From uk.playstation.com:
    What do you do when your city is positively swarming with armed terrorists, armed threats are a daily occurrence and the President and his family are being held hostage? You might feel tempted to call in a 50-man SWAT team, but ever heard that expression "too many cooks"? Sometimes it's better to rely on one man, a sniper rifle and a box full of bullets.

    If you're not daunted by this task, rise to the challenge and take on the role of the Silent Scope sharpshooter. From rooftops to bridges, no man can escape your beady eye and steady hand. But not only are you against an unknown quantity of armed and extremely dangerous reprobates, but you're also running against the clock. High tension combine with fast paced action in this addictive thriller.
