360 Magazine: Hitman Aboslution may look impressive, but has IO Interactive been watching too many films during development of its latest adventure or Agent 47?
Ahhh. Blood Money was brilliant. I didn't play it.
I've seen the downloabable 10 min gameplay vid (PSN) and i've got to say it looks good.
Stealth!! Thats all that is needed to make this game good. SC Conviction made me sad because of the short length and action focus. Hitman Blood Money on the other hand is still one of my favourite 360 games. I regret trading it away.
It looks really good to me.
No. This will be the best hitman game yet. Stealth games need a reminder of what makes them good. Fiber wire is a step in the right direction.
Looks great and here's hoping they did change up stuff from prior games. I could barely get 30 minutes into them before giving up. Blood Money was the only one I enjoyed despite only making as far as the second mission.
It's not the series for you then, if you could barely play them. Don't ruin it for the rest of us by convincing the devs to dumb it down for the casuals. Which is what they're doing.
Why would they be going in the wrong direction? You saw one level in the game that is more or less linear. The game might have a mix of linear and non-linear levels.
Does no one remember the first mission Blood Money? It was linear, if the mission we saw happens to be the first mission of the game, then there is a good chance it's just as blood money, a tutorial approach.
I think IO really messed up here, if the game really is a mix of linear and classic open levels then there is a good chance that the game will feel disjointed and uneven, blood money is one of my top 5 games of all time so of course i want this to be good but i just don't see it yet.
There are almost no stealth games anymore other than MGS and Splinter Cell. Ubisoft screwed up Splinter Cell with Conviction and I'm hoping IO don't do the same here!
I want Kane & Lynch 3 after this. Kane & Lynch 2 was a gritty, realistic masterpiece and highly underrated. One thing I hope is that 3 is longer than 2.
