About Hitman Absolution

Hitman Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date.

A fun approach to the assassin genre that gives players plenty of options to progress through levels, dodge the police, and eliminate targets.

We like

  • Multiple gameplay approaches
  • Contracts mode adds addictive community competition
