Hitman Absolution Review: ‘Brilliant Mission Design, Extremely Motivating Game Mechanics’

Positive score.

Hitman Absolution is shaping up to be a fantastic game. It’s got something to do with Square Enix as well considering they have been really supportive of their western developers, granting a good budget and encouraging them to create the best game they can.

We’ve seen it with Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and other games, and based on this first review for Hitman Absolution, it looks like they will continue their streak.

The first review courtesy of Play 3 magazine says that it ” brilliant mission design, extremely motivating game mechanics.”

There were some cons as well like no big story surprises, checkpoint system. That’s fine considering it’s a Hitman game and it’s all about assassinations and completing your mission with efficiency.

It has also been revealed that the campaign is 15 hours long and such games usually depends on your playstyle. So the first review is positive giving it a good 88/100 score, and now it’s up to other games media to say what they thought of the game.

    I don’t believe you can legitimately review something without trying it first.

      He’s posting someone else’s review, not his own. :/

    Pc gamer (a proper mag) gave it a terrible rating saying it betrayed everything that made hitman great.

      And this was claimed to be completely false by the way.

      Read the comments below. Many people who have played and reviewed the game have confirmed this and the allegations of ‘betrayal’ to be completely untrue. We will all see upon release, but personally, judging from the interviews and demos i’ve seen by the developers, I’d imagine that the review in PC Gamer has completely dropped the ball. As I said though, we will see.
