"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

    MrWhite Maybe then that'll generate enough awareness for the consumer to know exactly what they are buying into. Experienced gamers should know better. (0 minute ago)

    MrWhite We're on the slippery slope now. Only thing stopping this ride is reviewers growing a set and harshly admonishing these games that have such stuff with a score that reflects the experience. (1 minute ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite If there's one thing EA know, it's taking advantage of stuff that has a fanatic following: sport, and now Star Wars. Good times. Gamers, though - they'll just eat that shit up, because, well Star Wars (2 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Mad thing about that is that some would spend a fortune on the UT, then next year they do it all over again to get the same shit in a game that has marginal changes, sometimes not even for the better. (4 minutes ago)

    MrWhite There might not be loot boxes in that game, but they just went by another name. "Packs" I believe. It's all the same shit disguised in a different wrapper. (5 minutes ago)

    MrWhite This "rude awakening" would have come long ago when the likes of EA introduced the same kind of nonsense disguised as an online mode in Fifa called Ultimate Team. (7 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @Loakum: Have they really, though? There's a lot of apologists, and down right ignorance out there. (8 minutes ago)
