This review is from: Hitman Absolution (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
So it's been 6 years since Blood Money was released. I've been waiting for this game for a long time and it was worth the wait I can say. The graphics have improved A LOT compared to previous Hitman games. There is also online game play called "Contracts" as well which I'm still getting used to.

The good points:

Graphics - major improvement compared to last games

Campaign - the story actually makes clear sense this time. You know what the game is about. I remember playing Hitman: Contracts on PS2 in 2005 I think and I never actually figured out the plot until like a year after completing the game (unless I'm just thick!)

It's more realistic in some situations, for example in Blood Money, you could walk across ledges but whilst doing that, you couldn't shoot at anyone, climb down the ledge, pull people out of windows and such. In this game you can and in reality, if one was a highly trained assassin then I'm guessing they COULD do the above.

Bad points:

Some abilities that were allowed in Blood Money have, unfortunately, been removed in Absolution. One ability is to shoot doors open. You can't do that in this game and another thing I noticed was REALLY disappointed in was that when you are using someone as a human shield, you can't even reload the weapon like you could in Blood Money! I'm like WHAT?!

Something else that irritated me about this game is the way that the point-scoring works. If you so much as even subdue someone and out of necessity, you get points taken off you. It's almost like the game EXPECTS you to go into each level and automatically play like a pro - without killing ANYONE but the target, without subduing anyone and without getting caught. I'm thinking to myself, how is someone who is new to Hitman going to be able to do that?

Apart from this, I'd say that this IS a good game and on some parts it is better than Blood Money but it has it's weak points.
