Excerpt: Silent Scope is a port. Nothing more, nothing less. What's more its not a very good one. Based on the arcade game of the same name, it throws you into the role of a sniper for hire. The President and his family have been kidnapped by a generic band of terrorists and it is up to rescue them.
Excerpt: Being Playstation 2's very first arcade shooter, Konami's Silent Scope was a title that was on the verge of dropping out of the PS2 launch and at one point it did, but made a comeback. Silent Scope is in a way a game that's a bit like Namco's Time Crisis but the action is less, oh what's that word... "fierce" in Silent Scope.
Excerpt: Developer: Konami ESRB: Mature Players: 1 Memory Card: 81KB Digital Control Analog Control Vibration Function Da Introduction: Virtua-Cop, Time Crisis, Area 51, Duck Hunt. Any of these games sound familiar? They should, as they are basically the same game. For many years now the concept of an "Arcade Shooter" has been the same.

Excerpt: Silent Scope is not the prettiest game I've seen for the PlayStation 2, but it's not bad either. The one feature that is somewhat impressive is the scope mechanism itself. Using the scope, you can zoom in on a far away target, and everything inside the scope appears nicely detailed. The scope feature is a neat gimmick and is especially cool during the dark, night scope levels.
Excerpt: Silent Scope might just show up on our “Gaming’s Guilty Pleasures” feature in the near feature. As an arcade game, this was an impressive sight. You assume the role of a police sniper as you aim to take out the crooks, looking through this awesome little night scope (with its own small screen) on the arcade gun. Bonus points are even given for headshots.
Excerpt: Adaptation de la borne d'arcade du même nom, Silent Scope se paie le luxe d'être encore plus abouti graphiquement que l'original. Dans la peau d'un sniper, vous devrez supprimer des terroristes et sauver des otages lors de missions se déroulant dans des décors variés, de nuit, dans les airs......
Excerpt: Spillet var et genialt arkade spil, hvor du fik lov til at stå med et snigskyttegevær i spillehallen, og ved hjælp af kikkertsigtet skulle du så plaffe terrorister. Et godt koncept, der holder i en spillehal, men virker søgt, trivielt og ikke særlig gennemført til Playstation 2.
Excerpt: Importé tout droit depuis les bornes arcades, Silent Scope fait son entrée sur Dreamcast, pratiquement en même temps que sur PS2. Un titre sympathique et distrayant mais pourtant pas à l'abri des balles...
