Very hard compared to Absolution

Just started playing Silent Assassin on Professional. I barely managed to beat the first two missions. How are you supposed to kill the Don in Mission 1 and the General in Mission 2 w/o being detected?

I've also completed Blood Money but that was way easier than this. Luckily you only need to get 5 Silent Assassins on Professional for the achievement but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get 1.

Yeah, this game is kicking my arse right now. Waaaaay tougher than Absolution! So much hand holding going on in the new game compared to this! I played Absolution first, then Silent Assassin, the difference in how the game plays is astounding. But saying that, everytime I've messed up, it's always been my fault and I've gone straight back in and had another bash.

I take it you guys never played this when it first came out? You've only played Blood Money or Absolution? SA was no walk in the park when I played it, I remember always getting caught or having to redo something because I died or screwed up. You can do it, just be careful.

In my opinion I loved original series it is great. Absolution is my favourite best Hitman series ever made. Not because new gameplay that never seen before for Hitman but story is great to follow, better control for Hitman game and Contracts mode is fun in it. Cannot wait for Hitman 6 so much. I knew it will happen one day as Asbolution is very well sales so surely Hitman Collection will boosting Square Enix sales then they will bring on Hitman 6 in near future.

I agreed original series of Hitman is more challenge difficulty to complete when going for stealth silent.

You need to have a lot of patience in the old Hitman games. If you're going for Silent Assassin ratings then you will need to study the map a lot. Find out where the guards patrol and shit like that. If you're new to them then I would recommend following some of the walkthroughs that are posted on YouTube.

Not just that, but 'REAL' games in general. A lot of video games these days are a walk in the park compared to a game of the same genre in the 90s and/or early 00s.

I knew what I was getting into, as I played through these games multiple times back in the day. Still own all of my old copies.

These games are all about patience and studying the enemies and maps.

I've gotten 3 Silent Assassins so far and I'm up to Mission 8. I should be able to get the rest by the end I hope.

WTF is this!? Did the first mission on PRO and got a SILENT ASSASSIN RATING although the guy I knocked out woke up, raised the alarm & shot at me. Gotta luv this game!!! Just like old times.

I played this on the PS2 and I remember it was very difficult then. It took me a long time to get used to the "side-stepping", for one. I couldn't figure out how to sneak (bought a used copy, no instructions), and for a long time couldn't do anything without raising suspicions.

Replaying this now, it's as hard as I know it'd be. There are shocks at every turn. People you've drugged earlier waking up is the most annoying thing so far.

SA was always my favourite... Absolution and blood money always felt too easy even on hardest difficulties... This is classic 47... Hardcore

before I played the HD collection myself I almost wanted to reply to this thread and say "you babies, I'm a Hitman master, lol!1"

having played them day 1, back on the PC I must admit: these games are quite challenging indeed. it's hard to get back into.

the AI doesn't work as you expect them to, sometimes can see through walls.
people/targets walk around on a loop but sometimes another guy also unexpectly enters the loop and messes up my kill.
walking and sneaking is slooooow, making it nearly impossible to fibre wire/knock out someone.

for the first few levels in H2:SA my experience is save-load-load-load-load-load-save-load-load etc. and it's annnoying.

I'm doing professional on my first run on SA, so there's no way to save (unless the game throws you a save point midway into the session).

I'm doing Hidden Valley now and I had to stop playing in case I get hospitalised for high blood pressure.

Managed to get SA rating for every mission prior to this on Pro. Multiple (and I mean, multiple multiples) attempts each time.

SA and Contracts are much harder than BM and Absolution. I actually took an 8 month break from SA because I couldn't beat the final mission on Pro.

Blood money and Absolution were nothing. You kids needed to be around for hitman silent assassin on the original xbox. that is when i played it originally. that is what makes this game so great as well as contracts. much tougher.

yep. no saves on pro. you must do complete runthrough, with no breaks to get SA rating. This game was awesome.

hitman codename 47 was ok but it was only on PC. That was the very first game.
