Thinking about going to Best Buy haha.. Did yours come with the Sniper Challenge and have you played it? Phone Post

I got it last week, I really enjoy it but it's not as good as the last one (which I loved.)

Doesn't seem to be as many unique ways to complete some of the levels, which is what I loved most about the previous one. Phone Post

Not as good as blood money. It's all about survival and story mode. I miss the plain hits. And the news paper clipping after each game. You don't get to pick ur weapon load out. Looks great but doesn't hit my expectations since it has been 6 and a half years since the last Phone Post

Is there anything that the game does that is an improvement over Blood Money aside from Graphics?

New people to the game would love it. There are a lot of small levels that only have one or 2 ways of doing it. I say hire it boys. Still I fun number but no blood money Phone Post

I miss the straight up hits and equipment selection aspects of the old games, the story on this on really doesn't do it for me.

plus the game "punishes" you for killing NPC's who the game goes out of its way to tempt you to kill...

If you've played the other games in the Hitman series this will likely be a bit of a disappointment, especially it you enjoyed the freedom that Blood Money gave you. After having played about 5-6 hours of this new one I feel like its more of a stealth game then anything. It feels like you spend almost all of you're time crouching behind boxes and sneaking from one place to another. It is difficult to use disguises and as someone stated above you get punished for killing any NPC's besides the target which takes some fun out of it. I can see why reviews for this were so mixed, it's a shame they got a stellar voice cast and you can see their was love poured into the game, they just didn't quite hit the mark on what a true Hitman game is supposed to be.

I think we all know what is coming, there will be dlc that will have the plain hits I bet.
As for this game im enjoying it, but the disguise system is soooo hard! Blood money was unbeatable, so I still rate this game highly Phone Post

They do have contracts mode. Where u play the levels with hits in them. Where you get go pick your load out and have certain targets and requests. But this just feels like a quick fix up. Plus you can make your own contracts but haven't tried that yet. But yes dlc will fix this if they bring out decent contracts Phone Post

This game is awesome. Sure there are some levels that are not as open ended as in the past but most of the contracts are just like in the past.

The Contracts portion is a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to making some of my own.

Got it today and played it for 5 hours straight, love the challenges, gives the story heaps of replay ability. Graphics are pretty good and the controls are perfect IMO, this is the first Hitman I have had on console ( had all the others on Pc) and I found it easy to adapt. I can see why people say it feels a bit stealthy though, still worth the buy IMO Phone Post
