The fourth Hitman takes Agent 47 - our bald, barcoded badass - and transplants him from England to New Orleans, Los Angeles, and good ol' Sin City for more of the monotonous. But that's okay when you've got such serious attention to detail. Closets for hiding, piano wire for elegant slayings, the slightest creak of a floorboard (heard precisely in the 5.1 mix) - nothing is without purpose. Even the facial expressions of your target, a distinct advantage of high-def gaming, can be crucial to surviving the hunt.
