I’ve noticed an overwhelming amount of negative perception of the game Absolution on this forum.
Though, I do agree that it’s not as good of a “Hitman” game as other entries in the series, I believe the game is a milestone simply for the fact that it introduced the “contracts” mode.
As a matter of fact, when Absolution was the current Hitman game, the contracts mode was all I was playing on that game. It created a lot of positive interaction between me and other players, and a lot of good memories.
Basically, I feel that Absolution is better remembered as the birth of the contracts mode.
