Hitman: Absolution PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 3.5 stars out of 4 The bald, well-dressed star of "Hitman: Absolution" has something of a charisma deficit, but the game built around Agent 47 is overflowing with personality. Instead of relying on run-and-gun tactics, the game asks players to think creatively in order to kill the targets. In one mission, for example, I knocked out a chef, stole his clothes, put on his apron and easily slipped by a suspicious group of cops. In another, I hid in garbage dumpsters, ventilation ducts and armoires to avoid detection. Sometimes the artificial intelligence of the game is a bit too quirky, but as a whole "Hitman: Absolution" is bloody good fun. R.S.
