Been playin this lately. Right now I'm the #6 richest Assassin in the United States in Contracts mode. Not too far off top 3 tbh.
Anyone having much fun with this game? Imo, it's a lot better than Dishonored. I was very disappointed in that game after the novelty of the Blink spell wore off.
My main issue with Hitman so far is that I hate the Splinter Cell/Metal Gear-like filler missions where you have to sneak through areas littered with guards and have no targets to deal with. Those feel like a dumb side chore you have to play through to get back to the actual game of assassinating people. I can understand it in some cases (like how Hitman: Contracts starts and ends, it's like a cool scenerio), but they do it every single mission at least once, if not 2-3 times.
Played the prologue and did a few of the featured contracts, seems really fun. I've read complaints though like disguises are too easy to get caught in, don't know if that's on higher difficulties or on every difficulty, though. I'm playing on normal, if I really enjoy this game I'll probably do a second playthrough on hard. Contracts looked pretty fun, shame you couldn't pick to mark Lol.
You can when you create contracts. You walk around, can mark targets, and choose how you want people to have to kill them to complete the contract.
As for disguises. . .well, only people with the same disguise as you can "see through it", plus you have to make sure you aren't tresspassing or doing something dumb like walk around waving a gun as you move, or have a big fire axe in your hands. . .or be dragging a body.
