Google Street View has been transformed into a distinctly ghoulish first person shooter by a Dutch ad firm.

As reported by VentureBeat, Google Shoot View, the brainchild of Pool Worldwide, lets you roam the streets of your hometown blasting away at passers-by with an M4A1 assault rifle.

Pool hasn't figured out a way to make people actually keel over on-screen when shot at, but it's the thought that counts, right?

Pool's website currently seems to be out of action, so you'll have to make do with the Battlefield 3-aping trailer below for the time being.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
