  1. The game looks good and feels convincing, and although it's unstable and flawed and otherwise every bit as difficult as you would expect, Hidden & Dangerous is nonetheless an impressive and uniquely serious depiction of squad-level combat behind enemy lines.
  2. There's nothing remarkably groundbreaking, but it is a good game overall. One problem however is that this game is replete with glitches.
  3. Unfortunately, all of this is marred by a buggy game (even after the v1.1 update) and incredibly stupid computer AI (which controls your teammates).
  4. When the missions remain outdoors, Hidden & Dangerous stays fun. It's when you have to go into houses that it begins to fall apart.

Then imitating the voice acting of the briefings at the beginning. Lots of fun and stressing moments. Lots of permadeath if wish and if you were hardcore. Full Review »

Everybody should play this game- especially as the first one is available as a free download. Its fantastically atmospheric with wonderful level design. If it wasn't for those pesky ladders i'd probably vote it my favourite game of all time. Full Review »
