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. However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack. Therefore co-operation is necessary for I.R.I.S. if they wish to prevail (if they dont want to become the prey/victim themselves). This leads to an outstanding gaming experience on public servers:...

The Hidden Source - Source Remake of the Original The Hidden for Half Life has one awesome concept, that it does not fail to deliver.

One team of "I.R.I.S", armed to the teeth with High-Tech equipment must chase down an escaped Test Subject whose only weapon is a knife.
Only issue to this situation, the Test Subject is invisible.

However he is not 100% invisible, he leaves a refraction aura, similar to Predator, and in addition to that he can leap great distances and stick to walls.

This recipe, makes the game very versatile, it is never clear who is the hunter and who is the prey, and everything can change in a split second, for the "Hidden" is quick.

The last version released was a Beta, which still contains minor bugs and glitches, unfortunately those bugs and glitches DO affect gameplay, and while I would not call them game breaking, they can still ruin some rounds.

Great concept, great mod, needs polishing but still very enjoyable.

This mod is great.

The weapons are fairly balanced, and theres a decent variety to choose from.

The hidden (since he's almost entirely invisible) adds so much suspense it's crazy. - He will be standing above you on the ledge and you won't even see him, and the last thing you'll hear is "Look... up..." in a haunting whisper. You do, firing, and realize that he's moved from the ledge and standing right in front of you.

You'll also be walking around searching for him to take him down, and find the teammate that was walking down the hall 30 seconds ago (dangling from the roof pinned there like a decoration) - courtesy of the hidden.

I suggest the mod to anyone wanting to try something new, or someone looking for a suspenseful FPS game. It rightfully deserves a 10/10 rating.

Now, the only thing scarier than “Subject 617” in this game, has to be if it were Michael Jackson. I mean, this game is pretty frickin creepy, and extremely exciting.

This is Hidden, an ridiculously intense horror/deathmatch half life 2 mod developed by Ging. First released on October 1st 2007. This was a highly anticipated mod for its day, which won 2 mod of the year awards from 2006, It won editors Choice and Players Choice, now that’s impressive.

There are still people who play this mod, and its surprising, being the last release was in 2007 and the mod is no longer being developed. This game has a huge replayability rate. Along with fun factor. Half of the time I played, i was laughing, and the people who I played with were also funny as hell.

This mod is outrageously fun, and it’s a shame it’s no longer in development, as fun as it is, it could use some more weapons, but overall, its really impressive for being 3 years old.

Graphics: Outdated
Concept: Try to kill a invisible man, or try to kill the S.W.A.T. like team.
Game play: Everything is great, but I wish there was a healing system.
Playability: High
Summary: This game is **** tons fun. I strongly suggest this to you. This was the first mod I ever played

The Hidden is a competitive multiplayer game that has a squad of highly armed soldiers searching for one stealthy opponent. When you find a proper match to play in, the feeling is like no other. As a soldier, you're always on your toes, keeping a close eye, straining to see the silhouette of the Hidden assassin and watch your back as well as your teammates. It's a game that requires close-knit co-operation and coordination. As the Hidden, you pick the moments of weakness as the squads move around and hunt them down. It's amazing.

This is one of the first (and best) mods i've ever played. The gameplay is simply different from most of the games/mods we see today. The mod is intrigating and when playing it you feel as you were inside the game.

I played this 2 years ago, when people still played this game, but now I see that it's kinda dead, people don't care anymore to old mods like this, if I was supposed to give a con on this review, this would be the only thing that I can say about it. The game has even a tutorial level for explaining how to play as the subject guy.

Totally deserves this rating.
