Re: 'Hitman: Blood Money' Feedback Thread
I just finished the game and I got it last Friday. Overall an excellent game. Visually a mixture between SCCT and HL2 and performance was good with maxxed out details. Most later levels are more taxing than the demo level but it never got unplayable. The only negative thing about the visuals are sometimes lack of polygons in the levels (square-look) and characters are LOD-ing their polygon count a little too close (approx. 5m from our character).
AI was decent and you definitly have to be careful what you do infront of their eyes. I love to blow them up with the remote bomb or shoot them in the head with a silenced gun. Quite satisfying. There are tons of hilarious moments in the game.
Sounds are a good, nice EAX effects, but the voice distance is a little off and disappears too rapidly from a certain point on.
Controls leave room for improvement, especially in close gunfights or when things get hectic the keys can get a little complicated but again, no gamebreaker.
First-person mode kind of sucked though. It just felt totally weird.
Overall I´d rate it with 8.8/10 and it´s definitly the best Hitman game so far.
