Review: Hitman: Absolution (New Gamer Nation)

The Hitman series has been a part of our gaming lives for almost thirteen years. Since his humble beginnings in the year 2000, our unconventional hero, Agent 47, has been assassinating his way into our hearts.

Hitman is, and has been, a remarkable series developed by some of the best. Some are better than others, but every Hitman is challenging and fun.

Sure, there have been some stumbles and fumbles, but always in pursuit of the perfect Hitman game. The most recent trilogy is a masterclass in level design.
