RandomMan5000 from Plus XP writes "Having waited 6 years since the last Hitman game I couldn’t wait to step back into the shoes of the man who is in my opinion the most dangerous assassin on the planet. In Hitman Absolution we join Agent 47 as he embarks on his latest mission and once again the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
Absolution starts by filling you in on the events which occurred prior to the start of the game. Agent 47 reveals that Diana, who some of you may know from the previous Hitman titles has sabotaged the Agency. This has cost the agency not only many of their agents, but also a lot of money as well as a girl that they had been holding. Due to her actions a kill order has now been issued for Diana, with orders that the captured girl must taken back. Unsurprisingly the person who has been given the contract is none other than Agent 47. This sequence is not only a great way of introducing you to the game, but it also shows you little snippits of the future gameplay."
