    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.

Since it's release in 2016, alot has changed, followingI've played every Hitman game there is, and this one is definitely the best. Since it's release in 2016, alot has changed, following complaints from players. The always-online mode was changed to allow for uninterrupted play, even during a loss of connection - so, most people who wrote a hate rant about the game, because of this single issue, have nothing left to complain about. Still, they never updated their reviews to reflect this change. Just so you know, if you read this, most bad reviews do not accurately describe the game in it's current state. Most of the things people have complained about in the past are fixed now. Expand

    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.
