Don't look at me, I'm just as bewildered as many of you are that Sniper: Ghost Warrior did well enough to score a sequel. Perhaps it had something to do with the sexy scenery City Interactive is showing off in the sequel's screenshots.

While I'm a huge proponent for sniping early and often, I just couldn't get into the original Sniper: Ghost Warrior. I generally prefer a game where I get the odd chance to show off my long-range projectile firing skills. Maybe the game was just too much of a good thing?


Either way, even more of a good thing is coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in early 2012.
