Some are worried that Hitman: Absolution is going to be way too action oriented, that perhaps it's loosing its stealth roots. But the developers are trying to quell your fears saying, "Most of the classic mechanics from the old games are back with a vengeance in addition to many new game mechanics, abilities and traits. Absolution is a huge and diverse game, being on the run is only one part of it. A core value for any Hitman game is freedom of choice and we believe we are going beyond anything we have done in the past. There will be more replayability and features in Absolution than in any Hitman game ever."
