One of two things is happening here. Either IO Interactive are trolling us, and are getting ready to properly reveal the current-gen Hitman game you're hoping for at a later date (possible, and I’ll explain why over the jump), or Absolution really does lack a lot of what made us love the series in the first place.
Click on. Details await...
Hitman: Absolution pre-order customers are getting more than the average bonus when they throw down their hard-earned cash at GameStop - they're getting Hitman: Sniper Challenge, a combination demo/downloadable game that unlocks in-game rewards for the actual title. We've played through it a few times, and come out with some thoughts...
We get our hands bloody behind bald-headed, bar-coded Agent 47 during a deep dive session with upcoming stealth-action title Hitman: Absolution...
The economy has collapsed, there’s a worldwide energy crisis and the once-great USA is in tatters. No, it’s not present day: the year is 2027, and North Korea has used its missiles to destroy South Korea and invade the States. Hmm, we could cover one eye, squint with the other and pretend we’ve never played this scenario before...
In case you missed it, we previously talked about how Homefront’s a sort-of videogame remake of Red Dawn in our earlier preview, where we focused on the first level of the single-player campaign as well as several hours of play in the multiplayer.

You might not know about THQ’s big 2010 shooter Homefront… but after this year’s E3 games show, we confidently predict that’ll change. Think Killzone’s intensity meets Half-Life’s emotive storytelling, as Dave Votypka, Kaos Studios’ General Manager explains…
Surely, it can only be a good thing when a game demo leaves you wanting more. We’re sitting in a private theater in New York, having just seen two new levels of Homefront – the game that sees you fighting in a nightmarish future world where a unified Korea has invaded and occupied the US – and what the developer has just shown us was good. Damn good. But there are so many aspects of the game yet to be revealed: features that could potentially turn this striking FPS from being ‘potentially amazing’ to just plain ‘amazing’...
