Anyone played this?

How open world and open ended is it, compared to Sniper Elite 4 or Metal Gear Solid V?

Edit: They fixed the bug.

It's not "open world" at all, rather there are a list of missions that you will progress through. The missions are large and contain multiple objectives and challenges. The game is more like Hitman than for example MGSV in that regard.

As a stealth/sniper-game it is pretty good. There is less wackyness than in Hitman, which may be good or bad depending on your preference. I have not completed the game and there is a superannoying bug (in game mouse cursor) on the GOG-version, which I am unsure whether they have fixed or not yet.

Apart from the bug the game is solid enough. Not a masterpiece, but it feels more focused and refined than previous Ghost Warrior-games.

Sniping is pretty satisfying except you can't turn off (AFAIK) in-scope wind-adjustment even on the hardest difficulty, which is really odd.
