Excerpt: "...person in question. The gameplay in Hitman isn't run and gun, it requires careful thought throughout and you have to be patient. Garroting a guard to steal his uniform to get into a party so you can assassinate the host is one of the most thought out things that I have ever done. For that reason, I cannot say a bad thing about the gameplay, for it is fantastic and makes you think, unlike the current game market. Graphically, for such an old game, ...
Pros: You have to think, It's a different style of gameplay, It's a long game
Cons: It's difficult, Some may find the idea of assassinating people immoral .
Excerpt: "...to the much loved original Hitman 2 offers much of the same. The hushed rumor that is agent 47 comes out of retirement to once again take on the role of paid assassin. Gameplay and tactics are very much identical to the 1st with only a few minor changes. Missions still involve scouting out locations and figuring out where the target is going to be at certain times and figuring out what would be the best way to kill them and escape unnoticed. Fans ...
Pros: stealth, tactics, lots of different ways to complete a mission
Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin (PC): Better than Hitman 1
15 December 2009
Summary: Hitman 2 is the great follow up to the impressive if flawed Hitman. It improves on the original game in a lot of ways, yet is still sufficiently challenging and packed with exciting and intense moments. That said, it is an acquired taste to a certain extent, although those who appreciate intelligent, cerebral, strategic gaming should find this a load of fun.
Summary: You can tell that Hitman 2 isn´t exactly a tranquil game judging by it´s cover with a bald sharply dressed man carrying a hardballer pistol in each hand. Hitman 2 Silent Assassin has been released for PC, Playstation and Xbox platforms. Clearly shown by it´s name, Hitman 2 is the sequel of the game released 2 years prior to this one and featured some undeniably impressive technical elements, but it also had a number of serious problems.
Excerpt: "...for success was Thief, but Hitman seems to have brought a new meaning for stealth. Silent Assassin didn't seem like it was that much stealth based compared to the first game as I was able to go through all the enemies with no stealth at all, even if I had to get the label of a mass murderer in the game. But the game was good in both ways, and as Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money are already released, there is no doubt about the fact that there ...
Pros: graphics, stealth, music, gameplay
Cons: need some better AI and suspicion meter should be better too
Excerpt: "...Ladies and Gentleman your favourite Hitman is back the one, the only, MR 47! And this time he means BUISSNESS! The hired gun man with a sense of loyalty as he works his way through with a blinding mastery of weapons and thoroughness of ground work. He has faith.In God? But carry a loaded gun? Track down the ones that force your retirement and seek vengence. Watch your back surprises are around every corner. You start off in the lovely churchyard ...
Pros: Very fun and brilliant graphics
Cons: Saving and loading points and poor audio effects
Summary: Hitman 2, suprisingly a successor to Hitman, caught my eye because of the genre of game that it appeared to be. Taking on the role of a stealthy, silent and unknown hitman seemed the perfect way to spend my evenings. The first thing to note aobut this game is the prescence of an initial "training level", to familiarise the user with the controls.
Excerpt: "...anybody who played the original Hitman will notice and appreciate the changes in gameplay. The concept of Hitman 2 is simple. In each mission the player is required to eliminate one or more human targets as well as complete various other tasks. The way each mission is completed is up to the player, with different methods requiring different levels of skill. For example, the first mission sees Mr 47 (the player character) embarking upon a mission ...
Pros: Satisfyingly tricky and good graphics
Cons: Easy to complete and some poor gunfire sound effects
