    Episode 4 is set in exotic Thailand, offering us two targets, a huge hotel map and of course, plenty of ways to plan the perfect assassination. With what we have on our hands so far, IO Interactive has convinced us that we are to get a true and worthy successor to Blood Money. We are eager to see what they have under their sleeves for the remaining episodes.

    Episode 4 is another terrific addition to Agent 47’s latest. After a less spectacular stay in Marrakesh and a fairly limited detour in the Summer Bonus Episode, Bangkok provides another terrific level for further murderous possibilities, and one I can’t wait to revisit as more targets make their unfortunate lodgings at the resort.

    A beautiful return to form for 47 after his Moroccan adventure failed to impress too much. Bangkok offers a tight, focused level with plenty to do, which differentiates it from the missions of the last few months - and it's really well-designed to boot.

    More good Hitman, although the repetition of style and presentation is taking the shine off the experience.

    Episode 4 might ultimately be more of the same, but this year’s episodic Hitman is the best the series has ever been, and I’m not complaining. However, with the United States and Japan chapters still to come before this season ends, I do hope IO Interactive has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

    47's journey in Bangkok sees him in a wonderful and beautifully realized scenery, but the hotel feels (and actually is) small and is far from Sapienza's grandeur in level design.

  1. I only wish that one day, long after this incarnation, there’ll be a Hitman game with true narrative consequence, where a breadcrumb trail of slip-ups might lead the police or some other organisation straight to my door, while another player might produce such smooth and clean “accidents” that no such fate awaits them. That player – the silent assassin – will leave through their front door and disappear. Whereas I’ll try and climb out my window and get shot in the back.

If you played previous episodes you won't be surprised, again two targets to kill with plenty of different opportunities to do so and a lot of challenges to complete and level up. The fact that Chinese people speak in an american accent English annoys as much as it did in previous episodes, and there are some bugs, but still it's a very enjoyable episode and better than the previous one.

    Hitman Bangkok
    The weakest hitman episode yet…
    In terms of the overall story arch, this is a great episode... but in terms of actual gameplay, this is the weakest weve seen in these episodic hitman releases...
    In this episode your targets are a young recording artist who may or may not have killed a young actress as well as his family attorney…
    The map feels alive much better than the last episode… but there’s just so little to do and see this time around…
    This was probably the easiest hit yet only taking me about 45 minutes to complete…
    But within a brief window of about 5 minutes I felt like I’ve scoped the entire place out
    It takes place in one hotel that feels way too compact compared to what the series has had us used to.. And this is the place where this kid is celebrating his 27th birthday
    so you get to crash his party any way you see fit,
    I personally chose to just poising the whole place and bounce…
    This is the first time playing a hitman episode that my mind wasn’t racing… where I didn’t feel like I had to plan…
    I’m feeling stronger than ever that an episodic release of this series was a mistake as I’m sure had this product been released as a whole, this map wouldn’t bother me as much as it does.
    I give Hitman Bangkok a
    5/10
