“After several years of increasingly totalitarian games where you're very much following a pre-determined path, it's nice to have a game that doesn't just encourage improvisation; it requires it.”
9/10 – IGN

“Hitman: Absolution is a triumph, top to bottom. Fans of the series can look forward to the best entry yet, without question.”
5/5 – G4TV

“Offers refinement of a beloved series in many ways, boasting more visual pizzazz than most anything releasing this year and a well-paced story which features a good share of weirdness without attempting a scope beyond its means.”
8.5/10 – Destructoid

-Quick Review-
Hitman: Absolution is a third person shooter where you can choose different ways of completing missions, be it through stealth (which yields the highest score), or fighting through guns-a-blaz'n. Hitman: Absolution was developed by Square Enix and released in 2012.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: You play as Agent 47, a trained Hitman very capable in weapons, stealth, social engineering... really, he's basically the the assassin-protege.
Full Disclaimer: I have only watched one Hitman movie, and all I remember is some girl being topless and my best friend saying "Well, she sure is comfortable, isn't she?" My point is that I don't know the background of this character outside of what was presented in this game.
While streaming over twitch a friend did explain one detail to me "He uses coins to distract people in other games". So that's all I have got going for me for understanding his strange obsession with coins. I thought maybe he was just really into collecting USA State Coins, I can respect that, I used to collect those, there're around here somewhere.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=691173456

Gameplay:You start each game with the opportunity to go through each level in stealth and without killing anyone other then your mission-target. But that can change depending on your play style or if you get spotted. "True masters will go through the levels without killing and without being seen", and I want to be a true Ninja! That being said, I've seen several people are put off by this feature and the scoring system that goes with it. (I can't blame them, I feel bad when I've got negative scores because I shot someone who knew too much)
As is typical for stealth games, the rules are a bit more complicated then simply a 3rd person shooter where you run and gun. There's cover, hiding spots, patrols, good 'ol air ducts, weapons etc.... which are all available and can be utilized in different circumstances that will arise.
If I went into detail for the different weapons, environmental weapons/objects/distractions, my review would get too long(er then it already is. Yeah, sorry about that). Suffice to say; there are many weapons and environmental objects which you can use to accomplish your goals, its up to you on how you use them.
The way you can spot these environmental objects, get tips, or spot other points of interest, you can enter into a special game mode known as "Instinct". Instinct can be used to help you camouflage in, spot weapons, spot mission critical targets, or enter into a special fire mode which stops time and lets Agent 47 fire off shots at all visible enemies.
Beware using up your instinct though! Getting it back is a bit tricky; you get back Instinct by completing objectives, preforming silent take downs, or finding ways around enemies.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=691171972

Achievements: Half of the achievements are pretty straightforward and were unlocked by the time I finished playing through the game my first time on normal difficulty. There are the standard achievements, however it's hard to tell right now how hard the hardest ones are which are the typical: "get all the in-game challenges", and "Beat the game on the hardest difficulty" since I haven't started working on them yet. Word has it they're very difficult.

Price: Hitman: Absolution is priced at $19.99. For those that know me, know I like to get close to an hour of game time for every dollar. That's a personal quirk and it's more important that you enjoy the time playing the game; but based on replay value I think this game is pretty fairly and standardly priced.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=691174405

Conclusion: All in all, by the time I'm writing this review, I'm not finished playing the game; there's still a plethora of achievements and challenges for me to work on. I think the important details to remember about the game, is that it capitalizes on stealth, and when stealth fails the game turns into a 3rd person shooter.
I recommend the game to anyone who's patient and enjoys strategy games and/or stealth games.

270 hours and I am not bored with it. It's goal-oriented, but far from linear. Much like the Deus Ex series, there are multiple ways to achieve your goals -- stealth, diversionary tactics, rambo kill-em-all, and much in between.

You get a score for each level. (Killing innocent civilians hits you with a penalty, for example.) Higher scores unlock better equipment.

CRITICISM: There was a large "challenge-making" community, using the same maps, but changing goals around completely. That was a GREAT thing for replayability. It was GREAT. But, after Square Enix bought the franchise, that part of the game broke. There is a fix, but it is a pain to do, and I have not yet gotten it to work.

FUTURE: Square Enix breaking a game THAT IS STILL FOR SALE is a customer-unfriendly move. They are trying to push people to the next edition of Hitman (which I think is subscription-based, or some other odious setup). I AM HAPPY WITH HITMAN: ABSOLUTION, and I paid money for it. Square Enix broke it.

I WILL NOT pay a nickel for Square Enix's next iteration of this franchise, despite it being (in past iterations) absolutely awesome.

I've got a lot of experience with Hitman, I bought the first two when they were new, and Contracts and Blood Money after they had aged quite a lot and had come down to bargain bin price. I've tried repeatedly to like Absolution. I download it and play a few missions a couple times a year trying to get that feeling to shake off eventually. It's just not a good game, nothing here grips me like the others.

