    Hitman strips the series back to its satisfying, and winning, formula. A few technical issues aren't enough to ruin a strong start to Agent 47's new episodic campaign. [Issue#268, p.68]

    A perfectly formed bite of Hitman action, set in a rich location and full of murderous opportunity. [May 2016, p.68]

    This first episode strikes a fine balance between accessibility and pleasing long term fans to make this the finest slice of Hitman since Blood Money. Some technical issues do sadly mar an otherwise superb start to Agent 47’s latest.

    Hitman: Episode One represents a magnificent return to form for the franchise.

    When you're playing and engaged, Hitman is a thoughtful, well-paced, and beautiful introduction to what should be an incredible multi-part adventure. It's hard to imagine how Square Enix and IO could possibly screw up something this good.

    Hitman is off to a good start, but the ridiculous load times and the always-online issues bring down an otherwise impressive entry in the Hitman series.

    Hitman needs a better focus, fewer bugs and more variation in the next episode.

Enemies seem little smart and little dumb. Kudos to IQ devs Expand

    Episode one is truly a step in the right direction for the Hitman franchise.. I have not had this much fun playing a hitman game since bloodEpisode one is truly a step in the right direction for the Hitman franchise.. I have not had this much fun playing a hitman game since blood money.. I was a little weary about jumping in on the intro pack, knowing it's a incomplete game.. And up until the point where I downloaded it I knew very little about it, other then it was a new hitman game..I was prepared for absolution all over again but I couldn't have been any more wrong..

    This game feels almost like a natural continuation of blood money. It's Hitman at it's best.. I can't say enough good things about it.. I gave it a 9 and not a 10 only because the load times are a bit much at times (PS4) But It's not game breaking in anyway..

    This is a truly rich, and dense game, and only having the one mission lets you truly explore the level and replay it over and over again.. there are literally dozens of ways to complete the mission.. With past games blood money for example I always found myself playing a mission for about 20 minutes and after finding the target rush through and complete it as quickly as possible to move onto the next level... But with the way the new game has gone episodic it eliminates that feeling of rushing through to move on.. You can fully appreciate every detail of the world.

    Losing faith in metacritic purely because of how user reviews are written by blatant fanboys or spoilt kids who care nothing for helpingLosing faith in metacritic purely because of how user reviews are written by blatant fanboys or spoilt kids who care nothing for helping people make informed decisions on their purchases.

    When I played the beta I was left underwhelmed for two reasons really. The first is that the tutorials are short which while understandable it didn't represent the game. The second was that the graphics of the tutorials are intentionally basic - which led me to believe this was representative.

    Once you get into the main game this all changes. The environment is huge and the graphics are beautiful. My only two gripes are that you need a constant net connection which is unnecessary - surely a connection could be used for menus alone without carrying it into the game where a disconnection screws everything up? Second concern is this episodic release schedule. It makes no sense. If it means they can tailor the next missions based on feedback this is a good thing but time will tell.

    If you use metacritic to make your decisions be very wary of 0s and 10s.

    The very idea of paying for a game that has at most a few hours of content is ridiculous. MGS tried to get away with it and everyoneThe very idea of paying for a game that has at most a few hours of content is ridiculous. MGS tried to get away with it and everyone complained that Ground Zeroes was too much money for not enough game. This is a complete joke and I will NOT pay for this. I hope IO is reading these reviews and understands that they have lost an easy sell here. I have a full time Job and would have paid for the game no questions asked had it been completed, but the idea that I will accept a partial game while they tweak certain aspects here and there is inconceivably stupid. How dumb do they think we are.

    The whole update system had ruined the gaming industry by allowing companies to release half made games and patch them as necessary when players complain about different components of the story. Don't like the AI wait a month and we will have a patch. Bad server issues, here's a patch. The only thing worse than this for gaming right now is the idea of buying upgrades and in game currency to get better items.

    Have we not already paid for the game? Why are you guys allowing them to sell you something you have already paid for. They are intentionally making the in game currencies harder to so that you will purchase more currency cards.

    Despicable!!

    First and foremost, Hitman isn't a bad game by any means. It looks good, plays well, and is actually quite clever. However, the delivery isFirst and foremost, Hitman isn't a bad game by any means. It looks good, plays well, and is actually quite clever. However, the delivery is absurd. Episodic? Really? What this says to me is that someone pitched an idea of a full Hitman game to Square, and instead of jumping in they decided to dip their toe to test the water. If they don't believe in their own product, why should I? It is a f@#king CRIME that they will inevitably do this to Final Fantasy 7. A huge game that fit on a original PlayStation disc releases episodically on a PlayStation 4 Blu-Ray disc! I know you are here to find out whether Hitman is good or not, I'm sorry I just had to get that off my chest. Anyway Hitman does have it's moments and in it's defense you could get quite a bit out of one episode by trying an infinite number of ways to complete a mission. That said, with all the FULL AND COMPLETE games out or coming out this game will probably not be worth your time. Expand

Who in hell wants toI used to love the Hitman series, but now with it being sold by episodes, I won't play it. I don't play episode games. Who in hell wants to pay for a game, to play for a few hours, then have to wait to pay again, and play for a few more hours. No thank you! If they ever pull their heads out of their arses and realize that this concept sucks and actually make a full game, I might think about purchasing it. As of now, they have lost a fan. Expand
