More of a good thing...made better.
Pros: Very enjoyable game.
Cons: Graphics showing their age on current gen systems.
Other Thoughts: However, this generation of systems are showing their age. Still a pretty game, but I cant wait to see the next gen graphics in a hitman game. The sound is good as usual. Good voice acting and an appropriate score to fit the scenes. The story, so far, has been intriguing. I'm curious as to where it will lead me from scene to scene (or more appropriately, hit to hit lol) and it keeps me wanting to play more every time I turn it on. The gameplay controls are the nearly the same as past hitman games. Which is a good thing. Its familiar and easy to pick back up on. As always, its fun to see if you can accomplish the different ways to finish a hit. So there is great replay value there. The more creative you are in your hit, the more points you rack up. Points mean more this time around. Every time you finish a mission, youll get an overall score based on your skill and creativity, which is then compared to friends who play, the overall leader board, and even the world per country. They have also implemented a "contracts mode" which I havent delved in to yet. But just do a search on it to see details. Its basically a challenge mode. It seems that players can create their own hit missions as well. Even more replay value! All in all, if you love hitman, or just love strategy assassinations lol, youll need to add this to your collection! Oh, and as of December 12th, 2012, its on sale on newegg for just 40$! Im not sure how permanent this price is, but its an AMAZING price for this game! Grab it asap!
