There's a whole host of things that you can do with each mission in perhaps the most accurate Sniper title out there to date.  Add to the mix this graphically pleasing trailer:

So all in, prepare to don the Gilly Suit, make sure that Rifles clean soldier and prepare to make yourself one with your environment, we may see you on the field of battle, although if we're doing it right, you won't see us... Game Blurb: Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 takes the bulls-eye precision of its best-selling predecessor to new and exciting heights. Powered by the CryENGINE 3 engine, the missions of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 are graphically stunning and more challenging as you once again step into the ghilliesuit of a special ops sniper to take down the enemy.

More skills, more rewards
