Hitman - Episode 5: Colorado
Top Critic Average
Not the best or most intricate level, but a welcome departure from previous episodes.
A slight improvement on the disappointing Bangkok level, but the lack of traditional Hitman thrills don’t make this a mission to remember.
In a way, even with their flaws, all of the maps so far have felt like they've added something to the overall package of Hitman outside of Colorado. I hope Japan is better, but Hitman even does filler right.
Although I won’t be making too many return visits, the incentive is still there to dive straight back in.
Hitman’s latest Colorado mission is quite a change up from the traditional classy missions seen earlier, but the new formula does not exactly work for 47. While the emphasis is on maximum stealth, there will be times where you just give up and shoot everyone.

The targets are harder to kill and the environment isn’t as pretty as previous missions, but Colorado offers excellent gameplay and tons of replayability.
You very rarely get to relax in Colorado. Someone’s always thinking about feeling your collar, and unlike some of the other maps, there’s almost nowhere to run away to if you get found out. The bastards are everywhere. It’s tenser and even more difficult than its predecessors as a result. This is much more of a pure stealth map.
Hitman: Episode 5 - Colorado may not be as impressive or vibrant as Sapienza or Bangkok, but it brings its own new take to the game. With a newfound focus on stealth, sniping, and uniforms, this latest mission does well to bring back memories of the sneakier Hitman of old, but some frustrations and annoyances due to the difficulty are present.
Not the most visually appealing episode, but Colorado has its own charms and sees the story come to the forefront, if a little too late to have the impact it desires.
The autumn trees and serene color palette that blends in with the military outfits was a welcome change of pace from the mansions and coastal riviera’s of past episodes.
