Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Standard Edition


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?

Key Features
  • 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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfection ... at a price 23 Nov. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Perhaps the defining characteristic of the Hitman series was its flawed genius. Clunky gameplay and a plethora of bugs were offset by novel originality and an atmospheric sandbox world. In `Hitman: Absolution', IO Interactive have perfected the formula albeit at a price.

First off, the perfection: never before has Agent 47 been so charged with menace. What's more, you feel like a killer, a professional whose trade is artful murder. This has been pulled off in a couple of ways. First, IO have brought a physicality to 47 which was missing from the previous games and translates into every kill. Second, enemies can be taken down with far greater flexibility - no more sneaking up behind them at just the right moment only to somehow miss with your garrotte. Third, the shooting system is far more innovative. The new `instinct' system - which allows 47 to blend into his surroundings and monitor his foes - also allows `point shooting': i.e. stopping time to tag your targets before effortlessly taking them down in one deadly sweep. For diehards, this may be cheating, but its availability is limited and, besides, it's by no means forced upon you, acting as a cool flourish rather than a central gameplay mechanic.

However, there's a price to this: the free form sandbox gameplay in the previous games hasn't been left intact. Likely to make room for a smoother world with fewer bugs, IO have streamlined levels. The upshot of this is that the world is more economical, the gameplay richer somehow. But the structure is more linear and the settings themselves chronologically compartmentalised into sections. Generally speaking, there's just one main path through each level, with few detours - and stealth is a constant must as certain enemies will see through disguises.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a little short of being great 9 Oct. 2014
By Saad
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who had never played any of the older Hitman games it was always going to feel awkward jumping in when several older games have been released, though in the end Absolution was more than good enough to turn me in to a convert. There are a few drawbacks but in general this is a solid game that's only a few steps away from being one of the true greats.

To start with, the game has done really well in terms of presentation. The graphics look slick, the voice acting is very well done, the music sets a fantastic tone and the voice actors are all competent in their own right. It's all well executed and does a good job of creating a fitting atmosphere for the game.

The story however is just okay. The plot itself isn't all that ridiculous considering that this is a game but the characters are just caricatures and most of them are sorely in need of some depth; this being my first Hitman game also made it feel like I missed some greater context sometimes which didn't exactly help with feeling immersed.

The gameplay on the other hand feels great. Most of the game puts you in open ended levels where you can kill your targets in all sorts of creative ways and which gives you a lot of room to explore and experiment. You can use any of the dozens of weapons that are at your disposal but also make use of the environment, ranging anywhere from car explosions to inconspicuous electrocutions. Absolution is at its best when you explore the level to slowly and carefully plan your move before striking your targets all the while managing to avoid raising any eyebrows. Patience is most certainly a virtue here.

The game also offers plenty of replayability.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a hit, maaaaan. 9 Sept. 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
I first played this upon its original release a few years ago and came away, well, unsatisfied with 47's latest offering. Time having gone by and most of the experience being forgotten though, I picked it up again on the cheap to give it a second chance and see whether or not I was just 'not in the mood' when I last played it. Well...

- The Story -
As I remembered, the story was the only redeeming part of the game and I still think that it is a quite enjoyable ride.
Hitman games have never taken too much time to go into great detail, they've always told you what you need to do and let you plod straight into the next mission.
Absolution is a far cry from that setup though with as many cutscenes as any other modern game and, well, I kind of liked it. It was nice to see a different side of 47's character as well as have some of the 'targets' be a bit more fleshed out, rather than just being 'another target' as I feel in other games. I actually felt like I wanted to kill somebody because of their actions, what they were trying to do or simply because I thought they were a d**k.
All the Hitman games have had good stories but Absolution easily has the best way of presenting the story, rather than the pages of dialog and text that I usually don't bother with in the other games (because I want to play a game, not read text).

- Graphics -
It's a better looking game than the other titles, that's to be expected. Even for the time of it's release though, the graphics aren't spectacular, especially with some of the 'main characters' having some awful looking textures that make them look partly zombified.
