    Come on, they're perfectly usable, you just have to well, use them, unlike the dress and forget approach of later games...

    No, they really aren't in any enclosed space or corridors.

    Broadhead Arrows cause blood pools too. You can freely kill spiders, burricks, etc.

    Well you're supposed to avoid or work around those kind of situations, and keep your distance. Makes sense.

    On the topic of Thief: I really wish there were more good FMs that were about assassinating a target. There was a series of missions in The Dark Mod that was all about assassinating targets and it was super good, but I forgot what it was called now. Might have been Thomas Porter.
    Yeah, nah, not really. That's just a inane limiting factor that makes missions less fun to play, I don't really see the point of disguises if their only use is to be at a distance and maybe sneak in a weapon.

    Um, you can get past the guards bro, just don't look them in the eyes.

    I also never found disguises in Silent Assassin to be a problem. The guards recognizing you if you stick around for too long was realistic.

    Always reminds me of the scene in Heat with Robert de Niro disguised as a hotel guard sneaking past the reception.

    Yes, that's my fuckin point. I like that feature, I just don't like the implementation. In Contracts you could do this exact same thing but your chances of randomly getting detected in an enclosed space is lower, but if you brush against them or stay near them for too long they will still detect you.

    I completed Contracts all SA on expert difficulty. Not professional because I generally do medium first and hardest second. I even got the minigun. It was pretty fun but AI was pretty trash and the game crashed a few times. Buggy too.

    To be fair, I'm not sure they could make 10+ big levels with the graphical fidelity required (to get a budget to begin with, I think) to be a modern AA-ish game.

    Damn I was completely with you about the music, but how can you be a Hitman fan and think the new one sucks?

    Because it... does? To give just one of many, many examples: 47 crouch sneaks as fast as he walks. Sorry but no: if you want to be silent, you have to be slow. Have these devs played JA2 or for that matter Silent Assassin, or to an extent Contracts? It's such a basic thing and a core game mechanic to boot, and they fucked it up. Well fuck them then. I'll just play C47, SA and Contracts again.
