Hidden & Dangerous mixes a staggering combination of non-traditional features, elements of real time strategy, action games and tactical strategies. Plentiful features and stunning true 3D graphics give the game original form and dynamic pace. The story is imaginative, full of reversals and always forces the player to always think ahead.

The Artificial Intelligence in Hidden & Dangerous is extremely realistic. Each character has its own characteristics and logic, can act differently in stressful situations and full of human qualities: vengeance, fear, and malice.... Chance also plays a certain role, ensuring that the same situation is never repeated.
