Not a Hitman gameOakleighy | March 3, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution PRE
In short, if you want to shoot people as agent 47 this is the game for you. If you want a Hitman game, this is certainly not the game for you. That satisfaction of pulling off a smooth stealthy assassination, which the old games were so good at delivering is completely absent from this atrocious iteration. The King of Chinatown is pretty much the only level reminiscent of the old games. Stick with Blood Money if you want a Hitman experience. If you want to make-believe you're playing Hitman, when you are really playing Agent 47 pretending he's in a Call of Duty game (with the ability to wear costumes or "disguises") then Absolution is for you.
