Well, I've actually become more interested in Hitman: Blood Money as a result of this, but not Hitman: Absolution.
HURRAH FOR LOGIC!

The in-game score tracker is easily my biggest gripe about the gameplay. I literally would reset every time I was spotted or failed to be absolutely perfect because of the severe point loss for certain actions (like getting spotted or murdering civilians. The scoring system itself was fine, but having that bar in the upper hand corner just changed my motivations and techniques along a strict linear path.

Yahtzee, you know, that when even voices in your head tries to persuade you to attend the therapy, they are right!
And if furniture claims that you are insane it is also tight.

I hoped you wouldn't be too harsh on Absolution.It's a good game and it tries its best to combine classic Hitman gameplay with the gameplay of more conventional stealth-games to create a more varied and more storydriven experience.

Agent 47 actually has a band aid over his bar code because he attempts to cut it off, as shown in a cutscene.

I suppose a few good missions are better than nun.
And I didn't think Yahtzee would complain about sniper rifles being left out for you, considering he's so tigger happy.

Normally the action bit would deter me, but with both this and Dishonored on my Christmas list, I figure I'll have at least the best of both worlds: the somewhat more serious yet visually stylish stealth game and the somewhat cartoony yet realistic looking stealth action.

I wouldn't consider Hitman 2 the worst as quickly conveyed in this review. I have yet to play this one as I'm less enthused the more I hear and I love the series, even Contracts, which I'd consider the "worst" - emphasis on quotations.

Can you say Contracts was the worst game, when every installment significantly improved upon its predecessor? Contracts sin wasn't that it was -bad- (it was still downright excellent), it was that it didn't revolutionise every single aspect of the game as much as Silent Assassin did - it merely improved it by leaps and bounds.

I'm glad you hold Blood Money as the best and Silent Assassin as the worst. The Hitman series is my favorite and I never got why everyone loved the second game so much.

I'm so happy that the Ocelot God appears regularly in the videos, and wasn't just a one-time joke.

Hm I found that quite fair and every gripe he had with the game I myself also have.
Though I am tending to enjoy that it is story driven (just the once thank you)
And might I also add that for the most part I am enjoying the game
despite its save system and disguises almost being useless.
And in the end I agree. No the best *waves at blood money* Not the worst *nods to the first game*
It's just good and I'm alright with that so long as nobody takes Hitman the way Ubisoft took Sam Fisher after Conviction o_O!!
Okay back to laughing at from this review.
