    Hitman 2 is a new coat of paint and an updated model of the previous year’s racing car. Sure, it may look similar to its predecessor, but it is improved in almost every facet of production, allowing the player to marvel in its familiar excellence.

    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.

    Hitman 2 is the perfect game for fans of the franchise that are looking for an excuse to dive back in. It doesn’t do much to improve on the original formula, but the original formula is still fun and exciting enough to carry the game when combined with IO Interactives attention to detail, level design, and NPC AI. The whole game feels like you’re wandering around living, breathing environments that are built to challenge your skills and creativity as an assassin, but that manages to do so in a way that feels fun and addicting even after multiple runs through the same level.

    Essentially more of its predecessor but with a more consistent quality of levels. Which is fine: its predecessor was great.

    Hitman 2 is a good stealth playground, although it missed some of its best chances to be a great game.
  6. Hitman 2 is a good game. One of a kind. Enjoyable play with good level design.

    Hitman 2 doesn’t add much of note to the structure of its predecessor and thus feels more like Hitman 1.5 than a full-blown sequel. But that’s not a bad thing. By offering more of the deepest, fullest stealth sandboxes in gaming in one single package rather than six episodic ones, it earns its keep. The inclusion of Hitman (2016) is a bonus for those that didn’t catch the reboot initially. Here’s hoping they put more effort into the plot next time.

Great, wide and interesting to explore locations, tons of weapons and ways to eliminate your targets, each level tells a lot of stories, which actually is a part of game plot and lore. You want to replay each level again and again to find new secrets and complete challenges. Your creativity and fantasy are the only limits of how and what to do, and game awards your creativity with interesting situations and given opportunities. Must have for everyone. Expand

    Did you ever play point and click adventure games; get frustrated with a puzzle and wish you could just select "use gun on man"?

    If so, then have I got the game for you. IO have created a collection of wonderful collection of little sandboxes and packed them full of fun and creative ways to work from one end to the other. Whilst they will occasionally hand-hold just a little too much - perhaps a sign of the times we now live in - and I would have preferred it to allow for slightly more free-form game play in the way Blood Money (still the franchise at its best) did it. There is more than enough options and just enough freedom to keep you coming back for hours on end.

    It's telling of the quality of a game when I can say my single biggest gripe is the lackluster cutscenes - a noticeable step backwards from the sublime performance capture featured in Hitman 2016.

    TLDR; It's some more of the same gameplay - and enough of it to justify the cost of admission - you likely know if its for you or not already.

    I miss the limited save feature based on difficulty to comeback. Couple of more missions would be better too.. not only six!

    Wouldn't buy it myself. After close to 2 hours of testing it didn't hook me and i refunded.

    But definitely the best Hitman so far.
