Not sure why the reviewer is moaning about bloom effects in the game. I will admit, I hate bloom with a passion but I'm betting you can edit the intensity or turn it off. Your on a PC, you will be able to tweak the settings to your liking or just flat out edit a .ini file if you can't. That's all I do. Plus I love messing with .ini files, AA profiles, injectors and what not. I will find a way to disable bloom if it does my head in too much, that I can guarantee. Not a big killer for me.
The review here is bad, bad score I mean. However, I never take what reviewers say to heart and neither should you. It can ruin a potentially entertaining game for yourself, just try it and make your own review. The standard game is like £20 on shopto.net so if it really is as bad as he says then it's not a big kick in the wallet. If I followed all the review scores since I was gaming from the early 90's, the library of games I enjoyed, old and new, would be a lot smaller. I would have missed titles I really enjoyed, fact. No game is perfect and never will be. Us PC gamers are a bunch of nit-pickers, we will always find something wrong. Can't wait for the game next week and I hope I get a lot of entertainment out of it.
Oh and don't go on about IO betraying loyal fans to the series by going off the rails and adding/removing content or casual elements. I love the Hitman games, played every title. If you think it's going to be a betrayal of the highest order then I suggest you go and play all the Ultima games from 0 to IX, then you will truly know what betrayal to a loyal fan base really is. Can't see it being as bad as that so roll on Tuesday!
