'Hitman 2' challenges you to build a better murder mousetrap in all the right ways
Hitman 2 is basically just a slightly more perfect version of Hitman, easily one of the best games of 2016.
As sequels go, it doesn't do much to shake things up. Mirrors work now, so if you're sneaking up behind someone standing in front of a mirror, it's not going to go well. The user interface is also improved, with clearer indicators to let you know when you're in an area that's off-limits for whatever disguise (or non-disguise) you're wearing.
The heart of Hitman 2, the stuff that really matters, is just as it's always been. You are Agent 47, the bald, barcode-tattooed super-assassin who grasps all the angles and can disappear into any crowd after knocking out some innocent passerby and stealing their duds for a quick costume change.
