Summary: WEll, I know this games hasn't gotten killer reviews, but I want to do it a little justice. I think it is a nice game to just throw in the ps2 for a spin. Takes little effort, controls are quick to learn and when isn't it fun to cap a guy in the head and get major kudos for it? One HUGE knock on this game is apparently it's too easy.
Summary: I received Silent Scope for Christmas. I'm a huge fan of the arcade game and its sequel, so I was a little apprehensive about playing it without the sniper rifle. I keep reading all of these complaints about having no gun, but get over it already...you knew when you bought the game that there would be no gun, so it couldn't have been THAT big a surprise.

Summary: Silent Scope, developed by Konami does exactly what it says on the box…… It’s a game all about the phenomenon of ‘sniping’ by using the so called ‘Sniper Rifle’, which has now appeared an my other games mostly in First Person Shooters (FPS). 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 is a shooting game with a twist, you use a sniper rifle instead of a normal pistol or machine gun.

Excerpt: "I loved the game to bits after playing it on a friend’s Playstation 2. There are a few different modes of play, which make the game very exciting and indeed very playable, but its lack of a scope gun real does remove that arcade fell to the game, I have to say if I was not all worked up about the Sony / Napster issues I still would have been willing to pay the £39 99 for it, or even more if it did indeed have that gun with it, let us just hope ...
Summary: After I purchased a ps2 I thought that silent scope was a must have game as it looked really fun and is the sort of game I like. Here’s what I think of it now The Story When a political conference is called in Chicago, the president and his family have to go up, but they don’t get to Chicago because on their way they are kidnapped by a group of armed terrorists.
