It is a fun game, I love where you can go into slow motion and select your targets and see them die in slo-mo. Just an awesome game and a great story line.
Agent 47 is back and really needs some hair tonic
Hitman Absolution is going to rock and is going to look great with my Hitman Blood Money game. I've beaten Blood Money for both Ps2 and Xbox 360 although I currently only own it for Xbox 360. There are tons of stealth games out there but if you want variety then play Hitman because there are so many ways to kill your target such as shooting your target, gagging your target, killing and making it look like an accident and just so many more ways. I'm rooting for Max Payne 3 for game of the year because it was my most anticipated game of this year and it's my favorite game of this year but I can't wait for Hitman because even after I beat Hitman Absolution, I can go back and replay the missions in new ways because there's so much variety. Agent 47 is king of the assassins sorry Ezio and Altair and this game is going to be awesome. I may have to call in sick at my job for this game no just kidding but I will play this Thanks again
Some Things to Consider.
This game is for a certain kind of gamer. The kind of gamer that has lots of time and patience. In your basic Hitman game it's all about stealth. This game is different from the others, because it is really time consuming to do it all quietly. If you hope to do a short level quietly it'll take about fourty-five minutes. The enemys are just too clumped to really be able to do it quietly. And you can't count on diguises to work because everybody knows everybody. I must say about Hitman:Absolution though that the gameplay is very fun. Even if you do get caught it's fun to fight your way out.The graphics are breath-taking and with all the other conversations going on amongst backround characters it feels real. The weapon variety is the largest I've seen. There's kinves, silver ballers, revolvers, rope, fists, bottles, assault rifles, smg's, and lots more. The mode choices made the game good for rookies and pros. Whether you go around enemies, kill them, or just go in guns blazing the game is a lot of fun. So I recommend this for your Christmas list or birthday. (and if you don't like this it's a good idea to try Splinter Cell:Conviction.
I gott he for free from xbox good graphics seems like a challenging game. I never played any of the games seems like a strategy game.
Love Blood Money? YOU'LL LOVE Absolution.
I'm a hardcore stealth gamer. Played the nuts out of Splinter Cell Conviction and Hitman Blood Money. The Hitman series has never really been the sharpest tool in the shed as far as gameplay goes. Quirky controls, gun mechanics, you could hit a guy in the head with a book and he wouldn't investigate, etc. That's what gave it the charm. It was more the atmosphere of this series and cool things you could do that had me coming back for more. WITH absolution?? Everything we love and more. They've tightened up alot of the control issues. Graphics are stellar. GREAT Hitman atmosphere. Still has quirky issues with gameplay but that's what we've all come to love about the series. If you love Splinter Cell games, stealth, THINKING, patient games. This is for you. I would highly suggest picking up 'Blood Money' as well to get as much hitman action as you can wave a stick at. Definite Buy.
Better graphics doesnt mean better game...
As you can probably already tell I wasnt happy with this game. Yes it had better graphics, yes it had better sound quality, but that doesnt mean a better game. The controls worked well, but took alittle getting used too. The reason, however, I put the gameplay score so low was because they took out something every Hitman game had, customization. They gave you a set loadout every mission which could be understandable since he isnt part of the orginization anymore, but hes a professional "hitman" so he should be able to be resourceful. Granted there are many ways to complete missions, but I miss my Silverballers and sniper rifle. While the missions themselves lose thier interest after awhile you can keep playing missions other players have created, but even that grows old quickly. Overall I just didnt care about the game and would rather play Blood Money or something. I dont believe this game is horrible, but is more for a specialized crowd like James Bond games.
Good to a point....
I picked this game up because it actually looked fun and I had never tried the hitman series before. Its a pretty good game once you get the hang of it. It has its moments where it shines and has some blunders as well. To me instinct is great when it comes to pin point shooting but fails when it comes to disguises. Disguises are kind of a joke. If you become a security guard only security guards will notice you but if you use instinct you tilt your head down and hope they don't notice you...lol That part is a joke and of course the parts where there is always a bin to dump a dead body. Other than that it has a lot of potential! Being silent and deadly at points has its advantages but if you want to go in guns blazing you lose points for doing so. Not a huge fan of the points system but I guess that what makes it fun to play over and over again. The story is a little off but maybe I am just not familiar with how the last game left off? It has a major glitch with the save game feature. This for some people is a deal breaker. Square Enix refuses to acknowledge this flaw but it is there nonetheless. When you save a game on your 360 hard drive its hit or miss whether or not it will become corrupted. When it becomes corrupted you will have to restart from the beginning of the game over and over again. The only fix to this is xbox live. If you have xbox live you can enable cloud storage to save you game and it will work just fine time and time again. But if you don't have Live you are out whatever money you put into the game unless you can get a USB storage device to save your game. Or of course if you have the time in one sitting to play thru the whole game...lol If you can get around this glitch you will have a pretty good time playing Absolution....
bringing back the classics
another game that i loved growing up to me this wont be a game i choose to get for the multiplayer but i cant wait for this game to get crackin on the campaign this game will be sic stalking your prey
A Weapon of Choice
Now first let me say, options. This game is based off of options you choose, and not story wise, gameplay wise. This is what makes Hitman amazing. The graphics and design are superior, the voice acting is solid, and it makes for many hours of play time, since you'll want to conquer everything. The story is well written, with plenty of environments to help gameplay, my personal favorite mission is one of the first missions in China town, where it shows you just how many options are available. The game only has one downside, which is that I can only play it for so many hours at a time, but besides that, it's stellar.
this game, like the other hitman games in the series, has an amazing storyline. i was a giant fan of the previous hitman games and when i found out this was coming out i preordered it as soon as i could. my friends and i all got addicted to blood money and were constantly playing the story over and over again, wishing there would be some sort of map pack released with new levels to add onto the story. this game answered those hopes by having the contracts online mode. there are so many new ways to do each level, with new targets created and different ways to complete them. my only complaints are that you cannot customize your guns in between missions. and that you are ranked in each mission. overall, id say the game is a great game to play. the missions are challenging, and have a lot of different things to do in each of them to achieve your objectives. making the replay value extremely high.
