In compliance with forum guidelines, let’s keep this thread civil. I’m reposting this topic to voice my criticism against a game that I’m finding frustrating and nonsensical, which is fair criticism and not a violation of the forum rules.
I’m trying out Hitman 6 for the first time and already I’m deeply frustrated with it in the first level, Showstopper. The game literally makes no sense! I’m trying to follow different opportunities to assassinate my targets. First I followed the opportunity about helping the blogger find a lens for her camera and hosting an interview with the male target. At first I didn’t see what the point of it was, but then I discovered it’s possible to plant a remote mine on the camera. Brilliant! So I replan the mission and bring the pale duck remote mine with me. I go through all the motions as usual and try to plant my mine on the camera, but it says concealed item not available. WHY? I’m holding the mine in my hand and the game won’t let me place it on the camera!
So I try something else. I notice that the female target often wanders out onto the balcony to drink from a glass that I can poison, but there are too many witnesses there. Then I find out it’s possible to distract them with a fireworks display. Awesome! So I replan the mission, bringing a syringe of poison with me. I fulfill all the requirements to start the fireworks display. Then right when everyone is distracted I try to poison the glass, but the game says I’m missing poison. Um… no I’m NOT! I’m holding the syringe of poison in my hand! Why can’t I squirt some in the glass? If the syringe can only be used on people, then it is functionally identical to the fiber wire. So why does the syringe even EXIST?
And during the mission, I get caught on camera. Okay, I think, it’s just like in Blood Money where you have to find the security room and sabotage the footage, right? So I wander around looking for the security room and I find it in the attic. Lots of monitors and recording equipment. But there’s nothing I can do here! I tried interacting with every damn monitor but I can’t grab a tape or delete the footage! WHY?
This is only the first mission and I absolutely hate this game unlike any other Hitman title. Why does it make NO SENSE?
