Played the sp demo on my PS3 but was utterly underwhelmed.

i thought it was better than the first but the guns just feel too weak, aiming isn't tight enough (still better than the firsts tho) and altho i like the new change in visual style its lost the michael mann appeal of the first.

Plus they don't seem to have done much with the switching of the protagonists (a shame considerin in the first game lynch was easily the more interesting character).

I'll rent to see it through but i was going to buy it originally =/

This. Weapons still feel crappy, but damn the youtube style makes it feel more brutal. At least the aiming is better.

This also.

Was never interested in this, won't be fooled again.

Also wasn't fooled the first time.

On Shacknews, a poster named "Funkdrum" also reported a virus alert when he tried to download the demo. It might be an anti-virus overreating with one of the files, but to be on the safe side I'd contact tech support to see what that's all about.

Multiplayer is buggy. I crashed a couple of times. Also, the matchmaking is horrible.
The lobby system is as shitty as Red Faction: Guerrilla's lobby system.

Singleplayer is ok but i ****ing hate the camera effects. It's very distracting.

I am downloading this solely to try out the multiplayer because I liked the sound of it.

Other than that I've never cared for this game nor its predecessor.

The only thing that bothered me (a lot) in the demo was the camera shake.

Otherwise I did enjoy it.

Stop greenlighting this C crime-thriller horse shit and make a new Hitman you aspie ******s.

The pathetic movie you OK'd only sorta completely shat all over the consumer interest in your IP, gamers will still buy better reviewed games. Blood Money had me thinking you'd wizened up--but thinking this IP will take off makes me think you're honestly run by orangutans with opiate addictions.

I thought he choked on salami. No, seriously.

Giant Bomb is my homepage though. Kotick and I are looking into snapping it up and monetizing certain aspects such as the games catalog which just begs for a subscription fee. He's offering something like a cold $5 for the domain so he can buy a new pair of tighty-whities as he claims to have never changed them since working for Gamespot, so says the Wallstreet Journal.

I hate aspies, the self-diagnosed ones that just use it as an excuse to be assholes that is.

Real aspies are alright, such as myself!

aspies aren't Asperer's people, it's like fags, I disambiguated it with some brodudepalguys.

or gay, my gay ass twin brother calls ******y shit gay all the time.

the people who get offended are usually people I don't care to get to know. I say it knowing I'm offending and possibly hurting some individuals, but I'm a sadist and a demon or whatever. If those guys/gals didn't have shit like being politically correct to worry about, they'd just sit around hating themselves anyways. Social progress is never made without those who remind us what once was. It's like the words Mick or Wap, etc in the U.S. no longer offend because they just seem trite, silly.

I'm with J.K. Rowling, my favorite supporter of Witchcraft on the issue with her commentary where it slowly becomes more acceptable to say Voldamort. Nothing empowers unmentionable subjects like banning their titles, names and signifiers/signified. That's what scares me about the censorship in Germany at times, I'm a Jew with extended family that took the showers, etc, but I see no reason why someone can't get their ass beat or chewed out by the general public for being a dumbass for wearing a nazi armband around Berlin.

I hate law based on arbitrary PC bullshit, the education system in Germany is probably amongst the best in the world for teaching the holocaust. Actions, not expressions, should be be punishable by the powers that be. Expressions are judged quite adequately by the people themselves, as countless societies continue to demonstrate.



That being said, don't say ****** in public--you'll get beat up. common sense helps in these situations.

ok i take it back i'm buying this. I just tried out the online mp on the ps3 demo (i refuse to pay for xbox live) and i thought it was pretty damn fun, really enjoyable :D

and there is an addictive quality almost to keep playing to try and better yourself and steal more loot each time, great stuff :)

If this is anything like the first one it is going to KICK ASS.

The first one had a great storyline and great mechanics.

It's like the sequel to "Freedom Fighters" that never came out IMO. I'm REALLY looking forward to this one.

First impressions look pretty good, I loved the presentation as a whole, especially the music and menu.

Matchmaking is sketchy, but thats to be expected of a demo. Will comment on the gameplay later.

GOD ****ING DAMNIT IOI!!!! CAN YOU MAKE GOOD GAMES ANYMORE!!?!?! Should you even ****ing bother trying a hitman 5?

First scott pilgrim the game disappoints me massively and now this may tie with it for most disappointing game of the year for me :flame: I'm not even upset now i'm just plain pissed!
lol Why are you surprised? The first game was a piece of shit too.
The only redeeming feature was Jesper Kyd's soundtrack. This one doesn't even have that.

My face when the game is actually alright and people are using Metacritic as an accurate representation of the game's worth and Lambda is being an overreactive 'tard as usual.
