Hitman: Absolution – Review (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Square Enix and IO Interactive have brought back Agent 47 in all his glory in Hitman Absolution, the fifth instalment in the Hitman series. Once again we are given many choices in eliminating set targets – whether we go in all guns blazing or silently and stealthily or even take them out and slip away as if we were never even there making things look like an accident.

Hitman: Absolution Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been over six years since Agent 47, the bald Hitman with a barcode on his head, last went on a killing spree and, in the intervening years since, the game’s industry has changed enormously. So it hardly comes as a surprise that Hitman: Absolution marks somewhat of a fresh direction for IO Interactive’s stealthy series.

  • Conclusion: When playing to its strengths, Hitman: Absolution is a genuinely great game. Overall, though, it feels slightly disappointing, simply because it doesn’t spend enough time playing to those strengths. Too much time is spent trawling through levels which feel like filler. If anything, it just feels like the developers didn’t really know what was working well and what wasn’t.

Hitman Absolution Review

PlayDevil

  • Summary: " Hitman Absolution " is a roaring success. It looks and plays great. Whilst today’s Call of Duty crowd won’t necessarily like it, fans of the series will love the fact that the core gameplay remains intact, and the overall storyline is far more coherent than previous titles. The game is properly hard though, and the checkpointing system woeful. If you want an old-school murder simulator, Absolution is great.

  • Excerpt: Hitman: Absolution was a bit of a mystery to me. I had no idea what the word Absolution meant in the title, but it refers to being absolved or completely forgiven for your sins. In Agent 47’s case, there’s a lot of forgiving to be done but knowing him, there will be a lot of dead people before anyone is forgiven.

Hitman Absolution

  • Excerpt: Between speed runs, marathon sessions, completionist efforts, and miscellaneous extracurricular activity, “time” is a powerfully associative element to our gaming habit. If an adventure is too short or too long we feel cheated or exploited, regardless of the content therein. There's a sweet spot though. It's not quantifiable; it's more of an abstract relationship between invested time and a sense of novelty that makes for entertainment—it's a feeling.

  • Conclusion: Hitman: Absolution features an impressive amount of abilities when it comes to removing enemies quickly and quietly. If you want to be the perfect silent assassin, this game will give you a proper chance to shine and that's where the true fun lies. That doesn't mean there's nothing for those who prefer a more aggressive approach.
  • Pros: The sheer amount of options when dealing with enemies, a lot of weapons on offer, the game is generally entertaining for both action fans and those who prefer stealth-based gameplay, great music and solid visuals;
  • Cons: AI glitches spoil the challenge and the fun, squandered potential when it comes to the story, gets repetitive after a while.

Hitman: Absolution Review: Deadly choices

blastmagazine.com
19 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Killing someone is easy. You can shoot him in the head, stab him with a knife, or push him off a ledge. But if writers didn’t think out of the box and wow audiences with creative displays of bloodshed, movies wouldn’t be so exciting. The same holds true to a video game like Hitman: Absolution that focuses on the straightforward act of killing but gives players the tools to take out their targets to their liking.

Hitman: Absolution Review

AtomicGamer
19 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Hitman: Blood Money was released more than six years ago, but I feel that it aged better than many games of its time, and this only made fans of this assassination series by IO Interactive more antsy as the developers spent years away from the franchise that made them famous. But a couple of years ago, IO announced that they were returning to familiar ground with Hitman: Absolution , the fifth game in the series.
