Sometimes, all you need at the end of the day is an old-fashioned toilet assassination.
IO Interactive's follow up to their HITMAN reboot, having been released in a staggered fashion like most blockbuster games hits year, has been fully released for the last couple of weeks. We covered it earlier this month, with Riley finding that the 10th Hitman game featured some cracking locations and opportunities.
Hitman series protagonist Agent 47 isn’t an interesting guy. Despite his gleaming, barcoded head, he disappears into a crowd. He can somehow pass for anyone, no matter how famous; he can seamlessly live their life and look great in their pants. He uses this ability to wreak havoc everywhere he goes. Hitman 2 investigates this, asking who 47 is and why he does what he does, and the game answers this best not with its cutscenes but through its gameplay: because he —and the player — can, because they both have a keen eye for everything that can go wrong.
Users so far have praised the game's levels, expanded interactions and methods of assassination, performance, dynamic game world and the inclusion of levels from the original HITMAN in HITMAN 2.
