From Publisher Square Enix & Developer IO Interactive comes Hitman Absolution, the 5th Installment from the Hitman Series where players follow Agent 47 who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Hitman Absolution is an intense mix of serenity and obscenity, its foul-mouthed criminals and grubby henchmen adding a layer of thick grime to otherwise quaint small-town streets and warm desert sands. Agent 47 returns in this open-ended linear challenging game to hit up one final contract by his former handler Diana Burnwood who went rogue & died by your hand & the tasks are to protect a girl named Victoria, stop a crimelord named Blake Dexter who made you the Most Wanted man to date, kill his associates & stop Assassin Nuns hired by Blake who will do whatever it takes to stop 47. Your tasks are to either eliminate your contracts using 47's amazing stealth skills, go in guns blazing using 47's combat skills, or choose your enviroments to take out your contracts & make it look like an accident. Also you must avoid or kill the assassin nuns & walk away like nothing happened. Story is somewhat Phenomenal, Stealth Gameplay is tense & has become more challenging than ever also Combat is excellent. Art Design is amazing & Soundtrack can make the game tense & Sound Design is great which is another reason to play Hitman. The many challenges/options to complete your tasks are what makes the game great. Characters Design & Voice Acting is well put & Level Design is epic. Game is not perfect, game does have some flaws & issues like the A.I. use in levels, cell phone coversations, story hobbles a bit near the end & leaves some gaps but in the end its good to have Agent 47 back & we needed him. If you still love playing Hitman games like I do & love the amazing storyline then this game is for you & newcomers beware for this might not be your game. Hitman Absolution gets an 8 out of 10.
