  • Summary: As the world's best sniper, prevent a terrorist organization from using cloning technology for global domination. Featuring expansive levels and diabolical bosses, it's time to silence the enemy threat. Silent Scope 3 delivers twice the gameplay by including the hit arcade game, Silent Scope EX! [Konami] Expand

  1. A game of high scores, precision and unlocking further stages to then score high on. It’s a game that flies in the face of new fads like stealth modes, world-building sims and realism in favour of old-skool thrills and kills.

    Doesn’t necessarily revolutionize the gaming experience—the game does, however, offer a fine continuation to the already classic series.
  3. Good, but a multiplayer mode would have been nice. [Nov 2002, p.128]
  4. Even if you play through both titles multiple times to see all of the branching missions, you can still blow through it in a day or two. [Dec 2002, p.218]
  5. The great physical satisfaction from the arcade game is lost without the honking-big sniper rifle. [Dec 2002, p.60]
  6. A decent adaptation of the arcade series, and offers a sometimes enjoyable but extremely brief experience.
  7. 40
    A cookie cutter light-gun game offering little to nothing more than the content of the first two games.

    Offered so much, yet delivered so little. Got into the game, thought "this is fun"... bit of sniping, what more could you want. Was a bit disappointed that I couldn't move around the map myself... well, it *is* only an arcade port after all. Finished the first mission on the first go, got to the map... oh yeah, there are a a few missions here on stage 1. Hang on... isn't there any other stages? Is that *all* the missions that there are? You're kidding! $109 for this??? No wonder they're shipping the first game with it. What a rip-off! Took it back to the store and took advantage of their superb "returns" policy. Now deep in the throes of Grand Theft Auto - Vice City. In short - the only exceptional thing about it is how ordinary it is. Expand
