Where's the gun again?

Rob C, Amazon
11 May 2001
  • Summary: I'm sorry, but I still comprehend the fact that this shooting game is missing a gun. I know this is a slow sniper game, but still... Imagine playing Area 51, and all the great Sega Arcade shooting games without that big freaking gun. Besides, that, this game's great... I've tried shooting pedestrians, but was banned from doing so. Damn.

The fun doesn't last...

  • Summary: The graphics are definitely awesome and the strategic choices abound, but the more I play this game, the more I wish I had a gun-type controller in my hands. Also, in a possible departure from the arcade game, the story mode could use more long-term progression using memory cards. Still, it's a good break from playing SSX and NHL 2001 all day.

A good weekend rental

  • Summary: When I played this game in the arcades, I thought it was a blast so naturally I was looking forward to the ps2 version. It's basically arcade perfect, except of course without the gun. Still,even without the gun, this game is fun and even addictive,if only for a short while.Unfortanately, it also becomes a little dull and repettive and at times you'll find yourself wondering "why would they release a gun game with no gun?

A bit difficult to get used to, nevertheless fun

Robert Gonzalez, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this game when I picked up my PS2 on launch day, and I was a bit disappointed the first time I played it but it took time to get used to. While the graphics and sound are good, they are of PS1 quality. I loved the arcade version, but the PS2 version is a bit difficult to get used to as you use the controller to move the reticle, much like the old Area 51 game for PS1 (I guess it would have cost a bit more to include a scoped HK PSG-1 rifle with a cable to hook...

So called Sniping is so popular, most probable because it takes a little more skill to delecly aim at a person or object an to kill it with one shot or bullet. ...

  • Excerpt: "Silent Scope, the game that has all the best aspects of Goldeneye's Sniper gun in one game. The game that allows you to be one of those men in a batlle who hide behind walls really far away and only realise where they are staright after they shoot you dead. Yes, the game many have dreamed of, (Well, maybe not MANY, but a few) But does it live up to its expectations? Well, Yes AND No. Its hard to judge whether this is a good game really. At first ...
  • Pros: Great Graphics and AI
  • Cons: Bad Story, too short
