    I picked this up the other day so i'm not too far into it yet but up to now it's not exactly set my world on fire. in comparison to some of the good stealth games from recent years - alien isolation, mgsv, dishonored 2 - the hitman formula is starting to feel a bit dated to me.

    besides a fancy ui, i've not seen many new additions of note. the obvious one is "opportunities" - 47 eavesdropping a conversation that unlocks a sequence of events for him to follow resulting in an opportunity (surprisingly) to take out a target. there's also a few useful things from previous games that have been removed like being able to peek through keyholes which is disappointing.

    the game's really pretty and each new level at the start feels like it's going to be an exciting stealth sandbox bursting with possibilities but very quickly i find myself seeing the "opportunity revealing itself" indicator appear on the map and then just following on screen prompts. it feels like it's meant to be played this way which detracts from the dynamic, opportunistic gameplay of previous games. and there's no real story thread to follow between missions either which i think is a shame.

    i'm bit surprised i haven't taken to it more (love previous games, even enjoyed absolution); i remember reading dozens of posts on neogaf not too long ago of people gushing over how it was the best hitman game ever. i feel like i'm missing something.

    any thoughts / opinions on it from others?

    I haven't played the new one, but I remember playing the old Hitman games and I found them to be fun. Unfortunately, my PC at the time was quite slow, so the gaming experience was not one of the best.

    Haven't yet. Hear good things about it overall, at least in terms of it been a solid Hitman game. I intend to play it soon.
