Hitman 2's release date is almost here. The sequel to the PS4, Xbox One and PC continues the first-ever trend of creative killer missions all in exotic locations around the world. Critics critics received a 2016 reboot, although some fans had criticized their episodic release model. Hitman 2 has downgraded this model in favor of releasing everything in one direction – although the developer IO Interactive claims that more levels and challenges will come in the form of post-launch DLCs.
But the big question, of course, is Hitman 2 any good? To help you answer this question, we have compiled a number of critique reviews that you can find out below. For more, check out the GameSpot sister site Metacritic or our own Hitman 2 report, in which Edmond Tran gave the game 8/10.

GameSpot – 8/10
"Hitmans will be waiting for you to see if the plan will work when you first try it. It's about the feeling that you are fasting from a bad situation in the hope that you can lose the suspicious guards. It's a level of knowledge satisfaction levels so good, that when the target moves in a particular place at a given time, you have the perfect way to intervene. Hitman 2 is a well-known experience, but Hitman's world-class recognition is incredibly strong. "- Edmond Tran [Full review]
IGN – 7.7 / 10
"Hitman 2 does not make much note of its predecessor's structure, and therefore feels like Hitman 1.5 more than a complete result, but it's not bad. Offering more from the deepest, most comprehensive stealth sandbox games, the inclusion of Hitman (2016) is a bonus for those who did not initially use repeat So, hopefully next time they will focus more on the schedule.

Eurogamer – no rating
"Hitman 2 is not the benchmark that was the last game, and, given that it almost did not happen, with IO, who renounced Square Enix's right within the eleventh hour, it could only be expected of one who does not accept us. Everywhere that is notorious for Hitman – all cards have precedents in the older games, as well as a whole variety of small tweaks, just like the NPCs that you see in the mirrors or image images that you have successfully fired, there are rhythms right on the 2016 ride. There are many to return to each map, but from Trumpian politicians to slowly unlock the repertoire of lighter or more ambitious strategies, and at least Ghost is suggesting a series that transforms a new page. I hope the IO has the ability to keep up with it since Hitman is still one of the smartest stealth experiences there is a true game of unequal time – a window to a society where the spoiled elite always receives what comes straight or foul means.

GamesRadar + 3.5 / 5
"There's definitely no innovation here, it's more like Hitman's game, which we've seen many years ago, and I'm afraid that Hitman 2 arrives at a time when it simply can not compete with Red Dead Redemption 2, like Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Fallout 76, especially in the open sandbox of the world. In addition, the Hitman 2 presentation is really weird, which suggests it's a little bit of a door, but I can not blame what it offers. It's really all that you need. Requires Hitman 2.

USGamer – 4.5 / 5
"Everything that is Hitman 2 can be amazing in the first red color. The launcher is not the latest of Hitman 2 either with Elusive Targets (limited time hits, first major actor Sean Bean) and more on the way to the secret sandbox. Now I will leave you ready. "- Caty McCarthy [Full review]
