Based on the elite squad-based Special Air Service (SAS) that had its beginning near the start of World War II, Hidden & Dangerous focuses on units designed to infiltrate enemy positions, carry out special assignments, and conduct specialized operations. The units weren't all of a single purpose but were grouped by area of expertise, whether it was an interrogation unit, a special boat force, or some other requirement that needed special attention.
Gameplay revolves around six distinct campaigns, each divided into individual missions. Play is somewhat linear (with exceptions) in that most missions must be successfully completed before the next can begin and, correspondingly, all missions of a campaign must be completed before advancement to the next can occur. Each mission can require a team of up to four commandos, chosen from an international field, each with individual attributes, abilities, and specialties.
Hidden & Dangerous contains a number of missions, all with changeable weather patterns (rain, snow, and fog), varying objectives, and real-time movement through diverse terrain and locations. The world of Hidden & Dangerous is not stagnant, as objects within the environment move and react causing active strategic and tactical planning.
The game comes with a wide-ranging arsenal of WWII equipment, weapons, vehicles, and objects, from communication devices to camouflage uniforms, explosives, and sniper rifles. Hidden & Dangerous tracks a player's specific "profile" from the beginning of the game, updating and assigning scores for each mission, with the resultant ratings impacting on future missions. ~ Michael L.
