More so than previous games in the series, Hitman has many objects in the game that can be tampered or interacted with. But before the player can there is usually a tool that will need to be found that allows this. Which means more time spent in the level trying to find and interact with objects in the environment, which can draw the player in and immerse them. See More
While playing single player, if the player looses connection to the games servers (through their own internet going down or the servers going down) the game will boot the player back to the start screen, meaning any advancement made in the game will be lost. To see this happen in single player is an issue as there is no need to be constantly connected online for the consumer and is only a detriment to the player if anything goes wrong. This is of course a single player only game, there is no need for it to be always online, especially considering it already uses a different DRM scheme called Denuvo. Being always online means anyone who lives with spotty internet will have trouble with the game. It also means that you do not own the game even after purchasing as when the servers inevitably are shut down this single player game will be unplayable. See More
Each episodic level for the game will be basically a big sandbox, allowing the player to complete their task in any way they see fit. This makes for a good game to just play around and test ideas out in as many different scenarios can be played out, even multiple times to best ones time or score. See More
Much of the content in the first chapter are a bunch of training levels that are represented as being done on a set of some kind, giving a feeling of not being real. The problem here is that there is little in the way of giving a feeling of wanting to revisit these training levels, which drastically cuts down on the playable content in this chapter. See More
The game allows for players to easily hide in plain sight such as disguising oneself as a model at a show, which gives the player access to anywhere they would need to go. This is expanded upon by having a hint system that points the player in many directions of how to hide easily (for those unfamiliar), which makes for a good game even for those that have not player or are unfamiliar with the gameplay.

Hitman is an episodic game with only the first chapter released so far. To purchase this single chapter costs only $14.99. For those that want to purchase the future chapters there is a choice to pay $59.99. Being that the other chapters are unreleased, it is difficult to know know what the quality will be or even if they will be completed. Seeing that the gaming industry has had issues in the past with delivering promised content it may be a good idea to wait till everything is released in order to pay the full price that is asked. Luckily by that time the game will also be cheaper. See More
Once the main level and objective is complete players can then move on to escalation missions or player created contracts. Escalation missions are new objectives given to the player that set them on a path of new people to assassinate. Within that objective will be constraints such as what outfits that need to be worn. This makes for a raised difficulty thanks to the restraints as well as a good way to stretch out each episode, considering there is only one level to play in. The player contracts are similar to this but allow the player to choose who their target is and what constraints to put in place, making for an endless list of possibilities in a particular level.

Rockstar Social Club is a forced online registration and DRM platform that will not allow one to play the game without first logging in to it. No internet connection, no play. Forget the password to the account three times, get locked out. All hindrances to paying customers that in no way will stop the piracy of this title or effect pirates in any way shape or form.

There were many reservations as to how well Rockstar was going to optimize the game for PC, as some of their past games had a lot of trouble in this area. Luckily it looks as though the game has been optimized quite well with the specs being quite reasonable in order to achieve 60FPS in 1080p on the best settings. See More
Players that have game saves on their console versions can import the save to the PC version, this way they will not have to start the game over from scratch to enjoy it on PC. Rockstar has a support page specifically to transfer the saves. See More
Examples of game-tied DLC (paid downloadable content) are masks, weapons, a skill set and locked achievements of games such as Hotline Miami Deluxe Edition and Speedrunners. This means you can't fully unlock all of the content available for Payday 2 unless you purchase these games as well. See More
With Crimefest 2015, the developer (Overkill) decided it would be a good idea to add stat boosting gun skins which can only be acquired through use of real money. This makes for a pay-to-win scenario where people who use real money can gain advantage over non-paying players. See More
Before jumping into the game the user will most likely need to set up the controls in settings as the wasd controls do not allow movement from side to side when first starting the game, while this can be adjusted, it is a pain to have to do this from the get go. See More
There is an ability called Swoop in the game that allows the main character to dash 15 feet ahead of where they are currently located, this gives a sens of power and really makes on feel as if they are a ninja. One of the best mechanics in the game, which makes the game a lot more enjoyable. See More
