The trilogy.

Absolution has a generic mash up up stealth elements while the HD trilogy has its own formula and identity, so to speak. I'm not bashing absolution it's a decent game, but it isn't anything special. Plus I highly recommend waiting until the price is lowered as well if you really want to play it.

The HD trilogy is longer and cheaper too, the better deal IMO.

Absolution has updated gameplay and I think bigger in scope but the HD collection should be good aswell 40 targets

i am tempted to go for the trilogy, but i am afraid that it will be filled with sloppy ports.... like most other "hd collections"

i highly doubt that the games in the collection are full remasterings.

Go for the HD Collection first. I haven't played Absolution yet, but I am holding off on it and playing the collection first.

Hitman: Absolution is a good game and it's my second favourite in the series behind Blood Money, but I think you would be better off with trilogy, unless you're a graphics whore, then you won't enjoy it.

Trilogy, Absolution was a disgrace to the series. When they introduce a loli schoolgirl who kill over 20 SWAT trained soldiers, you know the series jumped the shark.
