Berlin club level, wow. The atmosphere and music is perfect. The only sort of negative which I'd say Dartmoor also had is that basic SA completion is so straightforward. Target routes are so simple and it makes them easy kills. Kind of plays itself if you just explore normally.

After 3 levels I think I can safely say if you're not going for the challenges this game would feel like a let down. Where are the Sapienza, Paris or Miami tier designs?

Or maybe it's partially because a lot of us have become better at playing Hitman over the last few years? I mean sure, it would be nice if Hitman 3 upped the difficulty level, but I don't think it's easier than previous games.

I haven't played 3 yet, but SASO can be pretty tough if you're not looking at guides. Even when SA can be pretty easy. The challenges are one of the reasons I much preferred the episodic release of the first one. If you're forced to, you end up spending more time doing challenges and having fun experiencing everything. At least that was the case for me. Can't imagine just playing through each level once. Would feel like such a waste.

It's not necessarily a ease of difficulty thing (although it might be a bit for me) but I guess more about the intricacy of the mission. Berlin oozes with style and has a great concept with killing bad guys in a nightclub but the execution of it is a little lackluster. 1 target at the start is a freebie, 1 on the roof is a sitting duck, and the other 3 conveniently walk past isolated areas with crates. Love the level but seeing how it unfolded was a little anticlimactic.

But maybe it's unfair to want everything to be as good as the best levels in the series. Just felt like a wasted opportunity.

Really bummed that they arent adding any levels. Going back to the older missions from Hitman 2 and 2016 I kinda feel like the Hitman 3 levels are fairly limited in scope by comparison. Not that they are bad by any stretch, just not as expansive and filled with opportunities as much as the older ones.

Someone please enlighten me...

Why the fuck story mission guide exists?

I get why officially, those mission stories are at times pretty tricky to figure out so u need to replay level many times n learn inner logic of the game systems, learn how to follow the clues to do that... BUT ISN'T IT THE WHOLE IDEA OF THIS DAMN GAME?

It is like adding easy mode to Dark Souls.

Like they made this monumental achievement of a game that everyone should scream everywhere about n then turned on autoplay by default.

Why are you trying to hide from people you made the best stealth game of the past generation IOI... just why?

They added it to give a more guided and focused experience to those who may have no history with a Hitman game. It helps show them how the systems of the game work and also pushes beginners in the right direction. You can turn it off. Why are more options a bad thing?
