The original score and voice acting is as impressive as ever. It’s definitely a part of the scenery, so good that you don’t notice it, but when you take it away, it ruins the vibe of the game.
On next-gen consoles, Hitman 3 is a stunning-looking game. Not only with the 4K-ness, the 60 frames and HDR, but every environment looks painstakingly handcrafted. Beautiful.
It plays exactly the same as Hitman 1 and 2, but you know what they say, right? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and boy is it not broken!
More narratively-driven with longer mid-mission stories, but fewer of them. On top of that, some great new ideas – like persistent shortcuts – but it feels a little disheartening not having the usual array of choice.
The list is okay, with a very predictable format. But it does encourage multiple playthroughs to get everything, although Mastery level 20 on every level is still a grind, perhaps even more so this time with fewer mission stories.
