    I haven't played it, don't use me as a measure! I'm just sulking! :)

    I will probably buy it (love that big bald bastard), I guess I'm just mourning the lost potential .

    Anyone got any tips on getting the guard away from the manhole on the cinatown level? Ive tried throwing a bottle, but the guard stays where he is and instead my target goes and investigates it :(

    Loving the sound of contracts mode so many possabilities.Bit dissapointed that you seem to get discovered even when disguised.I wouldn't let game out till that was fixed as it's an integral part of game they never seem to get this right:( the last hitman had a problem with it at times as did splinter cell

    It's deliberate. The idea is that the police, for example, know all the officers in an area so they get suspicious when see someone wandering around in a uniform that they don't recognise. Same for gardeners, cooks, etc. it's more realistic that way.

    I agree they should allow a bit more time before it triggers a response though.

    Did anyone notice that the old guy in the lift that was in the E3 demo/walkthough of the 'Run for your Life' (escape from the hotel) level wasn't there. Instead you have to create a diversion to draw the police away from the elevator. When you get in there is a poster for a missing person which is the old guy. Made me cuckle.

    So is this level as bad as the video posted earlier suggests?


    I reckon there is probably over 12 ways to kill that guy with one of them being dressed as a wrestler.

    If you get noticed and have to use unarmed techniques then it is a short 2 to 3 button quicktime even which is cleaner than having a bad close combat system.

    Besides if you're playing the games like it wants you to play it then you shouldn't have to fist fight with anyone.

    Dark, the way I did it was wait for King to be at the Sushi bar, mingle in the crowd near the guard overlooking the sewer and have a bottle ready to lob. When King had finished the sushi and was starting to turn/walk towards his 'standing by open sewer' routine, I lobbed the bottle just to the right of the sewer. This caught the attention of the guard, who wandered over and was looking around at the wall. King continued on and stands by the sewer. I walked out of the crowd, pushed him in and casually walked off again. To be honest I was really surprised I'd managed to pull it off without being seen as the timing and nature of the hit is so tense, especially to distract that otherwise non-moving guard, but it worked - hence the tricky nature of my Contract ;) heh! Good luck if you have another crack at it, it's a tough one!

    Game arrived from lovefilm today, 360 version. Only upto the second mission (hotel one)brilliant fun.

    I'm only playing on normal as I want to enjoy and not get wound up, which the older I get the easier it is for game to do to me!
    I may replay on a harder setting when I complete.

    I've had a fair few hours with this now, i've managed to get up to the part where your making your way to Birdie back through Chinatown.

    The game has had some brilliant moments, but there are some frustrations too.

    A great moment i had last night was assassinating the guy in the vixen night club. Before i entered the place, i had picked up a cop uniform. When i got inside, all the strippers and bouncers were saying things like "evening officer", "Chicagos finest : always welcome", etc,etc. Brilliant little touch.

    Anyhow, i managed to get a keycard and get into a backroom where there was a double-sided mirror and a videocamera. I waited for the bloke to come in for a private dance and got him with a headshot from the other side of the glass.

    Brilliant, loved that mission.

    I will agree with what others are saying about the disguises though. People do tend to get suspicious of you VERY quickly.

    On one hand, i think that if some stranger came into my work, even if he was wearing the same clothers as the rest of us i'd still know he wasnt someone i regularly see on a day to day basis.

    For the sake of a videogame though, for the sake of entertainment, i think they should nerf how quickly people get suspicious. Hopefully they can patch it if enough people complain.

    The way I did it was...when you get to the main square if you turn left you will notice a police man down a alley next to a car. I waited for him to move behind the wall out of view then follow him and choke him out. I then changed into his uniform. If you go to the top of the stairs there are some food boxes with weapons hidden inside (a secret triad stash). I picked up a remote detonator and placed it behind the car then set off the car alarm. This is the targets car so when he hears this he comes to investigate. I walk off towards the exit and then used instinct mode to see if he's close enought to the car. When he is I detonate the explosives and then walk out he exit.

    Worth it, game looks great. One annoying thing though is the actual game has such high detail that the cut scenes look like they are years old. Definitely an argument for cut scenes in-engine.

    @SlackMaster

    I think darkmorgado was looking for info on ways of best completing a specific hit I created and challenged him to in the Contracts mode of the new Hitman- the guy I placed the hit on has to be taken out in a very specific way to achieve the best score and tick all the bonus criteria!

    Your method is however, perfectly valid for the main story mission involving that person SlackMaster ;)
