Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
14 July 2004
Excerpt: Do you remember Hitman: Codename 47 released two years ago? Yeah this game wasn't bad so I'm glad that the original Hitman is back with the sequel. Once again you will assume the role of Agent 47, a skilled assassin who is rewarded for completing contract killings as cleanly as possible, without hurting innocent civilians or being caught. The story of Hitman 2 begins in a Sicilian monastery.
Excerpt: Early on, there is a scene in Hitman 2 where we see the genetically engineered assassin, 47, in plain clothes, outside of his trademark suit and praying for redemption for the sins he has committed. It's a great touch to the overall narrative because it illustrates character growth in someone who found out he was but one of many identical assassin replicates; the 47th one to be exact. So the story begins with 47 confiding his past to Padre Vittorio.
Excerpt: After two years of silence Mr Charming himself has returned, the guy we also know as 47. Hitman 1 was one of 2000’s more memorable games; because it let us assassinate people with a whole lot more depth and realism than what similar games could offer. Never before did we have to plan an assassination as much, and because of that Hitman 1 was also a very difficult game at times.
Conclusion: Scenery, draw distance, locations are all marvelous - easily the best bit of the programming. You will wonder at skyscrapers, shiver in snow and almost smell market places, however this means you may have to tweak the settings a little, if you have an older PC.
Pros: The old silenced pistol shot to the back of the head.
Excerpt: Il y a dix ans, Sony débarquait sur le marché des consoles de salon avec la Playstation. A ce moment là, les deux principaux acteurs, Sega et Nintendo, se partageaient le gâteau. Depuis, beaucoup d'eau a coulé sous les ponts, l'un a mordu la poussière, l'autre se récupère une réputation d'amuseur d'enfants et on en arrive à cette situation connue de tous : Sony s'est très bien installé sur le marché.
