Hitman: Blood Money Demo

As promised (story), the playable demo for Hitman: Blood Money is now available, offering the chance to deal out some death in IO Interactive's assassination sequel without parting with any of your own blood money. Word is: "Death of a Showman is the first level of the game and provides both newbies and long-time Hitman fans a refresher course in the mechanics of being the world’s deadliest contract killer while tracking your target through a dilapidated theme park turned drug lab. Get a sneak peak at the incredible new graphic engine, ultra-realistic AI, and try out a few of Agent 47’s new moves." The download debuted on GameSpot (registration required) and Download.com and mirrors can be found on 3D Downloads, 3D Gamers, 4players.de, Computer Games, eXtreme Players, Gamer's Hell, VGPRO, and Worthplaying.

Sorry I made a mistake... Didn't know the game hadn't hit shelves yet and just assumed that it had. Note I never said I pirated it that was put out there by others.

Sidenote: The demo features the first level which in my opinion was the worst of all the levels. If I only had the first level to go by I wouldn't even purchase the game. The goodies are only later in the game redneck wedding, playboy cave mansion, childs birthday party in the suburbs. Fun stuff.

Posting information about pirated games is just asking for trouble, "free speech" or not. This is a game discussion forum anyway and not a piracy or 'where did you get the game' forum. It's unnecessary and can potentially cause problems to say you pirated something so why do it?

Moral police?
Do you not speed?
You always obey the law?

Grab a kit kat and take a break.

Why I will "try before I buy":
Does it work on my machine? Yes.
Cool, I am going to go pick it up.

I can return parts for my car if they don't fit.
I can return lawn equipment if I don't need it.
All the tools I buy, I can return if it doesn't work for it's intended purpose.
I always listen to a friends CD or go to the CD ripmeoffwarehouseofchoice and sample a CD before I buy it.
I take a car for a test drive before I purchase.
If it is a console game, I go to ripoffwarehouseofchoice and have them open a game so I can try it before I buy it.

If a company doesn't release a demo for me to try, I will gladly locate a copy of the game, try it, make sure it works, then go buy it.

Is that illegal? Probabably - but come after me. I am not afraid.
For the amount of money most of us spend on games, it is ludacris to expect us to shell out 30-60 bux a game for it not to work, and not be able to return it.

To get aroudn that?
Release a demo first.

Edit: one week to launch: http://www.ebgames.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=646266

I don't even know why people have to say where they got the game. If you pirated it, I don't care, there's no reason to say you did unless you think it makes you look cool or smart or something.

I bought 1, 2, and Contracts...

Contracts was so shitty I said I'd never buy another Hitman game without trying it out first. So of course when I saw Bloodmoney out on torrent of course I got it. And I am extremely pleased... So now I will buy it. No review could ever convince me more than an actual play test. So yes I will buy it and the purchase only comes from me playing the pirate.

Venom I'm not going to nitpick the game but I do think this is the best iteration of Hitman we've seen... AND GOD THE GRAPHICS, not that I care about graphics though.

Why not just wait and read some reviews?

I'm, for the most part, beyond having to buy the game the day it comes out. Especially if it's going to suck. Or just wait for the demo. I may be incorrect, but there are quite a few games that are releasing demos first. As opposed to 3 years ago when you couldn't find a decent demo until 6 months after the game was released.

Freedom of speech asshole.

I buy games I like once I try them out. Oblivion, Splinter Cell Chaos, Doom3. I have a TON of games that I buy, bins full. However, due to games sucking and the hype machine AND the inability to return open product AND the usual lack of a demo prior to the game release, I will download full versions to ensure I do indeed enjoy the game.

I for one do NOT think it's fair for the hype machine to try and goad me into buying a game that underdelivers. What is that old saying, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me?

If I could fully return a game, or even rent a PC game, I would go that route. Since I cannot, piracy, to me, is legitamate.

Same goes for music. Why pay full price blindly going into a products due to hearing one song on the radio or net only to realize the rest of the album sucks nuts?

That's fair?

Nope.

Maybe you'll like it, then maybe you're one of those that just downloaded the recent Sin game?

Yeah..I was one of those people and I was supremely dissapointed with it. But then, there really isn't much comparison between Hitman and SiN either. I liked the last game pretty well (though no doubt it could've been better).

I guess this is your first run with the Hitman series?

First off
1. In first person view the hitman draws a weapon with a stiff, straight out pointed, unyielding arm. This type of graphic "expertise" was done around Doom1 and System Shock It looks terrible.

2. The enemy AI is just crap. Not only do they just run at you, but the thugs move together, same movements. Blow up the crack room where the black girls in bathing suits are (which makes NO sense btw). They all duck, move, and yell the exact same thing. Basically it is attack of the clones!

3.The environments look ok, very static and you cannot interact with them.

I still think Hitman 2 was and is the best. Please try the demo before buying. Yes it is all over BT and has been for about or sligthly over a week. It isn't worth the full game download unless you go with a Newsgroup such as I. I deleted the game straight away since there was no demo, and after playing the full, I just wasn't interested.

Just try the demo and you'll see. Maybe you'll like it, then maybe you're one of those that just downloaded the recent Sin game?

I'm about 8-9 missions in on Blood Money and it's amazing. Waay better than the previous three games. Tons of awesome locals and enemies. The upgrading guns with money is a cool addition but I don't use guns since I'm a silent assasin. All my kills are accidents. At the end of every mission a front page newspaper article is generated which in a "news" like fashion reveals your shots, witnesses, stealth etc statistics.

Ex:
"Police found 2 shell casings but witnesses heard no gunshots supporting the theory that the pistol was silenced and this was done by a professional."

or

"Police judging by the casings and bulletholes estimate 30 shots were fired in the rampage probably by a custom silverballer.

wow theyre still making this game? I got bored about 5 mins into the demo of the 1st one..

Then we can make some assumptions about you (check all that apply):
1. No imagination
2. No problem solving skills
3. Need a very linear game to have fun
4. Can't think across more than one plain
5. All of the above
