Nice list mads, agree upon some things but kinda disagree on some.
- 47s posture is good for HITMAN. Absolution had a wild west cowboy vibe and when 47 equips his pistol it looks like he going on a duel.
The only thing i want with movement mechanics is controllable walking/crouching speed. 47s signature sniper stance and the ability to completely lay down on the ground.
The environment of HITMAN is phenomenal, and yea you’re right it does misses the dark and creepy vibe. No rain, fog except mild snow in hokkaido.
For the scar, i’m in support of that idea. Since the game is cannon, a slighty healed scar would’nt hurt.
Return of hiding in the crowd. In absoltution it felt great hiding in the crowd while carefully moving. Now, guards can spot you like there’s nothing between you and them and they just open fire. What’s more hilarious is the bullets that guards fire only hit you.
Dual weilding, human shield and i think hiding your face while getting past the enforcers should return because it feels really dumb to just walk in front of them and all hell breaks loose.
Instinct should be unlimited but using the face hiding mechanic should only buy you 10 seconds in normal difficulty and 5-7 seconds in profession difficulty. Also depending upon the distance between 47 and the enforcer.
Also, i’ve seen a yt video showing the point shooting in alpha version of the game. You can only mark upto 3 targets in comparison to the number of bullets in your mag (in absolution). Absolution also had an option to disable the cinematic movie feel to point shooting.
I think this ability should return, the number of marks should depend upon you gun, its weight and time to move the gun around so the marks can range from 2-5 max. It’s a very neat ability and can be switched off in the options.
- For the targets, yes. I think some of them are really dumb especially Ken ‘The Brick’ Morgan, the brick??? As if, he’s The Rock’s far cousin?? Nah.
Every mission followed the minimum 2 target formula. If bangkok only had jordan as my target but with a little more finess i’d love it. The dumb target and the hotel environment is the reason why bangkok is my least played level.
Caruso on the other hand was fucking hilarious, kinda felt sad when you pull a gun on him and he just begs for his life. The voice actor and the writing is brilliant on this one! Same goes for marco abiati.
