Hokkaido is a confident and experimental end to a great season.

Hitman Episode 6: Hokkaido is one of the best levels this season and a great mission to end the year on. The map itself is very good, the atmosphere is excellent, and the hits are challenging. Tricky and more than a little James Bond-esque (the snowed-in private clinic has a real SPECTRE / On Her Majesty’s Secret Service vibe to it), Hokkaido is vintage Hitman at its most creative.

A much better map than the last two and amongst the best of the season, while still leaving you wanting even more from Hitman’s episodic exploits.

Hitman has been an uneven project (Marrakesh and Colorado were a cut below), but even at its worst it's still an above average stealth romp. It's been a long and laborious seven and a half month process with several delays to boot, but it's all here now, and worth picking up. Not to mention, Square Enix has done a noble job of actually updating the thing beyond DLC, fixing up several large glitches that plagued the first few episodes.

This sixth chapter of Hitman is a really good ending for this first season. In this chapter, the stealth is highly important and is more rewarding than complete and total action, just like in the old Hitman games.

Overall, this is a strong end to the series, taking one step towards a more difficult, more restrictive level design, but still with a certain leniency once you get past those barriers.

Hitman Episode 6 Hokkaido is a great ending to a series that started losing its touch a few missions down the line. A well detailed map with a very secret agent feel, and new challenges making the mission quite different are some of the few factors that make this episode one of the best of the series.

As a series finale, Hokkaido manages to succeed in almost every way, even if the story has a weak and unsatisfying end.

This is in bold contrast to previous episodes that featured a lot more strangling than pondering, and Hitman’s finale was better for it.

Hitman bows out with a strong finale in game terms, if not in story. A fine balance of claustrophobic level design and Hitman’s signature murder opportunities make for a fitting personification of all Hitman is and was.
