I got my Black Ops 2 $20 gift certificate 3 days after pick up. I did, however, order the game on 9/28, which is more than the 30 days waiting period.

How do we know that Hitman is going to be a good game without any reviews so far? I know the previous ones were, but this is a whole new ball. Remember when everyone was so excited about Ghost Recon: Future Soldier? People were buying that game in drove when it was released, even though there were no reviews out there, and that game is so bad it's unplayable.


i hope you are not trolling, the review is already out, just use google search if you do not believe me

Um, there are reviews. http://www.metacriti...tman-absolution

9/10 IGN
5/5 G4
8.8/10 Game Informer

And tons more mostly good reviews. I bought it at launch and will play it in a couple of weeks after finals. Can't wait! This is a good deal IMO.

Supposed to be around 15 hours+ long/short for the SP campaign, according to Angry Joe Show.
That's not even including the high-level of replayability (tons of ways to do kills, the scoring system, etc); and the new Contracts Mode, which he discusses later (around 16:58 into this).

See around 16 minutes and 9 seconds into it, where Angry Joe discusses the SP campaign's game length.

It took me three days to finish Hitman. With the GC, I would say that its worth buying but for $60 straight, nope. I bought it, beat it and already sold it on ebay. Basically, it cost me $25. Length depends on how you play the game. To me, its basically the Conviction of the Hitman franchise. I'm NOT even a hardcore Hitman fan and even I was disappointed. For me, the story is horrible. I hated it. After the first two stages, I just wanted to zoom through the game as I wasnt even into it anymore. Just wanted it to be over. Gameplay was good at times but also bad at times. The camera was too close at times which makes the buttons for dragging, weapon pick up, etc. hard to see. Granted, once you get used to it, you'll be fine. But its still annoying.

I basically went through running and gunning the majority of the game. Cant do stealth because there's too many stages that have way too many enemies. Disguises are horrible in my opinion. Instead of being here and there, you pretty much need to use them the entire game which also turned me off. Also, didnt like the aiming and shooting. To hold down the RT button halfway to get a slowmo on the target and then press it all the way down was annoying. Dont have to do this but didnt like it. The point shooting feature which is basically a copy of Conviction's mark and execute is horrible. I barely used it. You have to press RB to start instinct, then X to start the point shooting, then LT to aim, RT to target/mark and then X to finish it. Sorry but takes way too long to do this. Also, hate the scoring system. Shouldnt exist. I understand being penalized for killing civilians but to get penalized for killing the guys who are hunting you is just stupid. Near the end of the game, I stopped caring about points. I just wanted to finish the game.

Graphics/Visuals - 9/10
Music/Sound/Voice - 9/10
Gameplay - 5/10
Story - 5/10
Overall - 7/10

Here's how I can sum this up - the tutorial stage was my favorite stage. I did pure stealth and hid everybody. Game went downhill from there. I was so pumped for this game and honestly thought that it was going to be my game of the year but nope, Sleeping Dogs is still my game of the year.

As for site reviews, etc...you're better off just playing the game yourself. I hate reviews because you never know if they're legitimate or not. Sites get paid for good reviews or gets extra advertising. I stopped going by reviews a decade or so ago. In the end though, the only review that should matter is your own.

Sweet, the LBP coupon goes through 12/8, just enough time for all my pending points to show up from my AC3 pre-order. Maybe I'll even have finished a Vita game by then!

Also I think playing a Hitman game as a pure shooter basically invalidates your review of it...I mean why bother playing it?

I played it as a shooter because its way too frustrating to play as stealth on most levels. Cant do it. I was only playing on Normal and when there's 30 or so enemies in a small stage, you cant do anything else. You're always trespassing or spotted even with disguises. I learned early on that its NOT a true Hitman game. Those who loved Blood Money will tell you the same. The opening tutorial was probably the only true stealth stage because there's not a lot of enemies, the environment is small and you can actually take them out one by one. You cant do that in the majority of other stages because there's too many enemies. Thats when I just started shooting my way through. I played it because I bought it and wanted to finish it before I sold it. Didnt like the ending either. Sorry but the game is a HUGE disappointment and not what I was expecting. Hitman Absolution is basically the series version of Splinter Cell Conviction.

Because at around the halfway point of the game they stop giving you civilians in missions, it is only you with a couple very linear options to get to your objectives, and 40+ enemies where you can't use a disguise because everyone apparently knows each other. Then the removed the save anywhere feature for a checkpoint one so if you screw up it reloads a checkpoint 20 minutes ago which also respawns everyone including the guys you have killed/pacified and hid their bodies. The game is not that good and should have been a lot better, I would give it a 6 or 7 out of 10 and suggest playing blood money instead if you need a hitman fix. If you want a similar game but much better just pick up dishonored instead.

They will not price match and allow a coupon. However, they will allow a coupon to be used on their own sales prices.

According to some vets (cancerman), depends on how they print your receipt, which hopefully we can get some solid info soon.

i tried using the resident evil 6 $20 off in the store and it wasn't working. I clicked claim on my account even printed the coupon and when I tried to checkout it just said invalid and still rangup as $59.99

had to get a manager to override the price to $40, he said that has happened to other people today as well.

Exactly. This Hitman is much better if you treat it like Uncharted as stealth is a no go.

Here's the receipt from my purchase today for Hitman. It took awhile for the offer to show on the computer, but luckily it came through.
I'm guess PMing may be YMMV because it's listed as a Package/Bundle deal.
