Summary: Decent game, but it lacks the feel of the previous games. The older games kind of just dropped you off in a situation & left you to your own devices, where as this one feels like you only have two, three paths at most in any level so that all the big set piece moments work.
Summary: Absolution is the 5th game in the Hitman series. It fails to hold up to its predecessors. Previous games had Agent 47 placed into a level with an objective to assassinate a target, while there's a few levels like this a lot of the game is made up with filler.
Pros: Some old school type levels, nice graphics
Cons: Broken disguise system, not enough targets, hand holding, list of objectives
Summary: There's been so many games I have purchased inexpensively and never beat since they've been so average. I consider this a game in that category. Having played two of the previous games, I have to say that the graphics, and more importantly the controls, are far superior in this iteration.
Summary: Like many Hitman fans, I could not wait for the release of Absolution. I've thoroughly enjoyed all the previous releases: Silent Assassin, Blood Money, etc etc. The day I received this game, I immediately tore it open & got right down to playing.
Summary: After reading the rave reviews here on Amazon, I purchased this game a bit over a month ago. I had several glitch issues with the game. I would play several levels, then the game would freeze and lose all of my saves. I eventually worked through the glitches and finished the game.
Summary: - amazing graphics - nice cut scenes (ironically most of the action is in cut scenes) most of the time this new hitman is HIDEMAN ... always sneaking around to accomplish the objective unlike double agent.
Summary: Being a huge fan of the Hitman series, having played all of the previous games, i'd like to get off my chest the things that might make you reconsider whether you should buy it or not; and since there are many reviews with only very high expectations and appraisal, you can convince yourself and...
Excerpt: Hitman Absolution is the 5th Instalment of the popular franchise and in my opinion is by far the best of the series. The graphics are greatly improved and far outweigh the previous Hitman titles, The game play is excellent with more abilities, a huge array of weapons, improved close combat, various...
Pros: Good graphics, Excellent Game - play, Easy controls, Great value for money .
Cons: Can be difficult at times, Repetitive game - play at times .
Summary: No doubt is that a great game. Violence is there in spades, but this game
will heavily punish you if you have serious blood lust. You can choose however
you want to hunt your targets, but the game rewards you only if you silently
approach your target, using non-lethal techniques.
