Hi guys! Today I will talk about Hitman 2. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The story of Hitman 2 continuous where the story of the first game left off.
Hitman 2’s story is interesting though I wouldn’t say that it is something that will leave you on the edge of your seats waiting for what’s coming next.
It’s a good story that adds to the gameplay but nothing more than that.
The gameplay of Hitman 2 is very good and the reason that it’s very good is that its prequels gameplay was good. Hitman and Hitman 2 have 0 difference when it comes to gameplay. Hitman 2 is Hitman with just new missions added.
I don’t know if that’s a bad thing or not, I will leave it for you to decide. Personally, I didn’t have a problem with that. What I did have a problem with however was its pricing, but I will talk more about that in the Final Thoughts section.
If you have already played the first Hitman then you know what to expect from the gameplay of the second game. Now for those that haven’t played the first Hitman, the gameplay is as follows. Before you start a mission there is a planning phase where you choose the weapons, tools, and suit you are going to wear, you also choose the difficulty.
After the mission starts your objectives to complete it are shown on the upper left corner of the screen. There are multiple ways to complete the missions. The game is designed in that way to give it a lot of replayability since you can play the same mission in a completely different way the second time around or third or fourth etc.
Personally, I played all the missions one time on the master difficulty(hardest possible difficulty). I didn’t feel the need to play them multiple times. Don’t get me wrong, the game is good, it’s just that I rarely do multiple playthroughs on games and this game didn’t hook me enough to want to do multiple playthroughs.
As for the enemies, since I played the game on the hardest difficulty, they had the most awareness but I can’t say completing the mission was something very difficult(on the master difficulty you only have one save available in each mission). I think Hitman wants you to set your own difficulty, for example, if you get noticed you can choose to load the mission from the last save, but completing the missions by any means necessary and without any personal restraints isn’t difficult even on master difficulty.
It takes around 10 hours to complete all missions on average. As I said the game wants you to play the missions multiple times in different ways, so you can say that its content is dependent on you and whether playing the same missions in different ways is something you want to do.
The visuals of Hitman 2 are the same as the visuals of the first game. I said it in the gameplay section but I will say it again. Hitman 2 is the same game as Hitman with just new missions added. Don’t get this game expecting something different from what you have already seen.
Of course, there are new locations that you will visit when you play the new missions and as always they are very well designed but the graphics haven’t changed.
As for the customization, there are a variety of suits available for each mission so I’d say the customization is decent.
Let me summarize what you should remember from this article.
First, the story is good but nothing mindblowing.
The gameplay is the same as in the first Hitman game. If you don’t limit yourself in the ways you consider as valid in completing the missions then the game isn’t that challenging even on master difficulty.
The visuals are the same as in the first Hitman game.
I recommend waiting for a sale to buy this game because it isn’t worth the full price at all. If you notice the review scores I have given Hitman 2 are the same as the review scores of the first Hitman because they are basically the same game with different missions.
General Rating: 8
