    Hitman GO is fantastic no matter what platform you choose to play it on. Unlike some other games it actually understands what Hitman is about and stays true to that formula while giving us something unique.

    Hitman GO is just as good on PlayStation as it was on iOS and Android, and the updated visuals and amount of content at a great price that the Definitive Edition offers will keep you coming back for more and more.

    Either way, Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is well worth the plunge, even at its current asking price. Although the cost has been inflated, you’d be hard-pressed to find a puzzle game of this calibre on PSN or Steam for just over a fiver.

    A good mix of puzzle and turn-based strategy also recommended to those unfamiliar with the Agent 47. And as they say in these cases: so cheap, so satisfying.

    Hitman Go is a unique take on the long-running Hitman franchise, breaking down the series to its core mechanics and delivering an enjoyable adventure.

    Hitman GO is a unique spin to a franchise and feels like the perfect combination of puzzle and strategy game, especially in quick bursts. I can only handle so much in one sitting, but every time I do play, I find myself sucked in just a little bit more.

    A well-designed and enjoyable puzzler. However, control issues, repetitive music and a lack of tactical freedom mean it's unlikely you'd choose to play this over real Hitman on your console.

Anyone can pick this up and start solving the puzzles with reality ease, until the difficulty ramps up. The difficulty never jumps substantially but rather incrementally so you can learn new tactics. Quick yet rewarding platinum trophy. Expand

    Of course the premise is limiting. You have a mobile port with added trophies. HOWEVER Square Enix managed to present this game as anOf course the premise is limiting. You have a mobile port with added trophies. HOWEVER Square Enix managed to present this game as an exquisite collection of 'puzzle boards'. Each level looks like a physical, tangible object with characters looking like real pieces. The graphics are perfect for what the game is. Even the time spent between levels can leave an impression of tangibility and class. You can actually look at the level selection screen and notice the 'storyline' of Agent 47 moving through a city or a place towards his target, across the many steps involved in the larger location. This is an ingenious way to present the puzzles. Everything in Hitman GO comes together for an elegant whole.

    Gameplay is top notch. There is a minimum of repetition, and thus mostly fresh-feeling challenges constantly every time a new board is loaded. New puzzle pieces are frequently introduced, and by the campaign's end, a map can look more or less like a chess board, with the many rules involved for each enemy type. It's been years since I enjoyed long puzzle game sessions this much.

    Each level has a few 'challenge conditions' for beating it, for example "No kills" or "Collect protected item". These provide enough replay value and challenge to really max out the game's potential value. I had some of my favorite moments of playing the game while I pondered and tested various strategies for completing under special conditions. I found that many of the puzzles gained extra puzzle depth from this.

    Basically, yes this is Hitman done right, and puzzles done right. Original concept means I feel generous and give a 9/10.

    I must admit that I was a little unsure when I heard that the Hitman series was coming to iOS (it has subsequently been ported to PC andI must admit that I was a little unsure when I heard that the Hitman series was coming to iOS (it has subsequently been ported to PC and Sony's consoles) but Square Enix have made a fantastic job of it. Taking the stealth series and turning it into a puzzle game was seen by many as a strange direction to take but it works an absolute treat here. As well as crafting a genuinely enjoyable puzzle game they have also managed to make great use of the license and actually retain the feel and atmosphere of the Hitman games, and the board game style presentation only adds to the appeal.

    With its short levels and quick restarts (should you fail) Hitman: Go is absolutely perfect for on the go gaming but it is also a good enough game in its own right to make it worth playing even on your home console.

    An interesting little puzzle game that isn't anything special and a bit overpriced. 63/100
