So I just got to the Rosewood level in Hitman where all of the thugs take over the orphanage. The thugs slaughtered a bunch of nuns and yet, if you open fire on them the game penalizes you for it? That just seems like a really bad choice. I love stealth as much the next guy but this is a level where they should have taken away the punishment for killing "non-target civilians" or whatever it is they called it given the circumstances because playing through with stealth is pretty unsatisfying when the whole orphanage is getting shot up.
IO was off their game with the latest Hitman game. They were not ready to handle HD power, that is why they were still making excuses about somehow needing even more power for a Hitman game after it's release.
Instead of admitting their design mismanagement of the project, they make shallow excuses related to power.
