I have followed the Hitman franchise from the beginning and after playing this I think they should have stopped at Blood Money. You can tell Square had a hand in this because the long cutscenes THAT YOU CAN'T PAUSE XO. They have changed the way the game is played. In this game you have to wear a disguise different than the guard you are trying to slip past to succeed, if you are wearing the same disguise then you have to use some special power boost which is hard to get back. The aiming is very sensitive and jumpy I spent the first hour just trying to calibrate it. I bought the game shortly after it was released and I had to force myself to finish it t just because it was Hitman, after I beat it once I sold it. They added a point system for online leaderboards and that was cool. They have a mode called contracts so you can make your own mission and challenge your friends. That was really fun, nothing like creating a mission your friend can not win and rage quits :D. However, that was not enough to look past this game's obvious sell out. If you love the Hitman franchise you will probably be very disappointed in this game, if you are just now starting to play and don't care about the story timeline, PLAY HITMAN: Bloody Money. I promise you'll see the difference.
Also, I'd like to add there is WAY to MUCH COP KILLING in this game. Every other level I feel like I was trying to evade and killing police officers, after awhile it just felt old and wrong.

Not bad, good controls. Take your time and get used to the controls. Look for other routes. Awesome replay, try all different ways. Hide, and use disguises, take your time, don't let anyone c when u kill someone and hide the bodies. And you can create your own contracts, which you have to do it for it to work. Then you can put it on the web for others to play. And you can play what other ppl have done. Defiantly recommend.
