Hitman: Absolution Review [GameRevolution]

GR: "Never mind that you haven't seen or heard from Agent 47 in over five years.

"He is a silent assassin, after all. You won't find the International Contract Agency's top killer getting involved with our founding fathers or an ancient prophecy. Instead, IO Interactive looks to 47's up-close-and-personal side to frame their absurd mission parameters and environments. With a new engine in the form of Glacier 2, franchise developers IO Interactive hope to deliver an experience more interactive, free-flowing, and reactive than ever.

"That kind of open-approach design abounds in Hitman: Absolution, although it doesn't seem like it at first. Despite getting his hands dirty on more than a few occasions, 47 has to make this one count or see the first of Square Enix's high-profile Western-developed releases bungle its contract. Can Absolution deliver the goods?" (Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/5

Glad to hear that the formula hasn't gotten stale yet.

It's been a while since the last one. I was worried it had gotten dusty.

I guess you could say this was a hit, man.

I'll be here all weekend, folks. Tip your waitress.

Man I love this series but the new game is so weird. It feels like batman and assasins creed with a hitman shell. The game is good but it is so differant than the previous games.
