The best mobile adaptation of a console game I have seen
Some developers try to port their console games directly onto iOS with mixed success, though controls and graphical limitations hamper these. Some try to make a cheap cash grab or create a companion app that's a novelty for two days. Square Enix's Hitman Go however blends the best of console and mobile gaming to make an awesome game worth your time. The graphics aren't demanding, though each set piece looks awesome. It runs and looks well on both my iPod touch 4g and iPad Air. The limited polygon style allows it to look awesome on both low and high end devices. The gameplay is simple and quick, giving you enough options to improvise your actions without having to over-think them. There's a lot of levels and locations, each offering a new element of gameplay. Though challenges give you an incentive to replay missions, I felt as though there could be a bit more replability. Because there are no leaderboards, once a level's achievements are completed, you are done with it permanently. I was able to complete the game within a large portion of three days. A level creator (if possible) would be nice. But with or without it, Hitman Go is a must buy.
Love it. Update made it even better.
Amazingly detailed. Don't let the look fool you. It's a very well designed strategy game. Tons of fun. I'm not a classic Hitman fan but I love stealth games, so getting through levels unnoticed is a really fun challenge.
Update: My one big cities complaint was no cloud save or cross play on other iOS devices. They have now fixed that so I can seamlessly pick up my progress between iPhone and iPad. Love it.
Minor Gripes: wish that the world select screen would show a stamp or marker to show which game boxes you have 100% completed. And within each world, it shows which stages have been finished with all 3 objectives. But you can't click on one to find out what the objectives were in that stage. Would be helpful for stages you want to go back and finish.
Great Game, Extremely Difficult
I would give a big 5.0 for this app if it weren't for the fact that it is much more difficult than i imagined. Like, I could spend an hour on one level and get nowhere. I love it, the graphics, the animations, the sounds, the board game aesthetic, the works. But when it comes to gameplay, don't commit to this one unless you are a hardcore puzzle solver. I, like a good majority of the people reading this, am not a hardcore puzzle solver, but I do enjoy them. If you still really want this app, work your way up to it; this is the hardest strategy game by far. Start off with Monument Valley, 2048, heck, even super stickman golf 2. But if you want to jump right in, good luck. I'm not here to drive you away from the app, just to give you a heads up of what's to come, and how you should prepare.
