    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.

      I spend quite a bit of time playing games but I still consider myself a casual gamer. I frankly don't have the experience of skill to complete this game as a stealthy Assassin and even if i desired to, the mechanism for changing disguises is the biggest flaw in an entertaining game. I can't speak for hardcore gamers. But if you are like me and usually start on an easier setting, you should enjoy this game. At least on the easier settings you can stand and shoot it out with your enemies or play a more stealthy game. It's great in the way the 1980's action movies that you suspended reality for 2 hours and watch Stallone gun down 60 guys without dying. It's a fun action shoot 'em up game with a pretty good storyline and good voice acting. Now that the price has dropped there's no reason for casual gamers not to drop $30 and have a good time whether or not you have experience with action/ stealth games. This is my first Hitman game and the best in genre I have played on this generation of consoles.

      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!

      I've been waiting a long time for a new Hitman& we've finally got one & it has to be one of my favorite games I've played this year, & unlike most older games that come to next gen it still feels like Hitman only with a few new tricks up his sleeve, & there is challenges with each mission so once you beat single player it has replay value in it, the only problem I have with it is there is in today's world it's always about multiplayer, it just keeps a game going until a new one is released, & Hitman just doesn't have any type of multiplayer & even though I said it has replay value there is only so many times you can play one story

      Having only put any significant amount of time into Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, I don't have much experience with the series. I briefly played Double Agent, and didn't like it, and I'm not much of a stealth game fan. I picked this up on a whim for cheap, and the series has certainly improved. The graphics are terrific, and the stealth feels not only more flexible, but more forgiving. I don't want to turn a mission into a shootout, but I can if I make a mistake. It also adds an element of replayability trying to perfect a stealthy assassination.

      Hitman Absolution take what's good about the past Hitman games and improve on it. You still get to change into disguise. If you get too close and they might see thru your disguise.Many weapons to choose from and the shooting is solid. So if you ever decide to go blast in the front door, you won't feel handicapped. The story is going in a good direction. Won't spoil it. Let's just say it's setting up for a sequel. Another great Hitman game. Looking forward to a sequel.

      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
