Try playing on Purist and without using disguises.

We don't need UNLIMITED quicksaves, around 2 or 3 will do just fine. Infact I didn't even feel the need to save that often in Dishonored. Removing quick saves just makes it more frustrating and virtually longer to beat.

A lot of the levels I start off playing like the classic Hitman games but by the end of the level it turns into Gears of War as I'm moving hoards of people down.

I definitely understand your "Cops and SWAT" point. The rate at which they generate suspicion needs to be balanced, as it really doesn't make sense when you enter a new area and everyone automatically knows who you are.

Unless, if they play it with the fact that most cops in Dakota and Chicago know about the bar code tattoo, that would work as well. If I saw a cop with that on and there was a manhunt for a man with the same branding, I would be equally suspicious, too.

That`s the way to go! thumb.gif
Of course you are SA. Of course, and I am really sorry, sometimes one has to be the cleaner. I dont mind that I have to "tidy" the level a bit.
Even though it is not really the purpose of the game sometimes one has to clean up tongue.gif

Basically what ever disguise your wearing, people of the same costume could recognize you from great distances almost instantly. I'm not sure if they plan to take that out completely or just give you a little more of a buffer before your cover is blown.

The problem with this (and I know some of you disagree) was that the disguises became near useless in many situations, turning the game into more of a splint cell sneaking type deal. The fun of the Hitman series has always been your ability to blend in and complete the hit, not sneak around behind boxes and whatnot (IMO).

Oh I know what you mean. Yeah that's true and it's a pain in the butt. I hope they fix that smile.gif.

Why? No one really forces you to use quick saves. It's 100% up to you whether to use it or not. It's always good to have a complete game that may satisfy all likings and preferences of people. I agree with you that it will kill the purpose of the game, but that's just your and my opinion. To some other people, quick saves is an essential and we have to respect that.

Yes so let's go and add check points and quick saves to other games such as Dark Souls. Because other people might like that. thumb.gif

Actually lets just go and add a god mode and unlimited bullets as well? why not? because some people might like that. While we at it lets add an option where you are invisible and no-one can see you? because some other people might like that too? mad.gif
