This is the second sniping-dedicated game from City-Interactive, 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.
