Does anyone remember Hidden & Dangerous? It was a tactical squad-based FPS that was based on SAS missions in WWII.
It was so difficult, it was basically the “Dark Souls” of WWII shooters. One wrong move would trigger the alarm for an entire base and you would die in a hail of bulletfire. None of this “one man army” Call of Duty stuff, you had to think about every move, every kill to complete the mission.
I have fond memories of sitting around a CRT monitor with a couple of my friends, blanket draped over our heads so we could see better in the night missions, knuckles white with tension. Come to think of it, our moms were probably wondering what the hell we were looking at… :lol:
Just remembered I was gonna use the Battleship game subs but didn’t have enough so that’s how I thought of the 84 game.
Nothing wrong with using A&A subs, but if you had your heart set on Battleship subs (that doesn’t sound right), I’m sure you could just order spare parts from E-Bay on the cheap… I can’t imagine there not being thousands of Battleship pieces out there on E-Bay.
Heck, I ordered FOUR different sets of LotR Monopoly pieces off E-Bay to get enough fortresses for my LotR Risk game… so I can only imagine how common Battleship pieces must be.
Hey Djensen, checked back in and noticed this… I use BGG to decide what games I should purchase on my limited gaming budget. The thing that makes the site is the people who contribute loads of feedback on games and what you will enjoy based on your preferences, but like Yanny said, it is one clunky place to navigate. I particularly don’t like the geeklist navigation where it always jumps you back to page top…
Never played this one. Though I do own it because I got it for FREE, and had cool parts.
Same for me (except for the part about getting it for free). I particularly like the standard infantryman, with the raised rifle and pith helmet, whose design fits nicely for possible use as a WWII British or French colonial infantry unit. The size is just right, the detailing is pretty good and there’s a wide range of colours available. The single drawback is the rectangular base, since it contrasts so much with the round bases of the OOB and HBG units.
