Hitman is easily one of my favorite game series. I was disappointed when they chose to replace David Bateson (original voice of 47 since 2000), but late in August, they announced that he is back! :applause:

I had the chance to play the first level, and I had a blast. The joystiq video is missing the cutscene immediately after 47 leaves the mansion though.

Dunno, I don't really see anything that makes me want this game. I may Redbox it just to check it out though.

It definitely helps to have played the previous games. Blood Money is the easiest to get into, if you can get past the awful tutorial level. There's nothing else out there that plays similar to the Hitman games (neither Splinter Cell nor Assassin's Creed come close).

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

This drops tomorrow. Anyone going to pick it up? I really want to get this but I think i'm going to wait a bit. I'm weak though when it comes to games so I may pick it up tomorrow.

I had a preorder but I am not going to pick it up. I am hearing too many things about the game being fairly generic.

I guess the great scores aren't doing it for ya, eh?

I give a shit about review scores, we live in an age where virtually any AAA title automatically gets an 9.0 no matter if its broken or not.

There are only 2 "reviewers" that I trust and neither of them give scores.

Hitman has never been a AAA franchise, so it was never automatically entitled to high scores.

I picked up the game on two platforms, and it's good. There are certain things that have changed, some for the better, others for the worse, but overall Absolution is still very much a Hitman game. I'm still working my way through the story, but I am looking forward to checking out Contracts mode, and I expect that it will add a lot more playability to the game.

Well, like I said, i'm weak when it comes to games. I just came back from purchasing this. I also got Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, which is a damn good, fun game..and only $40. Going to play Hitman later. Contracts mode is a great idea and will add some replay value.

I was at Gamestop today trading a game in and the girl behind the counter was trying to talk me into picking this and she said today was the last day to get the bonus dowload code for the three free Hitman games. Does anybody on here know what she was talking about?

p.s.
This was for the 360 version.

Acutally I think it is a code for all three Hitman games on PC. It says:

This code will unlock the Classic Hitman Trilogy on PC.



Then you go to gamestop.com/redeem and put in the code.

ajh2298, if you would like the code you can have it. Just let me know and i'll pm it to you. I already have the games on PS2.

Yeah that would've been cool for it to be on the 360. I already have the games on ps2 and my pc sucks so it's no good for me.


If anyone else wants the code, just let me know.

I'm liking the game as well. Finished about 4 missions so far. it feels good to play a new Hitman game. I need to buy Blood Money one day.

Warning guys, I heard about this over on other forums and it's finally happened to me. I'm almost more than half way through the game and had it freeze it on me on one mission. Restarted my system and it said the save was corrupted and I will have to restart all over again.....

So back up your saves! God I could almost break my controller right now over this, I spent at least 7-8 hours so far in game and now it's all gone.

Oh Square will you ever learn? Sending "hits" on Facebook may have been the wrong way to promote your game.

Had the same thing happen to me on the same level. Luckily I backed up my save a level beforehand. Still annoying as hell though.
