    Is it me or has the voice actor for 47 changed? He doesn't sound right.

    Not any more, they released news yesterday saying you can download it for free now, rather than code in box

    Still David Bateson, he was dropped then they realised the error of their ways and rehired.

    Thanks for the reassurance duvadan and ultrasoundwave. I can't get it early as all I'm waiting for is a steam code.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Is it Hitman or not?

    I don't like the sound of compartmentalised levels.

    No, it's actually FIFA.

    It's fantastic so far. (About two hours in.)

    Still rate Blood Money as one of my favourite games; relieved to see this is as good as it is.

    Good to hear the positive reviews so far. Was a little freaked out by that QTE video but as long as classic hitman is still there then I'm happy.

    I actually think the QTEs (such as they are) fit the gameplay quite well.

    Mashing X to subdue a victim is quite tense, hoping you can finish off your victim before someone notices (and thus making it riskier than just garroting them, snapping their neck or pushing them off a ledge). Hand to hand combat is also given added risk.

    It adds a greater danger to playing stealthily.

    Do you think there will be a new game+ on this?
    Would be great to go through the game with loads of different gear.

    Here's quite a nice comparison video of the different versions

    23 gig for the PC version? Crikey, I'll certainly be putting it on my SSD with the load times being quite long.

    I don't think it really needs one. The Contracts mode gives each level pretty much infinite replayability.

    Weird technical thing on the 360 - very often it freezes for a couple of seconds, before suddenly going into fast-forward for a couple of seconds.

    Also stutters at the start of levels when the scores of people on your friends list are being loaded, and there's some stuttering in cutscenes.

    Not installed it yet, mind.

    Minor quibbles.
    Still a great game though

    Oh yeah, minor. Still, consistent enough to be noticeable and break immersion.

    Will install tomorrow and see if that sorts it.

    Got to the library section used in the E3 demo last night.

    The game continues to be well designed, each level is designed for you to complete in a number of different ways.

    Like I've said before, this is classic hitman. Yes, there are QTE's, but they don't ruin the game. Their quite similar to the QTE's used in Uncharted actually, during the unarmed combat.

    If the game keeps going as its started, it's heading for a nice, fat 9/10 IMO.

    Is the checkpointing really as bad as reviews make out?

    :/

    @Syrette
    It makes you think about what is the best strategy for each area.
    Trial and error is sometimes fun and makes each scenario tense.

    I enjoyed the save system in Blood Money. Limiting the number of saves really made you think about how you used them and it didn't feel like you could do too much experimenting with trial & error.
