Summary: I bought this game because it was a blast to play when i owned it (i lost it 3 years ago.) if you are one that only loves shooters like call of duty in which there is a set path and it is all run and gun, do not buy this game. if you want a tactical experience in which you need to plan your moves and actions, set up assualts and ambushes, and get a feel for what war is realy like, look no further.
Good game, good interface and gameplay but a few bugs
6 June 2006
Summary: This is a good game with better graphics and animation than the first H&D. Some of the scenes like the one inside the submarine for example, are very good and so are the scenes inside buildings, etc. The interface is good once you're used to it (having the cheat codes help). My only gripe is that there are a few bugs. For example when your team mates (bots) are crawling together, they get tangled up and one even ends up hitching a lift on the other soldier's back!
Summary: Ever since I bought Hidden & Dangerous 2, I've used it as a measuring tool against other World War II shooters. And it rates better than most I've seen yet. The graphics are very well-done, with well-done uniforms, weapons, blood, and effects. With most missions in "open" 3d environments (as compared to exteremely linear games, such as EA's Medal of Honor), H&D 2 allows you room to maneouver your squad to flank the enemy, if that's your strategy.
Summary: Bar none, the best WWII shooter released in recent memory. It's such a shame that all the slack jawed droolers who demand instant action and zero thought from a game will avoid this and play the inferior Call of Duty.
Summary: The squad mate AI is still a bit wonky and the co-op multiplay doesn't let you go back to the original H&D 2 maps, but it's still the best WWII shooter out there. Makes Call of Duty look like the pathetic scripted rail shooter that it is.
