Hitman: Absolution recently caused quite a stir due to a misogynistic trailer depicting a troupe of fetishistic nuns being bloodily dispatched by the titular anti-hero. As much as this leaves a bad taste in our mouth, it's hard to deny that the game itself is looking spectacular. The E3 demo we saw takes place in the game’s ninth level, with Agent 47 taking on a rather despicable greaser gang (and not a few innocent bystanders along the way). The world of Hitman is now more detailed than ever, with more ways to get the job done than ever before. You can shoot a car with a silenced pistol to set off its alarm and create a distraction, hide bodies in fridges and closets, throw objects to get people looking the wrong way... all kinds of stuff. Square’s also added some tools to make the job of being the world’s best assassin a little easier, like Instinct mode. When this is activated, you can see all the people around you, regardless of line of sight, and tell your targets from the greater masses of people. The crowd system is all it’s been hyped up to be; able to generate a mess of AI driven people of all kinds, from cops to passersby. Latex nun aside, it adds a whole new level of immersion.
