Hitman, Part 2: Sapienza & Marrakesh (PS4) Review

Image
This is the second in a series of reviews that cover the new, episodic Hitman game across most of 2016. Each episode will be reviewed and scored as it is released.

Check out Episode 1 here.

THE SHORT VERSION
After the cold-toned mansion in Paris, Hitman uses more vibrant and thrilling locales for episodes that are mechanically solid but narratively shaky.



STORY
I've gotta be honest - I have no idea what the story of the new Hitman is anymore.


On the margins, it seems as if a grizzly older guy - who may be a former ICA operative, or is perhaps just a nutter with an
aptitude for murder - is after something being held by an organisation called Providence. Though we keep getting cutscenes at the end of each story mission that attempt to convey the narrative, the game makes Agent 47 feel divorced from the larger plot going on around him by its alarming lack of focus within gameplay.

WE LIKE TO WATCH: EPISODE NINE - MOVIE CATCHUP

Image
After a brief break Stu and I are back this week with Episode 9!

This week we're doing things a little bit different and discussing all the film we've seen during the two week break.

Stu has been a busy bee and checking out films at the Sydney Film Festival. (Seriously he's almost been watching 3 films a day. Crazy)

While I was watching films on flight to Canada for work, and catching up on some Netflix in my downtime.

As always it would make our day if you could take a couple of minutes to rate and reviews us on iTunes or drop us some feedback below! Really keen to have your input in the show.

Enjoy!
