Age Rating: ESRB Mature | PEGI 18

After the majestic Blood Money, Absolution was nothing less than a colossal disappointment, and a betrayal of all that once made the Hitman series great. After that game's huge open levels and freeform assassination, Absolution's boxy environments, limited freedom, and rubbish disguise system felt like piano wire to the throat. It's still a passable stealth game - if you need another of those - but if you haven't yet sampled Agent 47's very killy ouevre, you know which game you should pick up instead.

A passable stealth game, but one that betrays almost everything that, until now, has made Hitman great.
