The first mission was too action-y for my taste, but the later parts when Agent 47 was sneaking out of the apartments in a cop uniform and having to look AWAY from the police as he went down the stairs and into the lift, etc, seemed a lot closer to the old game style, right down to him leaving the building and walking across the street to a train station (which by the way, the new crowd system is amazing, there were soo many peds on screen we actually lost sight of Agent 47 when the camera pulled back).
Eagle Vision is unneeded, the effect is cool as all the sound FX drowns out and you hear vinyl crackles and the picture goes all grainy as it highlights a path an enemy will be taking, but for a Hitman game, it still seems out of place.
Graphics, it takes a lot from Kane & Lynch 2, now, before you bad mouth that, the atmosphere and effect used to depict Shanghai were some of the best any game has done this generation, so it's good those effects are being used here without the YouTube filter, and just soo many small effects like dust falling on Agent 47's suit staying there, and wet patches from the rain, etc.
