Summary: This is a very solid game. I can only find 2 downsides. First, stealth is optional for a while. I just killed everyone in sight and beat the level with ease. I'm not sure if that's bad or good.
Excerpt: I've just started going back to the Playstation 2 and getting round to playing some games that have been sat in a drawer for years, starting with this one. I remember playing the first Hitman in the series and enjoying it so was really looking forward to this one and I was not disappointed.
Pros: Good range of locations and difficulty of levels
Excerpt: This was the first time I had played a Hitman game and, having just completed it tonight after owning it for about a year and playing it a bit at a time, I can honestly say that it is a very rewarding gaming experience that would certainly make me want to go out and buy either of the sequels- Blood...
Excerpt: Hitman 2 is one of those games in which anything is truly possible. The player controls the mysterious Mr. 47, an ex-hitman who has been lured back to his old life by ruthless mafia dons who wish to have money from him and have taken 47's best friend, Father Vittorio, hostage.
Pros: Open - ended gameplay, good set of weapons, good story
Cons: Harsh difficulty settings near the end of the game
Excerpt: Hitman 2:Silent Assassin, a sequel to a game I had never actually seen before this one. And I only really noticed this one recently because it was part of a triple pack (along with Contracts and Blood Money).
Excerpt: Hitman 47 is as messy as a magnum through the head at point blank range. Whilst Hitman had a rather limited storyline, the storyline in Silent Assassin is as cliched as it is convulted and dull. Russian terrorists-...have stolen a nuclear warhead! WOW!
Pros: Being a hitman, atmposheric music
Cons: Substandard graphics, poor AI, limited strategy too difficult
Excerpt: The star of the game is "47", a clone hitman. (The name "47" comes from the barcode on the back of his head). In this second installment of the Hitman games, we see 47 at the start as a reformed man, living with a vicar in a church.
Pros: Free roaming, You choose how to reach your goal
Excerpt: I happened to buy Splinter Cell and Hitman 2 at the same time. Splinter Cell because it's, well, the stealth game that was most popular at that time. I had not played any of the hitman games and knew little about it. But anyway one of my friends convinced me to buy that one too. And what a game!
Pros: great graphics,very entertaining, nice sound
