Can Silent Scope be played with a mouse?
« on: December 15, 2000, 06:34:34 AM »
I read in the PS2 letters on Daily Radar that you can use a mouse with Silent Scope.  Has anybody here tried this?  If not does anybody own it?  Does the instruction manual mention this?

I rented it from Blockbuster, but my Blockbuster doesn\'t automatically give you the instructions unless you ask (they don\'t fit in the cases).

I haven\'t tried the game, but IGN had a story about it a couple of weeks ago. They said that you could use any USB mouse. It was easiest with a mouse with three buttons though, if I remember correctly. :)
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAPETIME!

I don\'t think that playing it with a game pad is anywhere close to realistic either :)

I wanted to play it with a mouse because that\'s what I\'m used to doing my sniping with in Unreal Tournament on my PC.

Strategy games fine, but not a game where you have to snipe out enemies from quite a long distance. They made the crosshairs on the game hard to control because a ****in rifle is hard to control too IMO.

Yes it can...

BTW, when will Sony lower prices on their MP3 players?

Umm, Matt, you suggested..."I mean using a mouse to shoot enemies, FUN???"  Excuse me, but are you suggesting that all them folks out their fraggin\' their butts off in Half-Life, Quake III, etc., ain\'t having any fun???  So why not let RatBoy assume that he might just have as much fun with using a mouse in Silent Scope?

HELLO! Obviously you havent played Silent Scope, because SS and Quake/Half Life are totally different. They are First Person Shooters. SS is in a genre of its own. Anyway, can we end this ****in\' topic, cuz Silent Scope on home consoles is gay as hell anyway.

You\'re right...
« Reply #14 on: December 16, 2000, 08:17:22 PM »
Yep MattPS2k, you\'re right.  I have not played Silent Scope.  But I have played other light-gun games such as the Time Crises series, Point Blank, etc.  If I didn\'t have a gun available (as is true of Silent Scope), and I were forced to use a "regular" controller, I\'m pretty sure I\'d break that controller in total disgust rather quickly.  So if I\'m to presume that RatBoy asked b/c he\'s into light-gun games, then given the experience I *do* have with using a mouse in FPS\'s such as UT, my assumption was that a mouse would be at least a better avenue of gameplay/control than a controller.  But again, I\'ve never actually played Silent Scope, so perhaps I shoulda kept my trap shut.

PS. Now I\'ll take your advice and "end this ****\'in topic" :D
