Allow me to re-post this from another thread:
IO Interactive knows what theyÂ´re doing. According to an article from Gamereactor in Denmark (who actually played the game at IO Interactives HQ in Copenhagen), youÂ´ll still be able to complete each and every mission without killing anyone but your target, if youÂ´re good enough, that is. TheyÂ´re also making the game more accessible for everyone, but at the same time making sure that their hardcore fans will be pleased by the increase in difficulty when attempting to clear a level perfectly (IO says this directly in a quote).
Fortunately, itÂ´s not going to be another Splinter Cell: Conviction, even though the teaser might indicate so. TheyÂ´re staying true to what makes Hitman, Hitman. I also know from the article that Hitman loses most of his "tools" in the start of the game, which might be the reason why heÂ´s going berserk in the trailers and why most of you are complaining.
Also, judging a game by the amount of footage weÂ´ve seen so far is ridiculous.
YÂ´all need to chill out. Edited by Goaky - 6/11/11 at 9:44am
