HITMAN didn’t disappoint me at all.
The thing is, Hitman is my favourite game series, and we hadn’t got a good Hitman game since Bloody Money in 2006. That’s a decade. 10 years. A 3rd of my entire life.
And finally when this game did arrive, it had some of the best designed levels ever. If people don’t have at least one of the 2016 levels in their personal top 10s I’d be surprised. It would surprise me less if they had 2-3.
Are there issues with HITMAN? Of course. But I can’t think of a single Hitman game that doesnt.
After a decade of awaiting (and Absolution in the middle, like a bit of rancid meat in a burger) i’d given up hope of a new Hitman game in he vein of Contracts or Blood Money, and we got it. And all with missions that vary from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ to ‘Masterpiece’
The only thing I would say is disappointing are he constant medalling with mechanics and the fact that everyone who bought the game on day 1 are essentially beta testers. And always having to be online.
Does that take away from me getting Hitman back?..not at all.
