Conclusion: However, if you love a fun game, with an insane story, then please pick this up, although, if you are too used to the ADD games of today, then you might be a little drawn back when you first start to play. However, in the end, this game is worth it.
Excerpt: It’s been over six years since Agent 47, the bald Hitman with a barcode on his head, last went on a killing spree and, in the intervening years since, the game’s industry has changed enormously.
