View Full Version : Hitman 2 Demo

The October issue of PC Gamer (US) includes a demo of Hitman 2 on the CD.

Update:

On my system (Voodoo3 card, PIII 600), no skins or textures, but I do get a good sense of the game play options. The desktop color depth needs to be 16 (I'm guessing that's because of the video card), and I cannot play full screen -- well, actually, I can if I set the window size to the same size as the desk top.

The music is excellent.

Initial impressions good, even with the lack of skins and textures. I can hardly wait for the final build.

How the heck do you obtain October issue if it's only August? :confused:

Or they send subscriptions 2 months earlier or something....????

Both PC Gamer and CGW are two months ahead of the real world when it comes to subscription issues. I've heard a number of explanations for this, but they don't make much sense to me.

Ah, I see. Perhaps, you should have mentioned that before. :D

Zaphod will probably have hard time locating the mag in a news kiosk ;)

Nope! Mostly it's that I got so excited with "demo included in magazine" that I didn't notice that Catman said "October."

Plus, he DID write it in the present tense: "October's PC Gamer includes," not "October PC Gamer will include"...

So I place at least half the blame on Catman.

It might, Sammie, but it might not. I haven't seen a game yet that hit its release date exactly. Even so, this will be nice for ppeople who haven't played the first one and want to get a sense of what the game's about.

We can always use some fresh n00bs in the forums :)

Perhaps the moral of this story is: Subscribe to gaming magazines. ;)

If the demo has been released, then why isn't it available on the hitman2 website? Do they really expect me to pay for the demo?

No, no. The demo hasn't been released yet. The October issue of PC Gamer will have the demo. I would assume that IOI/Eidos will release the demo on their site(s) around that time. My sources have been suspiciously mum lately, or I'd have more dirt to dish.

This is what you get for not reading the messages properly :) My mistake.

Catman, a question for you.
Does the demo (or it's readme) mentions anything about minimum system requirements?

Catman

The demo requires: CPU speed 300 Mhz, RAM 128 MB, DirectX 8.1. Not really very informative.

I bought Hitman for $30 bucks yestereday, from a small store. Full version. I haven't played it yet. I have a bad feeling it was Warez. Could this be possible?

Where's ICE, by the way? I'll be home in two weeks. See you then.
