  • Summary: Using weapons like the Thermal Vision Scope and X-Ray Scope (without the use of a light gun peripheral), Dark Silhouette pits the player against enemy terrorists in four single & two-player modes of play, including Story, Shooting Range, Duel, and Original.

    Guiding a cursor around a screen, activating a scope, and taking out targets is certainly an original and enjoyable experience, but the repetition of the enemy patterns make it difficult to return to after the game has been beaten or you've had your fill of playing sniper for a day.
  2. Even though SS2: Dark Silhouette is an improvement on the original in just about every way, there just wasn't enough to "blow me away", as the saying goes.
  3. It's not the deepest game ever made, but it is one of those things that you can use to get a quick fix of gaming. [Oct 2001, p.135]
  4. A very faithful recreation of its coin-operated brethren in both its graphics and gameplay. The bad news, however, is that without the light gun, it’s just not as fun. Plain as that.
  5. There aren't really enough features here to recommend Silent Scope 2 to anyone other than those who are maniacally obsessive about the game ...or those rich I-Link-two-big-TVs-in-the-same-room-owning-people.
  6. While the gameplay and graphics are just about identical to those of the arcade version, the lack of that big gimmicky sniper rifle makes the game downright silly.
  7. This is one port that went from arcade star to console dog. Heinous, dude.
