It’s time to see how much better or worse the HITMAN franchise is getting with HITMAN 2. My first impression from configuring my controls ahead of time, the gameplay is pretty much the same but with better graphics. I’m fine with this as long as the content is there, but we’ll find out soon enough.
So HITMAN 2 feels more like HITMAN 1.5 in terms of only having minor improvements, consistent mechanics and additional content. But it keeps everything that we know and love about Hitman and solidifies how the game looks and feels. I still hope that there is something new to be introduced somewhere in the middle or even the end of the game for replay value and for fun, but I wouldn’t be surprised if what we’ve seen is all we’ve got.
