Clandestine is an indie stealth/hacking game with great co-op elements. In fact, that is the biggest draw for this game. The single player mode is fun, but Clandestine excels at the co-op game play. The hacker and the stealthy spy working together is what this game is all about. These two complement each other so much that it can feel like you are right in a spy thriller at times. Thus, it is perfect for laying with a friend if you each choose the role you are most comfortable with. For example, I would be more at home stealthiness and taking down guards than the hacking aspect. However, it still would be fun to try the hacker side once for the team. Find a way to use voice and the team can work even better together.

As far as flaws go, Clandestine definitely has its fair share. To start, the graphics are definitely below average. However, the deep game play makes up for this quite nicely. What it doesn’t make up for is the weird controls and the bugs. As can be seen in the video below, the video crashed a few times. This can get quite annoying especially when two people need to keep the game running at the same time. Also, the game retailing for $24.99 each is not ideal when it is mainly focused on co-op. Clandestine is one game that would be packaged the best as a 2 pack instead of just individually. That would be the best way for this unpolished co-op gem to truly shine.

  1. Game has great story and is fun to play with few friends and have some fun together, on the other hand it feels extremely clunky to play and actual game mechanics are really weird and unusual. 3/5 from NeSsQQuiCk

  2. This game is meant to only be played with a second player on another computer.
    This game is a thrilling game to see what it’s like to play as the spy and the hacker in movies. It’s a fun game, the mechanics, lip syncing and animation throws me off, but this is still a great game to play with you and a friend together.

  3. Pretty average game. It’s quite fun with another player. The game play is pretty good and the graphics are okay but the mechanics are not the best. The story line is also fairly average. Overall the game is okay as long as you are with a good friend. I rate it 3/5.

  4. 3/5 – Clandestine is a hack and slash game that looks like a mix of the early Tomb Raider games and Uncharted as far as graphics and camera angle goes. This game has aged well cause there’s not many asymetric co-op games out there.
