Conclusion: Also included is a Contracts mode where people can create their own custom hits within each game level and you can choose the NPCs, the weapons and disguises you want to use. And you can even challenge your friends or others to complete your contracts in a faster time then you or more efficiently so they score more points. At any time you can play a Contract mode game during story mode by simply pausing the game and choosing that option.
Summary: Six years seems like a long time to have to wait for a new Hitman installment, but I/O Interactive certainly kept themselves busy during that time. With a powerful engine under the hood (in the form of Glacier2), the baldest assassin of all-time is stepping out with a taut, exciting adventure that doesn't skimp on its depth of exploration. Is Absolution the best Hitman yet? Maybe not, but it's definitely a contender.
Conclusion: But, unlike the other best selling FPS hits of 2012, such as Call of Duty: Black Op’s 2 and Battlefield 3 , Absolution injects a welcome twist on the classic gun game. Its biggest achievement is its ability to grant the player choice. The choice to silently take out NPCs or storm around the level like a man possessed. The choice to knock off your targets with grand style or quiet efficiency.
Excerpt: Product Description EUROPE PSN account is required for online play. HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.
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. Admittedly, I've been pretty scared of what IO Interactive has to offer since the trainwreck that was Kane & Lynch 2.
Excerpt: The gaming world has been waiting a long time to slip on a sleek black suit and dust off its piano wire. A wait so long, in fact, that it stretches way back into the previous console generation. In the meantime there has been a lot of pressure on Square Enix to deliver the goods and produce a classic Hitman experience and it is good to be able to say that, in some ways at least, they have succeeded with that goal.
