No Recommendation / Blank

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

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.
