There aren’t any missions that could dethrone the top 3 of Hitman Season 1, but instead what we get is a solid assortment that will leave you wanting more. We may not get as many highs, but at least we get fewer lows. It’s also a shame that this is still bogged down with online connectivity requirements, something that’s to the game’s detriment. Even with its share of issues, Hitman 2 hits it mark, creating an addictive, overly-ambitious sequel.
The game encourages players to “master” each level, complete challenges, do all the story missions, and come with new ways to approach these situations. You are rewarded with new starting points, items, and other useful trinkets and perks. Unlike most games that are dense with content, I actually want to take advantage of it all, rather than quickly getting through the story through brute force and never stopping to smell the roses like I do in many open-world games currently on the market.
Levels are gorgeous and brimming with choices. Strong gameplay mechanics. New mechanical additions work well. New modes are fun and add variety. Systems balances allowing you to explore with creating a believable world. Elusive Targets are back. Silly, campy story. Hitman 2 is an excellent sequel full of opportunities that combines the best aspects of its predecessor with strong new additions to put 47's abilities to the test.
