It's looking that way. Which is annoying because it actually looks like a decent game in it's own right. But IO don't help themselves by seemingly stringing along fans of the franchise and saying how these are only small bits of the game, and it's still 'classic hitman'. Well if that's the case, then why the f*ck has all their marketing focused on these 'small bits'? You've got an established franchise, stop trying to enter an oversaturated market. Or at least be honest and come out and say it's radically different from previous titles, because as of now I have no interest in this.... Fun trailer, but it served absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

What kind of abomination was that? Are they turning Hitman into some kind of crazy ninja action hero directed by Michael Bay.

If this video is any indication of the game itself then this is a sad day for Hitman fans. Judging by the comments & the dislikes im not the only one who was disspointed with the trailers:

Hitman Absolution will fail so hard. Nobody wants this sh!tty game

Way to f**k up everything that made hitman interesting. How retarded is the game designer to not understand what people liked about hitman. (It was not the shooting segments and the story, it was being a hitman in a contemporary, semi-realistic scenario)

IO can go f**k themselves, they already failed twice with their K&L games and now they ruin hitman

Just awful. He can now teleport?

How much did you spend on this crappy CGI that has nothing to do with the game? You should have invested that better in making the game good, not corridor shooter for idiots

I do not understand why developers keep destroying their own franchises as a means of appealing to COWADOODY crowd, and then wonder why they failed.

How many failures do they need to see to get the point?

The only gameplay I've seen is Batman Arkham City with Agent 47. Why can he see through walls? There's too much stealth and action and not enough disguises and different ways to complete a mission. Thats what the old Hitman games were about.

I LOL'd at the "ORIGINAL ASSASSIN" part... ironic since the trailers show's no stealth or assassinating, It looked like Max Payne. WTF is going on? Are all genre's just going to blend together or something?

He cant see through walls, thats just his assassin training (think Ezio's eagle vision), what is on screen is just to help the player keep up, with regards to the trailer, unless you expect him to dress up as a nun, he got the job done through standard means.

It's not really hate... its people that just want a franchise game from a franchise to come out and not conform to current generation norm. I guess its always going to happen since companies want to make money and gamers essentially want to live in the past. The cure for this would be that if developer's completely divert of their original path then for the love of God just call it something else since the name will hold no value to the game that you are developing.

I'd be happy with that. The game actually looks pretty solid, but I want a sequel to Blood Money. I wouldn't mind so much if the developers didn't keep going on about how it's still the same old game we love, when they haven't shown anything to actually disprove any criticism despite acknowledging it. Put up or shut up.

Guys...this is a CGI trailer. Nine times out of ten they don't even come close to representing what the actual game will look like. Dead Island is a prime example in this case. Relax. Reserve whatever hate you may have for actual gameplay footage. Besides, despite the silliness of that trailer, 47 really put a hurting on them bit*hes :P

This is a disgrace to the catholic church. Showing women dressed this way and dirtying the image of nuns.

That's why I liked it.

Square enix cgi department at work.

To be fair, in the previous games he had some sort of magical map that can identify individuals and group them according to whether they'd be hostile, a target or a civilian and show their movements in real time. That's just a streamlined version of the map. Also, there are so many things I don't get about this trailer... It's like every stereotype about videogames rolled into one :/

my thoughts exactly im also sure IO said the higher the difficulty the less things like you got on your hud/ or that eagle vision stuff aswell.

So im agreeing here, people on the internet espeically the gamers seem to whinge bout everything, sure its ironic i was complaining bout the Periphery II teaser, then i see Scarlet and a couple of bulb's solo songs made it on board and i was filled with glee.Dont judge everything off 1 snippet its just insanely stupid.

lol only picking Hitman fans. To be honest I have never played a Hitman game, and in some ways the new one looks good and in some ways not so much. I can see where it comes off as a bit Splinter Cell Convictiony though. But then again, trailers like this, as some have pointed out, don't necessarily mean too much come gameplay. I think everyone here can testify that SSX is far better than they thought it would be after seeing the release trailer.

Flashy CGI trailer, designed to be as flashy as possible and appeal to a mass market.

Stop looking so much into it.

#38 Posted by tryagainlater (7445 posts) -

It was a pretty stupid trailer but I can't believe how people are reacting to it. Acting like the franchise is definitely ruined. I thought I was a negative person.

You were always able to do missions multiple ways with both action and stealth in Hitman. There was a little bit of stealth in that trailer when he took down the nuns at the back then he went postal. No need to get stressed yet, you'll live longer.

Still a stupid trailer though :P

Didn't know gameplay footage was already out. Well you can complain about that but still it looked nothing like that CGI trailer which was just a bloodfest. That looked great actually. Solid stealth machanics and costume changing is still there. Not much to complain about?:?

#43 Posted by skrat_01 (33767 posts) -
Horrible horrible trailer. Guess the adolescents are pleased, wooo, you reach a wider audience developers, with whatever tackiness you deem necessary. Even that being said the developers actually used sex to interesting effect in Blood Money, even if it deliberate crass; this trailer doesn't bode well in that respect.

He walks right past people... 2 feet away from him in a room that isn't that dark with the light reflecting right of his shiny head. He hits the guy and makes a load noise and no one is alarmed. Its so silly. I guess AI needs to be a little dim in order for you to actually play the game. Still looks silly though.

It looks like it plays like a tutorial mission in any of the other games. Problem isn't necessarily the direction, it's that IO sound like they're trying to appease fans of the franchise whilst doing the opposite in terms of marketing and gameplay footage. They acknowledge that a stealth trailer would be boring, but really how hard would it be to release gameplay from a wide open level if that was the case? Then they can go about marketing it as a MATURE SEXY TPS WHOA and still retain the excitement of the fanbase.

At least sex was somewhat relevant to the scene in Blood Money, this is like some horrible imagining of every game stereotype out there :P

It's showcasing more rigid scripting than Half Life 1. Rigid scripting is something the Hitman games were never about; and when it was introduced it was generally terrible; Blood Money was a game that actually understood the formula after years of hits and misses. This is deviating down predetermined rigid gameplay, a huge deviation and change in direction in the series - much greater than Splinter Cell Conviction. Imagine if Garret in Thief was suddenly behaving like Altair, using limp social stealth in restricted sequences to solve a single problem, or forced to shoot targets with arrows at another pre demerited sequence. If you want an effective contrast compare this demo - to Hitman Blood Money's first tutorial mission. They're identical in the types of structuring bar a costume change. Now compare that to the rest of Blood Money;s increasingly complex missions. I want Absolution to be good, and I imagine it could be good for what it is; but deviating from what made the series stand out isn't what I'd call a direction definitive of what made the series stand out to begin with. No, add the hypersexualised latex nuns with guns because lol, we need to appeal more to the raging hormone crowd.

Precisely. Characters in Blood Money were generally deliberately hypersexualised in an ugly manner - as a way of abstracting whatever player guilt there might be in murdering these malformed people (good interview about the art direction a while back, in edge I think). Then you had the other hypersexualised assassins who would lure the player - low and behold - with the premise of 'ooh boy sex' and kill 47. Which was godamn fantastic. I couldn't agree more really, this really is all that; as deliberate as it may be. If anything its a big proclamation to what audience they're gunning for.
