Synopsis


The suit, the barcode tattoo and the iconic shaved head. No one means business like Agent 47. When the cold-blooded assassin has been contracted, you know the job will be carried out effectively, efficiently and secretly. Hitman: Absolution has you slip on the black gloves of the hired gun on his most dangerous job yet. Hunted by the police, he finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy after being betrayed by those he once trusted. Now he must set out through a corrupt and twisted world in search for answers.

Put on the suit of the legendary assassin, Agent 47, in Hitman: Absolution. Embark on a journey through a corrupt and twisted world in search of answers behind a dark conspiracy of which you find yourself at the center. Powered by new proprietary Glacier 2 technology, the game has been constructed from the ground up, and allows you to experience the brutal, raw and intense adventure with a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and cutting-edge game and sound design. Enjoy the freedom to eliminate your targets as you see fit, whether you prefer to stalk from the shadows or burst in guns blazing. But beware — the world around you realistically responds to your every tactic thanks to the fully evolved game mechanics and a highly developed AI system. Jump into the iconic suit like never before with the Instinct mode, which allows you to see the world through the eyes of a deadly assassin. Identify weapons and escape routes, predict enemy patrols and engage in Point-Shooting to eliminate entire rooms efficiently with your expert marksmanship. Blend into your environments and pose as your victims with a variety of disguises, and take advantage of the new actions, options and, of course, the element of surprise. With the target squarely on your back, it's time to slip on the black gloves and take on the contract of your life in Hitman: Absolution.

    This game has it all. Gameplay. Graphics. Easy to jump in. An aw.esome game for any gamer level. I love it. It reminds me alot of Max Payne 3 only better. I really like 3rd person shooters. This ranks up there with Gears of War and Call of Duty. If you are on the fence about this game, BUY IT. I guarantee you will enjoy it.

    All I can say is Hitman Absolution is a great game. The only people that will hate this game are the ones that like to run and gun shooting up everything in site. Hitman has never been about that. It has a lot of replay value I can play it over and over and have a different situation every time. Great game

    Hitman: Absolution. This game truly lives up to it's name and the company itself, Square Enix. This game is the only Hitman I've played so far and looked on YouTube for Blood Money and Silent Assassin. What I've seen so far is that Absolution has obviously improved A LOT. Graphics, audio, storyline, and gameplay is extravagant. This game is for players who are able to deal with patience because you are going to experience where you can execute your targets in the beginning of the game, but then you won't be able to from where the game starts rating you in your progress. I thought that was bad, but at the same time, if you had the temptation to begin assassinating your targets for fun, do that and then restart to your checkpoint so you won't lose rating points. But overall, I really would recommend this game to all people who are into Hitman! Get it now!

    Hitman is back with a vengeance. Awesome game but terrible save system. Every time when you save a game, it cause previous section enemeies spawn in their place.
