Worth the wait

Finally, after waiting for 6 years we have yet another Hitman. To be honest it was worth the wait.Anyways to the review.

Graphics: The graphics were not the best but not bad at all, and I'm not a person who if sees one glitch in graphics he/she gives a bad review.So basically graphics pass for me.

Gameplay: The gameplay wasn't bad at all infact I thought it was amazing,anyways here's a warning, if your a Call of Duty fan DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME.First of all because the Hitman games require patience unless your a guy/girl who just doesn't care about the whole "Silent Assassin" deal.So again if you are a fan of CoD then don't play unless you don't care about getting Silent Assassin.Also it was a little dissapointing that it's not the longest game.But overall gameplay passes.

Glitches:Simple,not to many.

Conclusion:So here we are at the conclusion,so far this game is looking excellent.Well this segment of the review will not be long,because all I have to say is.....brilliant game.Oh, and once more.IF YOUR A CALL OF DUTY FAN DON'T BUY UNLESS ACTUALLY PATIENT OR JUST DON'T CARE ABOUT THE SILENT ASSASSIN RANKING.So there you have ladies and gentleman the Hitman:Absolution review.

A Welcome Return Of the Hitman

I had played all the Hitman games as they came out. They were always amazing, but a bit daunting. I have never been a hardcore gamer, and those games were tough. What I loved about Absolution, was that it kept the amazing gameplay, the many options in assisnations, but focused the levels more. Some people may not like this, and at first neither did I, but later in the game I realized how much more fun I was having with a tighter story and levels. The set pieces for the levels were amazing, with some really cool levels. Such as tracking your target in the fog, or battling an assassination squad through a cornfield.
I missed the music from the previous Hitman games, the haunting orchestral music, is just not there, and what is just does not fit the game as well. This game is about patience more then it is about reflexes, which was perfect for me. So many times I feel lost in a shooter anytime I turn the difficulty up or get on x box live.
