Moving on to the actual game. The game plot is action based. It revolves around conspiracy, friends turning foes and the ultimate quest for truth. Hitman Absolution’s story is one of the major factors which will enhance the overall game experience. The game play lives up to its Hitman DNA with “Stealth” being one of its core building blocks. Just like its predecessor installments to the Hitman game series one can accomplish the same mission in different ways. The game also offers a host of new features and killing options. The game developers at IO Interactive seem to have worked hard with their new AI (Artificial Intelligence). The new AI seems to analyze and adapt to your style of playing making the progressive levels difficult. And then the game also allows the user to go all out, shooting bullets everywhere killing everyone in Agent 47’s path and leaving no witness at all.
One of the new features is Agent 47’s instinct. The instinct is a limited game aid wherein your Agent 47 gets a sixth sense. He can now recall the exact location and track followed by guards in the surrounding area, indicate special interest points, etc. The instinct is a limited aid and one needs to use it carefully during the mission.
The overall game play is smooth with much evolved graphics. The characters are immaculately detailed right from their audio to the visual appearance. Playing Hitman Absolution in high definition is something you should not miss.
