Title
Simpler but way smoother.
Among the "Hitman" games I happened to try so far, this is definitely the best. It's a collection of huge and highly detailed sandboxes where your only aim is to find new and creative ways to kill the same targets. How can somebody not like it?

The stealth mechanics used to be too clunky and highly frustrating in the previous game, but this time everything has been smoothened out to make gameplay simpler but far more effective. The most significant addition to the mechanics is the addition of "opportunities", which are basically ways to approach the targets you can choose from. These can easily turn the whole experience into mechanically following preset objectives with little input from the player, but at least help players discovering all available options without leaving them completely in the dark.

If you liked "Hitman: Absolution" for the story, this game might be a letdown. There are cutscenes in between levels, but I found it hard to find their connections with the gameplay. None of us is probably playing "Hitman" for the story anyway.

Title
The online-only stuff sucks a lot. Episodes being whole levels works totally fine for the established Hitman framework, and 2016 blowing that wide open to make each level an emergent playground and tying unlocks to level mastery was the right way to go. But the elusive targets, though slotting into the difficulty of the franchise, are a gaping wound for late adopters, for whom that content is just gone. The menus also seem a little slow and I would ultimately have rathered less levels for more varied setpieces than a few somewhat linear methods to get Silent Assassin across all levels. The last one, in particular, is no problem. But other than that, it's Hitman, which means it's awesome. It still fills a niche and feels more like a longstanding social puzzle game than a stealth-action suite.

Title
With its huge levels and insane amount of interactions and opportunities, i have no doubt that this is the best Hitman game so far. They took the basic concept of Blood Money and just made it even better, along with the rare few additions that Absolution did right.

Its so fun to mess around with the AI, to discover brand new ways to eliminate the targets and the sweet dark comedy of the game. The game gets no points however due to its story, and some levels are noticably weaker than others, in particular Morocco and the ranch. Even at its worst, its still a highly entertaining stealth action game. Hitman does stealth like no other game does, and likewise offers freedom in how you tackle your objective that makes it extremely replayable.

One of the very best of 2016 - and all time actually.

    i dont think i can really compare all the levels in the game as they are extremely consistent although this isnt as groundbreaking or fun as the probably now classic Hitman: Blood Money

    Sapienza is definitely a bit overrated. Exploring the beautiful town is great, but I found the mansion a bit samey after the first couple of playthroughs and the underground bunker becomes a chore after the first playthrough.

    It's still very good, but not the best level of the trilogy, definitely not up to the variety and replayability of Hokkaido, Miami or Mendoza.
