Hitman: Episode Two - Sapienza

Overview -

Agent 47's second mission takes him to the coastal town of Sapienza, Italy, where he is tasked with eliminating a virus that could kill anyone on earth on command, as well as the scientists behind it. Taking out two high-profile targets in a packed little town might not be so easy, but there's a wealth of opportunities to ensure everything goes off without a hitch in the latest part of IO's reboot of their classic series.

Video Review


'Hitman' remains as gorgeous as it has ever been, and the town looks absolutely terrific. It's hard not to get distracted from the mission at hand and just try looking around when an environment is this pretty. There are some minor texture issues with objects such as newspapers, but they don't detract from an otherwise beautiful game.

Audio Review


The 'Bond'-inspired score gets the job done nicely. It's always fun when the music begins to swell once all objectives are completed, and it's time to make an escape. That said, the real star here goes to the game's fantastic sound design, bringing each area to life in a wonderful way. There is the occasional audio glitch, but it's nothing major, and will hopefully be ironed out soon enough.

Final Thoughts

Even better than the terrific first episode, the Sapienza mission might be a series high point. While there are still some technical issues, and the lengthy load times hamper things in a game where reloading to give things another shot is such a big part of it, the overall experience has been incredible so far. I can't wait to see what comes next.
