You have few things in a big mess over there brother.
Truly speaking, from bottom of my heart, Some levels GRAPHICALLY, were astonishing. When i saw the size of DEXTER LABS, i thought THIS IS IT, or when DIANA at the start says "YOU"R OWN YOUR ON NOW 47" or something along those lines. I had adrenaline rush in me. Sadly, it was short-lived. what followed was pathetic Cover-SHOOTER, which occasional GENIUS (OCCASIONAL as in 5%).
But when you say ABSOLUTION IS BETTER THEN BLOOD MONEY, i think you just need to look at general public response. People didn't generally dig absolution. they did dig blood money though. Same, Bloody Money wasn't THE BEST HITMAN, i think for me it was SA and CONTRACTS. but BM is MILES, i mean FUCKING MILESSSS ahead of Absolution, just imagine how many miles CONTRACTS & SA is ahead of ABSOLUTION.
Simply, it all boils down to this "REPLAYABILITY". For me absolution was, Finish This STORY MODE (Like COD), onto MULTIPLAYER (CONTRACTS). lol. and what, now we have MONEY to spend on stupid perks or weapons and upgrades, with a RIDICULOUS POINT system in story mode. Sadly, this game sucks, i only played it so much due to my LOVE for HITMAN, i still love it.
Even after 4 months of my initial flaming and trolling, fights with quinn etc. heel turn of choronzon (haha). whatever, it was. Even now i think IOI has missed it BIG FUCKING TIME.
EIDOS is pulling all the strings here folks. just last night, Squeenix head gave Eidos boss a promotion (BIG ONE) and there is going to be a helluva restructuring. Just Imagine, Squeenix said TOMB RAIDER was a failure as it sold 3.4 Million. You can imagine that Hitman Absolution was a failure to them again. they did however predict they wud sell 5 million HITMAN. I am sure, there is TROUBLE BREWING in IO Headquarters.
Dont be surprised when VERY SOON, you see people departing from IOI and maybe, they might even shut down IOI. Considering Squeenix said (HITMAN WAS A FAILURE) and they needed more Pull from the franchise. Not to mention, in their Report SQueenix mentioned that a lot of Hitman games were sold on a DISCOUNT, which in turn forced squeenix to pay the retailers back on the extra money they lost. HITMAN 6 with squeenix montreal. looks like IOI will be DEAD VERY SOON.
UNLESS UNLESS UNLESS.
They have one last HURRAY with Hitman 7, and bring a SANDBOX KILLER GAME, something along the LINES of SILENT ASSASSIN & CONTRACTS (i am sure EVERY FUCKING ONE will agree with that)
Well first off, when Blood Money was released it was flamed to death on this very forum, just like Absolution. And no i do not need to look at a general public response to find out that i prefer Absolution over
Blood Money. Absolution got alot of replayability (in my case). And second things i think you miss understod Squar Enix, they did not think it was a failur, they admiddet they had to high expectations for both Absolution, Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs, which was why they was let down by the sales. Absolution (3.6 mil, this is with out Digital Downloads) sold more then both Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider. And 3.6 mil is not a low number for a game which franchise have been away for 6 years.
it is fine, that you think this game is a pile of racon shit. But stop posting bullshit, it is getting annoying. You are alowed to have an opinion, just like me and ever body els,
but if i was you, i would find another tone. Insted of making a rant full of CAPSLOCK and condescending words, because you should be able to get your point across, with having to flash your E-penis.
Oh and stop speaking for the "hardcore fan" / every Hitman fan, because there alot of Hitman fans that have stayed wit the franchise since the beging that likes Absolution (and i'm one of them).
Don't count on Io-interactive is closing, and nother thing is that in the game industry people leave all the time. It is part of the job, you seek out projects, you
work on one and then most people leave unless they are hired to work on another projects for the same company.
I started this disgusion and i'm going to end it, because it wont lead any where.
