"The PC version, from developer Nixxes, has a number of bugs that have yet to be fixed a day before launch" - Joystiq

Nixxes did the PC port? They were the guys who did the PC port for DE:HR. So that should mean the PC port is good, at least. It may have a few bugs, but I'm sure they'll patch those. They sorted out the few issues with DE:HR in a few days after release.

Edit: Yep, they did->
At the time I reviewed it for the print edition of PC Gamer, the PC version of Hitman: Absolution suffered from serious performance problems. These have since been fixed, and Iíve had the chance to verify that on our own machines. Since itís still not out, there doesnít seem much point in dinging it for a problem you wonít have. So in this online version, Iíve amended the bit that was no longer accurate.

To give you an idea, on a 2.8 GHz quad core with a Radeon HD 4800, it now runs at about 30-40 FPS on medium settings. It used to be 15 even on minimum.

The previously awful performance contributed to it feeling like a shonky PC port to me, and I took it into account in the score. Now that it runs decently, the game feels approximately 4% less shonky, and Iíve adjusted the score accordingly. This is about as scientific as the initial scoring process.
