Fairly menacingly, our “back of the box” quote for Hitman Absolution was: “Hitman Absolution is the best game in the Splinter Cell franchise since Double Agent.”

Do we have the evidence to back this up? We sure do. Michael returns with this lengthy look at Hitman Absolution, dispelling marketing myths and telling it like it is. Although poking a little deeply into the game mechanics, and bringing them to rights on a couple of aspects, we really enjoyed Hitman Absolution – but not for what IO seemed to be selling it for, so much as what we discovered it was about.

And what’s that? Well, take a look.
