Summary: I own every Hitman game and I am a big fan of the series. Hitman Absolution really disappointed me. Absolution isn't a bad game at all, but it lacks many things to be a great Hitman game. To me, the game focuses too much on the story (which is loosely based off the Hitman movie, which I didn't like at all) and not enough about being an actual hitman. You'll go through several levels without killing a high profile target.
Summary: This is an awkward game...some was good and some was bad. The story was hard to follow. The gameplay isn't anything great and getting detected by cops or bodyguards is too easy and will Enrage you. This ABSOLUTELY needed more though.
