It's a tactical game. the pace is the same as the normal RB6 games. Plus it really speeds up on the later levels in San Fran and Settle. Oh well...

I didn't like it at first (playing with randoms) then found a couple guys with mics and actually ended up enjoying it, it's pretty hard and you die too easily but enjoyed the more tactical nature.

Cool story, bro.

And yet I enjoyed just the training of Hitman 3 more than I did 2 hours of R6 Extraction.

can’t remember if I played that one. I really enjoyed the original on PC back in the day but really haven’t liked them much since. Have it downloading for a looksee. 78 gigs is no joke.

I quite enjoy it but am stuck with randoms now because menace-uk- ditched me after two hours

Hitman 3 is fckn' awesome. I had no idea, this is my first in the series.

At first I was playing it like any other action game and was not happy with the stiff controls. Then as I gazed at the title screen and read the displayed message "Welcome to the World of Assassination" it dawned on me that you're not supposed to go in guns blazing because this is a stealth action game.

I'm starting to get it, sneaking and disguises are the way to go. If spotted doing something you're not supposed to its best to hide and/or change your disguise. Now I'm making serious progress but can't help repeating missions to complete all the challenges and get more familiar with the levels.

you can go in guns blazing all you. You won’t score has much XP but it’s also loads of fun to walk right up to a target and shoot them in the face in front of everyone and then battle your way out.

There's so much variety, I usually just take my time going through the level first, discovering opportunities and seeing what I can do then kind of let it happen naturally, then I'll usually do another playthrough and check out the mission stories, challenges etc.

Kind of agree with this in regards to how hard it can be. Basically you have a set amount of health that you cannot get back once it's gone...however, you can get health boosted which will run down over time back to your current health status. These health pickups can be hard to find and in many cases only a couple of hits take you down so tread with caution! There are operators that can give health (Doc, Finka), but it's limited by number of times or ability refresh and you can develop a stim to help with that as well...but still is pretty difficult even with that in mind. Ultimately, I find a stealthier approach is best in this game. Going guns blazing in this is not the way...lol. I actually ran out of ammo for both guns and got killed once which was odd as ammo drops are usually not so sparse. It sucks when your guy "dies" and is not extracted by your team (which essentially means captured) as it limits your options for the next round...but it's kind of fun to try and rescue them...which is it's own mini-game that really needs coordination with your teammates to complete. When your guys is extracted, they will come back online but with reduced health capacity which is particularly punishing IMO.

Overall, this game (R6 Extraction) is actually deeper than I thought but can be frustrating as well. Definitely growing on me though. My son loves it and has unlocked all of the main maps...he's probably played 20+ hours at this point.
