        yeah but just wait for a sale for hitman 3 and get all legacy dlc shit for it. you can play all the maps from 1, 2, and 3 in it and have the whole trilogy in one game.

          Just finished the trilogy yesterday and it was a great experience. The 3rd game was a little disappointing though. The new games are way more sandboxy and open ended than thw older games so if that'a your thing go with the new games straight away.

            bro it has perfect map size and some added setpieces, like club shootout or vidal confrontation are nice additions.

          Can I play the campaigns of 1 and 2 in 3?

            yup, that's why you should wait for a sale of the 3, but you need to pay with the DLC otherwise you'll just have the 3

            Yes that's what I did. You need to get the version that gives you access to all 3 games though.
            Also don't worry about the dlc maps yet unless they're on sale. They are good but way overpriced compared to what you get in the base game.

            Didn't like the scripted events and the last map was the worst of all 3 games. For me 1st game>2nd>3rd. The Darkmoor Manor map is incredible though.

              Last maps in hitman games are usually "all guns blazing" types.
              >muh 5 maps then!
              In that case h2 also has 5 maps. Since New Zealand map is basically a tutorial

                Maybe but it made the ending very anticlimatic. You spend all 3 games trying to get to this guy and make him pay for all the fucked up things he did and in the end you get a super linear level with 0 choices on how to take him down.
                Compare that to the Hokkaido map of the first game which was an incredible level with so many ways to take down the bad guy.

          Isn't there a Hitman 1-3 collection already? No need to fiddle around with buying DLC packs separately.

            It's missing the 1GOTY/2GOLD/3DLC, the extra shit.

            Also instead of buying 1 and 2 access passes, you can buy the old versions, claim them in H3 then refund them

        For the new ones, go d/l the free launcher versions, sometimes listed as demos. They have 2 fully-functional maps in the prologue campaign. If you can't milk hours out of those then the rest of the trilogy isn't worth it since it's all the same thing in different flavors

        Oh yeah, definitely. I got 3 and the expansion pack for the other two when it was on sale a little bit back, and it's definitely worth the value. Might fuck about and get the DLC if it's on sale again.

        Man, I went and got sniper assassin on every map for the x17 unlock before I knew you could spawn with one if you took a briefcase. RIP

    Blood Money or Contracts, come back to earlier games if you have the patience

    ™2 would have been damn near the perfect game if they didn't waste time on sniper maps and made more stuff like Patient Zero. Haven Island was begging for a nighttime bonus mission, but I guess the consolation prize was Ambrose. ™3 went to sleep after Chongqing, but it along with Dartmoor and Berlin were absolute bangers.

    Don't serum yourself unless you played C47, but yeah I would expect the Constant to have had some super base instead of a train, but they're probably saving the super villain super base type shit for the James Bond game which had better have driving sections with an Aston full of gadgets.

    Start with Blood Money. If you start with any of the earlier ones than that, you'll just be put off by their extreme clunkiness. BM is the sweet spot with the soul of the older games but the refinement of the later ones.

    2016 is a good place to start, once you know you enjoy the formula you can always go back and play the older games.
    Some of them have aged well, and others really haven't, you'd be surprised.

    Silent Assassin -> Contracts -> Blood Money -> Nu-Hitman Trilogy (free on Game Pass)

    C47 has aged pretty bad so ignonre it and Absolution is basically a Hitman spin-off that is very different from the style of other games. I guess you can try out Absolution after all other games if you still want some more Hitman stuff.

    >nuhitman trilogy

    either way the nuhitman games are unironically the best but the old ones are great too for different reasons
