    Hitman Go is a terrific stealth puzzle game that's as creative as it is fun.

    Hitman GO is one of those unique games that takes the name of a popular series, sticks it onto a game that is not at all similar to its namesake, and winds up being good.

    A smart and seductive reimagining of the Hitman franchise, Hitman GO scratching your barcoded bonce for hours trying to uncover its ingenious solutions.

    Hitman GO is a really great example of what a seasoned developer like Square Enix can do to reinvent an established franchise for a new platform. Rather than shoe-horn some clumsy 3D world onto a screen the size of a deck of cards, Square Enix took the clever route and crafted a unique Hitman experience built on the strengths of iOS.

    A shining example of a mobile adaptation done right, Hitman Go's creators clearly understand both the essence of the franchise and the limitations of the platform. The resulting synthesis is nothing less than brilliant.

    Hitman Go takes the boiled-down essence of the stealth genre and brilliantly translates it into a mobile puzzler that’s easy on the eyes and challenging on the brain.

    Hitman GO is not the obvious way to do a mobile version of the Hitman series, but it's an incredibly creative and fun game in the long-running franchise.

    Agent 47's line of work translates surprisingly well into a board game. [Aug 2014]

    A well designed board game based on the Hitman series with slick graphics and turn based gameplay.

    Even though it's not a true Hitman game, the strategy concept works pretty well, and becomes and outstanding mobile experience that does not lose the soul of the franchise.

    Hitman Go is a brilliant example of how you have to transpose a famous IP on mobile devices. The gameplay is challenging and intriguing, and graphics are exactly something you can feast your eyes on.

    Square Enix Montreal has created a game in Hitman Go that avoids the trappings of so many other attempts to bring popular franchises to mobile devices—and the result is an experience that feels fresh, unique, and exciting from start to finish.
  16. I’m not much of a fan of the Hitman games for PC and consoles, but Hitman Go hits all the right notes for a mobile platform.

    Hitman Go is a smart and well-designed puzzle game that proves being an assassin can be fun, even in a meticulous, turn-based way.

    Hitman GO is not your ordinary mobile porting of a renowned franchise: instead of mocking the action of the console series, Square Enix decided to use Agent 47 skills in a sleek, clever and challenging strategic game.

    A fine, challenging puzzle game that offers both a new way of plying his dark trade and many levels on which to do it.

    Hitman starts on mobile platforms as a turn-based strategy game which will please both fans of the series and those gamers who haven't met Agent 47 yet. Its stylish execution goes hand in hand with debugged in-game system resulting in a title that will consume your time so unpleasantly fast whether you go to school or work.

    It's not perfect, and it certainly won't appeal to everyone, but if you're jonesing for your next taste of the life of an assassin, Hitman GO is the hippest way to emulate everyone's favorite sharp-dressed agent.

    Hitman Go's combination of darkly whimsical setup and deep understanding of the core of the mainline Hitman games results in a mobile title that seems uniquely aware of its place in a bigger picture. And it happens to be a great game to boot.

    Clever: With Go, Square Enix doesn’t try to emulate the cinematic action from PC or console, but instead worked out a clever design for touch controls that captures the spirit of Agent 47.

    Hitman Go is a (not-so-classic) board game, with a "stealth" twist coming from the original series. It's always clever and brilliant.

    As unassuming and stylish as the rest of the series is melodramatic and bombastic, Hitman Go is an impressive debut for Square Enix Montreal. The play style recalls the strategic thinking of the console/PC games, but does so with an entirely new style that fits touch-based devices like a fine leather glove.

    Hitman Go is a rare breed in mobile games because it doesn’t try to copy another popular title, or provide a lazy spin-off from its source material. In fact, it manages to take an existing license and apply it to an entirely new genre, whilst still managing to maintain the spirit of the original.

    Probably not what any fan had expected, this nifty little title holds its own far better than any direct port would have been able to. One of the biggest surprises of the year so far is a pleasant one.

    Hitman GO is far cleverer than it has any right to be, putting a refreshingly unconventional spin on the stealth genre.

    Hitman GO uses the pedigree to get people in the door, but the gameplay is what will keep them coming back, making it a should buy.

    Hitman GO is a smart and satisfying puzzle game, with loads of content and plenty of variation. It's also totally adorable.

    One target, sneaking, disguising, killing and getting out: all of it is in the stylish and strategic board game Hitman GO, but in a totally different way. A little bit weird, but it fits very well in the Hitman universe. The puzzles are fun and varied, but could've been a bit more challenging.

It has a very stylized look and manages to be very reminiscent of the Hitman series's themes. Let there be no confusion, this is a puzzle game. All of the levels require the player to approach each level differently than the previous one. It comes with loads of content, each with different locations. This game is well worth the money. 10/10 Full Review »

It's visual style and gameplay represents the core Hitman experience in an excellent mobile puzzler. I really hope Square Enix continues to make mobile games out of established franchises, because games like this and the excellent Deus Ex: The Fall are some of my favourite mobile games ever.
