Hitman - Episode 4: Bangkok
Hitman Episode 4: Bangkok gets proceedings back on track after the somewhat bland Marrakesh malarkey of Episode 3. The Himmapan resort may lack the size and scope of Sapienza, and it isn’t quite the classic Hitman hotel level I was after, but it still boasts plenty of problem solving and murderous mayhem within its walls.
More good Hitman, although the repetition of style and presentation is taking the shine off the experience.
After three wonderful Episodes of Hitman, IO Interactive drops the ball by delivering a chunk of content that's not nearly as thoughtful as what came before. But even if this installment comes off as a little disappointing, you should still get some enjoyment out of it if you enjoyed Agent 47's previous 2016 adventures.
If I paid money for Hitman with just two packs to go (USA and Japan), I wouldn't feel slighted even if Bangkok and Marrakesh are weaker than the others. Diced up or whole, this can of blood-soaked tomatoes serves up so many experiences that aren't offered just about anywhere else outside of the original entries.
It’s far from being the crown jewel in this triumphant reboot, yet manages to pack in loads of fun things to see and do.
Hitman’s latest mission is fairly reminiscent of the more classic Hitman games, thanks to the extravagant hotel setup, and well guarded targets. However, due to some glitches, and some minor complications in gameplay, the latest mission just misses the target by a few inches.

Although the Hitman Bangkok mission isn’t as good as others, it’s still another solid entry into a well-crafted series -- providing stunning visuals and varied opportunities to kill.
A familiar setting makes for some excellent kills in Hitman's latest episode.
The fact that Squeenix are continuing to grant us the role of a surrogate James Bond in playgrounds as varied and swish as a luxury Thai hotel, is good enough for me.
Hitman: Episode 4 - Bangkok may be weaker than Sapienza, but by no means is it a bad addition. While the setting does feel a missed opportunity, the Himmapan Hotel is ripe with plenty of different kills, and the clandestine nature and harder difficulty makes it all the more interesting. The humour and comedy is excellent as always, and while it's not the strongest level, everything feels organic, and there are plenty of hidden kills. All in all, Bangkok puts Hitman one step closer to gaming Nirvana.
