My second favouriteSparksStones | Jan. 11, 2015 | See all SparksStones's reviews »
Hitman is one of my favourite franchise, and I like Absolution so much. The title renewed the conception of Hitman games, including Agent 47. Agent 47 is a cold assassin, he doesn't cry, doesn't love, doesn't feel, but in Absolution we could see a beginning of a 'humanisation'. The story is different of the usually. You have to kill Diana (if you've played the previous Hitman games, you know who Diana is), because she apparently betrayed the Agency, but things are not what it seems and Agent 47 will be in a hunt for answers. Now you're by yourself: is 47 against the Agency, and the Agency against 47. Absolution counts with an excellent visuals and sound. The gameplay is good, and now we have a new functionality called "Instinct". When activated, Instinct shows your enemies/targets in colors behind the walls; and a "trail", where your enemies or targets will pass, so you can calculate your moves and evade 'surprises'. This functionality is deactivated when you choose the "Professional Mode" difficulty. The "Contracts" mode gives you a chance to create your own levels and challenge your friends and the community, you make the rules! Hitman Absolution is a great game, my second favourite of the franchise (Blood Money is my #1 yet). If you love Hitman, you will love Absolution.
Neat game!M0rten | Nov. 12, 2014 | See all M0rten's reviews »
I am a big fan of the stealth genre, and I have to say this game delivered. Although it was not exactly as I imagined, it was a neat game. Pros: + Beautiful Graphics + Great Crowd system + Neat level design + Nice to have multiple ways of dealing with things + Story is kinda nice too (I did not have high expectations in that field) +Repayable (A dozen times) Cons: - Some AI issues - I often felt like the AI is deaf, as the only thing they heard was gunshots. - I felt like the AI didn't really care for each other - Everyone AI knows all its co-workers - Ending was less satisfying than I would have liked
Excelent Hitman game13rd_Observer | Oct. 27, 2014 | See all 13rd_Observer's reviews »
The story is intense, atmosphere and gameplay is great and the sound is so good. Also, graphics is wonderful. Agent 47 shows a personality that we never saw before. The new trick, called Instinct, makes the game a little easly, but this 'problem' is solved just choosing the Professional Mode difficulty. The campain take around 10 hours, but if you like to do all perfect and rise the best ranking (Silent Assassin), this time turn into +16 hours. One of the best stealth ever made.
A different Hitmanale91 | Oct. 6, 2014 | See all ale91's reviews »
A great departure from old school Hitman games.The game is more linear and cinematic,in some missions you won't even have to kill anybody. The more open ended levels are where all the killing is done and they offer the usual free approach of the series. The graphics are great and the game is quite long. It could have been a great game but it lacks some of the Hitman charm
Bald superman's point of view.winsquare2 | Oct. 6, 2014 | See all winsquare2's reviews »
When i first started this game, I had high hopes.After finishing it,i was pleasantly surprised.
As far as Hitman games go,Absolution definitely has the best graphics.The amount of detail that goes into each level is remarkable from the weapons to the civilians you encounter.
Although, the story does suffer from being too linear,as it involves Agent 47 just hopping from location to location,the levels themselves are like a world you want to walk around in for hours.The number of ways that Absolution lets you kill your targets is amazing.Going in guns blazing or playing it stealthy,the choice is most certainly yours.Furthermore, the game itself has its difficult and funny moments as well.All in all,if you're looking for a reason to start playing dress up as a bald man,Absolution is a great start.
