Does A Poor PC Review Cast A Shadow Over Hitman: Absolution?
Hitman: Absolution is easily one of the most anticipated titles of the year. ...but is something seriously wrong?
According to Gameranx citing the Christmas 2012 issue of PC gamer, the upcoming stealth/action game could be downright broken. In fact, the word "mess" is used.
Obviously, the review isn't exactly complimentary, as it says the story is bad, the levels are small, and AI sucks, and there are "pointless objectives." Furthermore, it seems to confirm a fear long-time fans have had ever since Ubisoft started promoting Absolution: The review says the game actually encourages you to kill guards and other enemies, which is in stark contrast to previous franchise installments, which put a premium on silence and stealth. Many were concerned about this after seeing some trailers that hinted at an adventure that was clearly more about action than stealth.
Of course, this is only one review and who knows, it might end up being the only negative review we see for the game. ...sadly, however, that seems unlikely. What happened?
