s many of the assassinations you perform are pre-determined cutscenes in which Agent 47 fails to kill his target, rendering all of your work pointless.



I really, really hope thats not true.

That would ruin Hitman for me.

Same person apparently gave Max Payne 3 55/100.


That sounds about right. This guy knows his stuff and doesn't hand out score based on expectations or hype.

Sounds about right.

Max Payne 3 SP is basically this: Over ten-minute cutscenes in-between, walked down an alley, watched another cutscene, climbed some stairs, watched another cutscene, walked up an alley, watched another cutscene, continued up the alley, and then watched another cutscene.

On top of that, the game featured no less than five shooting gallery sections, where Max couldn't move, but had to shoot at people who walked into his frame of vision. A 55/100 is somewhat generous.

Seriously game developer/producer please friggin STOP with all the hand-pulling cutscenes and trying to appeal to "kiddie generation" CoD gamers. Not everyone wants all their game to be an interactive QTE movie, doing so is insulting and not nice at all.

All other reviews for Absolution have been positive so far, so I remain optimistic. Ryan Davis' review & Quick Look will decide if it's a Day 1 or not for me.


Nothing to worry about then since MP3 is my favourite game this gen

every portion of the game is said to be bad.


the game receives a score of 62 out of 100


How does that add up...


He's using the new 6/10 (60/100) scoring system ;)

Both OPM and OXM gave Hitman Absolution a 9/10, and their reviews state that this guy is full of ****.

I think the PC porting job had something to do with the low review score. If those things listed are true, they're...pretty bad.

Well we've already seen that gameplay where Agent 47 disguises as the barber and approaches the target sitting on the chair. That's one example.
