I never anticipated doing another thread like this where I would have to take off my IOI Fan Shades, but as you may know in our community Hitman HD Enhanced Collection came out. Now I was excited when I learned about this last week during my class. Seeing an updated version of Hitman Blood Money was welcoming to me especially since I’m fond of the level design. Seeing an HD Collection of two dated games I anticipated the pack to retail for $30 USD since again the two games are now dated with BM being released in 2006 and Absolution being released in 2012. Unfortunately as information slowly was revealed to us about this collection the more my excitement diminished.
I don’t quite was thinking when they labeled this as a Collection but giving it a retail price of $60 felt quite ludicrous. I’m gonna say it right now all Hitman HD Enhanced Collection is well it’s just the PC Versions of both titles on MAX settings hence why it was never released on PC. This is a very lazy compilation that had so much potential especially since they are sitting on the HD versions of SA and Contracts from the 2013 release of the HITMAN HD Trilogy.
If they added SA and Contracts the price tag would be more justifiable and reasonable. Unfortunately, to me, this seems like IOI trying to exploit the nostalgia of old players and the curiosity of new players. I won’t be purchasing this compilation until it goes half off and if they release the HD Versions of Contracts and SA and made a $60 Bundle of it then I will gladly pay the $60.
This was another missed opportunity by IOI. I hope you give feedback and that you gained something from this. I hate how IOI is sitting on HD versions of Contracts and SA and quite frankly put more thought in releasing this product.
