Conan Obrien's very funny review video

Wait - So Xbox and PS3 versions so far are getting 9's and 10's ? I guess the PC version got the shaft on this one.

I am curious though how they described the gameplay. If it still preserved the same formula from its predecessors.

In the the GTA V issue of GameInformer, Hitman scored an 8.75. I'd say that's a good score. Still, can't wait to take a stab at this when I snag it this Tuesday.

Also, IGN mentioned that review embargo will be lifted this Sunday. Expect more then. :)

This does look pretty awesome. The environments are so detailed and immersive, judging from a recent live demo I watched on IGN.

Any word on the length? I only ask because Dog Days was so short, but I don't think they'd allow themselves to skimp on their most beloved property.

I heard here and there that the main story is around 12 hours, though, by the looks of it, the Contracts mode looks to multiply that.

12 is good for me. As long as it's around 8-10, I'm usually good with that. It's just that Dog Days was criminally short.

Square has been on a roll lately publishing Deus Ex: HR, Sleeping Dogs, and now this. Good times.

Someone said 20 hours. Okay looks like I'm not gonna cancel the preorder, plus I already sold BO2 for $50. Eventhough all these reviews are posting IGN is holding theirs until Sunday ? Who decides the embargos the developer right ?

Yea these Conan reviews are just straight golden make sure you watch with the link the OP left. At the end he said it was the favorite game that he reviewed and he did Skyrim & REs Evil, but again he doesn't like games. The funniest things was the long walkthru the devs did on that one level on youtube with the 50's gang guys as the target they did it all stealth super cool how the devs did that level of course, and Conan just blew up the carthe second the level opened up and killed two of the targets...suttle and priceless.

The Sniper Challenge was just a game stop thing ? I never got anything from newegg. I wonder if it will be in game as well.

Nope. That was a gamestop preorder exclusive.

Chris94 says:
Not 20 hours, but everyone will best the game in a different length since you can be stealthy and take your time to set up the perfect kill or just go on a rampage and finish the mission quick.
From the reviews i read they are saying 12-15 hours plus you got this game mode called contracts that you can make your own missions.

It was just an gamestop thing but I bought it on eBay for $4. It was nothing special.

I agree Broncos BUT it unlocks things throughout the game that was the point as far as I understood.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 16, 2012 12:15:04 PM PST
Gameinformer review said it took him a little over 20 hrs to beat but like you said i'm sure that can change depending upon how you play it.

You guys that haven't seen the walkthrus the full level walkthrus the devs did it's on youtube it's impressive.

It took me almost 3 weeks to beat Blood Money. But I was being as sneaky as possible. After I beat a mission the sneaky way then I replay the mission and screw around. I like to try to kill every single NPC in a level (without being caught). That river boat level in Blood Money is a good one to try and do that with.