Firstly, it looks absolutely terrible. At first glance it's passable, but the more you look at it the more the hideous level design catches your eye. The further you go into the game the worse the level design gets. It's not just about corridor style layout, the actual visual design is just brutally 4th wall breaking. Every set piece looks like one of those one sided spaghetti western props. You can't unsee it after you notice how static and fake all the set pieces look. Even the original game didn't do world building this badly and it came out over 15 years ago. Even if this wasn't a severe, glaring issue, the level design itself is 0/10 stuff. I could have planned out better mission layouts on a napkin during a ♥♥♥♥ at the Wafflehouse restroom, there's no excuse for how bad the world is in this game from every angle.

Secondly, the melee combat is a nightmare. If an alerted NPC walks near you it just auto initiates these long QTE sections. No matter what's going on around you, you have to go through with these drawn out QTE battles. Spam Q until E pops, tap E, spam Q until W comes up, tap W and they're knocked out. That's the melee combat in this game. You're absolutely locked into it. There's no backing out of a fight, you can't run, you can't dodge out. And due to the actor density, generally you get zerged down by trigger happy thugs and die as soon as the melee fight starts. This is the worst combat I've ever seen in a game, let alone in a Hitman game. This system alone I would give this game a 0/10 even if everything else was perfect. It limits your playstyle severely, so much so that you can't initiate a fight at all with a large group of enemies since getting caught a melee fight with more than two enemies in the area is instant death. It makes you feel so frail and useless.

If you liked games like Max Payne 3 you will like this one too. Poor level design makes this a bad Hitman game but still OK 3rd person action game. If you can get this game for a few bucks / euros get it otherwise there are better options available.

Avoid all the DLCs since this is not a war shooter. :)

A cool game, i have no issues with the games, graphics, optimisation, gameplay. But the story...
for one, if youre going to do Diana a favour and save the girl why would he even kill her in the first place lol
second, since when does agent 47 get rekt by anyone? nevermind some southern cowboy who lacks all the wit and strength and brains to defeat a legendary hitman..?.. stupid. actually most of the villains are pretty stupid, why invade a Church looking for a girl and then kill everyone in there who knows where she is. I still recommend this game.

Hitman: Absolution is a polarizing game to some fans of the series. I personally enjoyed it even if I was slightly upset by the loss of open levels and the introduction of level segments. The core stealth action that made the Hitman games so great is still present. It is still challenging and fun to complete it on the Silent Assassin rating and that's the way it's meant to be played, in my opinion.

"I'm sorry." -Hitman
This game boasts a big storyline compared to its older brothers, but sadly it's just a mess of uninteresting charachers, boring dialogue and mazey maps. The constant hide-and-seek felt tedious and interesting scenarios with total freedom are few and far between. After the first, most basic mission I kept wishing for more but instead the story arc took me to a dumb lone vengenace because our stone-cold anti hero's f e e l s. Overrall, the game focuses mainly on looking good which doesn't get the game far in my book.
On a possibly positive note (but something that left me with mixed reaction) is the fact that the mission rating system doesn't matter at all. It gives room for wacky youtuber-style of walkthroughs but at the same time undermines the idea that you're playing as the ultimate professional. I'd recommend the game for people who like movielike games or make gameplay videos for a job. Otherwise, and especially if you're looking for a polished hitman game, this game doesn't live up to its title.

Absolution is a perfect example of what a Hitman game should not be. It feels like it is giving you way too much help with the overpowered instinct ability. It also is very linear and I don't like it overall. It doesn't feel like Hitman.

Many critics of Hitman: Absolution made the mistake to equate the whole series with Blood Money - maybe because this was the only game they have played.

People that know the whole series (including me) are aware of the fact that the very first game Codename 47 was also very mutch about action (think of the end) and even the second part had some hardcore areas that could only be solved by shooting your way through because of the aggressive AI. Contracts was a very dark game and rediscovered some aspects of the story...

Every Hitman game is unique in his own way, so where does this strange idea come from that every part has to be like Blood Money?? Yes, it was with no doubt a great game with a reliable disguise system and fantastic missions - but Absolution also has it's very own strengths: great sound and graphics, smooth and polished gameplay, cool cinematics and a lot of details in most levels. Some areas (like Hope and Chinatown) are bigger than others and this is completely fine. In my second playthrough, I discovered eastereggs, new rooms and new ways of eliminating the target. Yes, story and points system are strange and not every level offers a lot of stealth varieties but the game just didn't deserve all the extreme and frivolous reviews of some "fans".

Absolution is fine the way it is - because it's an individual part of the series that still upholds most of the traditions of Hitman. I rather like to play some new aspects than the same style and content again and again.

If all the haters wouldn't be so ignorant, we surely wouldn't have this reboot without name that is coming out today - and while it might be a great game again, it clearly shows the anxiety of the developers of a new ♥♥♥♥♥torm and the lower production value. It's maybe too much based on the general wish that every level has to be a large sandbox environment (that wasn't even the case in Blood Money!). And while I'm comletely fine with this new decision, I hope that
the current uncultivated zeitgeist doesn't rise again and destroys the creative work and motivation of the developers with flames, arrogance and disrespect.

