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.


None and none. I do my own research before I buy something so I already know whether or not I'll like it. None of this research ever involves reading a review of the game.

Hardware, on the other hand, I will read reviews on.

Had many instances where a game you enjoyed wasn't reviewed well despite your research?

Another "stealth" game that throws stealth out the window?!?! That's unpossible. It's just how it is now. Hell MGS4 wasn't even stealthy.


play chapter 3 and tell me that

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.


55/100? pshh sounds around right? You sir are an idiot or just a kiss ass defending that rubish.. geeze

Two other markets have given the console versions a 9/10 and an 8.75/10.

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.


It's not. Many players and reviewers alike have confirmed this along with other things.

This reviewer is literally stating false facts. Ex : The "gently" press your mouse button has been confirmed wrong, even the user manuel states that it is the SHIFT key...

Other users (even in the comment section where the article was originally posted on gameranx) have stated that the game runs at 60 fps, as well as that the game never encourages or forces you to kill.

Or maybe it's because I've been a Hitman fan since 47 that I'm trying my damnedest to see the best in this game. Fortunately IO has received enough backlash to prevent it from becoming another Splinter Cell Conviction. I'm sure going to miss that newspaper (which should have been upgraded to a news broadcast) and Jesper Kyd though. :(

What do you mean by "another Splinter Cell Conviction?" That game was awesome.
