Hitman Review

The first ‘Hitman’ episode is a stunning, confident debut and I can’t wait for more

The first ‘Hitman’ episode is a stunning, confident debut and I can’t wait for more

I’m standing on a balcony, pistol drawn, waiting for the heat to die down. A photographer happened to see me knock out a male model and change into his clothes in broad daylight. Understandably frightened, she called to a nearby security guard, at which point I hightailed it back into the mansion and ran upstairs.

Not everyone had seen my disguise, so I managed to make it through the throngs of guests without being noticed. Unfortunately, as the guards began to spread the news that an intense-looking bald man was choking people into submission and undressing them, they started to search the mansion more thoroughly.

It didn’t take long before they stumbled upon the four or five other unconscious bodies I’d stashed in various lockers and side rooms. Needless to say, I’d failed my mission and it was time to start over. But the great thing about Hitman is that every failure feels like progress, as you learn more about the level every time you play.

‘The Division’: Ubisoft’s massive shooter could be the most ambitious game of 2016

‘The Division’: Ubisoft’s massive shooter could be the most ambitious game of 2016

The Division is a lot of things. First and foremost, it’s a competent, if unimaginative, third-person shooter. It’s an RPG as well, with plenty of loot to collect and experience to gain and skills to choose from. It also shares a great deal in common with the modern MMO, in that you’re never more than a few button presses away from teaming up with other players online.

This kitchen sink approach has doomed other equally ambitious games, but The Division manages to stay afloat, even underneath the weight of all the adjectives that describe it.

Unravel review: If Pixar made a game, it might look something like this

For years, Flower has been the game that I’ve shown friends and family when I want to prove to them that gaming isn’t all about shooting aliens and screaming at strangers over the Internet. Flower is beautiful, tranquil and meaningful, but after all these years, I think a new game has finally taken its place.

That game is Unravel. More →
