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.

$20 isn't much to spend for a night's entertainment, but there are much better games of this type for about the same price. Skip it.

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.

Hidden Agenda is a hard recommendation, because the game feels like a natural fit to share with non-gamers, but we had one playthrough that ended so abruptly and unsatisfyingly I thought we had somehow skipped a section, and had I brought this game out at a party I would have felt like we totally wasted two hours.

With a huge web of choices to make and an enjoyable competitive mode to boot, there's a lot to like in this crime analysis. Hidden Agenda proves that the PlayLink initiative can be taken advantage of in more than just casual party games, but this particular outing doesn't quite realise its full potential. This investigation is absolutely one worth experiencing, but one too many caveats with the app itself holds things back from greatness.

However, someone may not like the primitive gameplay, and the price for a two-hour movie may seem quite high.

Hidden Agenda is a great concept with some impressive set pieces and performances, but its narrative lets it down and it lacks any major impact.

Hidden Agenda is a nice thriller to play, thats lacks some fine tuning in terms of Story and mechanics.

As a game for chilling out on the sofa with a handful of friends or the family, Hidden Agenda is pretty cool. Yet there's a lot about the mechanics, the story, the situations and the characters that seems wilfully, crazily dumb. For £20 for a few hours of fun it's well worth a try, but this feels like an interesting concept that needs some work before it all comes good.

It's clear that Hidden Agenda has an interesting concept. But this interactive thriller playable with your phone doesn't really fit with the idea of a party game and sometimes feels a bit rushed in terchnical terms and not really memorable.

If you love choose-your-own-adventure games, Hidden Agenda is compelling enough to make for an evening's entertainment, especially given its price – but it feels more a glimpse of what could be enabled by mobile-connected games in the future, than a showcase of them at the moment.

Hidden Agenda has all the trappings of a Supermassive game, but its potential is cut short as Crime Thriller: The Party Game. Stiff animations give the impression that Hidden Agenda was rushed. While the PlayLink technology has potential and does some really cool things by turning your phone into a controller, it also adds unnecessary complications to a game that uses the second screen functionality as more of a gimmick than a core gameplay mechanic. Hidden Agenda is a good game, but is held back from being great by trying to fit it into the party game mold.
