Hitman 2’s release date is almost here. PS4, Xbox One and the PC sequel continue the first game’s trend of inventive killings, all of which are located in exotic locations around the world.

GamesSpot – – 8/10

“Hitman is about to experience whether a plan will work as you try it for the first time. It’s about feeling the excitement of moving away quickly from a bad situation in the hope that you can lose the suspicious guards. It’s the pleasure to feel the angles at one level so good that when a goal moves Hitman 2 is a well-known experience, but in the Hitman world, it is incredible. “- Edmond Tran [Full review]

IGN – 7.7 / 10

“Hitman 2 does not add much to the structure of its predecessor, and thus feels more like Hitman 1.5 than a full-blooded sequel. It’s not bad. By offering more of the deepest, coolest stealth sandboxes in play in a single package instead of six e pisodiska, it’s worth it. Including Hitman (2016) is a bonus for those untrapped reboots. Here they hope they will make more effort in the plot next time. “- Ryan McCaffrey [Full review]

Kotaku – No Points

” Hitman 2 takes what its predecessor did best and improves it visually and mechanically. It’s a brain game, a sandbox that can be bloodless or chaotic depending on Hitman 2 is an investigation of both 47’s unique and the way in which he’s just another face in the audience. Playing with this conflict is what makes Hitman games so fun and Hitman 2 gives you more space, tools and rewards to fully explore this. Character and plot pale in comparison to what you can do, and Hitman 2 offers a fascinating buffet of accidents to choose from. “- Riley MacLeod [Full review]

Eurogamer – No Points

” Hitman 2 is not the landmark the last game was, and since it almost did not happen at all, with IO wresting back the rights of Square Enix in the eleventh hour, it just wait. It does not take us anywhere drastically unfamiliar with Hitman – all maps have predecessors in older games and for all the many minor tweaks that NPCs aim for you in mirrors or image-in-images of people you’ve successfully distracted, the rhythms are exactly the ones for the 2016 excursion. However, there is a lot to go back to on each map, however, from trump politicians to slowly unlock repertoires of subtle or more grandiose strategies and in Ghost, at least the proposal about a series that turns a new magazine. I hope I have the chance to follow through, because Hitman is still one of the smartest stealth experiences out there and really a game for uneven times – a window on society in which spoiled electricity it always gets what comes to them, with justice or ugly. “- Edwin Evans-Thirlwell [Full review]

GamesRadar + – 3.5 / 5

” There’s definitely no innovation here, it’s more of the same Hitman game as we’ve seen several years before and I’m afraid to Hitman 2 comes to a time when it just can not compete with Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Fallout 76, especially in the open world sandbox genre. In addition, there are definitely odds for the presentation of Hitman 2, which suggests that it was a bit rushed out the door, but I can not fault the fact that it offers delicious, murderous fun right from the download. And that’s really all you need from Hitman 2. “- Sam Loveridge [Full review]

USGamer – 4.5 / 5

” Everything in Hitman 2 can be overwhelming at first redemption. What’s happening at the launch is also not the last of Hitman 2, with Exclusive Hits hits, the first star actor Sean Bean) and more on his way to the sneaky sandal. For now I want to let you prepare. “- Caty McCarthy [Full review]

PC Gamer – 84/100

” When 2016 Hitman was announced as episodically, I was confused but also excited by the idea of ​​constantly expanding space for new Hitman levels By being so much As its predecessor, Hitman 2 is set to meet the original target. When it’s ready with the extra Legacy Pack – which is free to owner of the 2016s Hitman – that adds to the previous game levels, Hitman 2 sets itself as the essential platform for entertaining murder puzzles. “- Phil Savage [Full review]
