A tip that the saga Hitman applies with rigor since its creation in the year 2000. After a very successful reboot in 2016, Hitman 2 arrives this week on consoles and PC. We find there, the smile on his lips, the agent 47. Great laced bald with impassible face, the man is best known as one of the best assassins on the planet. And from the United States to India, after a detour through New Zealand, Colombia and the fictitious island of Sgail, he will be keen to demonstrate his sense of perfect crime when it comes to to discreetly disappear his targets.
An infiltration simulation par excellence, Hitman 2 offers a vast playground for those who want to be imaginative and slip into the shoes of a real hit man. Whether he is sent to a small bourgeois district without history or in the tumult of a Grand Prix automobile, 47 knows how to improvise. And precisely, it is this part of freedom that hits the mark. The player never feels embarrassed to be inventive, while enjoying a large space to express themselves on the six giant levels proposed. With an excellent level of replayability to test different scenarios, Hitman 2 is listed as one of the best games of the moment.
