Why suddenly Hitman Absolution is the worst in the series?

Or it's just typical nostalgia bias.

Do you live under a rock, TC? Absolution was hated from day 1.

nostalgia bias hitman 1 is the worst while blood money is the best followed by contracts

Hitman Absolution is fine. I'm a huge fan of the series and was playing them as long as everybody else. Don't mind the boards in this situation look to the reviews as they are all solid and the metacritic rating 79% which is still a great game.


People are just love to complain. I love the game and the story is really great.

I'm not even halfway through Absolution and it's better than Contracts, the level design was pretty bad, plus there's less content compared Hitman 2.

That's why the game dropped to $20 new after 1 month of it's release? Its dropped faster than PS All-Star.

You didn't think for 1 second its just you who have poor taste? The game have a mediocre action movie story with a loli doing kung-fu to kill 20 military trained soldiers that make a Michael Bay movie look like a Oscar candidate.

It's not, the first game is. People are just disappointed that it's not as open and free as Blood Money.

Price drops have nothing to do with quality. They have to do with expected sales numbers from the company. Square Enix was disappointed with 3.6 million copies sold and expected larger numbers .Dropping the game price has nothing to do with how good the game is.

But no get mad and compare it a Michael Bay movie as I can tell you probably just watched a youtube video and got pissed off. lol. See I'm actually playing the game so thanks for that spoiler alert.

Or Hitman 2. Or Hitman Contracts. It's massively dumbed down and removed the opened levels the entire series is known for.
