By focusing on the moment to moment stealth while keeping the ethos of the original games, IO interactive have given the stealth genre a jolt in the arm. Including the genius Contracts mode just seems like icing on the cake. There will be detractors and those who simply won’t accept what Hitman has become. One can sympathise with those people and even agree on some level, but Hitman: Absolution is simply too well made to ignore. Agent 47 is back and he is here to stay.
