Summary: If you liked H&D 1, you will like this even better. The graphics are some what better than the earlier version. There are a lot more scenic missions to complete. However, the challenge is a little bit less compared to the previous version probably because the helping soldiers are a little smarter in...
Summary: This game rocks. As far as gameplay, it is as good as it gets. My only gripe is all the patches, and that if one doesn't have the same patch upgrade, their may be issues on connecting to some of the servers.
Summary: all the morons saying this game is unstable are clearly ignorant. Two things you need to keep updated ya bunch of idiots. 1) The game like all other games has bugs, so you need to update it with the autopatcher it comes with. Simple huh? End of problem.
Summary: If it weren't for the quirky squad AI, this would be a five-star game yet I highly recommend it in smite of that. This game is a classic in my book. It's better to play this on Lone Wolf campaigns. The squad AI is too annoying for me.
Summary: The only thing better about HD2 compared to the original gem is the wholescale destruction of game crashing bugs. Yep, HD2, out of the box, has been crash proof for me. Played over the weekend, finishing it, and not once was I booted to windows or had any significant bugs.
Summary: This game is hard. You will die many times and have to keep playing the same level. That said, the game is incredibly addictive, has some of the best ambient noise around and the use of motion capture makes the soldiers move like real soldiers.
Hidden and Dangerous 2 - Hard time being a war hero.
30 November 2010
Excerpt: Sometimes listening to friends about hard games might finish badly like it did to me, I could not believe that this game might be so hard and interesting. Call of Duty, Medal of honor are not so interesting as this one.
Excerpt: Despite this being listed in the strategy section of the forum, it's largely an action game. You have various troop classes such as grunt, spy, sniper, medic etc. There is also a slight RPG feel to the game as there are roughly seven stats however when it comes to weapons unlike other games which...
Pros: Graphics, sound and gameplay are poor in comparison to newer games in this genre
Cons: It's a half decent game if you can get it for less than £5, otherwise go newer
Excerpt: Hidden & Dangerous 2 (HD2) puts you in command of a squad of elite SAS troops during WWII. Released back in 1999, the original Hidden & Dangerous showed lots of promise, but was ultimately let down by a convoluted interface and a mass of show-stopping bugs.
Pros: Sophisticated squad management system . Streamlined interface . Historical authenticity . Razor - sharp 3D visuals .
