    Seriously, I don't think I can praise Hitman GO: Definitive Edition enough. It's perfectly suited to the Vita, and as I said, it makes me wish we had more cool little spinoffs like this one.

    It's tough, addictive, and offers a lot of content for the cost of admission. While not a traditional Hitman game, it's a smart entry into the franchise that I would encourage Vita owners especially to strongly consider.

    It is a solid puzzler, plays great on the handheld, and is very easy to consume in small bites if you're limited on time.

    Quietly confident and perfectly suited for Vita. [May 2016, p.94]

    Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is a brilliant puzzle/strategy game that sees the bald assassin make his debut on the PlayStation Vita. Although it may not appeal to everyone, those that do play it will find an enjoyable game that is entertaining yet challenging.

    Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is a neat little puzzling package that thoroughly entertains. Despite taking a different approach to gameplay, it very much remains a Hitman game.

    Melting Hitman down to its most basic format may sound like an awful idea. Taking away the thrills and frills of the traditional style shouldMelting Hitman down to its most basic format may sound like an awful idea. Taking away the thrills and frills of the traditional style should set alarm bells ringing, but it’s worked out beautifully. Hitman Go: Definitive Edition is a fresh take on a classic series.

    Originally developed and released for mobile phones, Hitman Go goes back to basics while taking a fresh approach. At its heart, Hitman Go is a exercise in pattern recognition and puzzle solving. Played out across several game boxes (each containing 15 boards), players attempt to guide 47 to the end of each area.

    Its turn-based piece by piece nature is similar to that of chess. Move the Agent 47 piece, enemy pieces move, repeat. Restricted to one turn per phase, players must observe and plan how where they will move next. The goal of each board is avoiding enemies and escaping the board. At times, boards will task the player with assassinating a target. These sections often require a touch more planning, acting like final challenges of their respected game box.

    The core format and gameplay is simple in nature. Each board has 15 stages, with later boards introducing more and more mechanics. Difficulty increases gradually, keeping the game’s gameplay both fresh and challenging. All of the additions are perfectly in tone with the Hitman franchise, oddly more than some of the recent main franchise entries.

    By the time outfits changes and trap doors appear, Hitman Go is has fully hits its stride. Simply getting to the end of board is no longer satisfying enough, completing every challenge is where the real glory is. Each board has various extra challenges, increasing the difficulty tenfold.

    Hitman Go features a wonderfully simplistic art style. Boards and pieces look like genuine true to life reflections of themselves. From the little details on the enemy pieces, to the set dressing, it all pops off the screen. The Playstation Vita’s screen is the perfect home for Go’s vibrant style. Basic and bare, but always beautiful, there’s very little to complain about in the looks department.

    For £6.49, the amount of content Hitman Go: Definitive Edition offers in impressive. The puzzles are challenging, constantly engaging the player’s interest. With over 91 boards to play, with two additional challenges on each board, it’s hard not to see Go as a bargain. Obviously puzzle based games aren’t for everyone, but given the low price point even a curiosity purchase is justifiable.

    Hitman Go is one of the best entries into the franchise in years. The Vita version runs and performs admirable thanks to fantastic visuals and fast loading speeds. Perfect for short blast, engaging during long stints, Hitman Go: Definitive Edition is a little gem worthy of both it’s price and your time.

    Square Enix luego del éxito de "Hitman Go" en celulares decidió portearlo a ambas consolas de Sony. Ésta versión de Hitman no es un juegoSquare Enix luego del éxito de "Hitman Go" en celulares decidió portearlo a ambas consolas de Sony. Ésta versión de Hitman no es un juego tradicional de la serie, sino un puzzle que se presenta como un juego de mesa en el cual tendremos que realizar asesinatos teniendo presente las mecánicas defensivas de los personajes enemigos.
    La jugabilidad es muy fácil de aprender, no se necesita de mucha habilidad para cumplir con los objetivos, pero las condiciones para obtener un puntaje superior genera una dificultad que se disfruta.
    En Vita el port deja mucho que desear, el juego tarda mucho en cargarse al inicio y para cambiar de capítulos, sin mencionar la poca responsabilidad de los controles. En general es jugable pero no es el mejor sistema para tenerlo. Suma al valor que al comprarlo en Vita o PS4 obtienes ambas versiones, además de Cross-Play.
