Hitman (2016) - Episode 29 - Down the Wrong Pipe

In our return trip to Marrakesh, we meet and murder new and fascinating people in the second of two Summer Bonus Episodes.

I've said Hitman is a lot of trial-and-error in the past, where players are supposed to poke around and learn what they are and are no able to do without getting caught. That means for every success, there are many, many failures. This episode and the next are really good examples of that.

As you can clearly see, I did not get the pass to the Shisha Bar on my first try. It took several attempts to get a working strategy going. Once I did though, it was pretty smooth.

I'm sure you've seen a number of Hitman players making a ton of top-tier plays that look absolutely effortless on their part. Getting to the point where one can make those impression plays is part of the joy of playing Hitman. In fact, practicing and redoing missions is most of the experience.

Even with the Elusive Targets, even if players can't redo them in order practice, they can still go in with all the knowledge accrued from playing the level previously in Story, Contracts, or Escalations.

There's a lot here, if players wish to dig deep into it.
