Welcome Back 47....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hitman Absolution: Professional Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Its been a long wait but Agent 47 is back and is better then ever. Absolution is different from previous games and feels more like a movie and there are more cut scenes then previous games. I like the direction IO Interactive have taken and it really helps bring the story alive.
Absolution still remains true to its roots, stealth gameplay is back and there is even more sneaking then ever. As with other hitman games you can play this how you want. You can go in all guns blazing or remain hidden its up to you. I personally like to play as a Silent Assassin and try to make things look like an accident. There is a scoring system now so depending on your actions will depend on your score.
You now have a mini map in your HUD, there is no bigger map available (like in Blood Money) instead you have something called Instinct. This allows 47 to see targets and other NPC's and to track their movements.
Weapon customisation is back but takes longer then in Blood Money. You have to play Contracts Mode in order to earn money to purchase new parts for weapons.
Contracts Mode allows you to create personal contracts for friends and other Hitman players. You play any one of the levels and select Marks for the contract. You get to decide which outfit 47 needs to wear, which weapon he has to use and many other choices.
This is a very fun game to play and will not disappoint. There are so many ways to carry out a contract so the game has a very good replay value. There are challenges to complete which can not be done on one play through. This game is highly recommended
