Summary: Hitman seemed like it was going to be lots of fun until It took me 6 hours out of one day just to try to attempt to beat the first mission. I got it this morning and will be trading it in tomorrow. Just for the record I still have not assassinated the Don in the first mission. This game will frustrate you to the point of migraine and that's not something I'd like to endure in my leisure time.
Summary: this game is not fun at all. why is it the trend nowadays for games to be boring and extremely difficult???? the controlling sucks. how are you supposed to move forward with one joystick, turn with the other, and shoot with another button all at the same time?? this game is reatrded and a waste of money.
Summary: I liked the original Hitman, but this game really disappoints. The majority of missions can only be beat be doing something, dying, then doing something different, etc. Since there are a limited number of saves this requires that you do the same thing over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over ... That's not a video game. It's a job. Lame.
Summary: Initially it will appear to be a great game which will keep you glued to your pc for hours. You will play missions several times because you continue to fail them. You try shooting quicker, later, taking different routes etc. until you find the path that was meant to be taken. There in lies the problem, there is pretty much a set path you must take to complete the missions. On about the sixth mission, I have tried absolutely everything and cannot pass it.
I see no reason for anyone to make a game like this.

Summary: Being a spy is one thing, but being a hitman is another. A hitman is not a good idea for a Video Game hero. The game looks like ... as well. You kill someone and you have to hide their body so no one sees it. What about that huge blood mess you made on the ground. Oh well if anyone sees it they'll just think someone spilled their fruit punch all over the ground and forgot to wipe it up. What a stupid game. Give me a break.
