Really the title should tell you all you need to know. If you're a die hard fan of Hitman games read no further. If you're new to the series, have you been hiding under a rock? Just kidding, but seriously.
Gameplay - Amazing! The mechanics feel fairly fleshed out and the amount of things to be done on a given level is insane. Not everyone is a completionist and to be fair, I rarely am either, but in this game I go for 100%. I feel there is decent incentive to complete it and that's always a plus. The campaign is super entertaining and to give you a rough idea I spent the first 10 hours playing this game in the first three single player levels it was that good. The addition of contracts (which I have yet to play as it contains spoilers) should add hours and hours of entertainment.
Graphics - not exactly the BEST you'll ever find but leaps and bounds above blood money, obviously, as it is 6 years later. I'm not huge into graphics as I'd rather get great gameplay but they at least have to be decent and these exceed decent.
Sound - again, I'm more for gameplay, but there are no issues that I've heard through my turtle beach headset even.
Final Verdict - If you are a fan of the hitman series, buy it. Don't argue, just buy it. I still have Blood money because of the replay value I saw in that and Absolution has about 100 times the replay value of that one. If you aren't sure about your desire to unlock everything and find every way to kill people as well as challenge yourself to be the ultimate assassin do yourself a favor and at the very least rent this game.
