Conclusion: Okay lets start off with gameplay Fun. Exciting. Addictive. you can basically play the game with any style you want. Crazy mass murderer run and gun style or ninja like stealthy take downs Takes a while to play each level so you'll need some of those quick saves Once you learn where all the guys are its a bit easier though uhmm.. lots of guns keep the shooting interesting. The aiming mechanism is just free aim. You can aim wherever and it works good with this game.
Conclusion: Hitman 2 is an excellent game. As with all games in the Hitman series, there are many ways to take out your enemies and achieve your goals. Being able to kill folks and use their clothes for disguise purposes is great. The graphics are pretty good but not amazing. What I found surprising is that the cutscene graphics are actually better in Hitman 2 than in Hitman: Contracts. I enjoyed playing Hitman 2 a little more than Contracts also; somehow the story was better.
Excerpt: "...i got the newer version Hitman contracts. If the game was good i would buy contracts and if it was not up to standards i would not get contracts. And now sitting on my huge collection of games is Hitman: Contacts. The game involves you codename 47 to go through a set of missions assasinating various leaders. The gameplay is very good. I found myself playing the game in 4 hour shifts without realizing it. You can play the stealthy assassin ...
Summary: This is one of the best x box games I have ever played. It is jam packed with action. There are over 40 weapons to choose from, ranging from the simple but deadly fibre wire (strangulation cord ) to the ak assault rifle. I would recommend you buy this game, Overall this game does deserve the full 5 stars.
Summary: This game is incredable, i would say that it surpases splinter cell, and that is saying something. It really has amazing graphics, but you can also interact with the enemyies, you can take guards clothes for a disguise, take there weapons and also drag the bodies and hide them. The levels are huge, and there is never any specific way to hit someone (assasinate them).
Summary: Having recently bought an X-Box I was looking for games that challenged the mind as well as the fingers. Hitman 2 is just that. The graphics are very good and each mission does give you the atmosphere of the assassin, especially if you are found out! It's worth having the gamepad feedback on just for the effect of using the 'cheesewire' attack on your opponents.
At last, something other than a mindless shoot'em up!

Summary: Like others, I bought this game whilst waiting for splinter cell to come out. Boy, was I glad. In short, the graphics are excellent and the interaction with the environment is pretty good. The AI has also been given a tweak so that guards, targets etc. respond to noise (ie walking instead of sneaking) to ensure that every move must be planned with care (sometimes great care). The levels are large and can be completed in a number of ways according to taste. I.e.
Summary: This game is stunning!You can attempt your "hit" any way you like.You are briefed,given a choice of weapons you have acquired from previous missions then you are fee to tackle your mission.The graphics(especially the lighting)are excellent,the framerate is smooth and it features widescreen support!Also the in-game map greatly aids your mission.After you have attempted your first mission you will start thinking,"what if I did this or that?
Summary: I had no intention of buying this game initially as none of the reviews I'd read had given it a top rating. I wanted to save my pennies for the big upcoming games like Splinter Cell, Blinx, Unreal and the rest of the top scorers in the Christmas lineup. In a moment of weakness I decided to splurge and bought it after all. I was in no way disappointed.
