Excerpt: "INTRO: Hitman III: Contracts makes little effort to disguise its name, but why should it? It’s bloody brutal and cunning and mostly straightforward, like the title. For those of you who don’t know this is the next in the line of the greatly mediocre series of Hitman games, the last being 'HITMAN 2 : SILENT ASSASIN' This came out in 2002 and they revolve around you, playing agent 47 who believe of not is a hitman hired to do various contracts ...
Pros: Decent stealth action, when on the harder settings, some nice weapon choices, non linear gameplay .
Cons: Hardly any different from Hitman2 and now its looking a little dated, Poor AI .
Summary: The story line for this game was great it reviews his past missions. The graphis werte superb and the guns got better. But the game was for lack of a better word good. Not great not fantastic. The game is not worth 50$ it is worth 30 or 20 but not 50. The controls are bad too. The people who made the game should have left the orginal setup alone but if you do buy the game the training i would reccomend.
Summary: I happen to believe that the hitman series is one of the most phenominal series in existance. That said, this game was overall a dissapointment. I have played the first two games and here is what it comes down to: When we were first introduced to "Tobias Reaper" aka 47 in the first hitman game the idea was ahead of its time in the sense that while almost every aspect of the game was great the only problem was that the graphics were mediocre at best. Even for its time.
Summary: I won't waste your time with talk about graphics, etc. Because we know they are awesome. I am a huge fan of the cold and methodical character known as Agent 47. But on this outing the writers went with the old 'each mission is a piece of his memory' leading up to the present. This is a notch above using time travel as an easy wrap-up to the story --but it's still a tired plot device.
Summary: This was a real disappointment. Having been a huge fan of Hitman 1 & 2, I was highly anticipating Contracts. What really confused me, was why IO/Eidos decided to remake most of Hitman 1. About 4 different missions in Contracts are remakes of the Hong Kong stages of the 1st game. Sorry, but when almost half the game is just a rip of the first, it just ruins the experience.
Summary: First off, parents be advised this is a review for a Mature game. While I can't claim that Hitman contracts is a remake of Hitman 1 and ignores Hitman 2, as a previous reviewer said, I think, Contracts looks too much like Hitman 1 to make Hitman 2 tower above both and be a league of its own. Pros for Contracts: 1. Agent 47 sneaks and runs faster. 2. Seemingly harmless objects like a pillow, can become a deadly weapon! 3.
Summary: I haven't played Hitman 1 or 2, so this is the first in the series for me. So far (I'm around 50% done) the game has been fairly enjoyable. Decent graphics, decent level design, good music and sound--all the usuals from a solid PC title. I can't recommend this game at its current price, however (worthy of a purchase at around 20 or 25 USD). For those PC gamers with a less-than-stellar setup, this is a sensible purchase and should run well.
Summary: There are really only two major improvements over Hitman 2 in this game. You can sneak much faster in this game. Being very slow in sneak mode in the previous two games was a frustration. The weapons are also much better. There are more of them and they are more realistic. This game is by far the most realistic of the three games. There are so many things that are worse than Hitman 2. I have so many complaints, especially after so much anticipation for this game.
Summary: This game was more of a sequel to the first hitman, which I wasn't much of a fan, and completely ignores Hitman 2. If you are a fan of the first, you will probably like the third. But for those like me that logged 2000+ hours playing hitman 2, this game is somewhat of a disappointment. The negatives If you are using an intel graphics chipset, they lack "Hardware Transform and Lighting" which prevents you from seeing the walls and floors.
Excerpt: Då var det dags igen. Dags att dra på sig finkostymen, lackskorna och åka ut och mörda folk världen över. Den här gången kommer resan att ta dig till bl.a. Rumänien, Paris, Sibirien och Kina. I första uppdraget börjar man på ett dårhus. Uppdrag: Ta dig ut. I gångarna ligger lik av klonade agenter, dårar vinglar runt och själv går man som om man vore full också.
Pros: Nya äventyr med Agent 47 . Variationen på uppdrag .
Cons: Seg kontroll, mindre engagerande än Silent Assassin/ Blood Money
