Rich, rewarding, and highly replayable, Hitman 3 is one of the barcoded butcher's best appearances.
IO's final World of Assassination game is closer to a seasonal content update than a sequel, but it's a thrilling endeavour all the same.
PC Gamer: 90/100
A beautiful, deep, and endlessly replayable murder sandbox, featuring some of the best levels in the series.
A slick and entertaining conclusion to the trilogy.
Game Informer: 9/10
Agent 47's journey ends on a high note, at least as far as players are concerned. New levels are memorable and cater to the freedom fans have come to expect
What's good about Hitman--its level design and the creativity, experimentation, and exploration that affords--is great in Hitman 3. It closes out the trilogy by brilliantly playing off everything that came before it
Coupled with extra gadgets (some of which can be imported - though not as swimmingly on PC), Hitman 3 is really fun to dive back into; or introduce someone to for that matter, just to see what they come up with. It's the little things that add up and really make Hitman 3 special.
Charting the series' progress since that 2016 Paris debut has been a fascinating journey. IO have learned a lot over the past five years and that really shows in Hitman 3. It's a flashier, more fluid evolution of IO's original template - a rewarding conclusion to one of the most unique video game franchises around, and one we'll continue playing for many weeks and months to come.
God is a Geek: 8.5/10
Hitman 3 is a satisfying farewell to Agent 47, with stunning locations, and endless opportunities to take out your targets.
Hitman is a world made up entirely of Chekhov’s guns, and it’s a blast finding out how to get Agent 47 into position to pull the trigger.
The locations and level designs in Hitman 3 are among the best IO Interactive have built.
Push Square: 9/10
On its own, Hitman 3 is a moody conclusion to a generation-defining trilogy, but when taken as a complete compilation, it's the ultimate stealth sandbox. IO Interactive has honed its gameplay formula to perfection, and it's on top form here
ACG (@Karak): Buy
Another fine outing for Agent 47, and a fitting, hopefully brief, farewell to one of the best stealth series of the last decade.
Press Start: 8.5/10
HITMAN III is a decidedly epic conclusion to the events established in the first two games. It offers fantastic, well-realised locales with objectives that are unconventional, at least by HITMAN standards, to come out feeling fresh. Though in pursuit of this, it has lost a bit of the breadth we've come to expect from the series. Ultimately, it delivers what it promised to - a strong conclusion to the trilogy.
