Game Arena – Hitman: Absolution review

Reviewer who recently drew controversy for his Halo 4 review (5.5/10) appears to be "using the full 1- 10 scoring scale" yet again with his against-the-grain review of Hitman: Absolution. (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/10

It really does deserve around there. Give or take.

You really do deserve to have no bubbles.

OT: Site is obviously fishing for hits. I've seen Hitman: Absolution getting 8's and higher in many places. Good to see it's doing well.

yes lets draw paralells between different things people may or may not like and assume they are wrong because of that....

Logical sense = none.

To say somebody is invalid because they scored BOII higher than Hitman and Halo is stupid and juvenille and lets just leave it out how different reviewers may have conducted those reviews and had differing opinions....

People and review scores....they act like they personally matter to them and it is pathetic.

Agreed. They remove all thing that make hitman great. Really disappointed as a hitman fan.

Absolution is mistake . I expect something like blood money nOt this ane gamearena feel this but im disagree with 5/10 halo score.

i either hyped hitman in the past or this game doesnt feel like one , it's a good game though ...

it just feels empty because it doesn't give the features that hitman offers before , i feel like they are trying to make it more simple and easier just like the other developers in this generation , i don't see it as a challenging game like before , maybe it's too easy for me after playing this kind of gameplay in hardest difficulty like in mgs collection / dishonored and others....

they also makes a type of gameplay as if it's the right one , i don't know if this is good or not , i just dont feel it's right for me in this moment ..

EDIT : it's not that bad if you look at it as a normal game , i really forgot what i played in hitman series , it has been more then 6 years since my last hitman , so don't listen to me if you want to buy it , i know i will enjoy it after a while ...

Dont take notice of this review guys I have been playing it for 3 days and it's awesome 9/10

An Australian gaming website....highly disappointed at this score. It may not be the same Hitman as Contracts or Blood Money was but the game still looks and plays well.
@JellyJelly I saw some of the other reviews they made and they're mostly exaggerated ratings, some games get a score higher than they should and some games get a lower rating, it's just inconsistent at how many 10's they give.
I expected more from Australian gaming site being an Australian myself.

Don't feel too bad about it. I'd be ready to blow up the US if I took reviewers here seriously.

That said, this is a pretty sad review from a pretty sad site.
reznik_zerosum  +   925d ago
Doesn't deserve more.
BLAKHOODe  +   925d ago
Like everything else on the planet... it isn't for everybody. A review is meaningless. Play the game and decide for yourself. Don't let some mystery man that likes to write stories about video games dictate your opinion.

Bullshit review by a jaded site
bunfighterii  +   925d ago
I'm not entirely sure he's giving it a 3 because he thinks its a 3, but I would like to see more review sites use the full 1-10 scale more often.

These days anything under a 7 people think as woeful and not worth their time, 7-8 appeals to fans of a franchise or genre only, 9 is what every game should be getting and 10 is God tier.

But in reality 5 should be the average, anything below is below average game, anything above is better (but 10 still God tier :))
GTRrocker666  +   924d ago
So if a kid gets 50% on a spelling test that is average?
urwifeminder  +   925d ago
Stealth and open world games are my least fav games,its shame this is scoring so low for fans.

Do I smell a clicks whore???

Finished it last night. I think Hitman fans will like it. It's not great but it's enjoyable and there are countless ways to play, which is what matters. A solid 7.5-8/10 imo.
