Hitman is centrally a stealth action game, though gamers can choose to engage in high-octane gun battles instead. The intention of the game is to infiltrate a number of diverse environments and assassinate a target, as the title of the game would suggest, which can be done with a plethora of varied weapons and gadgetry.
Stealth or Action
Gamers can progress through the game at their own pace, choosing an all-guns-blazing approach, or silently working their way through the enemy base with a variety of gadgets and disguises. The gameplay provides constant challenges and new equipment to unlock by carrying out particular actions in a particular way. The breadth of content on offer is the real selling point, with multiple locations that have excellent replay value, thanks to the numerous means of achieving an objective via free-form assassinations. Each level begins with a limited weapons and gadgets loadout, though through controlling the protagonist, Agent 47, players will discover how best to utilise this loadout in taking down a target.
This title will satisfy lovers of both stealth and action gameplay, and has a whole heap of content to keep you coming back for me. However, the frustration can sometimes be in the difficulty, as a single mistake can mean starting over from the beginning.
