My main problem with this sequel (after the bugs!) is also the always online DRM, but also the Elusive Targets not being permanent.
-> HITMAN is a singleplayer experience first of all. So i don’t see any sense locking most of half the content behind online. We should be able to get the full experience even when not connected, especially the RATINGS.
THAT is a major concern for me and might be a criteria of buying HITMAN 3 or not.
–> Elusive Targets is a great idea and lots of work involved on it. I think it’s too bad to restrict these only behind temporary windows while we can have permanent but cheap targets behind “Special Assignments”.
Elusive Targets ARE Special Assignments, and a huge piece of work, if not a not forgettable part of the new HITMAN games. Just make them playable anytime.
I hope they will reconsider it and i will keep a very close eye on these two elements regarding the next HITMAN sequel.
