Pros: Some old school type levels, nice graphics
Cons: Broken disguise system, not enough targets, hand holding, list of objectives
The classic disguise system is no longer classic. Enemies will easily reconigze 47 unless the new instinct meter is used. This is a limited feature so chances that everything devolves into a shootout are highly increased. When using the instinct ability it also highlights things in the environment you can interact with, further devaluing figuring out the once fun moving puzzles for yourself.
The story isn't particularly entertaing either. Agent 47 steals a little girl to keep her out of the hands of the evil folks that want her. It has to be vauge to keep it spoiler free.
The voice acting is good enough but the music clearly suffers having lost series mainstay composer Jesper Kyd.
Graphically the game is impressive but will sometimes resort to low quality FMV scenes.
If you haven't played a Hitman game before you may enjoy it, however long time fans are sure to be disapointed.
