Absolution delivers!

The Hitman games have provided gamers with a unique gaming experience where you have to consider the environment around you as well as the methods you use, when killing a target as a hitman. Absolution does indeed deliver that to gamers.

The realism behind the game induces the player to feel the frustration one would feel at waiting, observing patterns and trying to find a way to kill cleanly without being seen. But this is a two sided effect, as it also provides players with the excitement of doing so, professionally as the stealthy Agent 47. The game is easier than Blood Money in my opinion, which allows the gamer some ease from that too-real feeling of gaming, which can make some gamers put down the controller and leave. It still leaves the fantastical, bad-assness of being able to kill myriad people, in different ways without being caught. That's the fun of the game.

Although usually the best scores in the game are ones where you hardly touch anything, the game encourages a completely different take on completing a level, such as raging through it, or killing targets and non-targets in more flagrant ways. Challenges allow you to go back to a level and complete that challenge, allowing you different ways to complete the level entirely, leaving you to experiment with the rest.

Absolution is indeed the longest game and for some players that'd be a turn off, although I don't know why. The campaign is all you'd really play it for, and being as long as it is, it is almost worth buying. The developers worked extremely hard in making this game last, and were insanely imaginative in how you can interact with your environment.

The best part of the game was, without doubt, the level design and all the interactions within that environment -- so much fun and so many ways to kill.
I was more dubious on giving this one a perfect 10, because of the story and minor detection flaws; it was entertaining but could use better writers.

Think Kill Bill means assassin's creed in suits maybe. You are tasked with killing set targets how this is done its up to you. There are any number of ways to do it. That is the fun that is the frustration. I should note i work, I'm grown up some I have other responsibilities I don't have time to waste on one game. This is is where things can get frustrating. This takes patience to get the best rating but that does not mean you need it. You can grab a machine gun and go to work it you want or. You can never pull a trigger at all and create some "accidents." That is the fun. The game can be finished pretty quickly and there is a pretty goo story to follow and characters that evoke emotions hate love etc. Good fun plus there is multi player. is this game epic no, is it awesome no. is it worthwhile absolutely. This is a puzzle game with purpose. It is fun, worth a rental, worth the time to play and worth the money to buy.
