H&D in CGW

Unread post by Mille » Sat Nov 28, 2020 4:39 pm

So I was looking around today and yesterday and I found some Hidden & Dangerous content in old gaming magazines. I'll continue looking for more and post here, but for now this is what I have.
I understand many of you probably know about this but I'm here to share nonetheless.

But the most rarest thing is that we have never actually seen a demo of h&d classic/original

I also found this, Petr Vozochka shows off H&D gameplay, I'm guessing this is a demo. Here he also speaks about Mafia, but that's only what I got from the description, since I don't speak Czech and cannot translate the video.

I understood a bit, since Czech language is similar to Polish. Not the same however.

In general Petr Vochozka talked about planned release date for H&D 1 and that the Mafia game would be something like GTA. He informed that H&D 1 would be published by Take 2 Interactive. He also mentioned something about Pterodon - maybe Vietcong game plans?

The video covered few H&D 1 missions like Italy 1, Italy 4 and Norway 3. I doubt, that it showed the demo. More likely an alpha version.

bullshit. There is a demo and it has also a few differences to the original game. Like different weapons sprays, you can't hit somebody with a MG who is more than 100 meters away.

If the demo is gone i can reupload it.

Also, should I make a new post for other magazines or just repost to here? I've found an article from PC-Zone. I love looking at these in all honesty.

I think that you could create a new topic here: viewforum.php?f=13

That forum section mentioned above is about the classic Hidden & Dangerous and its expansion Fight for Freedom / Devil's Bridge.

Just rename the topic to something more general like "Classic H&D and FFF/DB in old PC magazines", etc.

So here you go guys. It includes also the trailer. The trailer shows some differences between the beta and the release, it has also a nice soundtrack.

My favourite line from that magazine is: "Blow the bridge...or blow the mission"!

Should be instead: "Blow the bridge...or get run over by train"! (Italy 1 mission reference) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
