    great review, passing my time before i can get my hands on the game by reading reviews has been frustrating. Many people are just compairing it to some faded memory of Blood Money, it looks like you went into the game with an open mind and enjoyed it. I can't wait to do the same

    Great review, love this line: It’s as if Quentin Tarantino made a Hitman game--so thick with pulp that you’ll struggle to swallow, but so sweet and delicious that you’ll have a hard time giving it up.

    I think the linear stealth segments and more simple levels may seem like a sad "sign of the times" initially, but they help make the series more (shudder) accessible to newcomers, and therefore gain more fans for the franchise. Then, in the NEXT Hitman game,the focus will return to the more open-ended assasinations of old, but now with a larger fanbase instead of just us original fans. Unless 47 really does die this time...Doubt it though.

    Just found out you can fit sniper rifles in your jacket. What the Hell... I loved the old briefcase method, it felt like Leon (The Professional).

    Can Contract mode contain spoilers if you haven't finished the Absolution part of the game? I know it uses the same levels and have not tried it yet cause I don't want to spoil something for myself.

    Kinda! It doesn't give away story elements but you do kind of want the surprise of "Where will 47 end up next?" and that's taken away in Contracts as you see all the levels you will go to in the game.

    It seems to me alot of people who are harping on this game need to let go of the past and let the series move on. Judge the game for what it is, not by previous entries. The game alone seems incredibly fun and judging by the great reviews, Im deff. picking this up.

    Never played a hitman game but looking forward to pick this one up.

    I'm enjoying it so far but I'm finding the changes a little frustrating; I can't play it like I played Blood Money, I can't play it like I play SC:Conviction and I can't play it like I play Arkham City. I guess it'll just take some practice to get the right approach.
