You may recall that I had very favorable comments coming out of the closed alpha for this. They are headed back in the right direction and largely responded to the criticisms coming off of Absolution. I have high hopes for this and am looking forward to it.
But that was my first Hitman game too though, so I didn't have Blood Money or any other ones to compare it to at the time.
I have high hopes for this one; looking forward to it it.
I wasn't on the Absolution hate train. I liked it a lot on its own merits but there was some silliness and quibbles in there that I had which are largely eliminated in this new one. This new one is coming a lot closer to where you have the best of both worlds so I see a huge swath of people being happy with it.
I've been thrilled with this game. Episode 3 Marrakesh just hit today. Episode 2 Sapienza really opened some things up and overall this game is finally unseating the Blood Money champ for me. It married the best of Absolution and brought things back to the "use your brain open sandbox" feel of the previous games.
It's also fun to make your own contracts and upload for others to play.
Don't miss this one. Don't let the episodic format turn you off. Each level has so much asinine detail and different ways to do things that you will get more than your money's worth. Throw down for the full game. You won't regret it.
