    Well, I REALLY liked that. I was partially excited about this game, but this looks like a very good title in the making.

    I think those new features are welcome, I mean, 47 IS the BEST assassin the WORLD so yeah, he must have some instincts.

    walls.. ha any decent video game character can work around walls. For people obsessed with ‘realism’ gamers would go crazy if they were ever restricted by something as mundane as a wall.

    Looking back at some of the features the game will offer, I liked 47’s ability to predict enemies movements, it only would make sense as Pedro mentioned, but I hope that this won’t make the gameplay as such in Batman were you actually stay in that vision mode half of the game, it was efficient, but didn’t give me, personally, the time to admire the game itself and the environment surrounding.

    @cheeto, i completely agree with you, but from what i could understand the guys were saying those features would be limited depending on difficulty, so i’m guessing playing on hard you might get to do that only every once in a while, while on easy you will be able to use it more often, possibly it will have a counter, or perhaps a “intuition gauge” that gets depleted… who knows!
