    Hitman 2 successfully builds upon the foundation IO Interactive laid in 2016. The sandbox structure of each map will surely facilitate several playthroughs before it gets stale. Meanwhile, new additions like Ghost Mode add multiplayer to the Hitman package. It's not perfect, but it's damn close.

    To be honest, Hitman is an eternal, few game franchises have ever used the same set of mechanics as successfully, and the focus on improving them has led them to this revamp, which makes assassination newer and fresher than ever. If you like Hitman, you will love this.

    All told, Hitman 2 is a heck of a treat for Hitman fans, offering the most refined mechanics, craziest antics, and most complex levels yet seen in the franchise. Each of the five core levels can be played for potentially a dozen or more hours, offering fantastic replayability for those who like to mess around with the Hitman formula. There’s an argument to be had that Hitman 2 plays it a little self, but when it’s so damned good, and unique, at what it does, you’ll hear little argument from me.

    Hitman 2 is a good stealth playground, although it missed some of its best chances to be a great game.

    This is HITMAN 2. A remarkable game and a sequel that is mainly aimed at those who played and loved the first game. On the contrary, those who did not get crazy from the previous adventure of the bald agent, will not do so now either.
  6. Hitman 2 is a good game. One of a kind. Enjoyable play with good level design.

    It's a solid expansion pack with all the merits and flaws of the original game. And for some reason it has "2" in the title.

    After playing around 100 hours since launch, here is my opinion on the game:

    1st: I own all the Hitman Season 1 missions (including Bonus ans Patient Zero Campaign). They feel complete as part of the FREE legacy upgrade for owners. Colorado feels playable in SASO, crowd and briefcase and a lot to the already well known maps.

    2nd: Few upgrades since season 1 but they are meaningful. The briefcase is a bit overpowered (you can smuggle almost anything anywhere and it can be thrown to knock out people). Crowd is a very welcomed feature (especially in Mumbai's mission), foliage was clearly designed for the mission in Columbia and is working as intended.

    3rd: Difficulties, we had to wait for the whole game to be released in late 2016 to have multiple difficulties in Season 1. Here we have 3 difficulties, Casual, Professional, Master. I strongly advise avoiding the casual difficulty and encourage people playing in Professional while turning off the opportunity tips. Master is very hard so I advise it for veteran players while it clearly is a challenge.

    4th: who should play this game? Well it is the best Hitman game yet. Nothing more to add if you already know the saga. If you are looking at the game without playing any of the Hitman's game, you have to be some kind of a completionist. If you play a game only once and are not willing to replay certain mission to achieve specific challenges (way to kill a target, easter eggs to find, disguise to find, weapon to use....) you will go through the game in casual mode and it will take less than 5hours to complete. On the other side, if you are willing to put some time in the game while trying to achieve as much as possible in a single mission, this could be your next title. And if you can afford the legacy pack, the pleasure will be doubled.

    5th: what about those new new multiplayer modes? Well you have either sniper co-op or regular killing in versus. Both are really fun and will ask you to invest some time either in matchmaking or playing with a friend (spoiler alert: playing with friend is great as you can sync you action in coop or taunt in versus, using your favorite VOIP software).

    TLDR: great game if you like replayability

    Excellent game, improves on the last installment in many ways. Massive amount of things to do if you want to complete all the challenges.

    Hitman 2 (2018) Should have been called HITMAN: Season 2. It improves the gameplay in several departments over the 2016 version and bringsHitman 2 (2018) Should have been called HITMAN: Season 2. It improves the gameplay in several departments over the 2016 version and brings back the briefcase for sniper rifles. For owners of the 2016 game, all the content of that game is included in the sequel. The new missions are on average better than the previous ones. Targets can be assassinated in many different ways and the beautiful levels are constructed as an open sandbox.

    I played through all Hitman games since release and this one is definately among the better titles. 9/10.

    Nice, classic hitman game with a pretty nice graphic (what is not really necessary for me, but it's really good) and fast responsive controls.Nice, classic hitman game with a pretty nice graphic (what is not really necessary for me, but it's really good) and fast responsive controls. Every single level is a small masterpiece, i really had a lot of emotions playing that. Not a 10 because of lack of innovation and degraded cut-scenes. Anyway, i recomьend you to play it if you never played hitman-series before. But don't forget about 1st season. It's even better, as for me! Expand

The game has smooth movement, but lacks the newest in game mechanics and details. Graphics are good, it's about the same as the previous version. However, it’s a very expensive game, completed Hitman 2 within 4 hours, it contains only 6 new missions, but you can complete these missions in different ways, just like the previous Hitman. It feels more like an expansion than a new game to be honest, and one hell of an expensive one too if you want to buy the gold edition. Expand

Oyun save dosyaları bir sonraki açılışta yüklemiyor. Hedeflri öldürene kadar 10 üzeri sıradan npc etkisiz hale getirince donuyr ve oyundan atıyor. Hedefleri öldürünce hiç bir şey yokmuş gibi devam ediyor. Az önce 47 hedef öldürüp denize attım bir şey olmadı. Oyunun yapımcıları ilgilensin. Bir terslik var ortada . o kadar para veriyoz istediğimiz gibi oynayamıyoruz.!!!!! Expand
