X360A Review: Hitman: Absolution
Written Sunday, November 18, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
It's been six years since we last saw Agent 47 in Hitman: Blood Money, since developer IO Interactive decided to turn its focus onto the morally dubious crime duo of Kane & Lynch for the last few years instead. Fans have been crying out for the return of the original assassin, and finally the Danish studio has listened.
The chrome-domed killer is back in full force for Hitman: Absolution then, rocking his piano wire, silver-ballers, poison-administering syringes and other tools for executing covert murderous acts. Is 47 still as sharp, cold and calculating as always, or has he lost his edge? Is it a triumphant comeback for Hitman, or should the series have stayed in retirement?
