Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe
It feels like only yesterday (although it was, in fact, last century) that H&D was feted as a minor masterpiece, zinging out of darkest Hungary and setting the mould for the hyper-realism of wargames like Medal of Honor. Yes, it may have needed more patches than a Beagle recently escaped from a tobacco testing centre, but it somehow felt grittier and more realistic than previous shooters.
Part of this was down to the weaponry, carefully modelled on real-world guns and setting the tone for today's near-fetishistic levels of historical accuracy. Superior Al and huge missions with primary and secondary objectives completed an impressive debut for developer Talonsoft. although this turned out to be only half the story, thanks to a long and often hilarious list of bugs. Enemies got caught inside doorways, fallen comrades started levitating and texture-clipping problems returned years after we all assumed they were gone forever. Still, after H&D it became easier for the likes of Call Of Duty and Brothers In Arms to be taken seriously. The Deluxe pack has the original game and the Fight For Freedom expansion.
