The story is very linear and while you do have some space to explore it is very limited. Disguises don't keep you from being discovered by those with the same uniform and if you want to hide from them while walking, you need to use your instinct which slowly recovers when you knock out or kill people. The multi-kill function seems pointless cause I only used it during the tutorial and if used incorrectly, it just alerts a lot of guards.

Easiest of all in the series. Every level (chapter / episode) is well explained and straight forward like any other linear game. Recommended for casual gamers who wants to get a taste of HITMAN series or wants some good stealth experience.

While still very much a traditional stealth game, Hitman: Absolution has changed the series for the best in offering cinematic quality combat. It has a stronger focus on telling a coherent story while keeping a slow methodical pace. With a terrific single player campaign and a compelling online multiplayer component, it’s safe to say that whether or not you were a fan of the series before, you will be now. Even with its imperfections, Hitman: Absolution is a magnificent achievement that goes well beyond expectations and will lead future stealth action titles into a better tomorrow.

Hitman: Absolution is a game that going to require you to forgive it at times. It’s a shame that for a franchise that’s been gone so long, it’s return is marred with problems. There really are some beautiful in-game cinematic moments in Absolution, coupled with some of the most ambitious stealth/puzzle gameplay that we’ve ever seen. If you have a high tolerance for bugs and can laugh off the stupid AI and other problems, you’ll likley enjoy Absolution immensely. If you’re looking for perfection, you won’t find it here.

Hitman Absolution offers refinement of a beloved series in many ways, boasting more visual pizzazz than most anything releasing this year and a well-paced story which features a good share of weirdness without attempting a scope beyond its means. While some simplifications could irk fans who may complain that the game has been watered down, the range of difficulty options should provide ample satisfaction for players who seek a classic Hitman experience without totally alienating those trying its unique blend of stealth and exploration for the first time.
