Sniper: Ghost Warrior (1)
was a great game, although it had some bugs and strange issues in it.
now that GW2 comes to the Cryengine i for sure will give 2 a try ones it is released. GW1 had already very large landscapes to kill in, can't imagine how large the levels now will be in part 2, with the Cryengine.

I haven't played 1, but the screenshot for 2 looks awesome. Looks like I have a new game to get.
