    Hitman is unquestionably the finest game in the series. It might be one of the best stealth games ever made.

    Season 1 delivered near flawlessly. IO Interactive has built a framework that they can keep building on for years to come here, and we can’t wait to dive back into more missions in season 2.

    IO Interactive's new, episodic Hitman is a triumph. The developer knew how to revive its ailing series and did so with aplomb, crafting a robust set of core mechanics and designing superb levels around them. Reminiscent of everything Blood Money did so well, from its focus on gameplay over story to its cold, sardonic presentation and dark sense of humour, this is Hitman as it is and always should be.

    Hitman: The Complete First Season is the perfect re-introduction to the third-person stealth franchise, bringing back sandbox game design and player choice to the forefront with six expertly hand-crafted missions with hundreds of opportunities and ways to approach killing targets, and a ton of side content in the form of Escalation contracts and the Sarajevo Six (effectively “What If?” scenarios and missions).

    The first season offers a classic but at the same time new take on the Hitman experience. It asks for every mission to be replayed and rediscovered, and we've enjoyed it thanks to its diversity and possibilities.

    With Hitman: The Complete First Season, IO Interactive has successfully managed to take the series back to its roots with style, making it a must-have for stealth fans yet to savour its delights.

    Agent 47’s ultimate skill has always been patience, and the newest Hitman demands the same from the player more than ever before. Some may enjoy devoting hours to planning and pulling off the perfect hit, but the supersized levels have made 47’s latest adventure an overly drawn-out affair, above and beyond the initial episodic release schedule.

    Such a masterpiece. While I can get some of the anger because of the episodic style of release I fell as if this payed off as this has madeSuch a masterpiece. While I can get some of the anger because of the episodic style of release I fell as if this payed off as this has made for one of the best stealth games in recent memory as there is show much packed into it despite it only being the first season of this game with the big open levels and the fact that you can do it in which ever way you like makes it on of the most replayable games I have touched this generation and the presentation is very well done with episode 2 being one of the best missions I have played in a game. If you love stealth and action games you need to at least give this a chance. Expand

I honestlyI was very hesitant about the episode scheme they brought to this game but I can say one thing.. IO and Square Enix perfected this. I honestly think this is how the Hitman series should be moving forward. The replay-ability on this is incredible. With all the games coming out and the amount on backlog, it's tough to get through it 100% but is definitely something I would pick up again. Expand

    Pros:
    - Really felt like I was in the atmosphere and it was intense when I thought I was going to get caught
    - Multiple ways to solve missions

    Cons:
    - Not sure I enjoy the concept of repeating missions in different ways 5 times. Maybe two but the game is sort of based on mastering.
    - Felt like I did more searching then cool stealth stuff, I guess I enjoy stealth games were I take out several people versus pure sneaking
    - Always online game
