Will I probably like Hitman Absolution if I like Splinter Cell?

I can't profess to understand God's plan, Christ promised the resurrection of the dead. I just thought he had something a little different in mind.

Probably, Absolution was great.

inb4 Absolution isn't a Hitman game
inb4 the disguise system didn't work

I agree with ghost a lot about games. Don't think a common occurrence can be a sign of the apocalypse.

Absolution was indeed a great game. It's nothing like Splinter Cell but it has it's own great merits when it comes to stealth mechanics.

You will most likely enjoy it if you enjoy action stealth games.

The disguise system is flawed, and I don't see how anyone can make the claim that it isn't, When guards, cops, mercs etc become suspicious of 47 when his back is to them and he's 10-15 yards away, that is a problem,

The disguise system is arbitrary and really doesn't make much sense on some of the game's levels. In one level you are in China town. Apparently every officer knows each other, so they are immediately suspicious of you. It becomes annoying and is not very logical as officers from different precincts would be in a festival type setting like this.

Still a good game, but that was my major gripe with it.

There was nothing wrong with absolution, save some MILD freedom on a few minor levels being lost from previous entries.

It is a fantastic game, and anyone who doesn't like it is being WAY too overcritical.
