Summary: I found CONTRACTS a let down after playing Hitman 2. Hitman 2 is better in every catagory. The violence depicted in CONTRACTS is over the top even for an assassin game, the scenes and locations are cluttered, and the picture is clouded and blurry like an episode of Moonlighting. Rent it or better yet borrow it before you buy it.
Summary: I loved Hitman 2 but I was a bit dissapointed in Hitman Contracts for all the same reasons most of the people here said.... same missions repeated, no new improvments. The music and story line were way better in Hitman 2. Other then that the graphics are a little more tweeked and the AI is a little better this time around, it's just a rehash of the previous Hitman games and deffinetly not as fun to play as the others were.
I thought sequels were supposed to be improvements

Summary: As a huge fan of Hitman 2: Silent Assasins, I was very eager to play Hitman Contracts. After beating the game in about 3 days, I am hugely disappointed. There are about half as many levels as the previous game, and all of them seem like they are on the same location. In Hitman 2 there were many different environments and locations, with many different types of enemies. In Contracts all of the levels feel the same, and all of the enemies are practically clones.
Summary: I bought this game after buying the popular Hitman 2 game. I thought the previous game was great so I bought this one. Now I played the game the graphics were excellent the storyline was gory but good. Until I got to the 3rd level yes I said the 3rd. I played it a few times nearly completed it but I couldn't stand the game any more. I have never played it since and neither has 2 of my friends that also have it.
Summary: This game is the most disapointing game that i have seen in a long time. With all the hype this game has created to be quite honest this isnt all that its cracked up to be. The graphics of the game are diapointing compared to its rivals like Vice city. The story lines on most of the levels are crap and the maps and set up is pritty rubbish to. If your buying the game for the type go ahead. But if its for the graphics DONT BUY IT!!!!
Summary: Der Titel ist für seine Zeit in grafischer Hinsicht gelungen und das Spielprinzip ebenso. Jedoch geht durch die miserable KI jeder Spielfluss verloren.Einerseits sind die Gegner saudumm oder(was häufiger zutrifft) oberschlau und können durch Wände und um Ecken herumschauen,oder sehen einen Kill durch Schneegestöber obwohl niemand in unmittelbarer Nähe ist. Eins der wenigen Spiele wo mir die Lust auf das durchspielen genommen wurde.
