Streets Ahead: New Hitman Video Is Rather Good

People kept telling me this would happen. I first saw Hitman Absolution doing its thing at the Eurogamer Expo last year and expressed some concerns. It was just one level, I knew that, but it was the level chosen to represent the game to the public and the press. Then, nuns. Still, the man on the street (I think his name is Billy Crumpets) would chuckle as I passed: "I'm sure there are plenty of disguises and stealthy suffocations. Marketing is ever a fool's game." Whatever, Crumpets, just move away from my driveway. But perhaps he's been right all along and here's the evidence.

Incidentally, it is a seventeen and a half minute mission walkthrough with commentary, which is exactly what I needed at this point. A guided tour of something that looks to be connected to what I loved about the series in the past, while also being extremely attractive.

For the first time in ages, Hitman and its subtitle are something that I want to play again, even with all the button prompts and dog sex. This is all I wanted to see!
