Wait until it's back up, they may have just accidentally put it up. Reviews do not usually pop up on major sites over weekends.

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.

That'd be funny, wasn't Kane and Lynch also from Ubisoft as well?


In any case most people are saying it wasn't supposed to go up today, but tomorrow.

I play a lil bit of everything on a lil bit of everything.
Not changing this until we get a Viewtiful Joe 3 or HD collection of VJ 1&2 (started 8/14/12)

I'm pretty sure Eidos/Square Enix published Kane and Lynch same with Hitman

Hmm. I dunno why I thought it was Ubisoft, At least I had the general idea right, that both games were under the same management.

It was published either directly through Eidos or through Ubisoft (can't remember which). Eidos wasn't bought by Square until the sequel, and even then the sequel was pretty much finished.

I played the demo last week.
It's a solid game, I felt it alot more than Blood Money and Contracts too.

But really, when you've played Metal Gear, every other stealth game seems less impressive.
Seems really good though, and at some point I went out in a balcony and the view was breathtaking.

LOL.... Eidos literally sent a real Hitman to scare them.
#10DrunkBeardGuyPosted 11/17/2012 6:47:57 PM
I've heard that there are some pretty big flaws that hold this game back from being better than Blood Money.

Checkpoints are ass, apparently
Only certain levels let you play how you want
Story that forces 47 to lose when he wouldn't
No briefcase, 47 now has unlimited pocket space

Overall it's a solid game, just don't go in expecting Blood Money 2 or anything.
