Requires HITMAN (base game) to use this episode
Tracking two targets, the “Gilded Cage” mission challenges players to eliminate private banker Claus Strandberg, holed up inside the secure Swedish Consulate, and army General Reza Zaydan, protected by his elite squad of soldiers who have taken over an abandoned school.
From the busy bazaars and bustling marketplace, to the angry mobs calling for justice outside the Swedish consulate, Marrakesh promises HITMAN players the lure of voyeurism and the thrill of infiltration.

This map is not as great and thought out like Sapienza or Paris were. While it is pretty big, the size of it causes little tedium, mostly because your targets are on opposite sides of the map. There are also a lot of closed areas, and while it's not a bad thing, what makes it bad is that while map itself is big, it feels crammed mostly because of different "types" of NPC being so close to each other. Not bad, but sadly not as alive and colorful as Sapienza. Still the same great gameplay, though, so there is no reason not to get it, because it's still a nice pack of fun.
Limited disguises and targets that are literally on opposite ends of the map make this a repetitive gameplay experience. The entire market that is supposed to be the heartbeat of the level ends up being nothing but an NPC-laden landscape. Arguably the weakest episode in my book.
Marrakesh so far proves to be potentially the most unique location in Hitman, taking place in an unconventional location. Despite this however, Marrakesh is perhaps the most underwhelming of all the Hitman episode so far. Marrakesh is a beautiful location. I haven't played a game that takes place in this location, so its a breath of fresh air to be able to experience it. Despite this however, the presentation of Marrakesh is undermined by the lack of foreign accents or languages. Despite being native citizens, nearly everyone in Marrakesh speaks with an American accent in English, which can be immersion breaking, and be hard to separate the characters from previous episodes. The style of the location, with the market place, school and embassy makes Marrakesh graphically fantastic however.
This is the third episode of the new Hitman game. This time we're going to Marrakesh and we must kill a banker and a general. Marrakesh displays all of the new game's potential. The map is huge and very detailed. There are plenty options available and lots of locations to explore. It is an awesome episode and it is the proof that Hitman is back to its former glory.
HITMAN Episode 3 Marrakesh takes you to another large location that has a very different feeling than the past episodes, this time taking you to an outdoor marketplace, makeshift military base, and the Swedish consulate with the job of eliminating a banker and army general. The environment gives you many different ways to reach your target, such as posing as member of a news team or as a masseuse, and it also makes it more difficult to reach some of those disguises or targets. There are a lot of people around, alert guards, and you might find it more difficult to lure people to secluded areas. The more alert AI, large and detailed level, and multiple ways to accomplish your goal make this another really good Hitman episode that is worth playing. The only thing that this level fails at when compared to others is in believability, it ends up looking strange that all these different areas and tourists, protesters, businessmen, and soldiers are all so near each other and not really effecting one another when compared to the games past levels that felt like a real location.
