    dkirschner's Hitman 2 (PC)

    [February 12, 2021 03:09:06 PM]
    It's hard to believe I started playing Hitman 2 back in JULY 2020. What a journey. This has been like THE pandemic game for me. I started it before going on a quick vacation before school began in August. I got into it quickly, played and replayed the first couple levels. Then, well, we all know how August was, and then September, and then October, and then November...I barely touched a game for months because work was so busy. I picked Hitman back up briefly when my cat was dying in November. I lived in my bathroom for several days with her and remember I couldn't sleep one night and so I set my laptop on my toilet and played for a few hours sitting on the floor to occupy my brain. That was the Mumbai level. I picked it up briefly again before this semester started, but I was getting frustrated with it because I forgot how to play and didn't remember what I was doing, and the story was confusing, and it felt samey, and there is so much replayability, and I was stressed about another pandemic semester, and I started thinking "just end this game!" I uninstalled and started something else. But what happened when I uninstalled? It started creeping into my head. How funny some of the set pieces were. How clever I felt finding new ways to assassinate someone. How beautiful and masterfully designed the levels were. I eventually looked and saw I had only two levels left. I reinstalled, and eventually found time over the last week to finish. Worth it. This is by far the best Hitman game I've played, and although I don't love the series, this is the easiest to love of all of them. In fact, I did replay most missions (and I am not a replayer!) over the course of it, did a lot of the mission stories, and so on. I could spend another 20 hours with it and be entertained.

    So, maybe more than the game itself, I remember the state of the world (my little world and the larger world) while I was playing it.

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Frustrating as others in the series are for me, but I want to learn the game. ----------- Beat it! Lots of replayability.
