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.
Visual clues in the environment, item descriptions, item placements in the world and so forth. A lot of it is only hinted at as well, leaving the community to puzzle things together :) (2 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: The plot of Dark Souls is very simple and straight forward. The lore however, is pretty cool. And it's told with the game, not exposition. (2 Hours ago)
The developer of Lords responds to early previews with new footage [url] (4 Hours ago)
@Megido: Yeah, i wish MS would finally put it on the Marketplace for preload. Goddamn. Maybe this won't become available as preload, then i'll simply have to download it on release day. (5 Hours ago)
Yeah but i dont get one thing. Dark Souls for me barely had a story at all....but ENB seems to think otherwise. I barely recall any story elements in DS. (5 Hours ago)
But it's gonna be interesting to play it next week. Looking forward to it. (5 Hours ago)
