Hitman: The Complete First Season Review
Hitman finally got all of its episodes and missions thrown into the brand new reboot that follows the story of the world’s greatest assassin, Agent 47. Each mission has you doing something new in a brand new location, although for the most part, it’s going to result in you having to kill someone; what with Agent 47 being a world renowned assassin and all.
The game plays a lot like your typical 3rd person shooter, but with a heavier emphasis on stealth and keeping behind cover. Instead of killing every single guard that is in your way to the target, you can knock out a nearby delivery driver, take his clothes from him and sneak in through the front entrance in broad daylight. Every single mission can be solved in a different way, meaning that you replay this game a number of times and still find a new way to win.
A great positive for the game is the fact that it’s taken the Hitman formula and rebooted it for the modern day, while still pleasing fans of the original games to make a great new Hitman game. Even though there are a lot of ways to play through your missions, there are certain missions that feel as if they don’t have much overall choice, which is an issue in a game such as this. Despite this, the first season of Hitman is a great game that new and returning players to the franchise can quite easily get behind.
