Hitman’s new mode transforms it into one of the best roguelikes ever
Freelancer mode is a rare amalgamation of challenge and approachability
I enjoyed the original game a lot; this mode seems exciting!
“Hitman’s Freelancer mode is something rare: an intoxicating blend of challenge and approachability. It plays on the hubris of longtime players, but also guides newcomers with thematic objectives and a more explicit overall structure. It may not allow for the micro-repetition that makes the base trilogy tick. But it does maintain a rapid momentum from the beginning of each run to its bitter, comical end. After so many hours spent with this trilogy, combing each of its locations for something, anything I missed, I did not think it possible for IO to surprise me anymore — but here we are.”Posted on 2023-02-02T06:18:16+0000
