For today only, 7/4, Hitman: Blood Money is only $14.99 on Xbox Games on Demand. I've been wanting to get this game for awhile after hearing Cheapy and the Giant Bomb crew rave about it.

Sorry if this is a repost.

We actually have a "Mega Thread" for all Xbox Live related sales.

Don't worry though, it's an excellent deal for an excellent game.

I keep trying to play Hitman but I'm absolutely atrocious. I have no subtlety whatsoever in real life and somehow it carries over into my gameplaying. I never made it past the

level.

there is a hitman HD collection in the works. I would just wait for that. it will probably be around $30 for all three titles.

No problem.

"I have not played this game since 2006, and I was only in my teens, and my father had to purchase it for me because I was underage. If I remember correctly, it was stolen from me at school before I could let my friend borrow it. I remember it having very difficult levels that I most definitely should have played on easy, I was just to naive at the time to realize it. If I feel like partaking it it again soon, I will probably buy it from GameStop, as I do not like the time it takes to download with my internet connection."

Phew! It was difficult, but I did it!

I just watched a video review of it and it reminds me too much of Kayne and Lynch. I'm sure it's better, but I can wait till the new one comes out to dive into the series.

That's what I'm thinking now after playing the demo. It just wasn't it for me, I may have liked it if I played back in 06.

Nice. I was thinking about getting into the series and picking up the PS2/xbox versions used on Amazon. I guess I'll just wait now. Thanks for the heads up!

You should be arrested just for comparing Hitman to Kane and Lynch.

I played this a few weeks ago (I played the whole game) and if you enjoy stealth games, don't play the demo, buy the game. The controls are less than spectacular BUT the game, once you learn how to play, is AMAZING. The demo will, almost undoubtedly, not show why this game is great. Even after playing the first two levels (and especially the first level) I was ready to call it terrible and quit, but about 3-4 levels in you learn why the game is so great.


As the disc version is very hard to get and I think they keyboard mouse controls are even worse, I would suggest you get the XBL version.

I am not sure anyone using this site should use the word "nerd" in a derogatory way. Even if you think you are not a nerd, you most likely are...just own it.

This game is ancient. $15 seems a bit on the pricey side, especially since several other oldies have recently been on sale on XBL for 4-5 bucks.

Why is it that the disc version is so difficult to find? Just how rare is this thing?

On a sidenote, pretty good game but dear Lord it can be difficult to pass some of those levels. I always get caught dragging bodies around or for some magical reason enemies see through my sneaky ruses like they are assassin-seeking missiles.

Hitman is also about $70 new.

Is this the one where you have to sneak in a kids birthday party to assassinate his father? I' can't remember if it was this one or Contracts but I remember having a ton of fun back in the day.

Never played the series. Not super nuts about stealth games, but the consensus here is that it's great. Someone sway me I'm thinking about "pulling the trigger" before midnight.

Definitely seems it but when you compare to all other places it's never dropped much below the $20 price point. I've never seen it as low as $15 before (not saying it's never happened, just never seen it personally).

Why is it that the disc version is so difficult to find? Just how rare is this thing?

Quick search has it for sale at GS, Amazon, and GoHastings. All used though or for an outrageous price new. New does seem to be pretty rare.

If you like Splinter Cell, you'll probably like Hitman. Probably the closest comparison I can think of right now.
