  1. CNET Gamecenter
    A squad-level shooter that's easier to get into than "Rainbow Six" and tons more fun.
  2. Daily Radar
    The number of missions, weapons and vehicles makes for hours and hours of entertaining and compelling gameplay.
  3. I can see its depth and replayability, but it'll be a cold day in the Florida Peninsual before you see me pick "H&D" for rent anytime soon. It's not my cup of tea.
  4. 60
    It doesn't measure up to "Rainbow Six" for gameplay, and the controls are complex, but Hidden and Dangerous can give you a fun run for the money.
  5. Top-notch. If you waited impatiently for "Rainbow Six" and then were disappointed with the final product, H&D will be a welcome addition.
  6. The grand-duke of the soldier sims. If you have even the slightest interest in the subject matter, it's a must.
  7. Those willing to overlook AI and interface issues (and fans of the "Rainbow Six"-style action games) would do well to check out Hidden and Dangerous.
  8. If you ever wished you could use the Goldeneye sniper rifle in a more realistic context, this is your chance. It's also one of the best action-strategy games available on any system.
  9. This was a good, but glitch-plagued game on the PC, and it may be just a little too complex for an easy transition to a console.
  10. 62
    The only thing that may be "hidden and dangerous" after a session of Talonsoft's latest, is you waiting for your local retailer to give you a refund.
  11. One incredibly lame game. When it isn't busy being ugly or hard to control, it seems to take great joy in killing you without allowing you the chance to first defend yourself.
  12. Sega X
    Now that I've taken the grand tour of this World War II game, I've found myself lost in its world that I will be glad to revisit.
  13. Spank!
    This isn't some crappy product, rather, it's an extremely detailed, in depth shooter cum thinker that simply won't appeal to the pure arcade fan.
  14. Total Video Games
    HD does have some graphical and control issues that do add some frustration to the gameplay, and keep the game form being a solid 9, but they don't stop the game from being fun.

    It has some glitches and sometimes is hard to beat a level so you get mad, but otherwise it is the most action paced WWll game ever.
