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.
They have darkseid. Someone I expected in justice league. And instead we got a horned Demon I don't even remember the name of...yey. (5 Hours ago)
But I think that's more a problem with DC in general. The best villains are in Batman's universe but they're insignificant bugs when you introduce the likes of superman. (5 Hours ago)
I mean, they wasted doomsday in BvsS. They KILLED zod in man of steel. And the rest have had just been generic. (5 Hours ago)
@Tinks: I dunno. I at least know who the big bad is in marvel movies. I can't say the same for wonder woman. My main issue is with DC movies in general more-so than comic book movies. (5 Hours ago)
you want to target Panther and WW, but the Avengers movies are just as guilty of all your gripes. (5 Hours ago)
TBH comic movies are shit in general now. There's no exception anymore. They're all just popcorn flicks (5 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: yup, exactly. Didn't fill me with much hope for that game tbh. It was like it was trying to appeal to angsty 14 year olds or something. (6 Hours ago)
