Product Details:

HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted - and now hunted by the police - he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.

  • Showcasing Glacier 2 technology: HITMAN: ABSOLUTION has been built from the ground up, boasting a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game and sound design.
  • Contracts Mode: Create your own custom hits by choosing the level, targets, weapons and the rules of assassination in an innovative new online mode. You play to create, which means that no contract is impossible and that you're in control of how the contract is shaped. Contracts can be shared with friends or the whole Hitman community and the money that you earn will unlock weapons, upgrades and disguises.
  • Freedom of Choice: Stalk your prey, fight them head on or adapt as you go along. As Agent 47 the choice is yours thanks to highly evolved gameplay mechanics and a ground-breaking AI system. Like a predator stalking its prey, to a storm of gun fire and everything in between, highly evolved game mechanics and a sophisticated new AI-System provide a rewarding experience, no matter which style Agent 47 chooses for his missions.
  • Experience a Living, Breathing World: In the world of Hitman: Absolution every moment can become a story as unique characters, rich dialogue and Hollywood standard performances combine to create a gameplay experience like no other. Characters come to life as players make their way through the world triggering a wide range of reactions. Supported by outstanding performance and motion captures by Hollywood actors, every moment can become a story in HITMAN: ABSOLUTION.
  • Disguises: As Agent 47 the identity of almost anyone you meet is yours for the taking. Immobilise your prey, steal their outfit and use your instincts to blend in and deceive your enemies. Blend in and impersonate your victims with a huge variety of disguises. Once in disguise, the world around you will change accordingly, so choose carefully.
  • Instinct Mode: See the world through the eyes of Agent 47 and become the world's deadliest assassin. Using Hitman: Absolution's Instinct Mode you'll predict enemy movement, discover new ways to kill and use high powered weaponry with deadly accuracy.

See the world through the eyes of Agent 47. Predict an enemy's likely patrol path. Observe the environment looking for ways to escape, weapons to use or shortcuts to take. Use Instinct to blend in among enemies' ranks or impersonate people by hiding in plain sight. Or be more aggressive and engage in Point-Shooting - a new feature, giving the player a last-stand chance taking down multiple opponents.

"Hitman: Absolution is an open world game with one objective: Execution. It's not open world in the sense of your average sandbox game and not choice in the way of a lot of RPGs these days. Instead the game gives you choice when it comes to how you carry out your objectives in an open world style environment. You can play the same level twice and complete it in very different ways. With this in mind Square Enix has also created Contracts. In this mode, you can use any level in the game to create your own assassination contracts, adding another layer of depth to this already robust game. With tons of options in both modes of the game, IO Interactive has created an incredible gaming experience. Pick this up today. Power to the Players!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding,exceeds expectation 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constant Crashes As a long time Hitman fan had high hopes for this game. However after getting the game for ps3 and even after patching the game throws out a series of constant freezes throughout the intro mission. Hence the low score. Thought maybe I have a bad copy so got another but still same freezing in same area. Have checked my system and this is the only game it locks up on. If they ever fix it which I highly doubt it would be a 10 star game, but honestly the way it sits is barely worth a buck for a coaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agent 47 This game is great and once you star playing it you wont be able to stop, there are so many different ways to complete each mission. Going back and turning up the difficulty gives you a rewarding experiance and makes it alot harder to blend in. I dont know why people say that this game isnt about stealth because im sure that on a low diffucluty you could just shoot everything that moves but while doing so you would only be getting about 20% out of the game. I you like stealth games get this one.
