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.

Despite being a strictly single-player experience, Absolution packs more replay value into its two game modes than most games would do with five. It has its fair share of deficiencies—a goofy narrative, okay gunplay, a few bugs here and there—but overall, Absolution is a game that demands you explore its nuances over and over again. Just be sure to stay quiet when you do so.

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.
