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. THE GAME As the name suggests you are a hitman. You go through various locations performing hit's on certain targets.
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 Money or Contracts. The basic premise is this: you are a genetically designed contract killer who, in the previous game apparently, wiped out all his other fellow clones.
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. What begins as a seemingly simple mission, killing a mafia don and rescuing Vittorio, rapidly becomes a globe-trotting adventure, where 47 will encounter all types of undesitrable men and women,...
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). I had spoken to friends about the game and about the style of the game and thought that I would invest in the triple pack. I only actually played Silent Assassin and decided not to continue with the second 2.
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! The beginning of the game sees 47, the main character working in an Italian monastry with a priest who has taken pity on him and l;ooks to proivde him with some form of redemption.
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. After going to confession a red car shows up outside and kidnaps his best and only friend leaving a note blackmailing him to do their dirty work.
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! The levels on Splinter Cell all looks the same and you go bored after a few hours, but with Hitman the same level can be completed in many different ways.
Pros: great graphics,very entertaining, nice sound
Excerpt: Hitman 2 : Silent Assassin has a fantastic storyline that really helped this game to greatness , it goes like this : agent 47 used to work as a hitman , he has returned to the right road and is best friends with a priest . Afetr he had an official confession that he had sinned . A few days later the priest is kidnapped .
Pros: Better than the original , fantastic weapon selection , every level is interesting
Excerpt: You are a special kind of man with a special kind of job. The only thing is this job is a secret that no one must no about until one day you have a confession to make. That’s right you control 47, a Hitman, an assassin to hire whose killing is needed more than ever, and when your friend Father Vittorio is kidnapped by a crime lord 47 is lured back into the web of deceit ready to put his life on the line to save his friend... and wipe out the world of crime.
Pros: very original, multiple ways to complete
Cons: will have you pulling your hair out in frustration
