An Assassin with Style
Voice act is well done in here. Level design nicely laid out. Game just is blast to play. Just check the videos on this Stealth / Action game
A real let down.
This game sucked. If I have to explain all of the new hitman game's new features I would ommit the series features, like the creater's of this new version have done, of the past which were so good! Inside the game the user screen is clutered with all types of unnecessary garbage,useless objects that cannot be ignored,and are a huge distraction. The boards are boring and lack the creative freedom given to the gamer in the Blood Money edition of Hitman game. I fully expected this new game to be a continuation of Blood Money which by the way just happens to rank as my #1 favorite of all time. I hate the fact that after completing a mission, I cannot, chose my own inventory of weapons and the fact that there isn't a map similar to the other games in this series to help me figure out how to go about the game. I actually tried to sell this game back to gamestop three days after it came out after I had waited all of those years praying that the would make another one. What a dissapointment!
The infamous red tie is back!
The guys at Square Enix and IO Interactive did a substantial job delivering another story to the life of Agent 47. The story and how it is divided was executed brilliantly. The graphics are superb, though the sound in dialog is choppy at two points in the game. The score is great, if the suspense heightens, so does the music. Try being sneaky, get spotted, and then start a fire fight, you will see what I mean. And the "1,000 ways to die" style they brought to this installment means countless hours of playing levels over and over. Especially with the challenges that are set forth. And an online contracts mode? This game will be in my collection for an indefinite amount of time. Hitman is a legacy. Overall I gave it 9, because nothing's perfect. Hitman: Absolution is Agent 47 at his best. Intelligent, skilled, lethal.
A TRUE Legendary Game will ALWAYS be a success!
I recall the first Hitman and even the second and third leading up to Blood Money (which I thought was amazing.) The game designers and writer's behind this franchise really know how to piece a story together. This game isn't like your typical 3PS (3rd Person Schooter). There isn't a run and shoot type feel like Modern Warfare and many of the others. The Hitman games present you with a target that requires elimination and it is your task to find the most descreet avenue to achieve such goal. And I am absolutely* sure that HM - Absolution will not drop the torch. From what I've seen of the previews you (playing the role of one of the world's most dangerous assassins, Agent 47) are on the run - being hunted, Quite the twist from what the previous Hitman titles were boasting. I have my chips all in on this one and I am sure that Hitman-Abso will not disappoint like some. The only setback I foresee so far with this one is the fact that it has yet to be given a release date. Yet I've also seen the tragedy that comes with games that are rushed and how easily and quickly they fail. So my hat's off to this game designer - I stand ready to fill the role of the infamous Agent 47!
To start off, this is a really fun game. It was my first Hitman game and I'm glad I picked it up. That being said, it's short of being a great game. This is mostly due to the fact that the story is bland. It may have had more meaning to me if I had played the other games but it just seemed very generic. It hit a lot of cliches and seemed to be dragging me places more than immersing me in the game. Another complaint is that the game is very short. It took me around 8 or 9 hours to beat and because I don't really replay games I'm just sort of done with it now. But I loved the short amount of time I spent with it. The mechanics worked well, the enemy AI was very fun to play with and I really felt proud after getting through a tough level. (unlike most games where you just have to blast your way through a level) When it comes down to it, people who don't like to replay and 100% games should just rent this. Players who do like to do those things, have a blast.
UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I have waited 6 years. Blood Money took over my life and I can't wait for this to come out. I have waited so long. It's ok that this game might not have the same sandbox features as the first 4, but who cares. ITS HITMAN AND HE'S BACK FOR REVENGE!!! OMG this game is so worth the wait. One of the biggest Hitman fans that ever lived. I freakin love this game!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!
6 years after Hitman Blood Money....47 finds himself once again back in the fray...doing what he does best....in Absolution--picking up from where BM left off-- Diana faked 47's death at the end of BM and goes rogue in Absolution leading 47 to the care of Victoria and experimental girl subject. I think the storyline is good and the mechanics of this game are pretty great...I also like the instinct mode and hiding mode...this makes the game very realistic...imagine 47 walking by you in disguise trying to blend in....this challenges the player to skillfully blend in,I think it should stay in the game for the next Hitman in development. Though the graphics and sound are well executed there are some cons of this game,for instance...you no longer have your syringe needles for some reason,I think its a shame those were missing from the game,I found it amusing that in BM you could poision a food or drink...they may have taken it out in Absolution for unknown reasons but I'd like to see it return....furthermore the weapons customization isnt there anymore,again I need to see a return. Other than that the game was well done....when you hide in dumpsters or closets its more realistic now and you can also climb on stuff and pull ppl from below and your fighting skills are more better than how it was in BM....in BM all you could do is Head butt,push and do a 1 2 left right punch...in Absolution you are actually engaged hand to hand based on corresponding buttons.Dragging a body has a better speed pace and there is a run button now you also use more environmental weaponry and distractions rather than coins used in BM. Overall the game is excellent and in the end its clear Diana is still alive proving 47 wounded her with a non lethal shot,and she faked her death...as told in the game on one of the last missions...she is working with 47 again though I don't know what's next in the sequel
A absolute work of art, I am so pumped for this game i could cry.
Bald, A barcode and deadly as heck!!!
Hitman rocks the stealth genre and is a blast to play! Agent 47 is mean, pale and would push anyone over a rail. I still play Hitman Blood Money to this day and even though it's old (2006) it's still super addicting. My main goal for Hitman Absolution is to be more stealthy mainly because I was very trigger happy in Blood Money. Anyway this game is going to be great maybe not game of the year but it will still be the best stealth game of this year. Hitman originally came out in 2000 for pc so Metal Gear and Hitman are some of the oldest stealth games ever. I would say Splinter Cell as well but Hitman and Metal gear both came before Splinter Cell. To finish my preview buzz I just want to say Hitman is an amazing game with a great story and tons of variety to take out your targets. Thanks again
I can't believe it ?
There must be way too many people with nothing to do , but , look for something to criticize . I for one have never seen a "nun" look like that with lip stick etc. , if the saying goes "all is fair in love and war" anyone I mean anyone could see those girls were in disquise and there was nothing more to it !
