You've run out of juice. Pretty lame.

You need to look up the meaning of the terms "opinion" and "twist the truth". You also lack critical reading skills. I'm not about to waste my time responding to all of the idiotic 'points' you made because any person with a couple of brain cells can see how you are wrong.
Because I'm nice, I'll give you 1 example:
"Oh, really? I guessed you missed the target in Shaving Lenny where you had the option to electrocute him or push him into a pool of sulphuric acid and both accident points were at each end of his patrol. Or the option to kill the King of Chinatown by blowing up his car or disguising as his drug dealer and poisoning the dope. Oh, yeah, you couldn't plan anything in Absolution."
Now I wasn't talking about planning on how to kill a target. I was talking about moving from point A to point B. Get it?
If you honestly have this much trouble reading/understanding a written work and forming a cohesive argument in response, you will fail the SAT/ACT or any standardized test requiring you to think.
P.S.: Nowhere did I say I want a remake/sequel of anything.
What about your statement where you started talking in context of the disguise system to put down the X-Ray vision, i.e., avoiding the yellow glowing people, as that was due to the flawed disguise system, and had nothing to do with the X-Ray vision because if it had Blood Money's disguise system you wouldn't need to worry?
Let's go, Mr. Einstein, Mr. reading comprehension, let's see you take a stab at that one and just push aside the simple cop-outs for the moment.
"Now I wasn't talking about planning on how to kill a target. I was talking about moving from point A to point B. Get it?" No. I don't. I don't think anyone knows what the hell you're talking about.
OMG! What a sorry excuse for a cop-out.
How's this for "critical reading"? Since the topic is about the X-Ray vision don't speak in context of the disguise system or anything that has nothing to do with it. Can you read that critically?
Don't get mad at me for your inability to comprehend. Any answer I give will just confuse you, then you'll write a diatribe on something that I didn't imply/say.
lol some people cant read
Sorry to bump an old thread, but for the sake of "just in case the devs read this far" I'd like to add my 2 cents about Instinct.
It's a cheap and detracting system. I moved through Absolution on Expert (I like having saves) but only ever used Instinct once, and that was in the intro when I was forced to.
Obviously everybody takes something different out of each game, and what they like about Hitman is going to be subjective. However, I believe for the majority of people, a lot of the fun in the old games derives from exploring the environment, experimenting with different methods, and pulling off a clean hit and moving on before anyone knows. You do not get that experience if you have a system like Instinct that holds your hand and points everything out for you. I don't want to see NPC's through walls and I don't want highlighted objects that remind me I'm in a game - a terrible thing to do. I want to move over to something while thinking to myself "can I use that?"
I like the map that shows everybody and their movements on it, sure it's not realistic but it works, and it's fun. My favourite title is Contracts, and I think they should ditch the Instinct system and move back to that similar style for disguises. If you change clothes, you should be able to move freely with the access that disguise gives you, as long as you don't get right in an NPC's face for too long, or do anything suspicious like pull a fire alarm right in front of them.
I think Absolution was a brilliant stealth game, but it's not the right kind of stealth for this franchise, IMO. I really hope Instinct is ditched for the old "hide in plain sight" stealth.
On harder difficulties you could only see the targets from the map and the fear of getting busted while looking at the map was present. If I'd get to decide, I would too ditch Instinct and get the unrealistic-but-still-awesome satellite map back. Or at least an option to play the game TOTALLY WITHOUT INSTINCT without it breaking the game. That means no need to use instinct in groups or disguises. Rubbing the back of your head makes you look only more suspicious, not the other way around. The disguise system in BM was forgiving, yes, but also a lot better compared to what we saw in Absolution.
Seeing guards and their paths is just overpowered. I think IO was trying to get rid of the "Trial&Error" style of play, of which many people complained about. But I think that's what Hitman was mostly about: Observing, Planning, Executing. If failing, repeat. The feeling when you got away without anyone having the slightest clue was the most rewarding experience I've had in videogames. And I don't want no superpowers making my day easier.
Also, for example, in the game Tomb Raider, your forced to stand still while using their version of Instinct. The added difficulty is that you have to pull a full 360 to scan your surroundings. With the map, you have a top-down view so everything is displayed for you in one dimension. I don't know if you've played Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. That game also has an Instinct-like method of displaying NPC's, except you have to first tag an enemy before he shows up on the radar. That means that some NPC's do not show up and they can spot you, so you have to be extra aware. And you have to move quietly and undetected while silently taking down enemies and it's hard. It's not a breezy walk through the park like you would imagine.
Every last 3rd person game that has come out in the past 2 years has used to the same Instinct-like system to display NPC's, from Assassins Creed, to The Last of US, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Solid V, and so on. Why? Technical advancement maybe. It's the next logical step to progress in. A radar map is cheap. Especially when you have to back out to a different screen. The only reason they used a map in the first place is because they didn't have the technical capabilities to do something else. The argument that a map screen adds tension doesn't hold water. The added tension is so subtle and the NPC's are so slow and predictable that it amounts to a waste of time more than anything else. And the fact that with Instinct your forced to scan your surroundings in 360 degrees cancels that out. Plus, there are many ways to balance out the tension for Instinct, like making the NPC's smarter, quicker, more shaky and less predictable.
If I made the next Hitman, I would use Instinct to display NPC's, except I wouldn't use a complete silhouette of an NPC, I would just highlight the sound vibrations he made that echo from his feet and anywhere else he makes noise. That way you wouldn't know if it was a person or a rodent. And the potency of the Instinct would be based on location. If you're in a quiet forest, you can see every single sound wave, but if you're in a Mardi Gras parade, every sound wave would cancel each other out.
Or maybe they should just ditch Instinct and the map altogether and just play the entire game by ear, with realistic sound effects. Of course, the background music (Jesper Kyd) might cause a problem.
The point is, the overview map is cheap and primitive and we need to move forward. I think people are just being conservative because they were so disappointed with Absolution.
I'm pretty sure IO could've pulled it off if they wanted. Games like Jedi Knight had a force power that let you see through walls and they came out around 2003.The only reason they used a map in the first place is because they didn't have the technical capabilities to do something else.
You know what I don't like. It's the constant interruption in game play to stop everything I'm doing to look at a map. The zoom never stays the same you have to keep switching out and refocusing every single time. If it's a floor above me that's even more buttons I have to press. I like tension but if I have to work extra hard to achieve it I'd rather not have it. They are both forms of cheating and if I have to choose I'll go with the least annoying one. They should have both forms of radar, which can be selected in the options menu.
Map > seeing through walls.
There's a bullet for everyone.. And a time.. And a place..
Start at 2:55 and you'll see.
I never had this problem but I play Hitman games on the PC (except for Absolution).The zoom never stays the same you have to keep switching out and refocusing every single time. If it's a floor above me that's even more buttons I have to press. I like tension but if I have to work extra hard to achieve it I'd rather not have it.
Instinct > seeing through roofs.
the instinct system needs to be abandoned
