    It’s serious if they want it to be serious, but it’s also incredibly silly if you’re in the mood for that. Which ever way you choose to play it, though, it’s consistently fun, and that makes Hitman 2 well worth checking out.

    Hitman 2 is possibly the best version of this darkly comic murder simulator we’ve seen in quite some time.

    It might not propel the series forward by leaps and bounds, but it takes small meaningful steps that improve the formula nonetheless.

    With Hitman 2, IO Interactive didn’t take much risk. The team simply and smartly refined its formula, rubbing away some of the first game’s flaws. And it works: Hitman 2 is a generous and fun game.

    Hitman 2 complies with what is expected of a sequel: greater and better content. IO Interactive does not try to revolutionize its formula, simply presents more killing opportunities on each map.

    Hitman 2 feels like a slightly improved content pack over the previous game, with new missions and locations but not enough innovation or meaningful changes in gameplay. If you liked the previous game, though, it won't disappoint you providing many hours in its quality stealth sandbox experience.

    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.

If you were a fan of the 2016 Hitman you will seriously enjoy this, they packed everything they could and even tho it's not perfect and I encountered some bugs, this is still the most fun Hitman game I have ever played and I'm coming from Hitman 2 Silent Assassin and Blood Money so believe me this is a must buy if your truly love the Hitman game style because we have a lot here! 10/10 Expand

    La suite du Hitman arrivé à maturité en 2016 mais cette fois en un seul morceau et non pas en format épisodique à la mords-moi-le-noeud mêmeLa suite du Hitman arrivé à maturité en 2016 mais cette fois en un seul morceau et non pas en format épisodique à la mords-moi-le-noeud même si une année plus tard, une sortie en version boîte contenait l"intégralité du jeu (la "saison complète" !).

    On reprend donc le grand chauve pour de nouvelles missions et des niveaux inédits encore un peu plus grands qu'en 2016 et qui fourmillent de possibilités... et d'opportunités. A dire vrai et dans ce Hitman 2 plus qu'ailleurs, Monsieur Code-barre est un génie des accidents malencontreux et fatals, une destination finale à lui tout seul... Le flingue ? on ne s'en sert jamais, c'est sale ; le snipe ? anecdotique et de surcroît une option compliquée et peu discrète...

    Se déguiser, s'approcher de la cible, l'isoler, puis l'exécuter tel un homme invisible aux yeux de tous, voilà le secret de l'un des meilleurs jeux d'infiltration devenu unique en son genre. On peut sauvegarder quand on veut et on n'hésite donc pas à recharger lors d'une faute d'inattention, car tout doit être propre et net ; l'affrontement, la fusillade sont des pertes de temps et contraires à la déontologie de l'assassin silencieux.

    Les ambiances sont à la fois réalistes et non dénuées d'une ironie plus ou moins mordante et les pnj nombreux, très nombreux parfois sont autant d'occasions à saisir ou exploiter. On peut dorénavant se cacher dans la foule et le jeu vous indique dans une fenêtre les évènements clés ou les caméras qui vous ont repéré. Pouvoir se planquer dans la végétation est une autre nouveauté très interéssante.

    L'interface est un modèle du genre, tout tombe sous la main et s'apprivoise aisément. On regrettera l'absence de voix françaises et une musique plutôt quelconque. On peut déplorer également quelques ralentissements dans le mode 1440p/60 : ils restent heureusement rares et nous préférons malgré tout ce mode au 4K/30 (deux modes évidemment réservés à la Xbox One X), la différence graphique étant minime. Des graphismes très proprets d'ailleurs, assez détaillés même si moins impressionnants que d'autres gros jeux triple A.

    Signalons qu'à part les cibles désignées, il est possible de terminer le jeu pacifiquement : on assomme, on ne tue pas les innocents... Un régal de déguisement et de furtivité donc pour une suite brillante et très bien pensée.

Troufám si však tvrdit, že je tomu spíše zásluhou bídné konkurence než evoluční křivkou vývoje. Ačkoliv je pokračování poznamenáno menšími překážkami ve vývoji, což menu a posloupnost misí přiznávají, jde o podařený stealth titul. Že si mapy a variabilita přístupu kradou pozornost pro sebe, je naprosto v pořádku. Jen by to chtělo vylepšit umělou inteligenci a posunout uvěřitelnost kamufláží na další úroveň. Snahu o multiplayer hodnotím pozitivně. Tedy až na sniperskou exhibici, z níž jsem měl až pouťový dojem. Jako celek může Hitman 2 připomínat obrovské rozšíření a patrně nebudu jediný, kdo od něj víc ani nečekal. Expand

I'm not trying to say it's a complete disaster but it's aI love the Hitman series, but this game is the first Hitman I'm not impressed with. I'm not trying to say it's a complete disaster but it's a huge disappointment and you should put your $60 towards something else and wait until the price drops a lot or rent it. It's more of a downgrade spinning off Hitman 2016. Not much of it is different from the last one either. Graphically in a lot of areas it looks worse than it's predecessor. I know it's only been two years, but damn! You guys couldn't have improve the lighting, textures, characters models, colors, etc.? But instead they only had time to enhanced the resolution to 4K. Wow... It's 2018 and some gaming industries still don't understand that high resolution isn't the only thing needed to make a game look good. The cut scenes are so dated! I mean seriously pictures only? No motion at all in the cut scenes in between missions. What the **** is this 1996? OK, enough talking about graphics, because that doesn't matter as much as the gameplay. The assassination are still great and it's cool that there are still a ton of opportunities to make missions more fun, easier and replay-able. The levels are huge and detailed as usual and there's a lot to going on in them. However there are flaws. The NPC's AI is just stupid. You can easily run pass them, or run away from them when detected and if they don't get a good look at you they won't report it. If you're hidden and shoot the target you're after and they normally don't go into high alert. There's a lot of flaw in Hitman 2's enemy and AI system. The game has a few glitches and some of them are pretty annoying. To list two sometimes NPCs will stop talking and that often results in them not getting the things done they're suppose to in revealed opportunities. Sometimes the game will load for really long time or never load at all. Come on polish your **** Hitman 2 is a game that had so much potential. But sadly the Warner Bros. Interactive entertainment wanted a quick cash grab, so they obviously rushed it. They should've waited 1-2 more years to release it, that way the designers and programmers could've done their jobs correctly. The only things the game improves upon is having better accent that fit the country that you're in level by level and all levels our open this time. It even includes episodes from Hitman 2016. But other than that there really isn't anything worthy to look into. Expand

When you put the disc in it won't allow you to play anything. It tells you that you don't have the required content and to go to the store, but when you go to the store it tells you that you own the game and that it is installed ready to play!? After 30 minutes back and forth trying to work it out i finally discovered that you have to find each individual mission and download each one individually!! It doesn't even tell you this! To make things worse i can only select some of the missions to download them. For some bizarre reason it won't allow me to select certain missions of the main game to download. And because you have to search for each mission on the store and download them individually it meant i had to search online for what missions the game has so i knew exactly what missions i was looking for! IOI Interactive has done some really silly things in its time but this one really does take the cake. They have a bizarre habit of making things unnecessarily complicated for themselves and for their fans. Like how Season 1 had about 3 or 4 different release models as they kept scrapping and changing them and confusing everyone. It's as if they enjoy annoying us or something. Expand
