Hitman: Absolution’s ‘Cinema Trailer’ puts emotion into game where you kill people with screwdrivers

The cinema trailer for Hitman: Absolution is out, and I have to admit the first thing I thought of was, “No thanks, I’ve already seen Babylon A.D.!” Of course, the premise is entirely different and I was wrong to jump to such a conclusion. I can’t help but feel that the emotion behind the line, “How many lives would you take to save one?” is sort of lost in a game that is about killing people in as many ways as possible, for reals, no qualms or issues, why are we even having this conversation? But you know, it still looks like a beautiful and lovingly rendered game that I will probably pick up, let’s be honest. Check it out and tell us what you think!

Why do I feel like this will be amazing?

 

if it’s from this trailer? probably the music, music like the one two steps from hell produce do that kind of effect to most trailer and work they are attached to.

if it’s the game itself? probably because Hitman WAS amazing, it always has been though not always consistent…

we’ve just been away from it since the last good Hitman title for too long.
