2.0 out of 5 stars Hitman's Creed: Splinter Gear, 4 Dec 2012

This review is from: Hitman Absolution (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
What a disappointment. Whilst not exactly a bad game if you like stealth cover shooters, it's a pretty poor Hitman game. It has hits that happen in cut scenes. It also has failed hits beyond your control that are just there to serve the "story". Fair enough, if the story is any good, but it's spectacularly bad. A real lesson in why much of videogame writing is still completely terrible. The cut scenes are like the leftovers from the editing room floor of a GTA game.

Blood Money was a game in which you created your own stories in a sandbox environment. There's precious little of that here. Some might argue that old time Hitman fans need to "move with the times", and accept that IO Interactive had to try something new. But the tragedy is, there's actually nothing new here at all. Save for the disguises, you could be playing any other stealth/action/cover shooter game. It's utterly generic.
