Summary: Another Hitman game that is about average... Hitman Contracts is fun to play, though seems a bit outdated compared to other Hitman games (Except the original Hitman and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. Those two games are timeless classics in my book). I don't have that much to add to the other reviews, suffice to say that this game is somewhat short, at least for me but as always, fun and challenging.
Summary: I dont think this is one of their "good" games.the graphics is really bad and its hard to see the words on the screen.it takes a while to seat there and read before you know your mission.The keys changed form the second game so you had to learn all over again.the missions are kind of boring in a way.I which i did not buy this game
Not for fans of Silent Assassin and Blood Money: An honest review.

Summary: First off, let me warn you that I haven't really composed my thoughts so this review may seem a bit all-over-the-place. I just felt I should say something after seeing all these misleading 5-star reviews. Those people aren't the real, hardcore Hitman fans. They're just into the running-and-gunning. I'm probably about halfway through the game right now and am really disappointed. I didn't realize this was literally a remake of Codename 47.
Lacks the length of first one, and not much improvement

Summary: I own and still enjoy playing the first Hitman on PS2. Contracts is not much of an improvement. In fact I like the controlls more on the first one. The game is a good sequel but not great. Rent before buying, and if you like the first one then definitely rent it.
Summary: good game to say the least controls are hard to cope with and sometimes you wish you could order the hit on yourself to end the misery of the game play haah but a must buy for any fan of the franchise
Summary: Sorry but I have to drop the rating here. Games these days have moved on leaps and bounds with brilliant graphics, intelligent gameplay and great sound. But all this is at the expense of a truly long-lasting game. I remember playing Frontier Elite 2 on PC which effectively was endless. Every now and then I still play it years after I first bought it and it's still good. Hitman Contracts is too short, as has been pointed out - 12 levels completed in 5 days.
Summary: This isn't a bad game. It's not a great game either and that's the problem. Whilst I was entertained for an afternoon, Hitman covers the same sort of ground as Tenchu, the Metal Gear series and of course Splinter Cell. However, where each of these games are supremely innovative in terms of game-play, atmosphere and sheer concept, with Hitman you feel like you've done it all before and quite honestly when you're parting with your hard earned cash you could be forgiven for...

Summary: I got this not long after it came out, i borrowed Hitman 2 from a friend and loved every minute of it. Theres always gonna be a surefire hit with a game that places you as a ruthless and extremely cool secret assassin. So on to this one, to begin with i hated it, i thought it was completely dull, boring impossible and an utter disappointment after Hitman 2.
