Hidden & Dangerous 2: Courage Under Fire
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:05:36 AM »
I've heard good things, like this is 'better' than Medal of Honor'. Seems to have lots of tactical scope. Any reports? Thanks.

The entire series was fantastic. That being said, its old and I can't vouch for how it has aged.

Yeah these games were 100% awesome. Unfortunately, they haven't aged well (graphics wise) and they were pretty buggy.

But man - when the story took you along and you got some solid play in, it was atmospheric as hell.

*Edit*
I've just visited the link and those graphics are not that bad given the gameplay you'd get  :notworthy:

Read the GOG reviews, pulled the rigger and played the tutorial. Reminds me a lot of the first Medal of Honor games on the Playstation 1.
I loved those.
I think I'm going to enjoy this a lot.

Somebody should remake this using Arma 3 Iron Front.

Loved this game.Still have my H&D2 box set discs. I might have to pick this up for the sabre squadron expansion.

Enjoy.

Thank you! I am! Once you get past the older graphics style it's fookin' great.

Arma3 remake would be great, in fact looking through the A3 work shop the other day, I came across missions that remake the classic "Vietcong" game from 17 years ago.  It uses the Unsung mod.
