Hello everyone. I'm a time traveler.

I come from a dystopian futuristic New York where the DXHR forum resides.

I came all the way through time and space to reveal a thing for everyone:

I never played any Hitman games.

Should i?

Hey there, I played the original Hitman 5 years ago and it was awesome :D So I just saw a new one comes out and it reminded me of the first one.. well I'll definetely check the forums once in a while. Are the other 3 Hitman games worth checking? Maybe I'll give them a try too!

Irate_Iguana
11th May 2011, 08:12

Yes. They tend to get better with each iteration. You get more options and less wonky AI.

BigBoss
11th May 2011, 08:22
I'd recommend starting with blood money and working your way backwards in case you start to get burned out from catching up on 3 games. Don't worry, the plot is practically nonexistent.

Hitman , my fav game series of all time.

Can't get enough of Agent47, I hope they keep the silent assassin style of killing/knocking out targets,etc.

There's not many games where you can kill a target with poison from a puffer fish and calmly walk out of the area in a nice suit.

I love the trial and error ways of trying to finish the game with barely a kill and no alarms tripped etc. It's such a drastic change of pace from twitch gaming.

I really, REALLY, I mean REALLY, really hope they don't over action-ize the game to point of ridiculousness. I know the common theme these days is to add a all you can eat buffet of action and MP , but please ,please DO NOT remove any stealth features found in the previous games.

If they do that then I can rest assured this will be a proper Hitman.

We have a multitude of action games to choose from ,a mountain of overabundance in that genre. But... the thinking man's hitman, the stealth game is a small, small option as far a new titles hitting the market.

Stealth...

that is all

I love Blood Money, but I am sick of having to play it over and over again because no one has put out a decent stealth game in years. Hopefully Absolution fills this void. Long live 47!

Hitman 1 is difficult due there is no save game ability and the graphics are a bit low however it's worth trying. Hitman 2 and 3 are much better and their storyline is impressive aswell as gameplay and graphics.

Well here is alittle something about me, I'm a PC gamer and I like the hit man series!

I plan on getting the LGA 2011 Socket, X79 Express Chipset when the 22nm processors come out in april of 2012 with the new graphic cards, the graphic cards have 32 lanes of data transfer instead of 16, 32 lanes of data transfer should improve games I think!
For now I got a X58 Platform with an Intel i7 920 processor, Nvidia GTX 560 TI Graphic Card that supports DX11, 6GB G.Skill 1600 MHz DDR3 memory and a 500GB hard drive from Western Digital Calivar Black, O my system is 6 years old now.

Been waiting for the "Next Generation" in Gaming to get here!!!

My first Hitman game was BM, bought it completely on impulse, but have never regretted the decision. Later I got SA and enjoyed it. I have been waiting for the new one for so long! I need a release date already.

Greetings, fellow assassin-lovers.

I´m really curious about the game. It has been quite a while now since I last dusted off the silverballers. A bit.. massively sad also to see Bateson and Kyd go, but after the initial urge to nerdrage some, I decided I still want to play the game. So...here I am.

Hi

I've been playing the entire Hitman series since... erm... ahem 2002.

Have literally grown with this game, but I would happily part with it if the next installment does not make the hit.

No more David Bateson or Vivienne McKee... Honestly speaking that almost made me bin the lot. Having known quite a few actors trying to get a break; it's a shoddy way to treat people. The two I've just mentioned are like the whole franchises royalty to me. The reasons for getting rid of them are more likely to be psychopathic than professional.

So what more is there to say? Bring on the release, the journey has been pretty epic so far...

And well if it's crap, I won't be too surprised.

Hi all,
Massive hitman fan and have played Hitman Silent Assassin and Blood Money to death wasn’t to keen on contracts but I am so excited to play the next instalment as it looks fantastic.

Can’t wait to get my hands on Sniper challenge just to pass some time till November

Augustine
13th Jun 2012, 00:32
Might as well say hey all!

Been a fan of the Hitman franchise since Silent Assassin, have all the games and I'm hugely disappointed that David Bateson, Vivienne McKee, and Jesper Kyd won't be returning for whatever reason.

Thankfully from previews of that Chinatown level and the Sniper Challenge the game seems to have kept the Atmosphere I feel in love with in Hitman 2

I make music and I'm an English teacher at an English cultural center in Sofia, Bulgaria (chill, not a grammar nazi, misspell all you want :D )
That's about it! Currently awaiting Absolution (game event of the year to me, my gf can take Assassins Creed 3 and shove it and Dishonored looks like a Bioshock ripoff mated with a Thief ripoff) and... yeah. Pros know why Hitman is The Game.

Hey guys, I'm a long time fan of the Hitman series. Really enjoying Absolution so far, even if there are some differences in the game that I'm not sure I really like, But that's only to be expected with a new release, it may take some time getting used to.
Anyway, hope to make plenty of contracts for everyone and get many sleepless nights in attempting all of yours. =)

Hi all, I'm new to the Hitman series, I'm mainly a multiplayer guy, but I gotta say I been having waaaay more fun with this than I expected, especially when I found out about the Contracts that can be player created!

(I'm on PS3 playing Absolution)

I'd be interested in having a look around other peoples contracts and putting some on my youtube channel, example vid here, demonstrating my total commitment to the series by shaving my head :D,

Hey all, I'm Webimpulse, and I'm a Hitman veteran, since Hitman Contracts. I know that doesn't make me the hardest of core, but I'm still down with the 47. ;) (Yeah, that was cheesy, I apologize.)

Anyway, I've really been digging the Contracts mode of Hitman Absolution. I can't wait to share my creations with the rest of you. :D Happy hitting!
