The Adrenaline Vault by Chris
"My first exposure to Illusion Softworks' Hidden &
Dangerous came at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. Amongst all the
glitter, loud music and hormonally imbalanced Lara Croft fans, Hidden &
Dangerous shone brighter than the rest as a rare diamond in the rough, and I
knew that, given enough time and care, it could turn out to be not only the
best tactical combat title we've seen to date, but perhaps one of the best
games of all time."
"...and for the purpose of the review, I've gone
back and played key areas a few more times. I've also, as is standard protocol,
engaged my cohorts here at AVault as well as a few other industry insiders
regarding their thoughts on Hidden & Dangerous; specifically, how it
measures up against such games as Spec Ops, Rainbow Six, Commandos and Delta
Force. The truth is, the end result and innovations are better than all these
combined, expanding ten-fold beyond the idea of Spec Ops, redefining the
ultra-realistic mission design so eloquently introduced in Rainbow Six, taking
the atmosphere of war to the Nth degree over Delta Force, and finally giving us
the title we all envisioned when we first played Commandos.. This is Hidden
"It's difficult to summarize the Hidden & Dangerous
experience, mainly because it transcends the normal impact of gaming. While I'm
sure there will be those who disagree with me, I cannot state anything other
than the facts. Despite a few minor flaws in mechanics and a lingering bug or
two, Hidden & Dangerous is one of the best games ever created, and playing
it an experience I shall always treasure."
