Game: Dark Silhouette: Silent Scope 2
Manufacturer: Konami
Year: 2000
Type: horizontal color raster upright

Dark Silhouette: Silent Scope 2 was the sequel to Konami's smash hit Silent Scope. Since both games can be played out of the same cabinet, I didn't really care which game I picked up. I used to play this game a lot when it first came out, and it's one of those games that really requires its own dedicated cabinet to enjoy (sorry MAME).

In the game, you play a sniper who is constantly being being assigned missions (ie who to shoot next). The controller is a large sniper rifle, but the scope contains a small LCD screen to give you the feeling of actually magnifying what is on the much larger screen. Take aim and take out the bad guys!

I bought the original Silent Scope boardset as well and have them both hooked up. I can switch between the two games with the flick of a switch.
