logo for Hitman: Absolution

A stealth game and the fifth in the Hitman series. It has a more personal story about Agent 47, who has been betrayed and must uncover a conspiracy. 47's ultimate mission is to assassinate Diana Burnwood, his former employer and friend who provided him his missions in the previous games.

You choose how to complete each level, taking branching paths to get to a target. You use pistols, bottles, bricks, assault rifles, shotguns, or pipes, against enemies if opting for the action approach, or avoid enemies all together, not being seen, using disguises, blending in the environment, and only attacking the set target, if using the stealth approach. You have the 'Instinct' ability that lets you monitor enemies easily. There are also indirect ways to kill or distract individuals; you can use poison to spike coffee, pull switches to make a disco ball fall and break, cause a massive explosion at a gas station, pull a switch to cause scaffolding to fall down, cause fires, or set off fireworks.
