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.

It's a miracle just how having no multiplayer makes a game so damn good, it's reminiscent of the days of the old consoles where online gaming wasn't big and how developers focussed solely on the single player aspect of a game, it shows a lot, these days there are not enough games like this, with the ABSENCE of multiplayer (yes, there is NO multiplayer and it's not a rushing game either so don't buy it if you're looking for some sort of Assassins Creed with guns type game) you can see just how much effort has gone into this game.

It is NOT a game for the rushing type of player, if this is your first Hitman game (as it is mine) you will get a surprise shock at how slow it is, you cannot simply rush into a place and kill your targets, it will take a long time stealthing your way around the environments, which I must say, are beautiful to look at, the amount of detail is stunning when running in HD, but back to the gameplay, the control mechanics take time to adjust to but are great after a while, they're fluid and avoid that clunky control mechanic seen in some games (RE6 we're looking at you here), as I mentioned previously, this game is SLOW, it forces you to take your time because if you rush, you will die, unless you're playing on easy, which I don't recommend as that will pretty much negate the point of the whole stealth aspect of the game, to stay alive you really really have to think, there are so many ways to kill your target, I had a pleasant surprise on my first one when it said there are TWELVE ways to kill one guy, which basically means a whole lot of replayability.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a fan of the Hitman franchise since the very first one which was a PC exclusive title. I have thoroughly enjoyed every instalment to date, some of them admittedly have been better than others but they're all stellar titles and one of my personal favourite series of games of all time. As far as a quality stealth game goes, it's right up there with Splinter Cell and the Metal Gear games.

Now, I'll go so far as to say that I have not quite finished this new one as yet, although I get the impression I am indeed coming to the end. I shall do what I can to keep this free of spoilers.
If you look at the natural progression of games through the years it's actually quite impressive to see not only just how much it has changed, but what environments you are placed in and what options and tools you have at your disposal with which to find your target, and do what Agent 47 does best.

I shan't go too much into the story, but what I will say is it features a character who we as players of the whole Hitman franchise have really grown accustomed to. I had wondered for a while exactly what level of involvement this character had, and what the makers would do with them. Also, there are plenty of new characters introduced to us, and they, and what they do is simply unheard of in the world of the Hitman games, and it was really good to see Square Enix and I-O think outside the box and provide us with characters that really make us want to carry on playing.

Graphically, the game is nothing spectacular or groundbreaking but the Glacier 2 engine certainly is a solid one, which objects reacting how you expect them to, and textures being what we've become accustomed to in this generation of video games.
