    A beautifully executed stealth game. [May 2016, p.76]

    This first taste of Hitman's new path offers us one of the best locations in the series, with lots of freedom and many environments to explore. A promising new start, even if the overall story is just barely hinted at; we'll have to wait for the next chapters to see if it's got a great plot too.

    Overall, Hitman shows a lot of promise for the future, but unless the prospect of saving £3.98 right now seems thrilling to you, buying The Full Experience is a bit silly at this point.

    Hitman tries an interesting balance of stuffing a lot into a little, but doesn’t exactly pull it off with elegance.

    The gameplay itself is engaging and invigorating, perfectly capturing the tone of previous entries in the series. The current package is significantly lacking, but regarding gameplay, Hitman is shaping up to be one of the best games to date. Sadly numerous performance issues hinder the game's potential, but never affect gameplay in a significant way.

    All in all, Hitman is a very promising start to the reboot series.

    This is a solid start for IO, but it still needs to do a lot to convince us that this release model has more worth to the player than the traditional ‘release a finished game’ method we’ve grown to love and appreciate.

From the very first tutorial, I was blown away at the amount of options the game presents to the player. The levels are very cleverly designed and offer great replay value. I also am grateful the hints can be moderated or turned completely off (I am one of those players that finds more joy in figuring things out themselves). As far as controls and animations go - they are on par with other third-person games I have played, but there's nothing too special about that aspect of Hitman. My only complains with the game are that the AI is a bit weak (easy to trick) and sometimes the gameplay feels entirely based on trial-and-error. Other than these things, Hitman is a wonderful sandbox puzzle assassination game that I will be enjoying for a while. Expand

    I recommend you wait until 2017 and buy the full game. As it stands you can choose the Intro Pack, or buy the Intro Pack/Upgrade and Hitman. II recommend you wait until 2017 and buy the full game. As it stands you can choose the Intro Pack, or buy the Intro Pack/Upgrade and Hitman. I did the latter. Essentially Intro is 3 missions, Upgrade is some new looks. And Hitman is the season pass. It has typical Hitman game play, but it has it's issues.

    1. You have to be online to play. That means XB1 Live, then Square Enix servers. SE servers are down as I write this review. I think this is a bad policy for what is essentially a single player game.
    2. This is not what I call a full game release. I paid full price for it. Granted they will release more content, which I won't have to pay for later. But there wasn't enough meat here for me to even remember the game in April. When it's next installation comes out.
    3. It is buggy. When I reloaded after a mistake it got lagged out , and this happened several times. It also froze and forced me to reboot during one of it's many long loading screens.
    4. It doesn't have difficulty settings. I am a casual and it felt tough for me. But I imagine a great FPS person would be bored. I need easy. They need hardcore.

    It's not all bad though. They are releasing new things every couple of months? They have contracts you can create for other players. Basically it seems you play through the 3 missions, mark targets and players can try out your mission. It looks like they will have other features. Probably a PVP thing from the looks of it. Thus the reason they are probably forcing you to be always online. But for my money it's not worth the $64 bucks after taxes I paid. If you buy just the intro you'll probably be more happy. But I can't imagine it will take most more than a day to master everything.

    I thought Square Enix would release a full featured Hitman game, and to keep us busy would release regular DLC with new missions. But this is just 3 missions. Most will be done in a day or 2. And Hitman will be collecting dust until April. When you will probably play a day or 2 and then wait for another month or 2. So essentially you will be paying to have them continue development of the game. And the full experience won't be there until sometime next year. Wait until then. If you buy it now, you will probably feel ripped off. It's only the future content that kept me from giving this game a 3 or less.

Having said that, the Intro Pack which technically is only one slice of complete game delivers engaging game-play that invites to revisit each level and play differently each time. While episodic nature of this game is a major turn-off, this little "slice" of game is not bad at all. It may feel dated in 2016 because of animation and graphics but it delivers on the promise to play and become a deadly hero. I don't think that developers wanted us to carry to much about story, plot and reason to assassinate your targets but they hope for you to keep replaying this game over and over again. I've got bored about 2 different plays but I am definitively exited to see what the next "episode" will bring.
    In summary, I would like to stress that this form of releasing game shows poor decision on publisher on many levels.

Useless pile of junk sold in episodes to make money. No creativity ,no respect for old school hitman fans. I pray other companies like R* ,Ubi dont follow this terrible format of episodic gaming . I have never seen such terrible AI in any hitman game other than this episodic junk. Hell lot of technical glitches. Not even worth pirating. Stay Away. Save your money for Good. Expand
