    For now, Sapienza is a fabulously strong episode, and one of the series’ greatest hits.

    Huge, open and beautiful. Sapienza offers up a different sort of challenge to Paris, and is a promising sign for Hitman's future.

    Pleasingly, the menus aren’t troubled with the same frustrating lag that plagued the interface at the launch of the debut episode, and the often horrifically long loading times from Paris have been trimmed.

    Episode Two is better than the first, both because its featured level is a more varied, interesting location, and because it eases the uncertainty of the episodic release and sets a precedent for excellence going forward.

    This Italian job is another dynamic, and darkly comic, Hitman mission.

    A strong and marked improvement over The Showstopper, Sapienza begins to irrefutably prove Io Interactive’s vision for its episodic release model of the latest incarnation of Hitman. Offering an absolute wealth of possibilities, Sapienza is made to be replayed time and again in order to discover every single one of the creative and imaginative murder methods available.

    If you value single player experience above all, Sapienza will leave you dissatisfied. [07/2016, p.73]

    Better than the first episode: The map is much bigger and the places are much more different and diverse than each other. There are manyBetter than the first episode: The map is much bigger and the places are much more different and diverse than each other. There are many disguises to find out, many challenges to complete, and 3 targets with a bunch of different and fun opportunities to neutralize. And if you would like more challenge, try to do opportunities on your own with no help from the game.

    Two faults I found: 1) No moving cars and motorcycles in the roads, which diminishes the realism a little bit .
    2) some annoying but not too much bugs.

    So enjoy this episode, and stop complaining about the episodic format because there is a plenty of content in every episode

    Many people desepisodic format. And while it may look cheap and tiresome, I think its perfiect for HITMAN.
    Why? Becuase players should feel
    Many people desepisodic format. And while it may look cheap and tiresome, I think its perfiect for HITMAN.
    Why? Becuase players should feel at least a little bit of role playing... They shlould assume that 47 does not receive his contracts more often than once in a month. Moreover, there is plenty of content you should play with while waiting until next episode. Developers wanted you to explore every location - not to rush untile the ending cutscene.
