There's something almost soothing about lying in the jungle, controlled breathing, surveying the area through your sights...until you remember you've got a rifle, and there's some nasty people it needs pointing at.

Although not quite the classic Stealth game, Ghost Warrior 2, like its predecessor,  does require a lot of careful scouting and planning before you start shooting. Kicking down the front door will definitely not work. And really, that's a large part of the attraction of the game, risk and skill based gameplay. As you sneak closer to the camp, you pray the alarm won't get sounded by them finding the dead scout; you have to get inside by the time they find him, but you can't run or you'll be seen.

These elements have traditionally made the series fun and challenging, often helping to distinguish it from other FPS games but will City Interactive be able to deliver on this again or do you think the formula needs updating?
