tl;dr - great game, would totaly recommend.
Many bad reviews are all about "It's not like classic Hitman games". But it's not that bad =) Of course it has some annoying flaws:
1. Why, why the f*ck I can't run without disguise and not being spotted?! This annoy me more the any other flaws. When I'm in disguise I can run, crouch or do anything stupid and all attention I will get is some comment like "Are you sneaking or something?". But without disguise I somehow stamp like elephant! And of course everyone in 100m radius will hear this!
2. Checkpoints. I hate this save system. You have to find this point, and sometimes its harder to get there, then to just complete the mission, or it's located in 1 minute from the beginning and have no use. Simple "old-way" menu -> save game would be so much better.
3. Instinct and disguise system. Instinct is not bad or something, but it's kind of useless. I played on Hard mode and used this feature about 2-3 times in all game. The only time it helps when you want to pass by some enemy in uniform just like yours. Enemies with the same disguise as you will start pursuing you if you stand in their vision too long. You can use instinct to fool them, but it can't be for long. So you have to crawl, just like you have no disguise at all.
But through it all, I liked this game. It's just Hitman - one of the greatest stealth game. Story is quite intresting, while previous games had almost no plot. This is one of those thing that keep you playing, you want to know what will happen next.
And to everyone who may read this review and think that Agent 47 became sappy and helped Diana and her "daughter" just try to remember the last words in the game (I hope you have completed it) Exellent work, 47. The money has been wired to your account. Welcome back and thank you.
Graphics are great. Smooth shadows, many particles and shiny bald head =D
In other terms it is same old Hitman.
