Summary: Agent 47 may have been absent six years since his last outing, but the immaculately-dressed assassin returns as brutal as ever, middle fingers very much on display and upsetting everyone in his way - sometimes even the most reverent of fans.
GPU benchmarks: Hitman Absolution (incl 5760x1080 and frametimes!)
4 August 2013
Excerpt: Hitman: Absolution came out earlier this year, and we've been using it since in our graphics card tests. Today we are presenting the scores of about 50 different GPUs and SLI/Crossfire combinations for this action game.
Summary: I expected to be disappointed by Hitman: Absolution, but I actually had a good time with it. Story mode alone is worth the price of entry, and is well worth playing multiple times if your first run wasn’t on the hardest difficulty (trust me, the hardest difficulty is a joy to play).
Conclusion: Hitman: Absolution is a disappointment. It is not a disappointment because it is a horrible game. It is a disappointment because it has some parts that are good enough to make it the best of the series, but they don’t end up inside a good game.
Conclusion: Hitman: Absolution is a pretty good game that manages to offer different types of experience for different types of players, whether they’re hardcore stealth enthusiasts or people who don’t really like to crawl around while staying in cover.
Pros: +Offers different experiences for different players, +Lots of creative kills, +Gorgeous graphics, +Engaging Contracts multiplayer
Cons: -Not a lot of checkpoints, -Many dull sections between actual assassinations, -Weak story filled with stereotypical characters

While it stumbles in spots and some levels feel out of place, this is the best-playing Hitman yet, and contains some of the most...
Excerpt: After six long years Agent 47 makes his triumphant return in Hitman: Absolution. Ask any fan of the series and they’ll tell you, Blood Money is a tough act to follow, but a lot has been happening with the stealth-action genre lately; just look at the recently released Dishonored, and of course...
Summary: Hitman: Absolution marks the return of Agent 47 after a six year hiatus in the beloved franchise by IO Interactive. The Hitman series of games have continually challenged players with tracking and assassinating various targets across the world, while providing multiple routes in which to accomplish...
Conclusion: There were few people I knew who were more excited for Hitman: Absolution than myself. As the only title in the stealth genre that I've supported, it's been a fun ride. With memories that stretch all the way back from the first title, it's been a series that's always sat warmly in my heart.
