Summary: I found this game quite interesting. It seems as the game ended as if it could go on so there may be a sequel. I would recommend this game along with the two previous games in the series. This game is for people that are into action, adventure, and shooter games.
Pros: Great graphics, sounds, and lights.
Cons: Some good stuff was removed from previous games.
Excerpt: There's a lot of talk these days about how games can offer players various routes or paths to get from one place to another, making the gameplay non-linear. The theory goes that if you let the player choose between two paths, then they feel more responsible for the outcome. In Hitman: Contracts, the idea of "paths" hardly exists. There are so many ways in and out of rooms that calling them "paths" seems like dated terminology.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: All the same though, Hitman Contracts is a worthwhile purchase, and one that fans of the series should pick up without hesitation. For the rest of us, enjoyment of Contracts boils down to how much effort you want to put in. If revisiting levels to achieve higher scores is something you'd rather do without, then Hitman was never the game for you, and Contracts does nothing to sway your opinion.
Excerpt: Everyone's favorite bald-headed assassin is back for his third outing in Hitman: Contracts, a game that's especially recommendable to fans of 2002's Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, because the gameplay and a lot of the visuals simply haven't changed in this latest installment. Danish developer Io Interactive created a memorable character and some impressive technology with its original Hitman game, but not till the sequel did the gameplay live up to the graphics.
Excerpt: It looks like Agent 47 is back for another outing and isn’t done getting vengeance on his enemies. The bald shiny head and bar code return for Eidos’ third installment, Hitman: Contracts. Hitman is one of the most highly regarded franchises around, not because of the technical ingenuity, but for its style that has influenced some other highly praised games, such as Splinter Cell.
Conclusion: Leider sorgen die zusammenhanglosen Einsätze, die spartanische Storyline und der geringe Umfang dafür, dass Hitman: Contracts auf mich eher wie ein Vollpreis-Update mit neuen Missionen, statt wie ein echtes Sequel wirkt. Zudem wurden latente Gameplay-Schwächen wie das häufige Zurückgreifen auf Trial & Error-Elemente nicht ausgemerzt und sorgen für unnötige Frustmomente. Dennoch: Wem Hitman 2 gefiel, dem kann man auch den Nachfolger guten Gewissens empfehlen.
Conclusion: Natürlich muss man sich an die Spielidee gewöhnen. Nüchtern betrachtet kann Hitman: Contracts aber dank der guten Levels und dem tollen Ambiente überzeugen. Es macht schon riesigen Spaß durch die großen Spielabschnitte zu laufen um Feinde zu erledigen. Das Spiel wird übrigens ungeschnitten und komplett in deutscher Sprache verkauft. Ihr kommt also in den vollen Spielgenuss. Wer es nicht ganz so brutal mag darf das Blut auch herunter drehen.
