Many people have been criticizing the latest installment in the Hitman franchise for different reasons, so they were probably very impatient to get their hands on Hitman HD Trilogy, the collection regrouping Hitman 2, Hitman Contracts, Hitman Blood Money and a code to download the Hitman Sniper Challenge of Absolution. We have captured a few videos of the PS3 version, so get ready to go back in time.
Some things are usually better left in the past. Hitman 2 and Hitman Contracts may have been very good games, but they have aged, not only technically, but also gameplay-wise. Those of you complaining about the disguise system are in for a big surprise when they get shot without even knowing why, even though Agent 47's face is completely hidden under a hood. Disguise yourself as a bodyguard in the Italian mansion of the second episode, and you'll be spotted the minute you walk past another guard. It might make sense that they all recognize each other but as there is no feedback, you're basically left crossing your fingers hoping your cover will hold.
Gameplay has gotten very awkward, especially the clunky controls of Hitman 2, so we doubt many will have the patience to endure the many failed attempts you are bound to experience. The Hitman series has always been more a puzzle game than anything else, so patience has always been part of the fun. But a decade later, we must say we grew tired quite rapidly. There is however tons of content here, with a total of 40 missions, many of which are quite memorable. The presence of Blood Money can also justify a purchase if you are a PS3 owner, since the game was never released in HD before.

@bleachedsmiles: I bought two of them, and have the other in my charging dock at all times, not an issue for me. It sucks for people w/ 1 controller tho (27 minutes ago)
@scoobs0688: What about the TERRIBLE battery life of the DS4? that's my complaint. I spend half my time charging it (36 minutes ago)
The 360 pad has a garbage d-pad. If you don't use digital inputs it's pretty good.. but the analogs are also kinda loose and have big built in deadzones too. I dunno.. not perfect! (43 minutes ago)
I like the xb1 controller, but not necessarily better than 360's controller, which I thought was perfect. DS4 is great, no complaints there either (44 minutes ago)
@Megido: so you play games at work? :P (1 Hour ago)
