From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Confidential Mission is a light gun game published by Sega, first available as an arcade game, then ported to the Dreamcast. The game is in the same style as the Virtua Cop series, with support for one or two players. The game was developed by Sega's Hitmaker development team and first released in 2000. Its plot is of the same vein as James Bond, and Mission: Impossible. Despite it also having an arcade release, it never enjoyed the popularity of the Virtua Cop nor the Time Crisis series.
Hitmaker ported this game to the Dreamcast console direct from the arcade. The simplicity of light gun based games ported to consoles allow for a streamlined and fast paced gaming experience because the game only really requires one button: fire. The idea of the mission is to infiltrate enemy headquarters using a combined assortment of weapons and gadgets which differs from the traditional Virtua Cop and Time Crisis games.
Gameplay using a regular Dreamcast controller to move an on-screen cursor is available, however, quick draw shots are extremely hard to master and are crucial to all light gun games.
