"By now, I’m sure we’ve all witnessed a long-running franchise that we absolutely love get ruined, changed and ‘mainstreamed’ so hard that it sent us into a rage-induced forum bombing, if you will. For the longest while, I didn’t think Hitman: Absolution would fit into such a category. All year long, the game looked as if it were shaping up to be another solid entry in the series, albeit with refined gameplay and a more prominent narrative.
After finally sitting down to play the game, however, I have to say that I’m incredibly disappointed by it. Daniel wrote a positive review of the game last month, wherein he awarded the game an 8/10. I respect his opinion, as well as those of the people who ended up enjoying the game. However, that’s not what I’m here for, is it? I’m here to disagree with them, and disagree with them I shall. Hitman: Absolution is a disappointment so crushing that it rivals the act of being bludgeoned by Agent 47 himself." (Michael Urban, OnlySP.com)
