Gamer Euphoria staff member Stephen writes:
''It’s been six years since we last had the chance to step into Agent 47′s shoes for another bout of murder and raucous fun. In that time, governments have changed and regimes have collapsed but if there’s one thing that’s withstood the test of time, it’s Agents 47′s ability to pull off the perfect kill with complete satisfaction and precision. Absolution feels like the next step in the necessary evolutionary process for Hitman, but whether that’s a good thing or not depends on which angle you look at it from.
Absolution is a more personal story for 47 than any of the previous Hitman titles. Whereas the earlier games had a story that merely felt like it was there to give the levels a sense of purpose, Absolution has made it a much larger focus that while providing a set of interesting characters and allowing 47 to develop outside of strangling his victims, feels largely unnecessary.''
