1. HITMAN 3
It took more than 20 years of Hitman games, but IO Interactive has finally put everything they’ve learned into practice. Hitman 3, the most recent entry in the series, is the ultimate Hitman game.
2. HITMAN 2 (2018)
There isn’t a lot I can say about Hitman 2 that will be particularly novel. Hitman games borrow from each other a lot, and Hitman 2 is just a refinement of Hitman 2016. The levels are more intricate, more immersive, and more creative.
3. HITMAN (2016)
This was the moment that Hitman went back to its roots. Absolution went in a different direction, and it didn’t go to plan. There was an obvious demand for something closer to the classic games, and Hitman 2016 felt like a conscious effort to recapture that old-school spirit.
5. HITMAN GO
At their very core, stealth games are puzzle games. You may disagree with me, but I think it explains why Hitman Go is such a confident adaptation. Stealth is about methodical forethought, and Hitman Go speaks to that.
The Hitman series has a very distinct genealogy. Each game is largely iterative and lays the foundation for the next. Silent Assassin is an important game in this respect as it was an early example of many of the ideas that would go into the more recent World of Assassination games.
