Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 launched on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 last Tuesday, on April 25, as the third installment in a series of FPS games by Polish studio CI Games (who are also the authors of Lords of the Fallen). Sadly, despite several delays, the game failed to live up to fans’ expectations and has been getting mixed reviews.

One of the most annoying things about Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is the fact that it takes 5 minutes to load the game on consoles. CI Games stands for the long loading time, explaining that it enhances the performance later on. However, that doesn’t mean that the program is free of bugs and fps drops – quite the contrary. Other things reviewers often complain about are poor plot and dialogues as well as the fact that the game has launched with single player only – fans must wait for multiplayer until Q3 2017.
