Hidden Agenda Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Hidden Agenda does show the potential for the PlayLink system, but a lacklustre, generic and brief story along with limited mechanics doesn't elevate it further than an interesting idea

Supermassive's dour whodunnit is a poor vehicle for PlayLink's experiment in multiplayer narrative - a woeful mismatch of genre and form.

Hidden Agenda doesn't live up to Supermassive's interactive take on the teen slasher genre, but still weaves a suspenseful mystery worth more than one playthrough

Hidden Agenda shows the success of PlayLink. A game developed by Supermassive Games that gathers the best of Until Dawn with a dark story with some funny moments. Great to play with family and friends, since it can have 6 simultaneous players.

There's some good ideas in how PlayLink can be used to let a group of players (and non-gamers in particular) join together and shape a filmic story, but the actual interface feels clumsy, and the story and scripting leaves plenty to be desired. It's safe to say that Hidden Agenda is an obvious disappointment.

Hidden Agenda is an innovative experience that opens up new possibilities in the world of interactive adventures. The title of SuperMassive Games proposes us live a party of crime with friends and influence all together in the history. It is not perfect, but it is a great alternative for entertainment.

A movie dressed like a videogame that fails to retain your attention once you have completed it... And it only lasts for two hours.

It's doing something different as part of Play Link, and there is no better studio to do a crime story using this service, even though some of the gameplay elements are a bit dull.

Hidden Agenda is like stepping into a crime drama and influencing how it plays out. The branching narrative is a welcoming aspect and makes me want to play it multiple times. It's fun to play alone, but taking it on with friends is a treat all on it's own.
