    I'll just break down the pros and cons of this game since that's easy to understand. Pros: -Very challenging stealth gameplay -Fantastic level design with huge open areas -Mission variety when it comes to taking down targets is huge -Customization options are also varied and interesting -The story is good Cons: -Do not play this game with the frame rate set to [unlocked], lock the game to 30fps or it will run terribly. -The story ends on an obvious please play Season 2 to find out more cliffhanger. -The disk is basically just used as a way to download all of the episodes from the store online so you will have to wait to play, download the game and the first episode before anything else you can play that while you wait on the rest. -The bonus "Illusive Targets" are time sensitive so there are a lot of things in the game new players won't be able to do as far are more targets go. -The game can be played offline but you will not progress properly so basically the game is online only even though it's single player. Overall the game itself is a lot of fun, tons of content and replay ability. The physical steel book case is really nice as well, and the game doesn't take too long to download as long as you have decent internet. If you're a fan of the older Hitman games you'll love this no doubt.

    This is not the game I thought it would be. You play the mission in same scene until you complete various different kill variant choices! For you to move on to the next mission you have to purchase the mission and you need to wait a designated time before you can buy it! I can't believe they did this after waiting over a year for this game! I don't want to Rate this game really bad because the actual graphics and gameplay are good. But it is the worst game yet to date out of both platforms, PS4/ Xbox one! This my opinion! Remind you i own 398 games and 4 game platforms. I had Hitman on the Xbox 360 platform and sold it and should have never did so it blew this new Hitman game away. As to creeping around and selecting targets and weapons and moving from one location to another was what I was expecting with just a whole lot more ghrapics and details (NOT)! Sad Sad!!! I've never been disappointed in a game yet because I've always checked reviews beforepurchasing which I did and there was no inclinition of the need of in game mission purchasing!! ( bad business practice!)

    Change of pace and replayability

    I haven't followed the Hitman series so I can't compare this game to those, but I know the premise of gameplay and picked this up on sale to try something different amid my normal RPG and FPS games. This game was fun! The missions offer a large array of flexibility and creativity. If you're an achievement hunter, then there's a lot of replay value as they task you with using certain techniques of which by using one, you can't use the other. But since missions can be fast, it isn't overwhelming or feel like farming. I'm also a fan of finding solid solo games, as everything seems to be always online with strangers who don't communicate or have their own agenda (no teamwork). Def a fun pick up.

    Hitman: The Complete First Season

    "The Complete First Season" means it comes with all the episodes that were released. So, all the missions and challenges are available in this edition after you download them with the codes provided. Realistic graphics and sound. Tons of missions and challenges. Online community. Well-organized game. Easy controls and user intuitive. Real-life weapons. This actual item is the "Steelbook Edition" meaning that it has a more sturdier (but not really steel) plastic case that is meant to look like steel. This game is 5 STARS.

    When I heard Square-Enix and IO Interactive were releasing an "episodic style" Hitman game (a la Telltale Games), I didn't know how to react. Having played the first episode (Paris), this changed my mind. This game is a return to roots for the series. Large massive maps, numerous ways to execute the targets. My main gripe is that the first-season content seems light in comparison to previous Hitman games, like Absolution and Blood Money. With all that aside, and how that IO Interactive was able to wrestle the Hitman IP back from the publishers, I'm incredibly excited to see the direction the team takes future Hitman games going forward.

    I've logged many hours into this game, it's beautifully crafted. Wish it was longer but it's broken up into "seasons" as lots of games are doing now. It has tons of replay value, for me at least. Looking forward to season 2. The graphics are top notch for next gen consoles, and the levels are great in size. I feel like it is a great purchase for fans of the original series, just straight forward assassinations peppered with mysterious backstory in between levels. Fun!

