Title
Met my expectations rather than exceeding them. Hitman 3 is a satisfying end to the trilogy but not really as good as 2, mostly just because the same pieces are all still there but sanded off a little. The maps are a bit smaller, still have lots of environmental storytelling going on but overall less to do in each, and the story of 2 is mostly just continued instead of properly expanded upon, though it still remains compelling spy fiction with an anti-corporate elite stance. Even the one entirely linear level was still better than the entirety of Absolution.

Title
Linear wolf in Open sheeps clothing
i find all the new hitman games utterly frustrating due to the paradoxical level design. On one hand it enforces an open structured experimental playstyle only to punish experimentation and forcing the player into specific event loops. i cant count how many times i wanted to try out a certain path only to find myself be frustrated missing a particular event. MGSV is a better example for an open structured level design as it rewards experimentation instead of punishing it like this game does.

Title
Almost the greatest stealth game
On Wikipedia, HITMAN III & MGSV are both stated to be one of the greatest stealth games of all-time. I'd say almost, not quite, but close enough.

Title
A good continuation of the series.

As a whole, I was a bit disappointed with the lack of development between 1,2,3 - but they work really well as a single package. Just don't expect a big jump in quality between them.

This one had some great levels.

I'm mixed on the levels that factor more into the story - they feel less like replayable sandbox missions. Not quite linear, but heading in that direction.

Overall a fantastic series that I regret waiting so long to finally check out!

    Btw, unbelievable finale. All of the levels have been incredible, possibly the pinnacle of the series technical issues aside.

    Damn that last level is really underwhelming. I know it's meant to be an epilogue and not a full blown level but it plays like a bad Absolution mission. Still it doesn't impact my view of the game that much. I really loved the rest of the maps and the game as a whole actually achieves what Absolution was supposed to be, mixing more cinematic structure of missions with the sandbox formula. I think I still prefer the level design in Hitman 2 in terms of replayability but I appreciate how unique and memorable all the main levels in this are.

      Well, if you think about it. Most of Hitman games tried to end on a more streamlined levels with action approach. I do believe that Contracts is the one that balanced it right between a cinematic action finale and a Hitman type of playground if we count WOA as it's own mo.nolith game in the series, which it is now.

    i think this mixes some of absolution and the current level design quite well. i did also enjoy absolution a lot, though
