May 29, 2018Overall, this is the best version of Hitman you can get, as it is the complete version. This is especially nice, if you don’t own any of the prior content.
Nov 7, 2018Despite its flaws, Hitman: Definitive Edition is a solid installment in the Hitman franchise and serves as a quality introduction to a reboot of a classic title. The Definitive Edition is a great way for players to pass the time until Hitman 2 launches.
Jun 24, 2018Agent 47 is still killing it and he now has more ways to look stylish with three exclusive Definitive Edition outfits. However, if you already own the Game of the Year version then there really isn't much new to see here.
Jun 4, 2018Hitman is back, and this time more complete than ever before. With all the new content bundled with the core game, players get more action served. Sadly most technical flaws still remain, but overall the package succeeds.

Dec 17, 2018A super fun game with loads of replayability as the missions can be accomplished in many different ways.

Started with Hitman codename 47 on my old PC. I played all games about agent 47. This one is grate. Graphics is brilliant and looks great on PS4 Pro. I like that it’s possible to restart every level and play in many different ways. I finished the game, bit I’m sure I’ll come back to replay again. Now I play second season (Hitman 2) and I’m waiting for the final Hitman 3. Recommend to people who like stealth.… Expand

Dec 14, 2021Hitman seems a great franchise that I just discovered. I think most of the maps are really well crafted and polished. Graphics are certainlyHitman seems a great franchise that I just discovered. I think most of the maps are really well crafted and polished. Graphics are certainly above average here ! I found the game fun for the most part. However, here are a few problems with this game:
1) If you play Hitman like myself, it will be a short game for you (maybe 8 hours maximum). I don't replay the missions to complete the different challenges. Keep in mind that for the last map (Japan), only 9,5% of the players completed the main mission and less than 1% completed everything (I think it is even less than 0,5% accordong to PSN trophies) so I assume most players don't put a huge amount of hours in this game
2) If you do mistakes in the beginning of a mission, it can be hard to enjoy the rest of it as you'll be either compromized or pursued. It can encourage save scumming...
3) Story is weak
Overal, still a really good game and I'm looking forward to play a few bonus episodes and Hitman 2 and 3 in the future :)… Expand
Jul 2, 2020Hitman is a kind of reboot of a series of games about the adventures of an unnamed assassin, a departure from the heavy, fictional climate ofHitman is a kind of reboot of a series of games about the adventures of an unnamed assassin, a departure from the heavy, fictional climate of 'Absolution' and the long-awaited fulfillment of all fans' requests for the new production to return to its former tracks, to the roots of the series in the place where it left them, namely to the fourth part of the series which is entitled 'Hitman Blood Money'.
Every fan and enthusiast of the series will receive in the latest title everything that they know from 'Blood Money' only better, more, more interesting and transparent.
The story is again just the outer layer of the game and provides a complementary background without affecting the gameplay in any way.
Again, there will be 47 flying around the world, looking at new places, and in them with pleasure to murder the goals commissioned by the ICA.
The briefing known from 'Bloody Money' returns, in which 47 can again choose his equipment, which, along with the development of game progress, is enriched with new tools of murder.
The game is definitely more transparent and legible. Added to it are challenges to be achieved, places to explore, feats to perform, and special opportunities with which you can eliminate the goal in a sophisticated way.
Hitman is a hybrid of the last two titles of the Danish studio IO Interactive.
Proven solutions from 'Absolution' such as: instinct, hiding behind obstacles or suspicions of bystanders have been mixed with the gameplay model known from 'Blood Money' improving it and making it version 2.0.
However, you have to ask the question whether all the changes made are changes for the better - in my opinion not.
There is even a lack of effective intuitive shooting.
An interesting story layer that will absorb the player as in the case of 'Absolution'.
Graphically, Hitman is a game worse than the previous part. And they divide them, up to 4 years difference. Graphic models do not match the 2016 game standards - there has been a fairly serious regression in this respect.
Thanks to the new formula, the playability of the title has decreased, and it is more difficult for the user to feel the atmosphere of the game. In 7 locations only the last one - the medical center on the Japanese island of Hokkaido has treated me with its setting.
When we add to this the astronomical amount that the creators demanded for buying their product, the decision to buy it prompts more reflection.
In addition, at some stage of the game the potential viewer may get tired. The game is not as macabre colorful as its predecessor, and it looks neat, clean and elegant. There are few spectacular killings, and even they do not provide too much admiration.
There is "what to do" in the new Hitman. The content of the game is rich, I spent less than 70 hours myself, but the quality was hit at the expense of quantity.
If this part were released in 2012, immediately after 'Hitman: Blood Money', I would praise the title, appreciating its progress, because I can't think of anything but the term - Blood Money 2.0.
Exactly, just that the perfect Hitman Absolution appeared on the way, and comparing these three titles side by side, today this edition is the best part about the adventures of the nameless killer.
Final note: 7, good… Expand
