I like how people are judging the FULL game based on 15 minutes of gameplay, i'm sure it won't be like this throughout the entire game. I personally don't see anything wrong with it, looks good to me.
Why do you think developers release videos, you doofus/bozo/bimbo/nincompoop? To give people an impression of the game. You're implying that the actual game is going to be better than this. Well then why show off the shittiest part? Plus, it's not like the video doesn't say a lot about the fundamental gameplay (ie the shitty Arkham Asylum detective mode and the scripted, 'cinematic' nature of the whole thing).

What's the point in calling it Hitman then? The problem I have is that every series is starting to become the same. This game and Splinter Cell: Conviction look almost like the exact same thing, whereas, say, SC: Chaos Theory and Hitman: Blood Money were extremely different from one another, and both were incredible.Well obviously they retain some shadows of their former selves. Making a game more accessible doesn't mean that it loses everything that made people like it in the first place. Going back to Morrowind vs. Oblivion, it's obvious to see the connection between the two (ignoring the 'Elder Scrolls' brand), despite the changes.
Comparing SC: Conviction as well. I'd never played a Splinter Cell game before Conviction and thought it was really good, had a blast playing it and re-played through to get all the challenges done and didn't get bored at all. Afterwards, I tried playing Double Agent but just couldn't get into it. I know a lot of people said that Conviction was the worst in the series but from the way I see things, it was a great game.
Soon there will be nothing to play if you don't wanna play the umpteenth FPS, cover shooter or wagglan party game.There's plenty of developers that want to fit this easy marketing mould but there are still developers dedicated to making an original and unique game that will always blow the generic titles out of the water.
I've tried to come up with an eloquent, reasonable response to your post, but the fact of the matter is that you simply wouldn't understand how I feel about this despite anything I say. I'm not going to list exactly how and why what is shown in the video is a complete disappointment to a Hitman fan (IrishGun summed it up quite well in a previous post). I'm simply going to say that you don't know what it's like for a beloved series of games of yours being gutted, raped etc etc, all the while getting flak for not taking off nostalgia goggles or some other inane shit. Seriously, fans of old series are some of the most mistreated people in gaming. Not only do we have to watch our beloved series get ruined and see CoD kiddies flock to it, we also have to take shit for it on internet forums and even from gaming 'journalists' and game developers.
Judging from your experiences with the Splinter Cell series (liking Conviction but not DA), I'd guess that you're an action gamer. So I'm assuming that seeing a beloved series ruined has never been a problem for you (correct me if I'm wrong), since every developer and publisher is trying to cater to you nowadays. Try to put yourself into the shoes of people who want to play true stealth games, like the earlier Splinter Cell and Hitman games, or a more hardcore RPG, like Morrowind (as opposed to baby's first RPG that is Oblivion).
I'm being incoherent here. I hope you can get what I'm saying, and I'm sure you'll have some shitty 'objective' arguments to throw at me.
