I just played the Patient Zero mission (in other words, the last mission of the Patient Zero dlc) and man, what a disappointment. I heard it was the only mission with an interesting twist on it, so I though it would be the highlight of the DLC, but actually it’s worse than any normal mission, imo. There is a virus spreading around, that basically don’t allow you to play it exploring the location with calm.
Basically, it is bad as railroads you in three options:
-Doing a speedrun of the mission, before the infection spreads. It can’t be done until you learn from memory some things, so it isn’t really an option at first. Nor I like doing speedruns on Hitman.
-Doing a " kill’em all " resolution to the mission. Again, not the thing I play Hitman for.
-Stopping the infection from spreading. This could have been a good point, having a extra objective or two that are randon in each run, and having to kill them against a time limit. The problem is that they aren’t random, it’s always the same nurse in the same point of the map on the same specific moment, and the infection is instantaneous so you can’t plan the kill, you aren’t left time for that, if you don’t kill her in a moment the infection spreads to 30 targets in a pair of inutes. You basically are left without options except the predetermined ones.
So the solution is to be in that specific location, in that specific time, to kill a specific target, or you have to use any of the other two first methods.
