    Hitman (3) is back and made its way towards the PC. With improved graphics and completely new scenery, we'll look at the game PC graphics performance in a PC gamer way. We'll test the game on the PC...

    Agreed on your points regarding IOI...this is really despicable behaviour for them.

    This is glorified DLC, but at a premium price point of $60-$90 - unacceptable price gouging.

    The base game (Hitman 2016) should have been $40, and the DLC's of this 'world of assassination storyline' should not have cost more than $25, giving you an all-in of $65.

    I'm not impressed, and I own Hitman one and two.

    I was impressed with Hitman 1 (2016).
    2nd I didnt bother, maps looked small and as much I as wanted to play 2nd, would feel and literally in some missions walk as a clown.

    Actually the review made me laugh and I will follow advice.

    90 euros? A lot of things to buy with 90 euros. Maybe thats their new business model and how they get away from negative reviews. Ask for a ridiculous price, no one will even look at it, no one will write about it, hardcore fans might buy it and then slowly, over the year sell with discounts.

    I hope games don't take this path now where everything is shinny or overly reflective, I'm not liking it it at all.

    Never played a Hitman game although I think I got one for free on some giveaway.

    Interesting. There definitely seems to be a slot for an RTX3070 Ti.

    Seems like it runs nicely on many cards. Im glad they moved back on to dx12 even the first game already had it years ago.

    I must say I'm quite disappointed with "final words". I think your final conlusion is a bit shallow.It's been 4 years of hitman games and people still dont realise what you get with 6 levels in each game. An average gamer who likes stealth games can easily achieve 50-60hours of playtime in each game. Ask yourself, anyone who reads this. How many games in past years did you play which had almost zero bugs, tehnical issues and above else didn't have dogsh*t AI on release date? I think we should appriciate more what IO did with pc port, because there are less and less games with this kind of quality. I won't comment on epic game store fiasco with H2, that deserves another thread.

    I genuinely welcome your criticism on the conclusion. As a Hitman fan I can understand your sentiment. As a regular gamer however I find the 60 bucks to be far too much for what I deem to be a rather repetitive game that is too short. And no IO interactive did not create something bug-free, masses of people cannot log in since yesterday after importing their old savegames.

    Thanks for the review.

    Just thought I'd mention that the first paragraph has the sentence "We'll test the game on the PC platform relative to graphics card performance with the latest AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards." 3 times in a row.
