That looks like the most uninteresting game I've ever seen, I thought they said it would be an authentic hit man experience?

I refuse to buy soft launch games. This is my new policy. I HATE feeling excluded.

Wow, I was remaining optimistic that this might not be crap, but yeah...this looks like the most boring, dull take on a Hitman game possible.

I am with you on this. I know all the arguments for it but it makes my blood boil when I see it. I don't however have the courage of my convictions when it does go global, so I'll probably still pick it up. But still

It looks like it could be ok gameplay-wise but I have to agree that it's a massive mis-use of the Hitman licence. 3rd person stealth and board games don't tend to go hand in hand.

That said, I have no idea where the hostility towards soft launches has come from. Early Access is a common occurance and no one is forcing you to buy it before it releases officially. Besides, every game is tested within a closed environment of some form - if you hate being excluded then I'm afraid it's happened to you with almost every game made.

I agree i dont see the hate with soft launches, just 'pretend' its out not out yet for a few weeks. If they released it worldwide with major issues/bugs/server problems people would be moaning like anything.

I'm fine with soft launches, think they're a good idea, you can do all the testing you want but until that game launches worldwide you dont have a real idea of how your servers etc might respond. Safer this way

I mean hate IAP's or timers fair enough !! But soft launches ? Totally fine

As for this game, with the Hitman name attached to it i was expecting so much more, does look really bad
