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.
Excerpt: It's been a long time since we got to step into the shoes of the big, bald, barcoded assassin known only as Agent 47. Thankfully, Hitman: Absolution was worth the wait, providing the biggest game ever with a myriad of environments that will test would-be assassins on all levels, and rate their progress using a very harsh and unforgiving scoring system.
Conclusion: Even with trial and error style gameplay falling out of style, Hitman: Absolution makes absorbing and learning every last detail attractive and engaging. This point of entry is technically more flawed, but it's potentially more interesting for skilled and patient players. You try, you fail, and in time you maniacally celebrate the payoff when it all finally falls into place. It’s easy to forgive Absolution’s flaws when that process works so well.
Excerpt: Hitman’s past has been as cold and calculated as its murderous anti-hero, each game cloned from the last to create a technically better sequel with technically better mechanics. Absolution defies this tradition. It’s a sexy, stylish Hitman game, where groups of leather-clad nun assassins sport cool crew names like “The Saints,” and southern tycoons speak in soundbites and say things like “Yeehaw” before slapping their knee and spitting out chewing tobacco.
Pros: Varied missions with seemingly limitless options, Sleek, sexy style, Bountiful improvements to the basic gameplay
Cons: A sometimes muddled story, That there aren't enough traditional levels, Seriously, what’s up with the bloom lighting?
Summary: For all that was evident throughout the entire course of this title, one thing is sure – IO Interactive hasn’t chosen to rush with the game at any point. There’s a certain vibe of finesse that’s apparent all the while. The new engine that the developer has prepared handles the AI, the crowds and all other aspects without any hassles. But on the downside, like the game’s disguise mechanics, its checkpoint system too proved to be disappointing.
Excerpt: Agent 47 has suffered in his life. From his vile creation and eventual torture at the hands of Dr. Ort-Meyer to the emotional scarring that has come with some of his more personal contracts, Agent 47’s life is one of deep pain. The one constant that has held him together is Diana Burnwood – his handler. His voice in The Agency, Diana has served as guide, conscience, and contract delivery for 47 while remaining the closest thing that he has to a friend.
Summary: L’agent 47 est de retour. Il s’était un peu fait désirer sur la new-gen (hormis Blood Money sur Xbox 360 mais ce n’était pas de la vraie new-gen). L’homme au code-barres a donc été discret, comme il sait si bien le faire, pendant 6 ans. Ces six années au calme ont-elles été bénéfiques ? Spoiler : les danois de IO livrent un jeu où l’infiltration n’est pas qu’une promesse. La réponse risque donc d’être oui.
Pros: De la bonne infiltration de derrière les fagots, Un jeu looooong, Le choix, quoi ! LE CHOIX !, Une réalisation de haute volée, Un humour noir bien senti, Les différents modes de difficulté, Des missions variées
Cons: Le système de déguisements un peu frustrant au début, Le système de couverture a un peu de mal, Pas de nouveauté majeure, Des petites baisses de rythme
Summary: Det er en kæmpe forløsning, at Hitman er så godt et spil, som det viser sig at være. Som dansk medie vil man så gerne, at danske tiltag skal lykkes og det gør det med Absolution. Et superfedt spil, som kan anbefales på det varmeste.
