    wow.

    i'm beginning to think this is one dude.... or at least from the same gene pool.

    It's telling, from a purely psychological viewpoint, that the two(?!) most vociferous defenders of the game are people who have clearly admitted to never playing it. There is a very obvious issue with this, which you'd think would be obvious to them....

    Secondly, in the case of mega muffin, it's interesting that he brings up the purist mode after the embargo was lifted. I.e. from reading other reviews- so again, the position is not based on 'fact' per say, but on the opinion's of other reviewers. Their only claim to being a better authority on the game? An aligned opinion....

    Just as an aside to the new posters- welcome. It's always good to have new traffic through the site, and it should be encouraged, but just so that you're aware: the PCGUK demographic is a lot older than the console demographic. I think our average age is early thirties, whereas the console is early twenties [/pullfiguresfromass]. As such we're generally a bit more considered, and less likely to fly off on one (obvious exceptions abound).

    This is why many of us are being, shall we say, resistant to 'your' position and your arguments for the time being.

    Also- pie.

    Well, despite some legit concerns that have been brought up by some reviewers, there seems to be enough "goodies" to be had for me to hang onto my pre-order of Hitman. I'll decide for myself if this game is "cool" or not, and if it sucks, well.... I'll be out of $50.

    Personal hat on again - one thing I don't get are the people attacking Tom for saying that the game being bad because it's trying to be different from Blood Money. The thing is, as far as I can tell, none of Tom's points on the changes are criticising it for changes' sake. He points out the changes that he feels don't work as well and says why, not just "because it's not Blood Money."

    Phew, I managed to get a refund for Hitman three hours before release. I consider myself lucky.
