Ranking the Hitman games from best to worst

6. Hitman: Sniper (2015)

This guy is about to have an accident…


This mobile game lets you play as Agent 47, sniping you victims from afar. Perched on a hillside, you’ve got to take out a series of targets in an apartment complex. Shooting a glass railing will make your target fall to his death… Likewise, you can draw a guard’s attention by shooting a car, thereby triggering an alarm.

Someone walking by a pool can be shoot in the head (and you can gain extra precision by pressing the lung icon onscreen, thereby holding your breath). If the body falls in the pool it may stay hidden for a while, and not draw attention, adding to your score…

The fact there is only one level is something of a bummer though, but the tactical and puzzle-like challenges on offer here (such as having to kill enemies in specific ways, like causing explosions), plus the weapons upgrades and special abilities mean this is a Hitman game that will keep you going for a while.

Came out on: iOS and Android.
