I really really want this game to be good.
I'd like to think this review score is mostly because of a bad PC port. I could care less and frankly I think PC gamers deserve a bad port since you get what you "pay" for.

That stuff about encouraging non-stealth gameplay sounds really bad though and could kill Hitman


What are you insinuating exactly? That all PC gamers are pirates? Go make your generalizations somewhere else, and while you're there, eat a bowl full of fleshy, cylindrical objects.


Of course I'm not saying ALL of them are pirates. There are those who will buy it once it's 2 dollars on steam after they're done "demoing" the game.

Of course by demoing I mean having beaten the game twice.

My own opinion is the only one I care about.


How many things have you tried that you hated and later found got bad reviews?
How many things have you never tried but might have liked if you'd taken the time to read a review?

If you're assuming reviews are just the numerical score given at the end, then you're doing reviews wrong. I would agree that review scores are not worth what people think they are, but they're not worthless. It's the body text of the review that counts and with experience you can pick out the well written reviews from the attention seeking ones.


A review is a futile, self-indulgent endeavor and nothing more. I don't care whether or not Joe Schmoe liked the latest Blue Cheese. If you think I don't know how to comprehend the underlying context of a review, then you are more presumptuous and pretentious than you make yourself out to be.

If reading reviews has taught me anything, it's that my tastes are quite different than a pontificating "journalist." Maybe reviews are your shepherd, but they're not mine. I formulate my own opinions.

This isn't restricted to video games. This happens with every medium. Psycho got bad reviews. So did Nabakov's Lolita. Their reviews were ultimately insignificant.

The mention of it being a bad PC port is all any of you should have needed to see to understand this reviewers rant. No matter how good or how a well a game does things, if its a bad PC port PC game reviewers will trash it, period.

Console bug testing has been outsourced to gamers now. For $60 you too can become a game tester.

Who are these people? Because last I checked, MP3 is generally regarded as one of the best games released this year.

The ones most bothered by a poor port job are the ones that pay for it, bro.
