[OFFICIAL] Hitman: Absolution Information & Discussion Thread - Page 5

post #41 of 307
I got this game free with my AMD card, so I retract my statement about it being horrible as it was just an obvious blogboy nerdrage review. I will probably give it a shot sometime soon as it did look pretty appealing in videos. It will likely be a while before I get to it as Planetside 2 releases in 3 hours. I think even BF3 will have a hard time pulling me away from that.

@ontopic: this game sounds very demanding. I thought I would be able to cut it with my gtx570. But doesn't look like it. Hopefully a patch will fix it. When oh when will companies just let go of releasedates and just publish a finished game. If it was only not a broken one.

Millions think battlefield 3 is a great game and it's fundamentals are broken. There is no team work. Sure the gameplay is good at times and other parts of the game are good too but without a way to work together it's mindless running around with everyone looking out for themselves, which in turn kills the re-playability and the overall experience.

This is exactly the same. They've taken a complex and beautifully complex game and dumbed it down for the console kids. Something they didn't need to do. The gameplay is bad, clunky and the maps are boring and simple. Played every mission for a few minutes and not once was there a need for a sniper rifle or a long shot in the game. There is also one sniper rifle in the game. Areas are easy to get into and disguises are not needed, just the overall approach and feel of the game feels very on rails and not sandbox at all. If you don't agree with me fine, enjoy the game but I don't even think if I was 12 this would excite me all that much. Especially since the game is made to be played running around on your knees and twirling from cover to cover. Which doesn't excite me either. I've played every Hitman game and finished them, and this compared to the series is horrible. Been dumbed down and too many hints and helpers have been put into the game to make it easy to pick up and play. Graphics beautiful in parts but that can't make up for everything else.

Not to mention the weapons and their attachments seem like they were done at the last minute. The last one the attachments were meaningful and useful and actually worked. In this they are pure show. No working lazers, no working scopes, no customization that you benefit from and all the weapons are mostly spray and gun down type weapons. Like I said one sniper rifl and it wasn't a W2000.

Maybe I'll try it again later in the week but hopefully I'm too busy playing planetside 2.

With dumb-downed do you mean too easy? Did you try the Purist mode?

Yeah using latest drivers. Min FPS was 33 in benchmark and max 55FPS.

Only mode I could play. Normal mode has too many helpers and hints on screen

The game is different but I like it just as well. The graphics are amazing, fully maxxed with 8x msaa really does almost look perfect. The one issue I'm wondering about is why my vram was approaching 2.5gb and I only played for an hour before I had to go to work. I mean the graphics are nice, but I was gaming at 1080p single monitor. Oh well, hope they optimize it, otherwise anyone with less than 2gb vram wont be able to max it as is.

^ Didn't quote to save space.

I agree, and unfortunately the gaming industry as a whole has been dumbing everything down lately. It's really a bummer for those that enjoy either a challenging game or at least one that is very well put together that requires tactical skill/thought processing. IMO Diablo 3 is another perfect example of it as are all the annual COD releases. BF3 I have to disagree with you on. I think it has plenty of a learning curve with the need to collaborate between multiple gadgets (SOFLAM, Javelin/other laser guided projectiles). I just wish it would have in-game VOIP like BF2 did or better yet, like Planetside 2 with proximity VOIP.

Doing it all in the same suit and going for silent assassin and is a challenge!!! Doing it on Hard as you really need those checkpoints tbh.

I could just cruise it and swap suits etc... but that's too easy.
Want custom difficulty tbh. e.g. Max enemies and best reaction times but with checkpoints.

I think it looks good. But it damn well should for a 20GB game.

For NVIDIA users, you might want to try the latest beta drivers. And it should be common knowledge to disable global illumination if you're having performance issues... this is why devs should never make this option enabled on any graphics preset, not in 2012. The same applies for supersampling.
