When I read Stephen's written preview of Hitman: Absolution, many of my fears about the game were assuaged.
It certainly sounds a lot like Blood Money, which is one of my favourite games. And now, thanks to this B-roll that was given to press at the preview, we can all see that it really seems to play like Blood Money as well.
I'm certainly not getting the sense that the game is going to be some action-fest, or that they've dropped any of the strategy-riffic open-endedness from it. Which is good news, indeed.
