Hitman GO for iOS - a 3D boardgame

[Video Link] The graphics for Hitman GO are beautiful. I have not played it yet. Can someone who has please review it in the comments? Is it worth $5, plus all the in-app purchases required to move to the next chapters?
Hitman GO is a turn-based puzzle game where you will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies, infiltrate well-guarded locations and take out your target on beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces.

  1. Even if it is pretty, I really doubt it's worth confirming to big gaming that it's profitable to hold back three quarters of the game to sell as 'dlc'.

    Five dollars for the first chapter, then a dollar each for the other three chapters, not to mention the paid hint system and a walkthrough that costs twice as much as the actual gameplay. sheesh.

    If it was two bucks a chapter, it would be marginally less scummy.

  2. IAP is here to stay unless people start paying a more reasonable price up front for mobile games. Asking for a full and complete game that someone worked on for months for $3 is almost an insult. These aren't stupid little puzzle games that someone tossed together in a weekend, yet they are priced like them, which is why developers are forced to make up the difference in IAP.

    I would be a lot happier if the games got more expensive, but dumped IAPs entirely. Maybe have a free or very cheap demo version, and a full priced regular game.
