Hitman 2 review
by PiratiFy

One of the best, if not the best, silent assassin games ever made, even though 2016 Hitman's levels were better. Also, the online connectivity is required for a lot of things.

Good game of a great franchise. 
My two favorite puzzle games in one game!
Journal Style Review:

I started on Hitman 1. Prologue is alright. The small area does a good job of showing you how there will be many ways to complete a mission. The question is if I will think they are actually creative and enjoyable. 

The Paris mission isn’t bad. So far, I’m still mostly just figuring out how to get from one story mission location to the next, but there are still some challenges in that. Picking disguises is fun although kind of ridiculous. There is a lot of guess and check on how to manipulate scenarios. 

The number of challenges per mission is actually A little overwhelmingly. I beat the Paris mission 3 times. By the end I was a bit bored. Some of it felt creative but some of the problem solving aspects felt cheap. Right now, I’d say the game has a ton of different ways to solve the mission, but the ways don’t really feel natural. Like without the prompts I would never figure out the unique situations. And with the prompts I’m not really thinking how would I get this task complete? I’m just trying to get from point A to B.

I started another mission but I just don’t feel compelled to play it. I just don’t think I like the game much. It is very slow and has a lot of repetition. I don’t feel the creativity that it uses as it’s selling point yet.

Finished world of tomorrow. I was pretty sloppy about it. I don’t know if I will play this game anymore. It’s not really worth the time. I want to like this game. I want it to feel like MGSV with the creative stealth gameplay but it isn’t that type of game. I can see how some may like it. But I think it sucks. I think it’s boring. This is my final score for now. Probably won’t give this one another shot.

Final Score: B-
A positive sequel while retaining the amazing gaming experience of the original! Hitman 2 takes all the best qualities of the original "Hitman" game and builds on the experience.

What a worthy Successor! This Game is even trickier than its Predecessor. You can play it in 3 different Levels of difficulty. Especially The Entry-level Mode is very practical for the Successes-In-game as well as that Of Steam. Because then you don't have to disable the cameras all the Time. The Targets are actually more Beige, because the Exploration and Collection of Storyinfo in the individual Levels hits the Core of the Game more. You can do The Kill when it fits well. It's like Reinventing memory and Puzzle. And the Storyline is like a Bottle of Wine, which you now draw the Cork to let it breathe. (May the next Part of the Game be mround.;)) Especially the Implementation of the legendary Briefcase, the Hit feeling really blossoms. Unfortunately, the Guards are so thrilled by it that they take him, whether full or empty. But that's not the only cool thing that's been inserted, you can now strike with Frying Pans and the roll Of Pasta sauce now also makes Gastenaua. Furthermore, it is refreshing not to have to kill all the Targets, but to first collect Information or leave them unharmed. However, IO Should have calmly made times n Tutorial Trailer for the Release. Because so slowly no one is rising through what Silver, Standard or the Gold Tradition really mean now. With regard To Level Size, I can only say that it was slowly getting a little too big for me. To do all the Success alone in Miami I needed over 4 Days. That's when I wanted the "hated" episode release Back. And there's "finally" a PvP mode. Having the Option on it is not bad, but whether Effort and Benefits are in a profitable Relationship ... I can live well without this "Gimmick" and would have preferred ne Map more. The only thing that wormes me n bit is that the Successes from the first Part are not transferred to the second and you can do everything again from scratch. YES, the first Part has been completely revised here and it doesn't hurt to chew it through completely again, but transferring BUT Databases is not really so difficult. The Sound ... well ... The Background Music is kept very thin. Except there is ingame Music, which then supports the Atmosphere very well again. And yes, I also miss Jesper Kyd but whether he would still fit into the Bigger Picture here is anyway another Leaf. Anyone who buys Hitman because of the fat Graphics or because they want to rumble around is wrong here. The Graphics really can't be lumped, but nowadays every Game Forge should get reasonable Graphics. On the contrary, the Question I would like to get involved in this Franchise for the Purchase Price is because it is coherent and beautifully raised and accommodates my Style of play and I therefore want to spend a nice Time with gambling. And I have not regretted that Decision. And for all The Undecided, let it give you away for Christmas, run away yeah net;) And now, here the Translation: This game is awesome!
