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: Any gmaers used to the the intuitve contol system of MGS2 or GTA3 will find this game frustrating. The user interface for changing weapons is unnessararily complictated and clumsey. The game itself promises much. But I found the movement of the central character far too slow. Another big negative is the sniper rifle - it doesn't have an accurate zoom function (like in MGS2 or GTA3). Instead it has 3 different zoom ranges - like a cheap camera.
