So instead of going to all of that contrivance and trouble, just have a look at these rather gorgeous first two Hitman: Absolution screens, which have just appeared on the official Hitman forums (opens in new tab), and tell me how real you think they are.
So, in-game? Pre-rendered? Somewhere in-between? Personally I'm going for "originally in-game but now heavily touched up to look even prettier". That acknowledged, I reckon we're still looking at some very nice lighting and a lot of heavy atmosphere in the game itself. And regardless of everything else, new Hitman art just keeps reminding me that new Hitman is indeed coming, and coming soon. And after waiting this long, that makes me very happy.
