Average User Score: 6.6Sep 10, 2014I love it!
I did not care for this game before the Beta, which was when I finally tried it and it was just what I was looking for.. After 2 months of painful waiting I finally got the game, and I was not let down from my existing hype. Nice graphics, exellent animations, great sound and beatuflly crafted worlds makes this a game for me, but if there is one thing I can say that feels kind of bad so must it be the story. It just kind of lacks depth.
End note: I like it for what it is (A new IP) and that I did not over hype myself helped that. I never cared for Halo much so that might have something to do with it.… Expand

Well it did take me 10 months from the first time I played it for two hours before I actually got into it, but boy did the time fly then. The story, graphics and everything ells is absolutely top notch and the DLC's for once is also good … Expand
Average User Score: 7.0Nov 22, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm like halfway trough the game now, and I have to say that everything about it is what I was expecting if not even more. Some might say that it is linear, and yes they are right in some aspects but I'f you look trough it there is a bunch of choices on how you are going to get from A to B, for example in the Hotel level there is 3 entrances with their own distinct way to get trough. And thats what I like about Absolution or the hitman series in general. The story is also very good in my honest opinion, maybe a little dumb here and there but it works and you get interested in the characters. Oh and I might add one epic scene from the Hippie level in the chapter "Run for your life", it was so unexpected to see police men starting to dance making the way clear to get out.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Oct 13, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Just finished it, and I got to say this game just blew all my expectations away. Great art style, genius map layout and an overall good feel that fits right inn. The whole stealth system is very well made and there is a huge amount of possibilities on how you go forwards, one fine example is the last mission where you have to get up the light tower, Samuel says that there is only one way inn and that it is extremely well guarded. But just by looking around you can see many possible ways to get inn, and no they are not just there for making the level more appealing and they are not blocked by invincible walls or anything.. So yes you guessed it, you CAN actually go on them and use them to your advantage, and this goes for all the levels without the first mission as you don't have gotten the "Blink" spell yet. But... as always there is one thing that breaks the game a little bit.. And that is the story, it is just to short... 9 missions is just to little for a game of this magnitude. I felt that there could have been much more, the story was a little to thin for me, I completed the game in about 12 hours on Normal difficulty, by stealthily going trough every inch of the maps before finishing the missions. So I give it a solid 8/10, for brilliant art style, great map designs, godlike ideas and gameplay.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7May 21, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I love this game, at first I was a little afraid of them going to a more sunny location and that max was bald and me thinking he was a drunk & depressed person, but BOY was I wrong when I got the game. Graphics is nice, story is extremely well done and the gameplay is fun. All the complains about that there is to much cut scenes and sh*t, makes me dissapointed, the Max Payne franchise is based on heavy usage of cut scenes and them dragging out for a bit, that's because of the BIG story they are trying to tell, and not some half baked COD story that makes no sense after the first few hour's.
My only complaint has to be the ending, I felt that it did not give enough closure and also that it was the shortest cut scene of all of the ones that was in the game. They could really have putted a few minutes with him saying why he went were he went and what he is going to do from now on and out.
But anyway, I also have to talk a little about multiplayer. I did not play much of it because of me not getting into matches, all it did was creating a new match with me alone and nobody coming in to it. However I did get into 3 matches and of what I did play I have to say that it is promising and the maps are well build't. Not to big and not to small.
I give this a 10/10! If you're a big suc*er for R* games like me then you have to get this. If not then get it because of the excellent story line that R* have put together, but I have to warn you if you don't like cut scenes much, then this game may not be something for you because of the long cut scenes that the game got (Some even going for 5-8 minutes).… Expand
Average User Score: 3.9May 17, 2012Ben playing it for 9 hours now and is on Act 3 now, and I have to say that I really like this game and also hate it in some regards. The game itself is fine, but when it comes to the "always online" system then it fails. Lets say you have a bad internet connection, then you will start to have small problems when it comes to lag.. Anway 7/10… Expand
Average User Score: 5.7Mar 10, 2012I absolutely love this game, and the trilogy as a whole. It was a fantastic ending to something that I've been enjoying for so many years now, the writing, gameplay, mechanics, graphics and story was top notch. Bringing back many of the elements from ME1 and mixing it together with ME2 made a winning formula gameplay wise. Adding mods to weapons and a bigger rpg system was something that I missed in ME2, so again thanks Bioware for making such an Sci-Fi epic!
Anyway, I finished the game after 29 hours so there is much to it. And don't take good or bad reviews as an dealbreaker for either buying it or not, just try it. It is so worth it :)
NOTE: I just wanted to add that I don't think this is actually the end for the ME universe, since my ending had a big Cliffhanger... So there has to be more to it.… Expand
