Hitman 2 • Completed The Ark Society • 20G • 5.75% of gamers unlocked this
Apparently I was closer to the end of Hitman 2 than I realised … the final mission in the ‘destinations’ list was actually just the special sniper challenge location … so following a brief jaunt around suburban Virginia, I went to a small island castle, burned one twin and threw another off a balcony, and then made the head of “shadowy organisation name goes here” (I haven’t really been following the story very well) down to the wharf.
It was a satisfying final mission, but because I thought there was one more, it didn’t ‘feel’ final. I have to say though, there were a couple of story beats in these final two missions that showcase exactly how good not only the narrative but the level design has become in Hitman. It is, undoubtedly, the gaming equivalent of ‘onions have layers, ogres have layers.’
Now I have a proper first gaming world problem … push on with some fantastic achievement double-dipping in Hitman 2, or head back to the Wild West and continue the Red Dead story.
To be honest, I’m worried about falling too far behind the rest of the Internet when it comes to game completion – even when I was reading about this achievement tonight and seeing Maka91 had completed Hitman 2 a few days ago irked me. Yes, I know, I’m a fickle man.
I’ll revisit the Hitman 2 achievement list in about a week when Sean Bean drops in as the new Elusive Target, but until then … I have horses to ride and feuding families to sort out. Giddyup.
