HITMAN 2 Reviews; Link any you find (Read OP first)


#206

My opinion about the cutscenes; I like 2016’s better. But this gives me more of a nostalgic vibe somehow of the art style used

and guess what, some of you were right that the SC ( or Mr Gray or Agent 6) was going to brief and go on a mission with you. Didn’t see that coming!


#207

Awesome to hear, we have a thread on the new cutscene format.


#208

wow wow wow Konami gave them a lot of money for that one


#209

No cash necessary. IGN is just full of idiots. MGSV is not a bad game but it is far from a 10.


#210

I agree, but some money was put into that review, IGN only gives out 10s when paid.
Take Sonic Pocket Adventure for example. Nobody can consider a portable Sonic game better than Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which is objectively better.


#211

I never go around screaming PAID!!! Life is much simpler than that, IGN are witless morons.

I am not a platformer guy and especially not a huge Sonic guy so I have no clue what you are on about.:joy:


#212

There’s a portable Sonic game, Sonic Pocket Adventure, which has like 6 recycled levels and got a 10 in IGN.
There’s a console Sonic game, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, which has more 10+ original levels, more content, better graphics, much more fluid gameplay and more playable characters, that got a lower score, probably an 8.

And me neither, but being in a tough economic situation makes you think only about money and nothing else. :'c


#213

Was it IGN who stated one of the cons of S1 was "it relied too heavily on disguises "?


#214

You’re right! Hitman is too hitman-ish to them :unamused:
Wait, what about SO runs? Man they screwed up big time on that one.


#215

Yes the same company who coin the phrase “too much water” (what a terrible way to write that) when reviewing a Pokemon game.


#216

I knew the reviews would be impressed.

47 always delivers!!! :wink:


#217

Looks like Hitman 2 made it on to the Rock Paper Shotgun list “Bestest Best”
I think they did one at the halfway mark for 2018 and I guess it will be on the end of year round up!


#218

I would say that I am only on New Zealand and I love the game. The atmosphere in the level is amazing.


#219

Is it really smaller than the Final Test map?


#220

Does the game feel like James Bond or is there something dark in it?


#221

I would say that they are the same size and the same amount of area is used.


#222

Well I have only played NZ so far but it is a departure from 2016. It is a small intimate level but also brooding. If you are a fan of the older games you will most likely enjoy it.

Oh and I think the music is much improved but I am not a music guy.


#223

4 more hr for me to find out :roll_eyes: I don’t know what to do to pass time.
All I think is Hitman 2. I might go for a night walk in a bit. Or night drive.


#224

Can you tell me a bit of the combat system and how the aiming feels? If its better or worse? IOI kept talking about how they improved the combat a bit so I was wondering…


#225

I have not gotten into any major combat but I did notice that guards will take cover when scanning around corners. I think they have improved aiming I really have not done much aiming.
