I enjoyed "Absolution".  I still enjoy it.  It's one of the 360 games I hung onto when the ONE came out.

I played "Blood Money" and enjoyed that too but don't really see what the big difference is.

What happened in "Absolution" that defied "Core Fans"?

Last I checked a self proclaimed "Core Fan" was someone who liked to moan on the internet.

Absolution was a much more dumbed down affair, not on the same level as blood money. having played blood money then going on to absolution it just was not up to the same standard. Its good to see that they are going to return to making hitman a great game instead of average as the last one was. Too many developers stray from what made their games great to attract a wider user base and what you usually get is an inferior product simplified to be accesssible to everyone that the exisitng fan base no longer wish to bother with. I sold my absolution but still have blood money in my collection
