Rated 2 out of 10 by Amir1762 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!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Rahmer227 Fun Game
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.

Rated 9 out of 10 by NotACasualGamer amazing gameplay
This game is unique in that you CANNOT go guns blazing, you cant outrun your enemy and laugh about it. the challenges are very difficult to find and complete flawlessly, lots of replaying the mission for challenges, and for the perfectionist, the ultimate difficulty and mastering every absolution mission. This game is really fun, and despite me writing hardcore, casual gamers could enjoy this on the 2 lower difficulties, rather than the elitist difficulties. I love this game and i was surprised at how good it was for the 10 dollar price. DEFINITELY worth the price. 9/10
Rated 0 out of 10 by jwoods Nothing new
this game looks like it took sooooooooooooo much from splinter cell conviction. the cover system, seeing the enemies path and position (even cheaper than SCC solar goggles), faster movement (which was needed and ill let slide), shooting high objects to kill people below, increased emphasis on stealth. still ive played all the hitman games, and love all the splinter cell games so im getting this for sure. there are still a lot of differences from SCC and this, youre a hitman, changing clothes, and contact with civilians. this game looks rly nice but i can already tell im not gonna want to play it more than once, the gameplay already showed there was only one correct way to go to beat tht level and i have a feeling thats how the whole game is gonnbe. i think this game will be better than SCC's campaign but no match for the coop campaign or the deniable ops which in my opinions are the best two things of the entire splinter cell series. i liked the older hitman games and this one looks like it will easily be the best of the series, but in my opinion second to splinter cell which it lokks so much like now even though i know it used to look nothing like it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ThavenRipper 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by awesomegame10 Just Beautiful...
This game is just fascinating in all it's aspects. The graphics are beautfiul and the world around you contains incredible detail, and, best of all, LIFE. Agent 47's movements are very fluid and "real", which give off a very good feel to the game. Controls are not a problem at all, and the replay value is IMMENSE. I am a new fan of Hitman, and have not played any games before it, hence I cannot say if there are any drastic changes or "drops" in between the games, but if you are trying to look for a new game to entertain you at it's finest, this is the game for you. Overall, Hitman: Absolution has proved a FANTASTIC game that has not only proved to be more than worth the money, but has also convinced me at a 100% level to buy, if any chances of being made, the entire HD Collection of the Hitman series.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Holly 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!

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
