In my opinion, the soundtrack for Absolution was terrible. The same track played on almost every level (save the Chinatown ones) and the "action" theme got old quick. What Hitman 6 really needs is a good OST. Jesper Kyd would be ideal but any composer that enlists the help of a real orchestra will do. I'm thinking Hitman 2: Silent Assassin caliber.

The St. Petersburg and Malaysia soundtracks (heres the link to the St. Petersburg one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbVliFbnvDY ) were absolutely awesome.

It seems that soundtracks are often overlooked in video games as long as they are not terrible. However, this is definitely not the case with the Hitman series. A lot of time spent waiting for guards to go past/getting into position. All that downtime is where the music comes in. I feel like this was missing in Absolution.

Y'all agree?

Agreed - Bring back Jesper Kyd. He really knew how to set the mood and atmosphere of every level with his soundtracks.
