Anime Espionage Action
HIGH Fast paced combat, humorous situations.
LOW Crummy camera, odd difficulty spikes.
WTF Why is Amelia wearing a domino mask?
There’s very little dialogue in The Light Keeps Us Safe. At the start of the game, the only speaking role is a woman whispering into the player’s communications device, and she’s only around for a few minutes before she leaves. However, she utters one of the most evocative opening lines I’ve heard recently.
“You are lucky, in a way. You got to hide down there for so long. But now you have to deal with it all alone.”
In my recent review of Hitman Episode 2, one complaint was about the “Elusive Target” missions — despite the game debuting two months ago, that section of the Hitman menu remained blank. IO Interactive hadn’t said what those missions would consist of, nor had they set a release date for them. As luck would have it, the first Elusive Mission launched the day my review went live, so consider this an amendment about this formerly-absent content.
HIGH Feels like a love letter to fans
LOW Save restrictions in secondary game modes
WTF NPCs still referencing a target and not reacting much after he’s been killed
