Is Hitman Worth It?
Although the name does not suggest it, Hitman from 2016 is already the sixth installment in the series. As with all parts of the assassin series, this one also relies on non-linear gameplay in open sandbox levels. Your job is always to complete a specific assassination target.
In the test we enjoyed it, if not unreservedly: At the time we criticized the textures and models as well as the shootings. At the same time, however, we were impressed by the level design, the various gadgets and the huge locations.
