Hitman Blood money or Absolution?

I would say absolution is the best game by a long shot. Technically it's far superior in controls, graphics, voices and music. However I love the mission style of Blood Money. So take your pick. They are both fantastic games.

Blood Money is much better.

Blood Money.

Absolutely Blood Money. It's a significantly more open-ended game than Absolution. I'm a big fan of the series and I will still admit that Absolution isn't as good a game. The graphics and controls are perhaps better, but at the expense of replayability. The real strength in Blood Money is that you can do the same mission several times over and find new ways each and every time.

Absolution, while fun, relies a little too much on gunplay. At times it feels much too heavily rooted in shooting people, particularly with the 'boss fights'. Granted, there's technically one in Blood Money as well, but it's still a far stronger entry in the franchise in my opinion.

If this is a choice remember that they both go on sale on Steam occasionally. Blood Money released in 2006, so can run on just about anything nowadays. That may be an important factor to consider.

Absolution actually has a story unlike other Hitman games.

Blood Money is far better as far as gameplay freedom goes. Absolution has a more cohesive story, but it also has more linear levels.
Blood Money puts everything in a level, drops you in and says, "Figure it out. GO!"
Absolution puts you in a level and says, "First, go here, then here, then here."

I like both, but given a choice one or the other, I'll say Blood Money each and every time. That's probably why IO's recent statements about the next Hitman harkens back to earlier Hitman games.

killing the crooked VP in the white house, can't get any better than that in Blood Money.

Get Absolution. It doesn't matter if Blood Money is a better game, Absolution has Absolutely the better graphics. Also, Absolution makes disguises worthless. Finally, Absolution worships the ground that Quentin Tarantino walks on including his little preference on females. Why wouldn't you want that? You know you want Absolution.

Hitman Absolution is a good game overall.

People complain because it is considerably more trigger happy friendly than older hitmans.


It is but the shooting feels so good in Absolution. If you play it like a TPS it's really good.
