One thing I truly miss in the new Hitman is the gore from Absolution (and past games)
I went back and put these three images together and it’s just much more satisfying in Absolution honestly. Hitman™ feels almost censored at times. Also the AI really needs to start reacting to blood pools etc. and the kill animations shouldn’t be over so incredibly quickly as they currently are (esp. fiber wire ) perhaps adding a slow motion effect (can be toggled in Options) and better kill-cam/view.
Edit: Here’s a video which points out some stuff that should be changed/added, the 2:09 part especially (people need to change behavior when shot, even Perfect Dark from 2000 on the Nintendo 64 had guards limping etc.)
Even better would be the [blood] engine from Max Payne 3 or similar:
