Hitman: Absolution discussion

IGN gave it a 9/10, Gameinformer a 8.75/10, OXM a 9/10. Comes out in 2 days, pretty excited. Going to be the first time I played a Hitman game too.

I'm pumped as fuck for this. And it is also going to be my first Hitman game.

Rock, Paper & Shotgun gave it a pretty bad review - "Disappointing, makes me wanna install Blood Money."

Haven't watched TB's video, and since I haven't played it myself, I can't say anything more.

We'll see Tuesday. The cosmos is fucking around by making the all-hyped-up broke-ass me order the game just a while before rotten reviews from two of the few sites whose opinion I value surface.

But, fuck it. Still hyped. HITMAN.

Haha, well, I hope the game is better than RPS perceives it. (I suggest reading the whole thing, though, I just skimmed through)

Look out for GiantBomb's review once it comes out (I guess soon).

I've read some pretty good reviews for it, might pick it up when it drops in price though. Haven't played a Hitman game since Hitman 2 though.

Pretty interesting variation in the review section. 5/10, 7/10, 7.5/10 and 9/10. I just don't get why they gave eagle vision to Agent 47, seriously, he's just a man with no superpowers.

Re: Hitman: Absolution discussion
PC version looks to be averaging the lowest scores so far. Maybe those people have higher standards or something. I would like to like this game, but the entire series has been up and down to me.

Re: Hitman: Absolution discussion
I could never get into the previous Hitman games. I found the gameplay in general to be too clunky, too hit and miss, and the story, as well as Agent 47 himself, weren't engaging enough for me. I could never really tell when a certain tactic I was adopting (say, the donning of a particular disguise) was working or not, and when I finally made a hit, I couldn't determine whether it was due to skill or sheer luck.

But I've just watched a positive review of the game, and as a lover of stealth titles (Thief II - nuff said), I really like the look of Absolution. The graphics and the locales look gorgeous, I like the fact that Agent 47 has been made more human, and hence, more interesting, and the action looks badass. I might pick this title up.

Oh, and nuns with guns, man. Seriously. Nuns with guns and freaking rocket launchers.
