Maybe you're correct, but I now will wait to hear reviews. I mean in this day and age, a level THAT bad is unacceptable. Look at Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, their first level is awesome. It grabbed me and I went "Wow, what is next!", each level was better than the last.
Demo's need to show this. Gothic 1 had a great demo and the minute I was done with the Demo I immediately headed out to EB and bought it! That was smart of them to make a solid demo.
The bad thing is when these companies don't provide a demo. Hitman does have a demo, that's great, but the demo doesn't give me a compelling reason to buy the game at all. Matter of fact it turned me off to the series.
2 great games, 2 bad games.