Soooo...I already played this game, entirely. Just to be sure I wasn't missing something. I did this on PS3.Then a friend of mine decided: "hey you should stream this game. Here's a key for the pc version". And I never streamed it. Why? It sucks on so many levels, but especially in two areas.

-First:
In terms of mechanics, the game is not well designed at all. And I'm not talking about the linearity of the level-design, though that is a big step back compared to the perfect Blood Money (perfect on that point at least). No, the main idea is to resolve an incoherence of the series (the fact that when dressed as a cop, no cop will tell that you look suspicious) by creating this 47 "sense". It is a bad bad bad decision. In theory, well balanced and polished, this would be an ok solution to a "non"-problem. But in execution, this gauge means that you can't be dressed as the type of character that is the most seen in the level, because you'll be unmasked in seconds by these guys, except if you use that sense gauge that emptied itself way too quickly. In lower difficulty settings it can work okay, but when in pro mode, some missions are just stupidly difficult to perform a "silent assassin" rank. Except if you play the game like a Conviction ripoff. That means that, in a HITMAN game, you spend 80% of your time crouching behind counters, taking down people that are not relevant to your objectives...when you should be proudly crossing entire rooms just walking, dressed as a clown, a priest or a bodyguard. The essence of Hitman is to be hidden in plain sight, and that mechanic f-ed it up.
The worst thing is: it is not even a good Conviction ripoff. The game doesn't know how to balance this modern predator stealth kind of gameplay, that we all played from Arkham Asylum to Human Revolution with the Hitman type of infiltration. And that gives us a level-design and NPC placement that satisfes no ends.

-Second:
...and foremost should I say, Absolution is incredibly vulgar and idiotic. And I know, being a fan of this series since the second one, that there is some poor taste jokes in previous episodes. But overall, I think the tone of it all, the focus on the themes rather than the characters, and the fact that the story never really was a focus of the game, merely a way to introduce nice game-design ideas (that be cool to make a hit on a classy boat! let's find some story about drug dealers on the Mississippi river!) gave opportunities to take it as a juvenile way to contextualise the gameplay, and it kept intact the elegant nature of the main character. Absolution can't stop putting "story" in the game. The cutscenes are longer, the game is more focused on that, rather than giving the player a good challenge, and by god why is there so much bad language in this game, and why all the childish sex elements? The Saints are the farther the series as ever been from good taste or even a bit of maturity. That doesn't make the game cool, or mature. It just looks like either an idiot who wants to tell a story with edgy characters, or a kid who wants to look like a bad*ss. Plus, I swear, the story makes no sense, and from beginning to end, you can pinpoint a major incoherence in each cutscene.


TL;DR: The game is poorly game-designed and doesn't know if it wants to be a predator-stealth game, like the Arkham series or Conviction (that were previously released) of if it wants to kinda stick to the Hitman formula. It satisfies non of these two game-designs and tries to resolve an incoherence by creating even more incohenrences. Plus the game talks to you like if you were a complete idiot and use bad language in place of good writting to tell a poorly put together story.

AVOID. Play Contracts, Blood Money or the 2016's Hitman for the real deal. This one is just pretty looking and insults your intelligence.

You just can't beat Blood Money. Falls short of expectations (locations, missions, story, predicatable ending, CHECKPOINTS!)

Hitman absolution is one of those games that are just so good to me

i don't know if it's the nostalgia of watching my dad play or if i just love bold guys.

Anyway,

Pros:
  • This game came out in november 2012 and the graphics are actually very good even at this time
  • The story
  • Agent 47 and how badass he looks
  • Pretty challenging
  • The soundtrack fits
  • Controls feels good even on a keyboard
  • Diversity of levels
  • The fact that you can choose between infiltration and killing everyone.
  • The score system in each levels
  • You'll want to play it again just to have a higher score on some maps
Cons:
  • A bit frustrating at times
  • The AI are... not really smart
  • Sometimes infiltration is just too hard so you'll end up shooting your way through the level
  • You can't buy weapons to play with in story mode, which is pretty disapointing.
Overall i'd give it an 8,5/10 Definitly go check it out, even if you've never played a hitman game before !

I love the fact that every disguise this guy steals looks like it's taylor made.
One size fits all!

This is the only Hitman game I've played, so I can't judge it off the other games. That being said, I absolutely love this game. Sure it has some flaws, but I feel like the atmosphere this game creates makes up for everything. I feel like a damn hitman! I've put 42 hours into this game, playing it first on normal and then purist, Hitman's hardest difficulty. Purist has no hud or mission markers at all, forcing you to listen to conversations and really figure it out on your own. I liked this game on normal, but absolutely love it on purist. The only sad thing is no achievement for beating the game on purist, you do however get immense amounts of self accomplishment.

Anyways, Solid 11/10 in my books.
