Hmm watching this trailer was quite interesting during the Playstation conference. I was not expecting it at all but when i saw the first few moments of it, i just somehow knew it was Hitman. I like the new feel it has to it, almost like Hitman has had a upgrade or some sort for the next gen console but you can still get that original Hitman feeling…if that makes any sense haha
Sooo lets get down to business…
I am a sucker for a really good cinematic and this was definitely a good cinematic for the game. I like that it has that sort of movie film to it and there was no cliche voice over to talk you through the trailer, it just allowed you as the viewer to embrace and learn about the game as the time goes on. Almost as if the game will just speak for its self and no words are required.
The trailer actually reminded me of how one of the early Watchdog trailers came across but that isnt necessarily a good thing because the game didn’t really resemble that trailer BUT otherwise the trailer looked good!!
I did have a look at the gameplay trailer but wasn’t too impressed in terms of graphics but i was impressed with the idea of having your own style when performing your assassinations and being given the room to improvise when playing the game. I also thought It was super awesome that they gave players the option to explore the world and access time limited missions that will only surface once. This just scream massive replay value and suggest that the game will also be relevant in providing new a fresh content compared to other games that already have programmed missions.
As I have said in previous reviews, next generation console are taking the open world to a whole new level and really challenging the player to really play how they would like to play and make the game all about them. Especially with a game like Hitman that is all about being that solo top assassin, the style of an open world game is something that would compliment Hitman perfectly and everything it is all about. Every assassin has their own style and the new game is all about bring that out of the player
