    It’s serious if they want it to be serious, but it’s also incredibly silly if you’re in the mood for that. Which ever way you choose to play it, though, it’s consistently fun, and that makes Hitman 2 well worth checking out.

    Hitman 2 is possibly the best version of this darkly comic murder simulator we’ve seen in quite some time.

    It might not propel the series forward by leaps and bounds, but it takes small meaningful steps that improve the formula nonetheless.

    With Hitman 2, IO Interactive didn’t take much risk. The team simply and smartly refined its formula, rubbing away some of the first game’s flaws. And it works: Hitman 2 is a generous and fun game.

    Hitman 2 complies with what is expected of a sequel: greater and better content. IO Interactive does not try to revolutionize its formula, simply presents more killing opportunities on each map.

    Hitman 2 feels like a slightly improved content pack over the previous game, with new missions and locations but not enough innovation or meaningful changes in gameplay. If you liked the previous game, though, it won't disappoint you providing many hours in its quality stealth sandbox experience.

    Hitman 2 doesn’t add much of note to the structure of its predecessor and thus feels more like Hitman 1.5 than a full-blown sequel. But that’s not a bad thing. By offering more of the deepest, fullest stealth sandboxes in gaming in one single package rather than six episodic ones, it earns its keep. The inclusion of Hitman (2016) is a bonus for those that didn’t catch the reboot initially. Here’s hoping they put more effort into the plot next time.

    Hitman isn't for everybody, if you didn't enjoy the first season then you're definitely not going to enjoy this one. However if like me youHitman isn't for everybody, if you didn't enjoy the first season then you're definitely not going to enjoy this one. However if like me you absolutely loved the first season then you're going to love this one even more. It's essentially the same amazing gameplay from season one but now there are six huge brand new levels to explore and murder people in. However this time, better attention has been paid to level design and the levels are more consistent in quality, whereas in the first some levels were great but others were lacking. If you love Hitman then this developer deserves all your support. They're one of the few developers left who make game like this. Buy this game, it's worth it. Expand

Clearly, they do not realize that IO Interactive has concocted a pure masterpiece.

    The only complaint I have at all is the cutscenes, but seeing as they were made by Square Enix (whom IO Interactive recently broke up with), it is an acceptable sacrifice.

    Each level has been crafted masterfully, with several secrets to uncover and many unique ways to manipulate the NPCs around you.

    This game is a definitive improvement on the already rock solid Hitman 2016. With those levels being offered as an expansion pack for Hitman 2, it is clear to see just how much improvement has been made (My favorite being that the player is able to use any unlock in any difficulty setting, such as being able to start Marrakesh on Master difficulty in the consulate parking garage)

    I am presently grinding the legacy pack, but from what I have played of the Hitman 2 maps, they are all very expansive (apart from New Zealand). It nearly feels impossible to put into words just how massive these maps are (not in a bad way, albeit it does feel like a grind going from point a to point b at times).

    If you were a fan of Absolution, that was a mistake IO Interactive learned a huge lesson from (not to say Absolution is a bad game, but it is a major deviance from what Hitman is all about).

    IO Interactive deserves your support.

There are some "quality of life" changes that make the missions more "enjoyable" and smoother somewhat.
    What is a shame is the integration of Hitman 1, the idea is great, the result is a complete mess. I don't want to redo the same achievements I already took hours to unlock previously, there's some more work to do here.

When you put the disc in it won't allow you to play anything. It tells you that you don't have the required content and to go to the store, but when you go to the store it tells you that you own the game and that it is installed ready to play!? After 30 minutes back and forth trying to work it out i finally discovered that you have to find each individual mission and download each one individually!! It doesn't even tell you this! To make things worse i can only select some of the missions to download them. For some bizarre reason it won't allow me to select certain missions of the main game to download. And because you have to search for each mission on the store and download them individually it meant i had to search online for what missions the game has so i knew exactly what missions i was looking for! IOI Interactive has done some really silly things in its time but this one really does take the cake. They have a bizarre habit of making things unnecessarily complicated for themselves and for their fans. Like how Season 1 had about 3 or 4 different release models as they kept scrapping and changing them and confusing everyone. It's as if they enjoy annoying us or something. Expand
