  1. A brief affair, a perfectly formed kinetic buzz. And, a long time after you've finished with it, you'll still hear the sounds. Repeat after us: Click. Thud. Buchhhhaaaaa.
  2. Silent Scope looks good, sounds good, plays okay, but it's still a lot of fun -- but there's not a whole lot left to enjoy.
  3. 78
    This is a good solid game, but nothing truly spectacular. It is a fun shooter, with a twist. That sniper scope adds a new dimension to the shooter genre.
  4. 64
    Great fun while it lasts, which in most cases should wind up being as many hours as you can count on your hands.
  5. Suffers tremendously because of the control issues. Without the sniper rifle peripheral that made the arcade game a joy, Silent Scope is only a game that entertains in a brief, arcade-y way.
  6. It's a gun game without a gun, and there's really no way to get past that one glaring omission.
  7. The translation is nearly arcade perfect. The only thing missing is a full-sized sniper rifle, which ends up making a big difference.
