since the last thread ended in a trainwreck i’d thought i’d give this topic another chance.
this is the thread where you post any opinions that are unpopular within the hitman community. (ex. “Absolution is the best hitman game”)
i will start:
ABSOLUTION DID NOTHING WRONG
just kidding of course. absolution did many things wrong such as the disguise system and the story, but it did a lot of things right too.
it made sense that 47 hated the way the doctors treated him in romania. before codename 47 he beat the crap out of the doctors who put syringes on him, and later in codename 47 we actually kill one of them. so i can see 47 having compassion for victoria, because she was going through what 47 was going through. it was just badly executed because 47 looked like a wimp when he pointed the gun at victoria, and made that stupid face.
everyone says absolution is not a hitman game, and hated the linear maps in absolution. but not every map is a linear “go from A to B” map. maps like streets of hope, vixen club and king of chinatown are where absolution is a true hitman game, because you actually have targets to kill and a sandbox map, like traditional hitman games.
the interpretation of dom osmond’s death in the legacy trailer was so badass. my favorite scene in the trailer.
the gunplay is the best in the hitman series. no argument is needed i think.
i also love how in this game, 47 actually wants to kill people, and he is killing his own targets and working on his own, where before, 47 would just kill whoever paid him to kill, and did not want to unless he was rewarded. for example, nobody asked 47 to eliminate limpdick lenny’s gang; he did it by his own free will. hell, in absolution it’s 47 who gives the briefings of the missions, not diana (or agent smith.)
also when he shoots diana, it was the first time he actually questioned what he was doing, where before, he would not ask any questions about his job and do what he was paid to do.
