HITMAN: Absolution follows cold-blooded assassin Agent 47™ as he takes on his most dangerous—and personal—contract to date.
Betrayed by those he once trusted and hunted by the police, Agent 47 finds himself caught in the center of a dark conspiracy and propelled through a corrupt and twisted world.
Donning the suit of this legendary assassin, you become a deadly marksman with the ability to blend into plain sight, kill with your bare hands, and fashion weapons from almost anything.
Take on the role of Agent 47 and his many extraordinary talents, then ask: what kind of Hitman are you?
- Blend In: Impersonate your victims and hide in plain site. A huge variety of disguises offer you deep strategies, new options, and the element of surprise.
- Improvised Weapons: Turn everyday items into instruments of death. Unique weapons can be found anywhere, meaning exploration can pay off in amazing ways.
- Instincts Mode: See the world through the eyes of the ultimate assassin. Predict enemy patrols, identify escape routes, temporarily enhance your disguise - and focus your “Point-Shooting” abilities to unleash a barrage of insanely accurate shots.
- Choice: Approach every level in your own unique style: Silent Assassins, you can prey from the shadows and never leave a trace. Action Junkies, go in guns-blazing through the well-guarded front door. Undetectable or unrelenting, what kind of Hitman are you?

Hitman Absolution picks up not long after Blood Money's conclusion where Agent 47 is betrayed by his handler at the ultra secretive agency, the story begins with the assassin in a difficult position that will outline the entire context of the story that proceeds. The story is well written and even manages to inject a little humour into its somber backdrop to its credit. The voice acting is of good quality and thankfully Dave Bateson returns as 47 which was for a time uncertain, purists become attached and rightly so. The disdain with the decision of Ubisoft in axing the voice of Michael Ironside as Sam Fisher has drawn widespread criticism for changing a winning formula.
Anyway, perhaps the biggest difference that you will notice with Absolution are the graphics. Blood Money was not a bad looking game but this takes it to the next level. The Glacier 2 engine looks fantastic and the crowds come to life even more than they did in Blood Money which were already impressive.
Now, to some drawbacks. The hideout of old is gone and as a result you're stuck with whatever weapons 47 can find in a given level. On the other hand, the contracts mode allows you to stipulate all those formalities, provided that you have found the weapons in game. Alternatively, they can be bought with credits which can be obtained through playing the campaign and contracts, but more on contracts later.
Purists may find Hitman too forgiving when compared to previous versions. Once again the "holding hands" approach of Square Enix titles does appear.Read more ›
Even though parts for me felt quite repetitive, you can tell that the developers have tried to mix things up abit, if you include the landscapes and general areas in which you play. For instance you start of in Chicago and as the story goes on you go to various other areas of the country, one of my favourite parts of the game being in Hope, Dakota, where for me the best missions of the game were.
The game has improved though in terms of physical combat and movement, and the cutscenes are enjoyable as well. The kills this time around seem to have more feeling and weight to them than in previous titles. Overall i would say that i did enjoy the game, and the story was what kept me intouch overall. If it wasn't for the great story, then i don't know if i would have enjoyed it too much, i managed to complete the title in three days, mainly because i was engrosed with what was going to happen next in the story. The game does play well but i think for it to be a perfect 5 stars, i would have to see some more variation to the gameplay, more unique missions and maps.
If you're new to the Hitman series i think you'll find this fresh gameplay approach unique and entertaining, if you're a veteren Hitman gamer however, you may feel it lacking slightly.
Its a relatively simple plot. Assassin kills the wrong type of person, protects their child for a unknown purpose (at first) whilst becoming a target himself. The plus side is that there have been a lot of improvements since the last game.
One of them is the graphics. The attention to detail is so superb it literally looks like you are watching a film in the highest HD.
Combat has had a large overhaul and is relatively easy to master. That's right, 47 can now do unarmed combat at last!
The weapons you can use can range from SMG's to plungers.
Lastly, 'Contracts mode' (Absolutions online mode) is great as you can create and upload your own contracts for Agent 47 to target. You can also upgrade weapons, change the starting costume of 47, change the mission title and backstory etc.
However the game does have problems. One of them is mostly in the campaign mode. The Hitman franchise has always advised players to be stealthy in the levels. In campaign mode, no matter how stealthy you try to be, you usually end up in some kind of shoot out reminiscent of a Jean-Claude-Van-Damme film. Sadly this happened too often for me to fully enjoy the campaign and have no intention of playing that part of it again soon. Another thing is that the campaign is also really short (takes about 12-15 hours).
A shame because this is otherwise a pretty good purchase.
