    Hitman GO is a great game that is a perfectly comfortable and enjoyable VR experience. At $10, it's an excellent value, especially if you haven't played the game before.

    This Definitive Edition is a great adaptation but it works better on devices with a touchscreen like the PS Vita. Still, the experience remains solid everywhere.

    Hitman GO: VR Edition really showcases the Gear VR and takes this tablet game to a whole new level with virtual reality!

    Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is a bold puzzle experience that takes the established franchise and simplifies its mechanics while retaining the complexity of the actual design. While its progression may not be all that great and some stages don’t leave a lot of room to experiment, the mechanics are easy to comprehend, and the challenges are still satisfying.

    This game has made a very successful transition to PC. Its levels are well-designed employing interesting mechanics that make it challenging, yet equally rewarding to play.

    This is an unusually high score for a game given a title containing the word "Hitman".
    The reason for this is that despite it not following the generally accepted format of it's predecessors (third person stealth/shooter), it's still a very good, nicely polished and really smooth game to play.
    It's kind of like nine men's morris, without the nine men - maybe (If you don't know what nine men's morris is, please do look it up....essentially it's a board game and that probably is all you really need to know on that front).
    The music is calming, the graphics are actually pretty good, and it may not be to everyone's liking but it'll tide anyone over looking for a little bit of a fix before the 2016 Hitman proper is released (which is pretty soon I think?).
    It's only about six quid on Steam right now, which makes it a fairly cheap game to buy considering it's not yet another hidden object game or yet another match three game or yet another combination of the two which is even more annoying.

    How about the gameplay though.

    It's fairly simple. It's turn based, you take a turn and all the other characters in the scenario you're playing through take a turn. It's NOT as easy as you might think it sounds. Some levels are fiendishly tricky to get through, and thankfully you can actually have the game walk you through the level if you're really stuck (and there's no time limits on those). There are various objectives to achieve (usually kill all the bad guys, collect the briefcase, and sometimes complete in x number of moves or less - generally), although you only need to technically 'pass' the level by completing it - by going to the exit point in a scenario, you will need to complete more of the objectives in order to unlock the next 'chapter' of scenarios. Again, if you've been stumped on any levels, you can just click on the lightbulb, click on the objective you want to complete, and it'll literally show you all the moves you need to make (whilst doing so in a monochrome setting, if you make a move it doesn't indicate throughout the walkthrough, the game goes back to full colour, and you're on your own again).

    It's fairly decent, it's not what you'd expect from the Hitman franchise - but it's very addictive after a while.

    Recommended if board games are your thing, also recommended if you just want to try something different out without having to look for missing objects or matching tiles.

    Good effort.

    Nothing like any of the other Hitman games you might have played. Simple enough game-play but didn't hit the fun spot for me.
