    The Sniper Challenge isn't part of Hitman: Absolution so it's definitely worth pre-ordering if you're a fan of the series. Asides from the fact there's only one level, the game is fun and addictive and it's not a bad incentive to pre-order Hitman: Absolution. Better than some extra guns anyway, that's for sure.

    Hitman: Sniper Challenge is a great appetizer for Absolution. In the beginning you may be a bit lost but after a few games you shoot people down like it's your job. You'll become a real hitman and that is perhaps the best thing a game like Sniper Challenge can do. If this quality remains in Absolution, expect great things.

    When all is said and done, Hitman: Sniper Challenge feels more like a polished PSN or XBLA title than the typical demo or cheap DLC item that is bundled with preorders. All it really needs is a few more levels, and it would likely sell well on the digital storefronts. Here's hoping IO and Square make it a full game one day.

    For a game that can take mere moments to complete, there's an impressive amount of depth to Sniper Challenge.

    As pre-order bonuses go this is definitely a cut above, but it's also an addictive and rewarding mini-game in its own right.

    If you're uninitiated in the ways of Agent 47, this may be a little bit of a wobbly entry into the series, but it's certainly worth it of you're a huge fan of the franchise.

    Addictive arcade morsel and the most attractive pre-order bonus we've ever seen. [Aug 2012, p.84]

    This game is really addictive.
    It's simple but it stands really perfectly for the hitman-feeling.
    I was very surprised that it's such a low

    I was very surprised that it's such a low budget pre-order + 1 little mission.
    There is a ranking list, on which u try to improve your ranking.
    Furthermore you gain some sniper awards which you can take with you over to the main game.

    I absolutely love it!
