I certainly hope this video is not "serious" otherwise I had a good time with it. Specially with the part "Hiding 15 bodies in the bathroom" LOL

All the tips is kinda obvious to any stealth game fan. However I will give it a 9 out of 10 for the hilarious tone.

why do people want 10 on games they like, and 0 on games they dont like?

in the end, its just an opinion from a reviewer.

if you are so insucure about your self that you need confirmation that everyone likes what you like, you need help.

Hitman: Absolution is seriously underrated. This is one of the best games I've ever played. Don't get me wrong, I was actually expecting a sequel to Blood Money and was a little disappointed when I first started playing; the gameplay and the story really deviated from the usual nature of the series. But as the game progressed, WOW! Once you get the hang of the new gameplay system it feels like Hitman again. The action in this game was exaggerated. There are shootouts and explosions but not that much, actually just enough that the game never gets stale. It's not a complete stealth game and it's not a traditional Hitman game and I hope IO returns Hitman back to it's roots with the next game, but you've gotta play this! The level where you fight the nuns, or The Saints was BAD @$$! As for the stealth aspect, now NPC's will recognize you when your wearing the same uniform as them, which I found to be more realistic, but you can still get by as long as you keep your distance or trigger the "blend in" feature, although it drains your Instinct. The Instinct itself basically replaces the old interactive map. It displays objectives, enemies, items and points of interest. The shooting has been refined and the freeze aim was a long needed feature for an assassin game like this. The story is very good, too, and the visual style looked really good, especially the bright blotches people are talking about. It's just a really good game. I think most people who didn't like it just haven't gotten past the first level. It gets really good as you progress.

Hate the cover system in this game. You creep up on a corner and it just sends you around it. They should stop you at the corner and have you hold a button to transfer around.

gamefreak215jd this is a must have for stealth game fan's,play on purist and this game is brutal one mistake and that's it.The story is also good and contract's mode is amazing.I have played all Hitman games and this is my favorite,there is alot of way's to execute targets so replay value is high and contract's mode is endless because people come up with conract's all the time not to mention you creating contract's.IO has created an amazing game even thogh some people say the graphics are rough maybe on the 360 but on thr PS it looks awesome.So don't think about it and buy this game you wont be sorry .

The problem with gamespot (and really any rating out there) is that just one person assigns a number to a game. That is not how the "appeal distribution" is! They should give an score for each (game, demographic) pair. And they should average over several opinions...

 HMBM they recognised you wearing the same outfit, This freeze aim is for the Slow ones with a very hydrated Skull cavity.

 

Too much candy was put in this for the kiddys.

 @crunchb3rry i guess I prefer how it is in a game like this as long as stealth is a big part of your playstile. it's not like you have to go all the way to the edge before you can aim at all like a lot of games.  moving around cover as fast as possible seems to be more helpful, but I wouldn't say an added button press would hinder me either

And from 2:35 to 2:43,Thats a lot like trying to scare a bunch of kids with a dead roach.

@crystalredearth   the AI can be incredibly cheap or stupid which can get you caught or allow you to be really sloppy.  Even if they fixed that on the other hand instinct gives you a bit too much help
