JustTheTip EP.16 ~ Hitman: Sniper Challenge
This will be one of the shorter reviews. Sniper Challenge, as I’ll be calling it, is a free demo promotional game that was released before Hitman: Absolution. At least that’s my recollection of it. I don’t know how I got it since I didn’t pre-order Hitman: Absolution, but here it is. The game takes about 5-8 minutes to complete and features you sniping a group of people partying on a rooftop.
They provide you with a handful of challenges that will net you bonuses in the main game when you complete them. Apparently even at my best I’m fairly terrible but that’s assuming nobody is cheating on the leaderboard. Frankly I’m skeptical. It’s not bad though! The controls are perfectly serviceable, the game looks nice, and it sounds nice.
If you happen to purchase Hitman: Absolution it probably will benefit you to run through this a few times to net yourself some more gear for the main game. I’m presuming the items are balanced but we won’t know for sure until the day when I play that game comes.
Perfectly fine. It's a demo that they threw in for folks going for Hitman: Absolution.
