Summary: Silent Scope cannot be played using a control pad. The "scope" moves so slowly, and it is rather frustrating to look for enemies while being shot sixty million times because it takes twelve years to move the gun scope around to find targets. A good PS2 zapper, if included, would make this game 4 or even 5 stars. The graphics are crisp and clear, the sound is good, but none of that matters when your game is over in ten seconds because you can't look around fast enough.
Summary: Following my own advice I rented this game first before buying it. The game being a 5-day rental, I only kept it for a day. After 20 minutes the game becomes very, very, boring. I know this has been said many times before, but this game should have been left in the arcade.
Summary: This game .... When I buy a game I want to be able to play it over and over. But with this game if you play it once you know all there is about it. The snipers are always in the same spot, doing the same thing for the same amount of time. If you like arcade games like this rent don't buy this game it's a waste of [money].
Summary: This was one game that I remotely enjoyed in the arcade, but unfortunately what made the game worth its while was the gun. The gun was the whole attraction of the game, which was otherwise just a dull shoot-em-up. But my question is why? Why repackage a game that was clearly marked for the Arcades with the extra guns and what-not.
Summary: I'm not a gamer really, but I do watch my friends play alot. My boyfriend bought his PS2 and the first game we rented was Silent Scope. I suppose I'm just not fast enough or coordinated enough to move my scope around and still shoot accurately. That darn scope is the problem...it is hard to put the sniper in the target and still shoot him before he moves. My guy beat this game in one day...he had to take a couple of breaks to let some steam out hitting his golf clubs.
Summary: When I played this game in the arcade, I really got a kick out of it. When I first got my PS2, this was one of my first games. Actually it was the first I played. The game is very disappointing. First of all, unlike the gun feature at the arcade, using the joystick makes scoping in on targets difficult at best. This is even more true when shooting at bosses. The sound was nothing special. The graphics were ok.
Summary: Pure junk. I played the game for 10 mins. Wish I could seal it back up and return it. I'd rather be playing astroids on Atari. Speaking of old systems, the graphics on this junk is similar to the old Nintendo. This junk has no business embarassing Playstation 2. I wouldn't even recommend renting it, it isn't worth the 5 bucks.
Summary: this is the exact game as you will find in the arcade only there is no gun, the best part of the game. There are only 6 levels that last about 3 minutes each. It will be fun for the first couple times you play, as is any other game, but with no new levels or features and no gun, this game is a dud. The gameplay is pretty poor to boot. buyer beware.
Summary: This game is great if you like the training mode of shooting targets, but as for the arcade mode it is way too short. I had a great time the first few times I played it. Now it is boring because there you do the same missions over and over. RENT THIS GAME BEFORE YOU BUY IT OR YOU WILL BE EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!
Summary: I bought this game because of these reviews and all I can say is too many [people] reviewed the arcade game and not the PS2 game. The Arcade game is great. Worthless controls makes this one not even worth renting. The game is average to dull until the first time you end up in a helicoptor at which point the controls simply leave you helpless. In the arcade the same scene meant a challenging headshot that made you feel like you could work for the CIA if you made it.
