Review: Hitman: Bangkok

Hitman has been getting run through the wringer over the past five months, and it has almost nothing to do with its gameplay. No, the core is pretty sound -- a natural evolution of the "find and kill" staple it helped define in 20...   read

The new Hitman episode has a pretty clear lampoon of Donald Trump

Hitman is known for its off-the-cuff dialogue sessions between otherwise meaningless AI characters, and this one kind of caught me off guard, albeit a long-hanging fruit kind of off guard. While playing the new Bangkok level, I happene...   read

IO Interactive has plans for three seasons of Hitman

I'm eager for IO Interactive to wrap up Hitman not just because I'm enjoying it so far, but because I want folks who are opposed to its episodic structure to play it and have a good time, too. There are a few locations left to go, including...   read

Review: Hitman: Marrakesh

IO Interactive's Paris and Sapienza maps for the new Hitman have delighted fans and proven the development team knows just how to use Agent 47 -- as a Rube Goldberg trigger. And IO is comfortably in its groove with the third episode, Marrak...   read

Be on the lookout for this congressman in Hitman

How are we going to take out The Congressman? He'll be in Hitman's Sapienza for 48 hours as of today and once he leaves, he won't return. We have to make it count. I'm thinking about coming after him as the hippy, if only for the simple r...   read

Review: Hitman: Sapienza

Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The job (professional...   read

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...   read

Naked body pile executions are why Hitman is so good

You may remember from my review that the new, episodic Hitman is good as heck, "a dope slapstick murder comedy." I recounted a few funny tales here, including a pretty amusing, but not all that creative kill (it's practically set up for you...   read

Would you rather kill Gary Busey or Gary Cole?

Well, Hitman is no stranger to out-there advertising strategies. At least this one doesn't allude to a heavy flow. Also, preemptive joke reminder: Gary Coleman died in 2010.   read

Fun with Hitman, TRAPDOOR SPIDER STYLE

Review: Hitman

Hitman is the funniest game I've played in a while. IO Interfactive's subtitle-free reboot of its long-running assassination franchise is, mostly, side-stepping cinematics full of S&M nuns and returning to the realm of slapstick. For an...   read
