I've been a fan of this series since the PS2 era when I first played Blood Money and spent countless hours on that game. My favorite map was the one set in the theater, I kept finding ways to kill the targets and looking back I think it's amazing that I never felt bored while playing it, even though I knew everything about that game, how to get the Silent Assassin rank in every map and so on.
Then I tried the previous Hitman games, and when Hitman: Absolution launched I loved it! Fast forward some years after that and then I started playing HITMAN (2016) on the PS4, and I spent like 30 hours easily on the Paris map, trying to complete all challenges without looking it up on the internet. But I stopped playing for a year because reasons, and then last week I decided to buy HITMAN 2 since it had the missions of the first game + the newest mechanics that HITMAN 2 offered.
And, once again, I sunk lots of hours on the Paris map but not as much as the first time since I've already knew all the in's and out's of it, the optimal path for assassinating the targets and where every relevant item was located, but I never felt bored playing that map all over again. It was just as fun as the first time I played it.
Anyways, today I finally got the chance to start playing the Sapienza map and… Wow! I actually felt really intimidated by how big of a map it is! I still haven't finished my first run of the map, so far I was able to kill Silvio Caruso (by poisoning his spaghetti and then choking him with the fiber wire) and destroy the virus by overheating it. Now there's only Francesca De Santis left and I can't wait to go back and find a "out of the box" way to eliminate her!
I can't even think of a way to complete the Silent Assassin, Suit Only challenge in this map, and I play in the Professional difficulty with minimal help from the game, I can't even imagine how it's like to play it on the Master difficulty. But that's what I love about this game: it makes you find new ways to complete your objectives, without punishing you for finding clever ways of doing so, and even when you already know everything about the map, you still can be creative or make your own challenges, the replayability is through the roof!
This game is so awesome and I'm so glad this franchise was part of my childhood, adolescence and now adulthood. Agent 47 will always have a special place in my heart and I'm super pumped for the final installment of the game! (And I still have to play the rest of the maps!!!
If you've read through this wall of text, then allow me to thank you for your time and attention. I hope you love this game as much as me!
