Anybody playing/played the new hitman?
I had it on pre-order months ago, so was playing the sniper challenge alot.
Just completed the game in about 35 hours. (I'm a perfectionist, so re-played a lot of bits to get them just right!)
Thought I would post my thoughts:
Overall, the game is excellent. The controls are great and the way you interact with the world is easy and fluid.
The graphics are great. On my ageing hardware I can only run it at Medium @ 1920x1200 and it still looks stunning. at this setting I hit about 50-60 FPS most of the time so it plays well.
For anybody who likes games which require a bit of thought I highly recommend it.
A quick summary of my likes/dislikes:
+The level design
+The main story is detailed and long. I am use to games taking less than 10 hours to complete. Its taken me 35 and thats just the first play through. Lots more things to unlock and differnt ways to play each level! Looking forward to it already
-The checkpoint system is crap. If you sneek around and dont kill/subdue people its fine. If you like to clean up this dosent work. Every time you load back everyone is alive and well.
-The weapon upgrade system. Unlike in Blood money, you can only have 3 attachments per weapon. It is also not possible to upgrade weapons during the story. I miss my scoped / silenced / full auto / laser sighted / amour piercing Silver ballas. The best you get in the story is silencer
What are your thoughts etc?
