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.

This was not the game I was hopeing for. I got a ps2 recentely just to play hitman bloodmoney. and i will be playing my favorite missions over and over. this game just had to many fallow me paths. not that many targets to take out. the ones you did have really dident have a grate back ground story. you cant supe up your wepons in story mode.
