In "The Hidden", players choose the role of either a near invisible killer, Subject 617, or one member of an Intercept squad who have to capture him, I.R.I.S. In the simple but challenging gameplay of an 'one against all'? mode, Subject 617 creeps/sneaks through the maps armed only with a knife and three pipe bombs. The IRIS team carry a selection of weaponry, fully customisable at round start, from F2000 assault rifles through to shotguns or sub machine guns as well as a pistol as a secondary weapon.

While they do make a couple of mistakes, such as stating that we're based on CS:S and that you need CS:S to run the mod (you only need HL2). It's a generally good description of the mod, sadly, it seems we the team got screenshots to them too late for inclusion, so they've made their own, but it's better than nothing!
