 Talk more about the storyline, does the player feel emotionally connected with the character, and is the storyline good enough to be the final game of the series?

Games Environment

Hitman 3 includes a novel milieu to explore or compete with tons of unique assassination opportunities and portraying methods.

The environment is serious and full of suspense. At first glance, the levels of Hitman 3, Hitman 2, and Hitman are virtually identical, withal, few interesting changes have been made, i.e., there is the image sharpening, the lighting design is with subtle variation, the effects remains nearly the same between games.

According to IO Interactive, levels will now offer more cinematic inter sequences that help add a bit more intensity to the climactic narrative.

 In the analysis between Hitman 2 and the original game in the trilogy, there were subtle changes. The suit seemed to lack some high-fidelity textures and the face was worked a bit, giving a more slightly different look.

It appears those same changes have been addressed once again with this latest entry as Agent 47 suit is now spotting high-resolution textures along with, added details.

The interesting change is with the idiosyncrasies of Agent 47 as he appears younger, his jawline is now more rounded his cheeks are not quite sunken. Withal, there is a change in the eye color of Agent 47 making them light blue as compared to purple they have before. Really fine details like skin pores, smaller veins in his cornea is prominent this time.

IN Game Puzzles

The joy of the game is not in the hit itself but all the building up to the hit. This journey matters, this solving of the puzzle. Killing a target, solving that puzzle, is a secondary joy to the person of it all.

In Hitman Agent 47 carried out several contracts for a mysterious shadow client. The shadow client was using the ICA to attack providence and he considered the mysterious secret society to be the mutual enemy.

In Hitman 2, providence attempted to use ICA to strike back at the shadow client. In this Agent 47 finally met the mercenary face to face to discover he is his childhood friend Subject 6. After taking an antidote 47 and Diana joined 6 in his mission and then 47 and 6 kidnapped the Constant, the top controller at providence.

In Hitman 3, Agent 47 and Subject 6 will plan to wipe out providence one and for all.


Composed by Jesper kyd. It is possibly darker in composition. When compared to Jesper kyd’s scores of previous Hitman games.

The score features the same Latin choral arrangements as it was there in all the other scores. They are heavily sampled and mixed into the dark electronic soundscape. In this, many small stories are mixed, so that’s why the score follows the darker aspect.


Hitman 3 looks, sounds, and plays better than before, they have reduced the trilogy file size to 100GB and retroactively improve the previous two installments.

Hitman 3 will turn IO’s work on Agent 47 into a neat little package. Next, there is a new gadget the camera, this plays a pretty decent role in the game as it can now be used to hack objects in the game,  

There are few subtle changes with the presentation of Agent 47. The face is reworked a bit. Agent 47 suit is now spotting nice high-resolution textures, again along with added details.

There are changes in idiosyncrasies and really fine details have been enhanced. Like in Hitman 2 new fidelity effect sharpening was added which according to the description in game saving helps to counter the effects caused by temporal antialiasing.
