Fight your way through battles going from urban combat in a besieged French city to open spaces in the Italian Alps or frantic combats in the Arabic sand dunes. Experience large-scale battles as infantry or piloting vehicles on land, air and sea, from the tanks and bikes on the ground, to bi-planes and gigantic battleships.
When Agent 47 joins the ICA to hunt down threats to mankind, he is also pulled into a game of Cat and Mouse against a mysterious organization that is determined to stop him. All the while he is being stalked by someone from his past.
I was never a fan of the developer Rebellion and also never played a game in this series. This one is supposed to be a quality leap for the franchise and the basic idea is rather interesting too. I can't say that I have a truly negative opinion of the game but it turned out to be the budget PC shooter (I played on Xbox One) I expected. The large levels aren't all that detailed in terms of design and the game itself comes off as an HD re-release of a 1 decade old 360 game. It's rather short too and clearly finished level are now expanding it quickly though paid DLC. The story/presentation is also barely there but who cares. I can see some of the game's unique appeal, the gore is quite impactful too, but way better stealth games crowd the market in the end. I can thus only recommend the game to pre-existing fans and I now sampled all I need from this series. 6/10
