  1. The added training mode in the home version doesn't make up for the fact that you can master the game in less than a day.
  2. The absence of the sniper rifle peripheral, which made the arcade game exceptional, sucks the life out of this title.
  3. Gun usage would have made it a closer match to the arcades, and more levels would have made me feel much better about it on Day 2.
  4. You can beat it and explore all that it has to offer in a couple of hours, but it's still a fun game.
  5. I really like SS and will pull it out of the shelf once every few moons, when I'm about three dozen other PS2 games shy of suggesting you spend $50 for it, when the same price tag can get you a discounted "House of the Dead 2" and third-party lightgun for your Dreamcast.
  6. 40
    To be blunt, the game just isn't fun without the gun.
  7. The translation is nearly arcade perfect. The only thing missing is a full-sized sniper rifle, which ends up making a big difference.
