    Hitman is arguably a pinnacle for the series, possibly even eclipsing Blood Money as Agent 47's finest moment. Each episode is a sandbox that you don't simply play and then forget. You'll want to master it and discover all of its hidden secrets and nuances. And therein lies Hitman's innate brilliance. It's deep, expansive and open-ended enough that you'll never want to stop playing. Hitman is quite simply magnificent.

    Introducing a new depth of variety and replayability to its sandboxes, Hitman's experiences are now more enjoyable and fulfilling than ever before. Although this can lead to a short experience for some, the content on offer is some of the highest quality since the game's conception.

    Consistently brilliant - the best Hitman game, and one of the best games of the year. [Jan 2017, p.84]

    Delayed gratification from the episodic release schedule or not, this 2016 take on Hitman is a brilliant game. Expansive level design and nearly unlimited replay value courtesy of so many routes to your assassinations (and so many methods with which to carry them out) make the experience almost completely different each and every time you play. Yes, Agent 47 took his time getting here, but it was time well spent.

    The story is great but it’s not as rich as other games.

There are many spectacular ways to kill the targets, but you can also make your own plan, stealth and kill them breaking their necks, which is more satysfying then follow the possibilities (you can also turn them off and find them by yourself). The locations are very big and unical and their are many humans there. The "AI" is much better, than in the most stealth games and the NPCs behave realistic, altough their are many factors that influence them. The game is very original, becouse teir aren't many games that let you pretend you were just a civilist or anyone else if you have his cloths and kill very importent people completing seemingly impossible missions without anybody notice it and let you thing you are the smartest person inthe location.

    Weak points (Single player only):
    - I finish this game on hard difficulty, but it didn't challenge me enough to complete it, also this title has a short storyline if we judge about the main campaign, not extra downloadable contents.

    The Hitman series (And in all honestly stealth based games of any sort) were never my thing but I have fallen in love with Hitman. The game controls beautifully, it's responsive and nuanced without tipping into the point of becoming over complicated. The in game graphics do great justice to the maps created, another huge bonus point for me as I was pleasantly surprised by just how big and detailed each of the maps were. I've seen people complain about them being contrived and simplified but with what feels like hundreds of random NPCs and a multitude of mission significant characters (targets, guards, various staffs etc.) it makes each environment feel alive and organic.The story (at least what I've played of it thus far) is interesting and engaging and I was all caught up on the significance of the events portrayed just through some light reading and questions to a friend who is an avid Hitman fan.

    My biggest plus of the whole thing is I think it really nails the freedom to experiment in the game. I understand that this is an integral feature of the Hitman series but this game seems to really come on leaps and bounds with it. Too many games spoon feed you information and hold your hand from start to finish but at worst this game leads you to an easy path to completion through some minimal exploring that in the end will not result in the most satisfying of assassinations. At best it will drop you in the middle of a map with little more than your targets names and let you run with it and I adore that. I am only part way through the story but have found myself repeatedly returning to the same few levels to try different methods time and again or even just trying to correct mistakes I made in previous runs.

    With the live contracts and the variation it creates in the maps I can see myself having endless fun with this game. The assassination of the two burglars from Home Alone that went live recently not only entertained me on gimmick alone but in pursuing different targets that behave wildly different from the primary targets on the same level I stumbled upon details that allowed me to open up different paths or approaches upon replaying the original level.

    As I said I feel like with my lack of prior experience of Hitman games, the reduced cost of the game and my purchasing it at the time of it being fully released and mostly fixed I have lucked into the optimal experience of this game but I do not at all feel like that diminishes the experience at all. This game has turned me into someone who will be looking to play through as much of the previous installments as possible as well as eagerly awaiting what comes next from the series.

However, this season and episodic release style is horrendous. Basically play then wait for new episode, such a buzzkill. Since when did gaming turning into a television series. Terrible idea, just release the game as a whole then do DLC. If more games do this, I will not buy, its absurd. Expand

It's true that the developers did a huge effort creating every level and wanted the players to experiment all the possibilities they have. However, i think selling it by episodes was a mistake anyways.
    This game is perfectly designed in everything. The AI is pretty smart, the locations are great and are very different from each others, and all the possible interactions availables in each level are formidable. It's clear by far that they worked a lot in this game; and they did a great job, the result is really satisfying.
    What makes this game different in the stealth genre is the freedom it gives you. There is a huge amount of possible ways to perform and kill your targets. You can track some opportunities that are revealed as you explore the map and take advantage of them, or just do it by your own. In addition, there are many challenges to do, and you'll have to play each mission more than once if you want to complete them all; what makes it more replayable.

    only 6 missions and chopped up in tidbits here and there. Also purchased the game new at launch, but no longer have access to single playeronly 6 missions and chopped up in tidbits here and there. Also purchased the game new at launch, but no longer have access to single player campaign unless I rebuy "game of the year" addition. So I can freeplay all 6 missions but cant play the cinematic storyline unless I shell out another $50?! what a lame business model! *deleted off hard drive* *avoiding any and all future games of Square Enix*.
