Ray, im sure they released a fix for that. I had a different problem. It installed and everything, but the movies were so jerky they were pretty much unwatchable. It's the first game that has ever given me this problem. Loads of others have the same problem as well. The Tech Support on the Illusionsoft forums is a joke so I gave up trying to fix it. A shame, I loved the first H&D.
Hitman 1 was the best by far imo. Much better missions (Tradition of the trade is a classic) & much better hits with more realism and personality about them. heh I remember steaming some dude in the sauna. He could have been doing one of 5 other things. 2 sucked in comparison and this one aint much better than 2 from what I hear.
sin had a great demo....shame it was the only good part of the full game eh? oh well, still better than red faction and monolith games apart from the two NOLF games which are the GROOVIEST games ever. The chick being cool is just a bonus.
man, Looking Glass were my favorite developer ever alongside BlackIsle. No-one made games with the quality those two developers sprinkled on their products.
(BTW - I crossed Thief 3 off this list after seeing DX:IW. Anyone else disagree this will be "streamlined" as well?)
I don't. After seeing all the movies it seems so easy to kill people. YOU'RE A THIEF NOT AN EXPERT SWORDSMAN FOR FUCKS SAKE, MAKE IT HARDER!! Hopefully it will have the options like Thief 1 & 2 did where changing the difficulty will make a big difference to the gameplay objectives but I doubt it seeing how its being made for console. Hopefully it will be a classic but I dont have high hopes.
I had it when it came out and it sucked. My system is a 1.2ghz athlon, geforce 4ti4200, 256mb. I tried a few games including Return to castle wolfenstein and it ran horribly under XP compared to 98. Anyway last I heard, 98se still has much better performance than xp especially for mid to low end systems like mine.
