The Hitman's a rusty shot, but he still has it.

It's been quite some time since the last Hitman game, so this one had to hit it off big. And it did. Sort of. The game itself is quite fun, if you know what you're doing. But that's the thing, only if you know what you're doing. Once you know the plan for a mission, it's quite satisfying to see it all come together. However, you won't know the plan until you've played the map a few times through, and without the ability to save where you want to, it's frustrating to go through the levels again and again. Sure, there are checkpoints, but all the enemies respawn when you use them, and that's quite a pain with some of the checkpoint placements. The story is okay, but the dialogue feels robotic, laughably so. The story is so-so; appealing to the humanity of a cloned perfected assassin doesn't sit well with me. However, even with this these shortcomings, the game is still a blast to play.

Try it out at a friend's house first, but if this is your thing, this game will be your thing.
