This is the second sniping-dedicated game from City-Interavtive, as a follow up to Sniper: Art of Victory. Sniper: Ghost Warrior is a budget title, originally retailing for 39.99 USD. Its release date was repeatedly pushed back, leading Vinny to question the multiple times it showed up in the 'new releases' section of the bombcast.
A United States Government run Uranium mine has fallen into the hands of terrorists. It is up to Sgt. Tyler Wells and his Delta Force squad to inflitrate the compound and stop a potential nuclear crisis. Snipers are very effective in mines and large industrial areas.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior is an attempt at making a sniping simulator. It goes as far as to not only factor in environmental factors such as rain and wind, but also implements a breathing and heart rate system that affects accuracy.
