Of course, nearly all of Blood Money took place in the United States as well.
I live in the U.S. and I love it but I'm a bit tired of it in Hitman. Especially the rural hick parts of the country shown in Blood Money and now again in Absolution. I miss the international flavor of the earlier games. Even Bateson's vaguely European accent is replaced with something more American, and it looks like the Agency is moving from Europe and becoming a US-based operation.
But-- IOI is located outside of the US and so are many of the fans (including most if not all the HMF staff). Mississippi might be just as exotic to someone in Australia as St. Petersburg is to me.
So, if you don't live in the US, how do you feel about all the US locations?
Despite my concern, I did enjoy the locations in Blood Money's Northern California mission(retirement home) and in Till Death Do Us Part. Also looking forward to Chicago. I was really excited for the White House but the White House in the game seemed very detached from my notions about it and I thought it was rather boring.
The Vegas missions could have been in Europe or Dubai and been more interesting. I never really felt like I was in Las Vegas, but I've never been there in real life so who knows.
