    Hitman 2 successfully builds upon the foundation IO Interactive laid in 2016. The sandbox structure of each map will surely facilitate several playthroughs before it gets stale. Meanwhile, new additions like Ghost Mode add multiplayer to the Hitman package. It's not perfect, but it's damn close.

    To be honest, Hitman is an eternal, few game franchises have ever used the same set of mechanics as successfully, and the focus on improving them has led them to this revamp, which makes assassination newer and fresher than ever. If you like Hitman, you will love this.

    All told, Hitman 2 is a heck of a treat for Hitman fans, offering the most refined mechanics, craziest antics, and most complex levels yet seen in the franchise. Each of the five core levels can be played for potentially a dozen or more hours, offering fantastic replayability for those who like to mess around with the Hitman formula. There’s an argument to be had that Hitman 2 plays it a little self, but when it’s so damned good, and unique, at what it does, you’ll hear little argument from me.

    Hitman 2 is a good stealth playground, although it missed some of its best chances to be a great game.

    This is HITMAN 2. A remarkable game and a sequel that is mainly aimed at those who played and loved the first game. On the contrary, those who did not get crazy from the previous adventure of the bald agent, will not do so now either.
  6. Hitman 2 is a good game. One of a kind. Enjoyable play with good level design.

    It's a solid expansion pack with all the merits and flaws of the original game. And for some reason it has "2" in the title.

    Excellent game, improves on the last installment in many ways. Massive amount of things to do if you want to complete all the challenges.

    Much more complete than the previous installment. The levels feel well thought out, complex enough and offer quite a bit of replayability. IMuch more complete than the previous installment. The levels feel well thought out, complex enough and offer quite a bit of replayability. I like the fact that the series is sticking to its roots, which is what most crybabies seem to complain about in this review section. In fact, these casual "gamers" would probably want stuff like driveable cars and jetpacks in the game just so they get "something new". For everyone else, 5 big new levels are good enough (although back in the day you'd get double that for the same amount of money). I also liked the difficulty, which is adjustable and offers quite a bit of a challenge when you turn it up to the maximum and disable instinct completely. What I didn't like was the intrusive anti-cheat, which is why I torrented the game (denuvo, lol) and played the pirated version before actually buying it. All in all, recommended. Expand

They got rid of the episodic releases, meaning you don't have to wait for the next part to come out to continue the story. Most players (like me) just waited for the original game to have a GOTY release, completely bypassing the episodic nature. Whilst episodic releases aren't a terrible idea, because some of us wanted to wait for the full game to be released, we missed out on a bunch of illusive targets that will never be seen again. Thankfully, IO Interactive has done away with that release style and has instead opted to just release the game normally.
    In terms of gameplay, it's almost identical to the first game. Animation work is still a little iffy, NPCs sway between over-competent and brain dead at the tip of a hat, but there's still a definite charm to dressing up as a giant pink flamingo and blowing up a race car.
    Graphically, the game can look quite nice. It won't blow anyone away, but the texture work is decent. On an artistic front, thinks look impressive. Areas are well realized with multiple detailed environments. It feels like there's something happening in every corner, much of which is intertwined in how you handle your assassination targets. This kind of extreme detail affords the game a huge amount of replay value. The game encourages exploration and lateral thinking, so it's great that the environments hold their own.
    Performance wise, it was above average for a AAA PC game at release (especially one published by Warner Bros. of all companies). My GTX 1070 ti and 16 gigs of ram were more than enough to run the game at maxed out settings at 3440x1440 (Ultrawide) Obviously mileage will vary, but I found its performance to be a pleasant surprise amidst a sea of frame dropping nightmares that has become the PC gaming industry of late.

The game has smooth movement, but lacks the newest in game mechanics and details. Graphics are good, it's about the same as the previous version. However, it’s a very expensive game, completed Hitman 2 within 4 hours, it contains only 6 new missions, but you can complete these missions in different ways, just like the previous Hitman. It feels more like an expansion than a new game to be honest, and one hell of an expensive one too if you want to buy the gold edition. Expand
