"Epicness"?

pre-order cancelled.

They wanted to "keep the epicness from the past installments" i.e. Jesper Kyd.
He stated in an interview he was never approached about the soundtrack of the game. No sale from me either I'm afraid. It is a very important aspect for me I'm afraid. Putting more bells and whistles on the game doesn't make me want it more. I still prefer Contracts over Blood Money any day.

I don't. Contracts only had a few new missions and several remakes, that was highly unnessecary. Blood Money had nothing but new missions. But i understand, you mean it from a audio perspective. Still i believe the music will be great, the voice acting and atmospheric sounds as well.

Blood money had the accidental deaths, which where awesome. But the missions and their difficulty was MUCH better in contracts/H1/H2. I'd be happy if this game fell somewhere in between.

I'm only slightly concerned about what (i believe) CVG said, that the maps were a bit small. Hitman is not known for its small maps, well some would call Blood Money's maps small, but i don't. But thats my only concern, cause the other concern was the Instincts mode, but that stuff can be disabled and the game still plays perfect. Judging by my play session and several articles.

Dont know about the music, I will have to play one or two levels to be able to say if I like it or not, but sounds are great.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (9 Hours ago)
