There's another new assassination in this year's HITMAN: Marrakesh (aka a Gilded Cage).

How can things get any better for Square Enix? The daunting remake of Final Fantasy VII into an episodic All My Children adventure has put them on every shit list imaginable. Rumors of a declawed Wolverine and a cavalcade of watered down X-Men appearing in Kingdom Hearts 3 is about as bottom as a trip to rehab with Dr. Drew.

Hitman is shaping up to be a great new addition to the franchise. And the episodic method is working surprisingly well for it. There's still a pretty limited set of content, but it's so much easier to focus on all the many little things in any given stage when I'm not simply moving on to the next and the next to get to the end of the game. I'm thoroughly enjoying the challenges they've set up.

The new Hitman, following after Absolution, goes back to its open-ended roots, while still working to spin a tale alongside the contracts. It starts off with a tutorial that's supposed to be a prequel to the entire series, while the rest is a sequel to the existing series.
