I never played it but wasn't Hitman 2 suppose to very dark even compared to the others?
"woah.. didn't know reading one line of text could crush my spirit like thatCover based corridor shooter with regenerating health, an obligatory escort mission and a few dozen shootouts with infinitely respawning enemies that you can't avoid.This'll be great."

I'm not worried about it. If IO screws this one up, they won't have much a future and they'll get what they kind of deserve. I'd hate to see such a great series fail, but if that's what it comes to... by now, I'm almost numb from franchises losing what they once were in order to go for the mass market appeal. I hope for both their sake and mine that their marketing terms are just empty buzz words to drum up the more simple-minded crowd.
"A very Hollywood approach", means that this game "won't be good." They could've made a good film, but they ended up releasing a steaming pile of crap.makes you wonder why on earth they'd do such a thing when their 2006 title, the third sequel in their franchise, was widely loved and critically acclaimed.. why would they ruin such an amazing streak ?
I remember thinking the same thing about Blood Money before it came out.
I still think it's too early to tell, and judging by this article. It just looks like they wanna tell a better story.
That all fine by me, just as long as they follow a few simple rules.
1) David Basteson reprises his role to voice 47
2) You can still successfully complete a mission without killing anyone but your target (by choice of course).
3) Keep it classy.
The Hitman franchise was always about choice, from the beginning they only told you the who and where. The rest was up to you to figure out utilizing the skills 47 had available to him.
I'm not denying that they might fuck it up. But considering their track record for making badass Hitman games. I'd like to think that we have nothing to worry about.
