Hitman is a great series that is less about stealth and hiding in the shadows than it is about creativity and learning to hide in plain sight. If someone can look like they belong somewhere, less people will question whether they do. The team at IO Interactive puts a lot of hard work into their creations, but nothing has quite matched their masterpiece known asHitman 2: Silent Assassin, until now.
Hitman: Absolution tells a great story that is a new beginning for the series. The first mission sees you killing off the series protagonist’s long-time handler Diana Burnwood to prove this point. She has been Agent 47’s handler since the first game and with her dying breathe has set up the plot that will carry through the next two installments of the franchise.
