Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin (PS2): I would like to introduce Agent 47...
9 July 2013
Summary: In late 2002, Square Enix bought out the sequel to 'Hitman: Codename 47'. This stealth based action thriller, fronted by the bald and deadly assassin, Agent 47. But was it all just hiding in the shadows or a game which excites you from start to finish... Story: Agent 47, a former top assassin, has left that old life behind and gone to find peace at a church in Sicily.
Summary: This is my favourite Hitman game so far until the release of Absolution! This provides more accessibility and more options than Contracts and Blood Money, considering that Contracts and Blood Money are still good Hitman games. Lots of weapons, infiltrating restricted areas with disguises, using strategy and methods to evade or eliminate your enemies is what makes Hitman the original and ultimate assassin.
Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin (PS2): A shooty stealth em up that rarely gets boring.
25 February 2010
Summary: My oh my. The amount of fun I've had with this game is beyond belief. Let me start with the character himself. Just being Agent 47 is cool. He looks cool, he kills cool, he oozes cool. The sharp combination of black, white and red clothes look stylish, and he knows it too, judging by his walking. The soundtrack is probably the greatest game soundtrack ever.
Pros: Play the game your way, large amount of levels, good plot, silent but deadly main character.
Cons: A.I is a bit dodgy at times, your cover can be blown easily on higher difficulties.
Do you have what it takes to be a Silent Assassin?

Summary: I remember when I first saw the trailer for this game when I was about 10 years old. I hadn't heard of 'Hitman' before, but I really liked the look of the game . At the time, I was into recklessly shooting and killing people (GTA with all cheats possible on!) and so I bought it soon after it was released. Of course, when I got onto the game, I turned all cheats on, and spent a reasonable amount of time shooting unlimited amounts of ammo, nailing enemies to walls.
Pros: Great gameplay; massive replay value; interesting storyline; good soundtrack
Cons: Quite a few glitches; you need a lot patience
Excerpt: "...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. ...
Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin (PS2): The Hitman and Her.....
27 November 2008
Summary: 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.
Pros: One of the best games I have played on PS2; need to get one of the sequels now....
Cons: Your character is a baldy bonce! No but seriously, can't think of any....
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 ...
Pros: Open - ended gameplay, good set of weapons, good story
Cons: Harsh difficulty settings near the end of the game
Summary: the 1st ever hitman i bought was this one in 2002 and since then ive been hooked and i now own all 4 of his journeys, and all 4 of his journeys are simply BRILLIANT! but my all time favourit is hitman2: silent assassin just because of those hard packing dual silenced silverballers, and the gameplay's reality to the real world is quite breath taking, this simply deserves 10*'s along with tomb raider legend, hitman contracts and blood money.
Summary: This game pretty much picks up where the earlier one left off . But that is jsut where all the similarity ends. The graphics , gameplay , sound and the overall look and feel of the game has improved. Trigger happy gamers be warned this gmae is not for you. Although you can go gung ho though all the levels , the ultimate goal of the game is to achieve the silent assassin rating !! And this adds to the games replay value .
Summary: It can be very challenging but it's so good. If you love Hitman-like stuff you'll love this. The guns, sound effects, music, graphics, everything about this game is good. Highly recommended. Also check out Contracts and Blood Money. The Hitman series is great.
