4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Hitman game, but a welcome return, 20 Nov 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I'm gonna keep this short as I've yet to play a lot of the game (only had it a few hours) but rejoice! Fellow Hitman fans can rest assured that after six years, Hitman: Absolution has finally arrived and it lives up to the Hitman name. For me, Blood Money and perhaps Silent Assassin stand as the best Hitman games and though it is incredibly late to the party, Absolution is a great introduction of the Hitman franchise to the 360/PS3 (not including Blood Money on 360 as it was basically a port with better graphics). It's just a shame that by the time Hitman 6 is out we'll have the third Xbox and fourth PlayStation on sale so yet again we'll have to wait a while, which is unlucky because another Hitman game could really push these systems to do some impressive things.

But I digress, back to the point: if you are a Hitman fan, buy this game. If you are a stealth fan, buy this game. If you generally want to avoid the madness surrounding blockbuster shooters like Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 and want something more in line with some other games lately like Dishonored and Assassin's Creed III, then this is a great starting point for you in the Hitman series. Here's to the future for this series, hopefully it sticks around for a lot longer with Hitman 6 arriving much sooner than 2018.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest trilogies of all time, 7 Oct 2012
Christopher Nolan (INCEPTION) delivers possibly the greatest trilogy of all time with The Dark Knight Trilogy - one that rivals the likes of The Lord of the Rings, The Dollars Trilogy, Star Wars and The Godfather Trilogy. Each film is leaps and bounds past the previous installment in terms of quality, with the storyline and set pieces for each film constantly outdoing the last. Batman Begins sees Christian Bale (AMERICAN PSYCHO) tackling Bruce Wayne's inner demons and becoming Batman for the first time, taking on his former mentor Ra's Al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson, SCHINDLER'S LIST) and saving Gotham City in the process. The 2008 sequel - the sensational The Dark Knight - sees Batman facing off against his most infamous nemesis; the Joker, portrayed in chilling style by the late Heath Ledger (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) in a performance that ranks as one of the greatest villains in cinema history and most definitely the greatest cinema villain in a long while. The third and final film in the trilogy is The Dark Knight Rises. Batman's last stand against the corrupt and the evil shows him struggling to regain every ounce of power he once had to come out of retirement and face his deadliest foe yet: the seemingly unstoppable Bane - menacingly portrayed by Tom Hardy (BRONSON) - who challenges Batman not only to his physical limit, but also pushes his mental skills to their absolute peak.

Fantastic supporting cast from Gary Oldman (DRACULA), Anne Hathaway (BRIDE WARS), Morgan Freeman (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), Michael Caine (THE ITALIAN JOB) and many others prove that The Dark Knight Trilogy is not just a series of average blockbusters which boast big names and have nothing to show for it - it's a trilogy that enlists the best director of his generation, some of the most iconic actors of all time, one of the biggest comic book icons on the face of the Earth, stunning plot twists and sensational set pieces. Absolutely essential viewing not only for those who want to see the Batman legacy given justice in film, but for anyone with a mere passing interest in just watching some damned good films.
