Command Control Escape Reviews Hitman: Absolution
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Command Control Escape has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's stealth-action game Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition. Developed by Io-Interactive and published by Square Enix for PC and consoles, Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition brings Hitmanís charismatic Agent 47 to the Mac platform for the first time.
As linear as the game is, it's crying out to be replayed multiple times. Each objective level gives you a score as you play, and typically has a dozen or so mutually exclusive ways to complete it in the form of "challenges". For stages requiring assassination, many of the challenges are to assassinate the target in a number of specific†ways, but there are also things like finding specific disguises and collectibles within each level. It seems a bit strange that the game just tells you upfront what these challenges are when you start each level, but they're just vague enough to leave you to figure out the details†in most†cases. Completing the various challenges gives you a score bonus, which is combined with various modifiers (points added for objectives completed, points deducted for killing people that are not targets or for being spotted, and so on) to give you your final score for the level (a particularly nice feature, in the Steam edition at least, is that it will show the scores of your friends and world averages at the start of each level).Read the full review at the link below.
