Hitman 2 Review

Same Hit, Different Day

HIGH Taking out two targets by derailing a train into them.

LOW The mess of a story attempting to link each level together.

Hitman GOTY Edition Announced

Hitman developer IO Interactive has had a rollercoaster of a year.

Halloween 2016 marked the final release of new content for the rebooted version of the franchise, and Square Enix (Hitman‘s publisher) announced it was parting ways with IO Interactive. While the pub let IO keep the Hitman IP, its future was unclear. However, the first act of IO as an independent developer was announced today.

Hitman: Club 27 Review

Dead and breakfast

HIGH Hilarious background NPC dialogue.

The Future of Hitman As A Platform

Hitman 4

I’m holding out hope that IO Interactive’s new version of Hitman ends up being successful. It’s already getting good reviews. As I’m writing this, Chapter 1 has a 77 on Metacritic, Chapter 2 has an 84 and Chapter 3 has a 75 for the Playstation 4 versions. Those aren’t extraordinary scores, but this is without a doubt the best Hitman has been since series favorite Blood Money, which launched a decade ago.
