Diehard GameFAN: Hitman: Absolution Review

DHGF: As the first entry in the franchise in over half a decade, Hitman: Absolution is indeed a return to form and a great game in general, and while it’s one that may not be for everyone, and not without its issues, it’s well worth experiencing if you’re into what it does. The storyline, though slightly derivative and awkward for returning fans, does an excellent job of advancing the experience and giving the player a reason to care about the events, and the game is mostly exceptionally artistic in its visual and aural design. The mechanics can be a little daunting at first, but once you have spent some time with them the gameplay becomes second nature, allowing you to focus on the most interesting ways to complete your contracts using all of the tools and elements at your disposal. The game also offers a good amount of replay value, through improving scores, challenging yourself with higher difficulties, taking on Contracts made by others, or just trying to complete all of the Challenges and Achievements the game has to offer. (Hitman: Absolution, Xbox 360) -
