Bastion. Just couldn't do it. Didn't see what was so great about it.

I disagree with Hitman Absolution. If you are playing it on normal and trying to run and gun your way through, that really isn't what Absolution is about.

 

 I forced myself to play it on Purist, and man was it so much more difficult. If your goal in Absolution is to get Silent Assassin (not killing anyone but targets, not being spotted), then you will have a very difficult but satifying time playing the game. It took me over 60 hours to beat Absolution on Purist mode after I had already beaten it on hard difficulty.

 

Like previous Hitman games, there are always different and unique ways to kill a target. Timing and strategy is everything. My gripes with the game is that instinct takes away the realism. All NPC's take set and repeated routes which again makes their moves predictable.

 

I've played Blood Money as well, and I can understand if die hard fans dislike Absolution. But I have a hard time believing anyone who thinks Absolution is "not" a Hitman game. Either they are just jumping on the hate bandwagon, or they really haven't given it a try on expert or purist mode.

I see your points but I have to disagree. I played it on Purist on first walkthrough, simply because I felt that would give me the best experience. My gripes with the game isn't that it doesn't feel like a Hitman game. In its core, it is a Hitman game. The core gameplay shines when you can assassinate a target through accidents without being detected and reaping the rewards.
What irked me about the game was the minimal settings. You'd go through alleyways and a train station or move through a hotel to escape. Unlike the other Hitman games, it lacked a different selection of settings. Blood Money boasted plenty of changes of scenery and kept it interesting, in my opinion.
But what it comes back to, is the story. Unlike its predecessors, Absolution focuses more on a narrative. This normally would be great, except for the fact that the environments are limited. The story is linear and takes away from the gameplay, in my opinion. Eidos was so keen in telling a story that they missed the mark of why you play as 47. I enjoyed being thrown in a setting where I could sneak through the level to my target in my black suit or change into a waiter's outfit to blend in and then once done, change back into my suit and escape. The story did not get in the way of the gameplay.
I enjoyed the simplistic nature of Blood Money where you have levels that you completed to the best of your abilities and you moved on with a story that was loosely told. Others might enjoy what Absolution gave, which was a more connected story. I enjoyed Absolution but not as much as I was hoping for.

The first Assassins Creed, it was awful. Never bothered with the rest.

Zelda: TP. Probably I was just 1 hour away from the end, then I sold my Wii.

Pokemon Diamond. My first Pokemon game. I put a lot of hours into it and just before going to the League I sold my DS to get a PSP. Worst decision ever.

Zelda: PH. Same as above. Same regret.

 I understand your concerns and I agree that the environments is lacking compared with Blood Money. I remember in one of the first mission in Contracts, you had to go through a huge military hanger or something like that.

 

I wouldn't necessarily ward people away from this game. It is worth the 7 dollars and I suggest people who like stealth games to try it out and play it on purist. I will say however, that playing the game on purist for the first time is like getting throne into a cage match with a tiger. You will get eaten... I don't care how good you are at stealth games. :D

Try the second AC. I won't say I hated the first one, but I found it very repetitive. Give the second one a try.

Lol. Purist kicked me around for a good while. I love the challenge of the game, though. That is what drew me into the Contracts and Blood Money.
And you are right, it is a good game and definitely worth the ridiculous $7 it can go for now.
