Over all it is a good game . I just hate when you start a mission you have no cool gadgets. They just toss you in a mission and most of the time the alarm would go off then you are in gun battles. If only they would of worked on the game longer could of been a Great Game. Worth a Rent are 24.99 buy at best good luck

I've played every Hitman game to date. I pretty happy to have the game finally come to the PS3/360, and was even more excited that it was actually getting such great reviews. Despite a multitude of changes in development.
Unfortunately... it's really not too great.
Lets' start with the good stuff. Contracts is AWESOME, couldn't think of a better, more original and unique way to have Multiplayer in Hitman. Although, more options would be nice. It's a bit limited.
There are some brief moments in the campaign where Absolution does Hitman right. Perfect layout, kill a target, here's a bunch of ways to go about it, so many options.
But the MAJORITY of the game is this linear path where it's just some cookie-cutter TPS that can't hold a candle to most on the market, let alone a leader like Uncharted.
What ever happened to each level being it's own self contained contract? That's what Hitman is, that's why Hitman is great. This is not Hitman.
There's this AWFUL overarcing story that is THE WORST STORY. EVER.
And, in all honesty, the TRUEST, PURIST way to actually ENJOY this game, is to play it on Easy. Because so much of the game is flawed, especially disguises, Easy is the only way to actually feel like Agent 47 is as good as he's supposed to be. Any other difficulty and the game is just miserable and intolerable. Especially with that story.
They had a good thing going with blood money with the weapon customizations and very unique and flexible levels. The story has always been custard, but this one greatly improves on the graphics and story. I think it plays a bit more like manhunt and batman arkham city then the other hitman series. It bummed me out how this turned out, I was actually going to buy this game but the missions are short, not really nice exploitable levels with alot of ways to kill your target. The whole game you spend pretty much on the run, the feeling of the game is that you are a wanted man, yes you come into the world with low radar but never the less your like, get a disguise and blend in.they add this batman/assassins creed eagle view thing that really killed it for me.
