North America Retail Box ArtConfidential Mission is the first Dreamcast game since House of the Dead 2 to utilise the light-gun peripheral. But at least it has been worth the wait. And a fantastic excuse it is too to get down to some serious blasting. Ported direct from the arcade machine, the game places you in the shoes of agents desperate to retrieve a satellite-controlling device from a shady corporation. This is all an excuse for full-on blasting action, of course, with plenty of little twists to keep you interested along the way. And, should you have a second light gun, the two-player mode is simply sublime. Despite the game featuring only three missions in total, to get to the end you need fast reactions, nerves of steel and the perseverance to get past some ruthless end-of-level baddies. Yet it's worth it. For Confidential Mission is not only one of the best light-gun games on any console, it's also the latest slice of arcade gaming heaven to hit the Dreamcast and a further example as to why Sega's machine will be so missed when it finally goes off sale. For now though, strap yourself in and experience the arcade-game specialists in mighty fine form. --Simon Brew
