemies? Do they want to go in with a heavy machine gun and kill all of them? They can do everything above.
Depending on your playstyle, the game offers you different ability trees, each with the same number of unlockable skills, giving you extra perks in combat. My suggestion would be to use the sniper, since it’s the main mechanic of the game, it gives you extra points for kills in the "Sniper" tree, and it has a special cinematic view focused on the bullet when you shoot someone in the head. It’s also the best weapon to use in the game. You can adjust both the zoom and the weapon zeroing.
However, if you're more of a forefront tactical player, there's also the "Ghost" tree made for you. And finally, if you're all-in for full action, you will like the "Warrior" tree.
Before entering the place of a mission, it’s better to analyze the area and find out where the enemies are. You can do that in two ways: you either find a high place and manually spot them with the sniper, or, quicker way, you can use a cool tool, which is the drone (mechanic also used in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, for example). With the drone, as you scan the area and spot people, they are automatically marked on the screen if enemies. Once you get a good map of the enemies, you can call the drone back and use your preferred strategy to complete the mission.
Overall the gameplay is really enjoyable, despite not implementing anything new on the table. But as I always think, it’s better to be inspired by other games and do things right than trying to create new gameplay features that are not fun and result weak.
Soundtrack ▼
The soundtrack is uninspired and shallow for the most part. The main menu song, called “Unappreciated Beauty” by Aurelia Shrenker, is really good, but that’s about it. While driving a car, there’s an option to turn on the radio. Most of the times it just plays the main menu song, but there are also other tracks featured in the game, which have not captured my interest.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a compelling but flawed game. The unengaging story and some not admirable character writing are all saved by a captivating gameplay which always offers varied and unique possibilities of progress, together with an expanded set of unlockable skills to learn. The diversity of playstyles and tactics enhances the immersion and really makes you feel like a talented soldier. Right now, the game is just 20€ and, in my opinion, it’s a fair price for it, keeping in mind though that it’s four years old and the game often goes on sale.

i felt like a sniper, a ghost, and a warrior but i didn't feel 3.

Review from Steam

It's not a linear game like the SGWs before. It's basically SGW with "Ubisoft open world formula". Collecting all the stuff can be a bit tedious, but the landscapes in the game are beautiful and the classic sniper gameplay mechanics are still there.

Review from Steam

I just wanna kill dudes from far away and watch when they try to find out what happened. Then kill more dudes. This game delivered that which is what kept me playing.
At first, I didn't really care much for the game. Then at one point I hated it because of the weird save system. But then I came back to it the next day, tried again and since then it grew on me.
But...there's some things that still annoy me about this game, which would have made it SO much better:
-The story sucks. So does the writing/dialogue. The ending is...well it sucks too.
-The main protagonist is a total douchebag.
-The save system sucks. I always found myself fast traveling to my outpost to get a guaranteed save...For example, If you do an outpost, get far but die, the game kicks you back to the nearest fast travel station. All enemies respawn but you just lost the ammo you used...what?!?!? (See my grenade tip below to help with this).
-The enemies can have hawk eye vision with deadly accuracy using automatic rifles from a distance, (I played on normal).
-I could do without all the animations to get in a car, looting, open stuff at my safehouse, and releasing the drone, to name a few.
-Booting up a game leads to a lengthy load screen. I'm using a regular SSD but it probably took about 40 seconds to load,( with a terrible song too).
-Instead of one big map, we get 3 smaller maps, (called regions). It was probably done for engine/programing purposes to make it easier on the devs and it's a CI game, but if you travel between regions expect another 40 second load time, (and that song, I can't stand that song!!!)
But there's one thing that kinda made the game better, and it's the drone you get. If you've played Assassin's Creed Origins it's a lot like your bird. He's always there to scout areas, tags enemies and shows some important info about a camp etc which helps a ton in figuring out your plan of attack. *Whatever you do, upgrade the drone with camoflage, intelligent recon, and hacking ASAP* It makes it way easier and fun to get through outposts in general and find better entrances to many areas.
Make sure to always carry at least one grenade so if you're in the middle of nowhere and a fast travel is too far away you can jump on it and die, then get teleported to a fast travel station so you can fast travel again to your safehouse to restock on ammo.
I really liked the most wanted side missions where you kill a specific target. I did them all. Loved it.
The graphics are ok, the character face models are not, the skill point upgrades are cool but a bit lacking, the shooting is fun and so is the shotgun, and the frame rate would never stay at a locked 60fps no matter what I did. It's far from a perfect game which is a shame because it DOES have a lot of potential, but I still had fun killing dudes.

Review from Steam

So this isn't a necessarily a *bad* game...
The fun stealth / sniping parts are just a chore to get to because they are spread out all over a dead and annoying to traverse open world. You spend a lot of time just driving to POIs for a new gun camo skin or to get to an outpost to get to the good parts of the gameplay. Once you are actually AT an outpost or enemy camp it's fun as hell though. The sniping, bullet cam, recon, infiltration etc. is really decent for a AA game.
Having said all of that, the two new games in the franchise (SGW: Contracts & SGW: Contracts 2) take everything about this game, and put it in a much tighter and polished package. The new games cut out all the filler open world stuff and just chain the best gameplay parts together, but still retain big open maps / levels so it doesn't feel like its purely on rails.
This game is for sure worth it on a deep sale, but honestly you're better off just getting the two newest games mentioned above if you want updated / polished sniping games.
