The game doesn't have a great save system, and instead uses what feels like random checkpoints available to physically activate. You do get saves through the breaks in levels, but going back isn't really possible meaning checkpoints are sometimes a gamble. The story is halfway decent, but pretty forgettable. Outside those issues, Hitman Absolution is quite fun and gives you plenty of opportunities to play how you want. Veterans of the series may feel betrayed, but if you think of this as more of a reboot than a sequel, then it’ll feel more like a fresh take on the assassin genre.

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 represents a stellar return for Agent 47, incorporating the best elements from previous titles, while also experimenting with plenty of new ideas. Some of the additions are a little rough around the edges – the narrative stumbles over its ridiculous characters, and the checkpoint system discourages experimentation – but it's still a refreshing experience that challenges your thinking and rewards perfection.
