    Hitman 2 is a new coat of paint and an updated model of the previous year’s racing car. Sure, it may look similar to its predecessor, but it is improved in almost every facet of production, allowing the player to marvel in its familiar excellence.

    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.

    Hitman 2 is the perfect game for fans of the franchise that are looking for an excuse to dive back in. It doesn’t do much to improve on the original formula, but the original formula is still fun and exciting enough to carry the game when combined with IO Interactives attention to detail, level design, and NPC AI. The whole game feels like you’re wandering around living, breathing environments that are built to challenge your skills and creativity as an assassin, but that manages to do so in a way that feels fun and addicting even after multiple runs through the same level.

    Essentially more of its predecessor but with a more consistent quality of levels. Which is fine: its predecessor was great.

    Hitman 2 is a good stealth playground, although it missed some of its best chances to be a great game.
  6. Hitman 2 is a good game. One of a kind. Enjoyable play with good level design.

    Hitman 2 doesn’t add much of note to the structure of its predecessor and thus feels more like Hitman 1.5 than a full-blown sequel. But that’s not a bad thing. By offering more of the deepest, fullest stealth sandboxes in gaming in one single package rather than six episodic ones, it earns its keep. The inclusion of Hitman (2016) is a bonus for those that didn’t catch the reboot initially. Here’s hoping they put more effort into the plot next time.

    Best assassin simulator. Great, wide and interesting to explore locations, tons of weapons and ways to eliminate your targets, each levelBest assassin simulator. Great, wide and interesting to explore locations, tons of weapons and ways to eliminate your targets, each level tells a lot of stories, which actually is a part of game plot and lore. You want to replay each level again and again to find new secrets and complete challenges. Your creativity and fantasy are the only limits of how and what to do, and game awards your creativity with interesting situations and given opportunities. Must have for everyone.

    Clearly not 10, more like 7. Maybe 8. People are mad because it's just an expansion to the first game. I rate content here, and content deserves 8.

    Wouldn't buy it myself. After close to 2 hours of testing it didn't hook me and i refunded.

    But definitely the best Hitman so far.

    I miss the limited save feature based on difficulty to comeback. Couple of more missions would be better too.. not only six!
