Hitman 4: Blood Money is a good game. I enjoy it immensely. But I’ve been enjoying it a whole lot less these past few times I played it, because the Mississippi steamboat level has crashed randomly 2 times in a row. Crashes in Hitman 4 are a whole lot more frustrating than crashes in any other game because Hitman’s saves aren’t permanent! When the game crashes, all your mission progress is lost! Last time it happened, I was in the process of killing the last of 7 targets when the game went down. An hour and a half of play straight out the window! Including one extremely painstaking kill that took me 8 (count ‘em!) tries to do perfectly because I didn’t want to alert anybody.
To vent my frustrations, I opened the game again and loaded up the mission armed to the teeth. I killed… everyone. But it didn’t make me feel any better.
