Hidden & Dangerous takes place during WWII. Your an elite team of commandos
that takes on specialty jobs deep in German occupied territory.
To give you an idea, your first mission (each mission is sub-divided into 4 smaller
missions) is to locate, and rescue a shot down bomber crew. On your first sub-mission
your job is to cross a railroad bridge heavily guarded on both sides, and meet with
your escort down river.
The view is either behind the person, or 3rd person. (Out of their eyes)
Pretty standard 3DFx, but I was dissapointed that at a distance it's very
hard to make anything out. A really big dissapointment was that the scope on the sniper
rifles, and the binoculars doesn't zoom at all. Sometimes the only way to tell where
an enemy soldier is standing is to follow the tracer rounds back to him, but by the
time you do that, your usually dead.
This is fairly easy keyboard/mouse controls, and if you have
played any first person type games (Doom/Quake, etc.) then your pretty much set. Sound is pretty standard for a shoot-em-up.
Overall the game is pretty sweet, with the exceptions noted above. The game draws
you into the action right away, and never lets up.
