    Stealthy disguises lead into explosive moments of improvisation. Best-laid plans come to fruition through opportunities, and carefully timed, critical moments mean the difference between a master stroke and a quick death. The 2016 Hitman offers the best of its kind, with an episodic structure that clicks, sandbox playgrounds to pick apart and brilliant design and presentation on all levels.

    There's definitely something addictive in the new Hitman, especially when revisiting the same locations over and over again - thanks to interesting challenges. Level design is impressive and multiple ways to eliminate targets will keep you occupied for a long time.

    The new money lives up to the Blood Money in this darkly comic, icy cool stealth/brain-teaser/drop-a-toilet-on-a-target's-head-'em-up. It's a hit, man.

    Those who regard Skyrim as a virtual tourism app, will enjoy exploring every nook and cranny in Hitman. If I had to pick just one reason to play this game, it's because you can immerse yourself in its meticulously created mini-worlds.

    The story may be a bit thin, but as far as gameplay is concerned, Hitman is an assassin's dream come true.

    Who cares about the episodic release when Hitman Season 1 can offer a compelling, smart and entertaining experience, just like Hitman games should do? The gameplay is strong and, despite a plot that is lacking deepness, the season is fun and some maps, like Sapienza and Hokkaido, have a lot of replay value.

    The season ends with a cliffhanger of sorts – of course – which sets it up for Season Two; still, I’m still left wondering what exactly is happening. Perhaps played all at once, Hitman‘s story would make sense, but this episodic system has done nothing for it.

There is lot of challenges,Hitman is a very fun sandbox game, where you play different missions depending on the place you decided to travel. There is lot of challenges, ways to kill your target and weapons that help you in your tasks. Missions usually take a lot of time to beat, but they don´t become frustrating and the have a lot of ways to be beaten. The major flaw is that a lot of extra weapons just feel the same or really unnecessary, and the start tutorials are a little slow, but overall a great game Expand

    Great HITMAN game. It's been too long since the last game. Hopefully it doesn't take another few years to develop another title in the series.Great HITMAN game. It's been too long since the last game. Hopefully it doesn't take another few years to develop another title in the series. The graphics are very good and optimized quite well. I only wished there were more missions, overall the game felt very short. Expand

    A game with unrivaled creativity of ways to eliminate the targets and good designed world.

    An very immersive stealth/assassination game with numerous ways to complete missions --
    the variation of gameplay tactics offered for each mission gives the game a good amount of replayability. But in spite of that, Hitman 2016 is highly devoid of a decent plot, character development and overall content; and is made worse by its episodic format.

    Multiple targets, multiple methods to assassinate and multiple maps. That sums it all up.
    The only and the most important negative point is
    Multiple targets, multiple methods to assassinate and multiple maps. That sums it all up.
    The only and the most important negative point is AI. AI is what this kind of games need. AI could be lot more better. After killing a target, guards search area for few minutes. Then they put the dead body in a bag and that's it. After that they stand where they were before, as if nothing special has happened. No alerts, no stand-by. Nothing. Which made game look unrealistic.
    But generally it's a decent game with cool graphics and great stealth mechanics.
