IGN-Hitman Absolution Review

IGN:For a game built upon the concept of slipping by unnoticed, Hitman: Absolution is certainly doing the opposite. It’s standing conspicuously amongst today’s fad-driven modern shooters and me-too multiplayer hopefuls, middle fingers extended. A slow-paced, single-player focused sneak ’em up, Absolution looms in stark opposition to many of the most pervading trends in gaming today. It cares not for the overly delicate, their minds rendered dull and flabby after years of being prodded through corridors blasting anything that breathes. Absolution delights in letting players skulk through it expending few bullets at all. It’s a game that wants to let you think for yourself.

Quite a few mixed reviews. Sounds like its a game that will need to be judged by the players themselves rather than relying on reviews.

Agreed. But I decided to forgo hitman for far cry 3. Hopefully I made the right choice.

I want to pass every mission without any gun battles ! A TRUE Hitman style

Hydrolex2188d ago (Edited 2188d ago )

those graphics are not so good. AKA new consoles better come out

Happy I'm playing it on my high end PC :-)

SolidStoner2188d ago

The game, to me, looks fantastic. Looking forward to stepping back into the shoes of Agent 47.

Well I have been playing it a couple of days now and you will not be dissapointed the graphics and gameplay are spot on and Iam liking the story but it's so hard not to go in all guns and blazing because it's so much fun to wipe everyone out but you lose points but I will give it a 9/10

sGIBMBR2188d ago

Would you say it's more than a 1 play through game?

seanpitt232188d ago

Yes deffo there's so many ways to do it and so many things to do I mean the way I have gone about it it's less stealth more full on but the next play through will be more stealth

sGIBMBR2187d ago

Thanks for the info :) I'll be deffo picking it up in the morning! I think I was already decided even if it was a 1 play through game anyway, just glad to hear it's even more value for money!
