Summary: Hitman:Contracts is my faverite "Hitman" game,its not a full sequel to Hitman 2:Silent Assasin. What i didn`t like about Hitman 2 is that it was slow-paced,you had to press L2 to actually run,and was VERY difficult to sneak up on a target/guard. The graphics are improved,although when you go into FPS mode-Agent 47`s hand and gun look AWFUL!
Summary: I really liked Hitman 2 (PS2), so i decided to check out "Contracts". They definitely made a lot of improvements in the gameplay. There's more freedom and more attack options. Also the realism and detail is noticably better. My only complaint is that some of the levels are pretty lame. Infact, 2 of them are nearly identicle. However, there are still a few really awesome levels. "The Meat King's Party" is a good example of a decent one...
Summary: This game beats the other Hitman games in every category. It sounds better the graphics are just plain out awesome even for todays standards. Even the gameplay itself improved. This game is not for people who get frusturated easily. Trust me. This game gets very hard and confuseing. You'll end up finding yourself getting killed a lot and you just plain out don't know where to go or what to do. The levels have incredible detail and are very well made.
Summary: The reason I enjoyed Hitman: Contracts so immensely was because of the fact that thought, stealth, and careful planning were needed to complete each mission satisfactorily. The Hitman series offers a stealth/shooter gameplay that deviates from the regular and unfortunately common linear, shooting-fest type gameplay. (Medal of Honor, Half-life). In Hitman, you have the option of gunning through each mission to get the job done, but the game won't be satisfying at all.
Summary: If you like Hitman 2: Silent Assassin then you are going to like this game. The developers improved on the graphics but that is about it. The guns are basically the same and the levels seem very similar to me. They also went a little far with the gore on this game. I'm not whining but it is a little overboard. I would actually be embarrassed if my wife came in when I was playing some levels.
Summary: hm contracts is a massive improvement over silent assassin, the graphics can now be classed as good, great even, i was impressed with the rain and snow effects and the textures are of a much higher quality, particular mention must also go to the improved polygon models. the levels play like a greatest hits album, no pun intended, i have to say i liked the missions alot, they are all well chosen and mostly well designed.
Summary: This a favorite of mine because it is the first Hitman game to use improvised weapons and with its updated disguise system a sure fire for stealth game enthusiasts. This is a vast inprovement on the first game and better than the second. The sniper system is fantastic a great tool to use on the game and better still because this is basically a remake of the first Hitman i recommend it.
Summary: Right from the offset when you train to be a hitman you realise that this is a very stylish game indeed. The beauty of this game over the sequel is that you can either be a hitman carefully executing kills, or more often than not you can go in guns blazing, which in my view makes it vastly superior to its sequel.
