If you're one of those people who thought that Absolution didn't feel like a "true" Hitman game. If all you wanted was a classic Hitman formula with sandbox levels, mission planning, multiple ways to eliminate your enemies...If that is what you want then this is the game for You. This is the game for people who have been craving for a Blood Money kind of experience. The game is good and we'll talk about it in a second but first I gotta tell you something, dudes and dudettes. The latest patch does let you play the game in offline mode with all your toys unlocked but you may lose your mission progress when losing connectivity in middle of a mission. Alright. Time to talk about the game. There are 6 missions in the game. Each mission takes place in a different location. Once again we have our classic hotel setting. There's also a modeling show in Paris, a terrorist compound and more. All the locations look and feel different and most of them are downright gorgeous. All missions take place in big sandbox levels. You are free to explore the levels how you like. Of course you need disguises to explore most parts of the levels but you'll figure it out. Each mission has several scripted events you can trigger to eliminate your targets. You don't have to do them tho. There are A LOT of different ways to take down your targets and that gives us a great replay value for each level. Not only is it cool to discover and play through all the scripted events but there are also different challenges you can complete. If that's not enough for you either then you're free to complete the levels any way you can imagine and pull it off. There's no restrictions. You can even go in guns blazin' if you so want to. However you are quite squishy so I recommend using the returning feature: Cover system. I talked about it in my Absolution review. I was saying that a perfect Hitman game would be Blood Money like levels and gameplay mixed with the added cover feature and weapon handling from Absolution...My dream came true. This game is a combination of that and it feels amazing. Not only that but the contracts from Absolution make a return as well. You can create your own contracts or play user made ones. Again adding to the already big replay value. A big problem in Absolution was the disguise system. Disguise yourself as a security guard and every single security guard saw through your disguise. That made the disguises kind of useless. This game has the perfect disguise system. You can take down a security guard and disguise yourself as him. Now some security guards will see through your disguise. Most likely security personnel in a higher position. However other security grunts won't tell the difference. None of the other staff members will have a glue either: Cooks, janitors, waiters...You fool 'em all. What items can you choose to use in your mission planning? Fiber wire and silverballers make a return. You can also plant assault rifles and a sniper rifle in a safe spot if you want to. You can have remote explosives, poisons, knives and a very useful lockpick. Hell, you can even have a machete! You can choose to start the mission in front of a hotel or a palace as 47 or you can start off undercover as one of the staff members. The other starting locations need to be unlocked first tho. So is the game worth the full price? If you're looking for the next great Hitman game then it should be a no brainer. Get the game right now! However if you have not played Blood Money yet or it has been a LONG time since you last played it then I would suggest waiting till either season 2 comes out or grab the game on a sale. Till then just play Blood Money. The thing is that HITMAN has only 6 levels right now. You can complete those super fast. I think it only took me about 10-12 hours to finish the story and then an extra 12 hours replaying the levels. The replay value is super high in this game but the campaign itself feels short. There is no excuse for making this an episodic game. Hopefully they don't charge us another 49.99 for season 2.
This game has most of the good gameplay mechanics in Absolution, while bringing back what old fans said Absolution was lacking. If you liked Hitman at any point in the past, you will be getting pretty much the same with this. Theres nothing they seemingly tried to innovate with, but not all sequels need ground breaking things to make it fun and interesting.
While this game fails to innovate, it's never been the developers' goal to reinvent the Hitman. They've listened to the fans who demanded the gameplay reminiscent of previous games like Blood Money rather than story driven Absolution. And playing it right now, many months and patches after launch, I can thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wanted the old school Hitman game.
This is the best Hitman game yet. Levels are huge and gorgeous and packed full of life. There are a multitide of ways to approach and take out your targets and the game is infinitely replayable as its stuffed full of contracts and allows for more to be created and downloaded. The mechanics of stealth and disguise are the best they've ever been in the series and a big step up from Absolution's messy systems. There's no linearity here, just big clockwork worlds that feel completely natural and look fantastic. Hitman also gives you lots of different goals and challenges to work towards as you learn the environments and how best to exploit the game's mechanics. If you're a fan of stealth games or any other title in the Hitman series. I can't recommend this one enough.
When I first heard that new Hitman game was going to be episodic, I thought to myself ?It is just piece of sh*t idea I?ve ever seen in my life.? Then, the game came out I watched its? videos, read reviews but didn?t buy it. Because, I only buy episodic games when all of the episodes come out and the game is very expensive in my lovely country where there is a luxury tax for games. I bought the game in autumn sales and well the game is so amazing that I can?t stop telling people how good this game is. I realized that why they decided to make the game episodic. Every single map is huge, very detailed and I don?t only talk about the details which help to kill the targets. In Paris map, a model and a security officer love each other, they talk secretly because a model doesn?t want this to be heard because he is a security officer. I know she is a superficial individual. (I said ?individual? because I don?t want to be banned and I don?t want to trigger someone you know everyone is getting triggered nowadays). I have to say that I don?t usually play episodes more than once except the ones have multiple endings but I do want to kill the targets in every possible ways so I don?t pass a map without getting everything done. In addition, the challenges are very good and fun. I think Absolution is not a good game and its challenges are stupid. If you want to complete them you have to have every weapon in the mission but it doesn?t make sense. Besides, when you wear some uniform let?s say a police uniform, every police officers in the map start to suspect. I said ?it is okey they are cop and they can know each other? but every shopkeeper know each other even in some mission you wear a hazmat suit covering every part of your body but other people who wear it star to suspect, WTF. They have fixed this, only chiefs, supervisors can suspect when you wear same uniforms. Some players complain about the opportunities which show everything that is necessary to complete the mission. However, you can make them off in the settings and there are many ways to kill that the game doesn?t indicate. By the way, finally you can save manually which is lacking in Absolution.
