Cool Hitman Gamelajvjjajajaaaa | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
Winner of lots of rewards Hitman Absolution is third-person shooter game. This is similar to the others but much better, all of it. Better graphics, atmosphere and gameplay. Tons of weapons designs. There is also Deus Ex disguise somewhere. Sniper challenges and more. The gameplay is mostly stealth. You play as Agent 47 and you're hunted by the police. Awesome long story with cool cut scenes, choose freely your weapons and ways to kill while your going to your target. Kill or sneak, take the personality of those who you meet.
From Tobias Rieper to Ben Frankiln. A long journey.Obsessor | July 30, 2014 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
In first Hitman, Codename 47, Agent 47 signs in a hotel as Tobias Rieper. Fourteen years have passed, we've been to many places with the bald assassin. And I for one want to go even further.
Don't listen to people saying this part of adventures of the jolly assassin are bad. Catching cold in middle ages was bad. This game isn't bad. Just try it, plunge into the story and it will suck you in, I guarantee you will forget about ramblings of hardcore fans. It's the story of betrayal and revenge that matters in Absolution. It's "Ben Franklin" in Hawaii themed dressing-gown strangling fake nuns. It may sound hilarious. It is, when it can be. And isn't when it shouldn't.
Graphically the game shines(or maybe it's Agent's head...). In terms of sounds and music it's very, very good.
Absolution is linear. There is one path through a level that is "best." That I can't argue, even if I wanted to. You won't have much freedom. But on the other hand there are hundreds of challenges to complete. Finding a way to do that is proving to be quite fun indeed.
My conclusion - if you liked any of the previous Hitman games, you will enjoy Absolution. And if you haven't played as the bald assassin before, well... This game is sure to be a good start.
best hitman.hateah | July 29, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »
that's the best game of the whole series. First you started something like a tutorial where it shows you what your capable of. The time freeze is just an amazing ability which gives u the opportunity to shoot multiple enemies just in few seconds. Hitman is the master of the clothes-changing. His missions is to revenge for the kill of his close friend. He is taking care of her daughter which she is getting out of a lot of troubles all the time. There is a lot of shooting and action during the whole game. You won't regret if you buy it. The graphics are so real and amazing they can't be described. The shooting and aiming is also very very good.
A fun stealth game to play.alanmaz567 | July 12, 2014 | See all alanmaz567's reviews »
The gameplay is fun, you can go on a killing spree to make it to the end of the map or you can sneak past the enemies to make it to the end, the choice is yours. The Requirements for this game are low and the game looks visually beautiful. This hitman game plays almost exactly the same as the previous ones. The game has an OK storyline. There are allot of hidden paths in every level which gives the game a feeling to go back to a specific level and find the hidden passages, which may help you when you want to get allot of points for finish a level. I recommend getting this game on a sale.
Good Stealth game, weak Hitmanjackhitman | June 13, 2014 | See all jackhitman's reviews »
I followed this series since the start and i was really looking forward to playing ABsolution after so many years without a new installment, but sadly, this game just didn't live up. It looks gorgeus and controls nicely, but some of the gameplay mechanics make no sense and overall it's too linear.
If you're looking for a good stealth game, Absolution is as good or better than anything in recent years, if you are looking for a Hitman game, go for Blood Money.
