Completed on the hardest setting with difficulty hardcore/hardcore with all objectives and nearly all the loot
An excellent and very different mission
The most difficult parts -
Getting out of the cell at the start - that took a fair bit of thinking
Getting upstairs in the mansion - there are one heck of a lot of people wandering about apparently at random
A couple of minor points related to the stats at the end
Spoiler

One final point - I don't know if it was this mission or a TDM glitch or just one of those things but my screen after finishing the game was significantly lighter also the colour balance seemed to have changed
I just remembered I did have a crash but didn't notice the change before I restarted
I had to log off and log on again to get it back to normal

Hey, this is really cool. My favorite aspect is the atmosphere: the sounds and visuals, lighting, etc.

Thanks for another fun mission. I've already completed it twice.

Finished in 58 minutes... 8 stealth score, 15 loot short of max, and all objectives on hardest difficulty. Only had 1 body discovery somehow
Spoiler


Very good. Everything is hinted at well. I liked the automatons. Very steampunk-borg like in their design. Some of the areas were rough to sneak through (trying to get upstairs...) but overall very well balanced. First time I actually used mines in Dark Mod, too, I'm sure. The gas mines worked well with the expert difficulty objectives.

Played through again and this time without creating any major alarms

Playing on Hardcore/hardcore is extremely difficult as you need to creep past anybody sleeping as crouching makes too much noise

An assassination mission done perfectly - I like the implications of some of the journals you read, what they say about the main character, and how it calls the central premise into question. Bravo! This really looked nice, too, and I liked how exploiting the AI's tendencies became more about stalking prey, rather than pure avoidance. Very Hitman-esque.

I'd have preferred more readables, but what little I saw was brilliantly written and wove themselves into the plot fairly well - favorite bit was the wife's journal.

Is this the start of a new series of assassin missions? If so, gimme more :D
