Hitman: Absolution - 'This is living, breathing AI'

CVG: Six years after committing a complex series of global assassinations - and offing a church full of mourners at his own funeral - Agent 47 is back.

With slicker stealth and far more agile, brutal melee attacks, the sociopathic slaphead is deadlier than ever. We caught up with IO Interactive's Christian Elverdam, gameplay director on Absolution, and talked evolution.

I really hope they are not trying to make a SC:Conviction clone. Cover can be useful but if they add in automated take down attacks I will be really upset.

Dev's seem to keep changing the formula that made them so renowned in previous games and it drives me crazy. I just don't understand. Splinter Cell Conviction was such a slap in the face for the fans of Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory. Resident Evil RC is now shaping up to be a run and gun, MW has a billion fricking perks and feels like your playing a slot machine.

I want Rainbow 6 Black Arrow/Vegas back. I want Spy vs. Mercs back. I want to play Resident Evil with 2 bullets that I guard with my life. Please Hitman, stay true to your roots. Please.

"Conviction was such a slap in the face for fans of Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory."

I disagree with that statement. Chaos Theory is one of my favorite games, but I found Conviction's style to be a great breath of fresh air. While the emphasis on gunplay was overly abundant in Conviction, the interrogation scenes, the myriad of ways to pounce on your enemies, fast pace of the stealth gameplay overall helped drive Conviction to be a better game than Double Agent was upon release.

If MGSIV and Conviction had stayed the course of their predecessors, I would have been terribly dissappointed with them. Reason I mentioned MGSIV: the new suit, mrk. 3 buddy, and level design felt next-gen to MGS3 imo.

It looks like SCC with a Hitman mod.

Good read!!! Have this one on my preorder list on Amazon. I always like Hitman and I like how open the levels are in the previous games.

I haven't seen a decent improvement in game AI in more than a decade.

I have, however, heard a lot of PR hyperbole.

I'll believe it when I see it.
