I feel it is unfair to disagree with his opinion without commenting as others have done.I am at the same part as you but am having a different experience. I am no longer comparing the game to Blood Money because it is entirely different and has felt so for a while. However the game overall to me is rather disappointing with off putting forced stealth parts, a poor disguise system that feels unfair to the player and smaller and simpler hits than Blood Money. I feel as though the whole game has been dumbed down to give it a movie feel. As if the developers after finishing Blood Money had much more ambitious ideas than Absolution but settled with what could make the most money. This is just my personal opinion and should not detract from yours or the reviewers.
