Summary: Nothing wrong with the game but as usual, Steam is a mess. Played a few times, then will not connect. No way to get anything from Steam without answering half the questions in the universe. Makes me love old disc games, but of course it's all about the money.
Summary: There are videos online claiming to help fix startup issues (which are too numerous to be excusable for a game that is not brand new), but I don't feel obligated to put in all that effort for a game that I, the consumer, paid for. What a piece of garbage.
Pros: None that I have seen. I have never been able to play the game.
Cons: Since installing (and reinstalling twice), I have not yet been able to successfully start the game. Not even once. As many other users have already said, the game hangs during the opening movie, then crashes. Every. Time. There is a patch available which claims to fix startup issues, but all it did was make the game crash during a different part of the opening movie. It is harder to play this game than it is to illegally download and crack a game that works.
Summary: The premise and criteria of the game is just fine. However, the PC version of this game was release rife with screen freezes, blue screens of death, and other bugs that will come up mid game. When I go on forums searching for answers there is a deluge of similar problems. Virtually all "answers" involve deleting your profile from Steam, download the game 'again' and/or killing the cache folder.
Summary: Steam cannot run with our (country) local network settings, hooray. I really miss the old days, where you bought a CD, installed and played, and didnt have to download tons of spyware. F*** y** EA, Steam, etc.
Summary: I tried to like this game, I really did. I'm a huge fan of PC stealth games and was looking forward to this one based on the reviews. But this game turned out to be a real dud. What went wrong? First, the stealth in this game is a joke. You can get right up next to enemies and they won't even notice you. Other times, they spot you from across the level. This is easily the buggiest implementation of stealth since Thief 3, and that came out 8 years ago.
Das Spiel wäre so genial, könnte man nur nach belieben Speichern

Summary: Als PC-Spieler der ersten Stunde habe ich mich auf Hitman - Absolution sehr gefreut, und das Spiel auch gleich nach Erscheinen zum Vollpreis gekauft. Und ich wurde erstmal nicht enttäuscht: Tolle Atmosphäre, mitreißende Story, und eine Grafik vom Allerfeinsten. Dass die Level den Spieler führen und nicht mehr komplett frei begehbar sind ("Schlauchsystem") will ich dabei gerne verzeihen, die Gegnerintelligenz und vor allem die vielen verschiedenen Lösungswege, die man...
Summary: Nach sehr hohen Erwartungen, die durch durchweg positive Vorab-Reviews geschürt wurden, ist Hitman Absolution für mich eine einzige Enttäuschung. Man weiß gar nicht, wo man anfangen soll. Ich frage mich, wie man das Spiel ernsthaft mögen kann, wenn man die Vorgänger geliebt hat. Die Hauptkritikpunkte: -Eine hanebüchene Story. 47 ist in Absolution zum gefühlsduseligen Weichling verkommen.
