Hitman (2016) Best Hitman Ever ?
Written by: tsalito - 11:33 Sep-01-2017

                 As you might know I am a huge Hitman fan. My first ever blog was a blog for Hitman:Absolution, even if Absolution let me down. I own every single Hitman and I am really pround of it. I bought the latest Hitman entry during the Steam Summer Sales for only 18 Euros and it included the five episodes plus a couple of Bonus Missions, and boy was that a worthy purchase.

                 If you didnt like the game stop reading now cause I am going to praise it for the rest of the blog. To be honest with you Absolution was a huge disappointment for the fans. I am not goin to say it was a bad game, I am just goin to say that  it was a mediocre Hitman game. It basically took away all the elements that made Hitman great to begin with. It had a couple of assassinations and that was it, now someone might say "that was a more personal story" but hey they could have put some more assassinations in there instead of just trying to escape unseen from a level.

                 Another thing that Absolution didn't get right were the disguises. The concept was that every one that wore the same outfit as you could see through your disguise unless you were using instinct. Suffice to say I want to kill the person that went one day into they office and said "Hey I got this crazy Idea". It was so annoying it made wearing a disguise completely useless and it felt as a chore aswell. I completed the entire game with my suit cause it was pretty much the same thing, that system was the worst system in the entire game if not series and it got only worse as you tried higher difficulties.

                 But, lets get to the game in question the ultimate Hitman experience you can have. Now a disclaimer I have only palyed the first two episodes and if you look at my steam page you are goin to see that I have been playing them for 64 hours. Yes that is right this game has so much gameplay that I've been playing for 64 hours and yet I am at the second level. To be honest if you are not a completionist you could probably finish the game in a few hours, but for me the guy who wants to complete every single challenge and feat it has so much content.

                First of all you get your standard Hitman missions, large sandbox mission that offer multiple approaches to a kill, the world feels so immersive and so alive especially the Sapienza level. The level design is simply amazing, the best of the series by far and maybe amongst the best level designs ever. I am still enjoying these maps even after playing them 20 times each, and that is because every time you hear a story or find a different path or paly with a different style that you hadnt played before.

               Then you get the new disguise system. They have modified the absolution mechanic, thank god they have cause that would have ruined the entire game for me. This time there only but a few people on the map that can see thrugh your disguise and to be honest I think that makes it more realistic than Absolution but most important it makes it more fun to play. You also get a difficulty called Professional which is sort of like purist mode in Absolution but in my opinion professional is ten times better. In professional mode the levels get altered, items are now harder to find and most of the time you have to subdue someone to obtain them, the Npcs have different places and routes and the combat is absolutely barbaric. 

                Another star in Hitman, is the escalation mission, every major mission has a dozen of them and each escalation has five levels and each level adds another clause to finish the mission, it is very exciting and very interesting and it as a lot of content for someone that wants to complete everything.

               And there you have it that was all I love about Hitman (2016). I think it is masivelly underrated and it saddens me to see IO interactive get cut off from Square Enix. I do hope that they keep up doing great work just like they did with Hitman and I wish them the best of luck with their future endeavors. Untill next time.

I still like blood money best, but Hitman 2016 is amazing as well, definitely one of the best in the series, I'd put it after blood money and silent assassin.

You played 64 hours!!! Man!
--SPOILERS--
First level. I disguised myself as Kruger (or whatever that model was called). I assassinated the lady like an assassin, i.e. quitely in her cabin. The "guy". I followed him like for 10-15 minutes. Got bored. Shot him in the face in front of everybody and ran out like hell.
Best 30 minutes of assassination ever. Even though a sloppy one.
The first training mission was stupid. I killed the guy on second attempt without even boarding the yatch.
---SPOILERS END---
I played the original hitman a long time ago. It was fun.
