To the people that say the new Hitman game is not for true Hitman fans...

Because it doesn't look stealthy or whatever, have you even played Hitman Codename 47 aka Hitman 1? Half the game was running and gunning. There was an entire jungle chapter devoted to it and the last level was you running around with a minigun destroying everything.

Basically if you say the new Hitman game isn't a real part of the series, you're an idiot.

You could have used stealth in those jungle missions, just so you know

Yeah you could use stealth through that whole game, even the Lee Hong assassination which was pretty damn hard

I don't really care what anyone else says about this game, I think it looks excellent and that's that.

I third. I haven't played any of the other Hitman games, but I am loving what I see so far for Absolution. I don't think there's enough stealth games in the market so I am extremely looking forward to this.

Splinter Cell was stealthy but look where that's gone.

Are you still judging the game from its preview at E3 in 2011 ? Because it has changed quite a lot from then. Actually the game looks just like Hitman and on top of that they are adding many more features. But don't be disappointed if it's because they don't have the same voice actors (like we hear them a lot). Jesper Kyd not being apart of Hitman sucks but I'm sure they will still have great music for the game.

Well just my two cents, hopefully you enjoy the game more when you finally play it!

I'm on the fourth mission, it's fun, not easy as I want to avoid being caught - turning red and start shooting me - I restart or load my last save. It's lot of trial and error finding the best way, it's a very different stealth game to what I have played before.

I thought Blood Money was excellent Probably one of the greatest (possible) endings in gaming history.

Wow. You're being the idiot here.
Hitman 1 could be completed with stealth. and yes it was sometimes nearly impossible.

That said, I don't see the first game to be a full worthy Hitman game. More like a beta that got released. there were so many glitches and control problems. The following 3 games define the series and work out the kinks from the first game.

Hardcore fans and people that worry about Absolution going the way of Conviction (Splinter Cell debacle) have a point. It may be dumbed down and less creative but we don't know yet.
If this would happen it would have nothing to do with Hitman 1 which layed the ground for the next games.

It was the first game, so of course, it wasn't perfect.

Half the game was crappy yeah, that why they only did a remake of half the missions in Contracts (only the good ones).

I don't ever think the "Convition-like" is a problem. The problem of Absolution is the "free-roam" missions are very rare, and that's what make a Hitman game. If every mission was like "The King of Chinatown" or "Shaving Lenny", I would say the game would be near perfect.

But too bad, 90% of the missions are "go from point A to point B" or "escape the cops".

I think the crappiest part of the game is the helicopter gunmachine scene, but still, if all the levels were free-roam, I could live with that crappy scene.
