Thanks to the imprecision of its shooting controls and the cheap behaviour of its AI, I could never really develop any confidence in Tokyo 42's frustrating combat. Which is a shame because, glitches aside, I really loved exploring the wonderfully crafted world and the simple yet still challenging nature of its stealth-based assassinations. This tiny hitman game dresses smart, packs the right kind of ammunition and certainly aims its sights high, it just doesn't quite nail the execution.

Beautiful, strange and sometimes a bit fiddly, Tokyo 42 offers a dazzling toybox to explore.

An intricate, beautiful playground for some enjoyably open-ended assassinations.

This beautiful cyberpunk playground holds a staggering amount of detail but not enough reasons to stay.
