Bad game
22 October 2014 | by MrTinyBillSee all my reviews

Worst of the Hit-man series.

The game is made to look good with pretty graphics and this is emphasized the first time you walk through the gates of Chinatown when some fire jumps out of a frying pan. The characters and dialogue are too unbelievably edgy and adult themed, while the gameplay is boring and repetitive. Most missions consist of you trying to sneak from point A to point B.

If you are a fan of the Hit-man series, you will hate this game as it does not resemble any of the other games. The engine has been totally reworked to the point where it feels like a different game entirely.

If you are not a fan of the Hit-man series, you may enjoy Absolution, but you will soon find there is no replay value and the game is just a drag from start to finish.

Buy any other Hit-man game.
