Siberian Strike is the first DLC offering from City Interactive for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. The DLC became available on Wednesday, March 27 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for 800MP, PlayStation®Network for 9,99 €/9,99 $/ 8,99 £ and Steam for 9,99 €/9,99 $/8,99 £. Those that embark on this purchase will obtain a new sideline campaign to play.
Set in the remote abandoned Siberian city of Birsovik, the Russian government established a top secret military installation focused on arms R&D. American intelligence gets word that the facility shifted its focus recently to weapons of mass destruction. A CIA operative, M. Diaz is sent in undercover, posing as lab personnel, to uncover the truth. When he stops sending in reports, a search mission is quickly put together.
The player steps into the boots of Cole “Sandman” Anderson, a veteran special ops sniper, now in the ranks of Task 121 – a group put together to counter any WMD-hungry warlord’s whim in the Asia – Pacific region. Anderson is ordered to locate Diaz’s GPS signal and assess the situation on the ground, then extract any intelligence he may have found.
The gameplay is the main thing I will focus on in this review. The game seems to not only be sharper but this campaign doesn’t limit you to playing the way they tell you too. It is not guided as much as normal campaign. A majority of the time you can go where you want to go and shoot who you want when you want. This is something we didn’t see much in the game’s main campaign.
Short & Simple….
Fun Factor: 7
Sound Quality: 7
Online: N/A This DLC only expands on the solo gameplay
Replay Value: 6
Overall Score : 6.9
Still For Sniper Fans Only!
A little better than the game’s campaign only cause you can do what you want and not guided. Overall, some of the same nuisances are still there. I can still only recommend it for the fans of the game and sniper fans only.
