GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

Until you can directly ask us questions about the new Hitman in our livestream this evening, why don't you take a look at the following gameplay videos captured on PS4? We'll tell you more about the game tonight, but we have managed to translate the +/- section of our French review to ease the wait. Enjoy!
Note: On consoles, the frame rate can either be locked at 30 fps or unlocked.

+ Steady 30 fps
- Unsteady 60 fps (more like 45, sometimes)
If the 30fps options is rock solid, we can't penalize the game for an unsteady unlocked frame rate. After all, they did not promise 60fps, did they?

In any case, having glitches in this game is UNACCEPTABLE considering it's a 1/5th of a full game.

Blim and I are the kind of people who think that if you can't reach a steady 60 fps, you shouldn't make it available. Luckily, we are given the choice, but again, the question here is: why?

That's a fair point but still unlocked frame rate is unlocked frame rate, it does not come with a promise of 60 fps attached. I suppose this setting obviously makes more sense for PC and less so for a console so it could be considered a -ve in the review seeing as PS4 is the version being tested.

Thanks for the videos :)

Just Two questions ... 1- Almost How many hours does it take to beat the original game ? 2- As you said only one real level so this game is a joke right?

P.S. I know about the episodic thing and stuff

There are the two small tutorial levels of the beta and the real big one in Paris.

It's not about how long it takes to beat all 3 of them, it's long you keep playing these levels over and over again to find all the different ways you can kill the targets (and to kill the other targets in the other contracts also set in the Parisian level - plus contracts created by other players). I don't know how much time I've spent on the game since Tuesday, but I'd say enough to justify the price tag in my opinion. Now those who only want to play each level once should just drop it for the moment and wait until all content is available.

Why are the animations and such so poor still? Looks like last gen type, opening door, walking, 47 wont nudge people out of the way so it creates some weird clipping...etc. its like they are still stuck with last gen animations.

I am basing this one what i have seen on youtube from the beta.

Thank god there is an option for 30fps. Disappointed to hear about loading times. This problem needs to be addressed :(

There aren't many of them thankfully, just the one to launch the mission really. Well unless you want to reload a save that is.

What specs were you running it on? Beta ran at 60fps for me, although barely staying afloat with like 64-69fps when not vsync locked.
So there's just Paris, huh? Disappointing, but we saw it coming. Hopefully this trend won't catch on.
On the bright side since I have trouble finishing meaty games nowadays such small portions should be ideal for me. 3-4 hours after work, maybe replay it on the next day, and then wait another few months.

Good that you are doing this game sharing thing, so much money saving, i do this with raptor. As long as both come to good terms and a working system it should be fine :)
