CI Games S.A. is a Polish video game developer and publisher based in Warsaw, founded in 2002, through the merger of three video game companies: Lemon Interactive, We Open Eyes and Tatanka. It was initially focused on distributing and developing budget-priced games, until 2008 with the release of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, which came out two years later.

Why Their Games Used to Suck

NOTE: This only applies to games released before 2014.

  1. In most games, the graphics were quite poor.
  2. There were broken scripts in some games, especially on Sniper: Art of Victory.
  3. There were collision problems. For example, in Wolfschanze II, enemies could shoot you through the wall.
  4. Some games are just cheap rip-offs of more famous first-person shooters (like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor).
  5. A lot of games got a really bad translation, with a lot of typos in several languages (like German, Hungarian and Polish).
  6. Some of the games have no medikits, and if you reach the checkpoint, you need to continue with your remaining health.
  7. Their games are really short some barely lasting 2 hours.
  8. Some of their games have terrible mechanics.
  9. Most of the games have a boring and repetitive gameplay.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Most of their games have a really decent cover art.
  2. Since Sniper: Ghost Warrior, they stopped developing/publishing several games a year. Since when they stopped doing this practice, they have released several decent games such as Lords of the Fallen, Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, expect for Enemy Front.
  3. Old games, despite the poor quality, cost very cheaply.
  4. During the era of budget games, not all games were bad. A worthy example is Chronicles of Mystery: The Secret Tree of Life for the Nintendo DS.
  5. In Poland, they distributed great indie games such as Braid and World of Goo.
