Hitman GO is designed to be a temporary go-to for those times you’re stuck in minor delays, like a doctor’s appointment when you’ve arrived early, not the DMV or anything crazy. It’ll do the trick, but aside from the lovely visual style, it’s a largely forgettable experience. Not a bad one, but “oh yeah, I remember playing this” nostalgia after you’ve worked through the levels in the few hours it takes to shoot through.
It’s fairly obvious that Hitman GO was a mobile game. That doesn’t make it any less of a game either, it just seemingly does feel more suitable “on the go” gameplay. Presentation is minimal in lots of ways with lack of vastly huge animations, or environmental effects. It’s all rather sublime and sterile in ways, but feels both fitting for Hitman and the board game flair but also a tad disappointing.
It would have been an absolute travesty to see one of the highest regarded mobile games in recent memory suffer on the big screen, but Hitman GO: Defintive Edition is a stellar way to play Square Enix Montreal’s debut title. Granted, if you’re not a fan of the original mobile release, then a collection of all of its content is probably not going to change your mind whatsoever, but those with an aversion to mobile gaming are going to find themselves in for a treat here.
