HITMAN 2 Reviews; Link any you find (Read OP first)


#1

Shouldn’t be long until the reviews start dropping - early access is tomorrow after all! Any reviews you find, from big names or small sites, are welcome in this thread for easy archival and search purposes :slight_smile:

If you find an interesting review that is in a language other than English, feel free to link it but please provide translation of the most relevant excerpts! I will try and compile every review posted and list them by score/website/date/whatever in this Opening Post.

Famitsu scored it a 9/9/9/9 - 36/40.


#4

Better score than the given to H2016

Update 11/07/18 at 2:55 p.m.: Our source wrongly reported the Hitman 2 score. It was scored 9/9/9/9 for a total of 36 out of 40, not the previously reported 8/8/8/8 for a total of 32 out of 40.

Just saying but Famitsu is a terribly unreliable source for reviews. They gave many terrible titles including Resident Evil 6 high scores.

Just wait for a good deal of reviews to drop in and then decide. Otherwise it’s going to be a Batman vs Superman case or like Suicide Squad where the earliest reviews were very positive and then when most reviews started to roll in later, it painted a totally different picture.

Even if it’s mixed, it’s mixed leaning positive so that’s a bright note.

What a terrible review lol. You can tell that that guy is utterly trash at the game


#17

It doesn’t matter what IGN says. I personally can’t wait still for Hitman 2 to release.

“Many gamers felt the episodic model did not work for HITMAN”

Many dumbasses you mean.