    Never was a huge fan of the Hitman series, but this one had a great visual aesthetic and a large variety of gameplay challenges so I decided to give it a try. Overall, the game plays much better as a complete collection then each individual episode as it was originally released, and I really enjoyed my time with it. There are a huge variety of different ways to approach the same scenario, and many of them led to me having some good laughs.

    Not Great

    It took all of 8 hours to play all of the story mode missions. I like to have a deep story to guide you along the way in an open world type game. This is not it. 6 basic missions and then several ways to do the same missions over and over is not my idea of a great game. There is a lot of online content, but I haven't explored that as I was very bummed when the story ended so quickly. Glad it was a Deal of the Day buy.

    I'd Hate To See the Incomplete Version...

    What could have been a wonderful revolving door of content turned out to be 5 missions you can complete an infinite number of ways... and that's the complete edition... utterly disappointed that there wasn't more to this game as the Hitman franchise has a very loyal following for very good reasons. This game? Certainly didn't endear me to the franchise. It has possibly 4 hours of meaningful gameplay.... #sad

    I bought the intro pack for 9 bucks on Xbox Live during a sale. 9 bucks eh why not? I'm glad I did. I could not wait to buy the complete season. The replay value is huge since I'm trying to finish a lot of challenges for the levels. I think one level has 160 challenges or something like that.. I seen it on sale a lot lately, totally worth it if you like stealth games and fan of the series

    Get This Game A++

    Stealth is the name of the game when it comes to Hitman. If you enjoy sandbox games and stealth, buy this game. Every map gives you targets to assassinate. The beauty of the game is that you're not told how to kill your targets; there is more than one way to get your target. The fun is trying to perfect your way in and out of each map. Definitely worth checking out.

    I think the new Hitman does a good job preserving the hitman vibe. I am not through with the game yet but what could be the drawback is that the story side is not very strong. Unlike the classic Hitman series we used to love this one does not have a very compelling story to begin with. But let's see, I hope it can surprise me as I move forward in the game.

    I was going to buy this game at Gamestop last week, but I talked myself out of it be cause the price wasn't quite low enough. Then Best Buy had a great price during their Black Friday in July sale and I couldn't pass it up. So glad I got it. It's a great stealth game with both a main story line and side missions. I definitely recommend it.

    So much to do in this game. The complete episode version will keep you entertained for days on end. Once you finish a mission one way, you can go back and do it a thousand different other ways. Sneaky or guns blazing, the choice is always yours. As a game collector, I couldn't pass up on the steelbook edition for such a great price.

    Fun Sandbox Death Simulator

    IO Games did a great job in creating a large number of sandboxes in which to attempt death on the targets in a variety of fun and exciting ways. I already 25 hours in and only master the first two levels and have 6 levels left, and with different contracts and other things will keep me coming back to sneak in and murder my targets. So fun.

    It has been awhile since I played any game in the Hitman series. After reading the reviews I picked this one up and I'm loving it. If you are a fan of the Hitman series this one will fit right in. The story is fun to follow and the graphics are very good, love trying to stealth each mission. Hours of gameplay!

    I haven't played a Hitman game since the PS2 era. Now, I feel like I should go back and try them all, because of this game. You are given targets to eliminate. But, the vast amount of variety that is given to you on how to eliminate is where the fun begins. There are so many options that there is a ton of replayability.

    Though I've not played any of the previous editions I'm glad I picked this up. Action,stealth,and long gameplay make this a winner in my book. Definitely recommend this to older players who like to sit and figure out different ways to accomplish tasks and take out bad guys. I think there's a little Hit man in us all.

    I only give this game 4 stars because for only one season, it's a pretty short campaign. There's so much attention to detail that the devs could only pack in 6 episodes. I'm really hoping they come out with future seasons so the game remains enjoyable rather than gathering dust in my games cabinet.

    I have played all the hitman games as they were released through the years. I was disappointed with absolution and was hesitant to purchase the next game. I am glad that I did though as the levels are much less linear and the ability to go after multiple different targets really enhanced replay value.
