Hitman Strikes Again!createfineline | Aug. 23, 2014 | See all createfineline's reviews »
Like many of you, the Hitman series gives fond memories of sneaking and waiting just to achieve the perfect kill. Sure enough, you can go with guns blazing and allow the entire screen filled with bodies flurried around. However, when you wait for those precious seconds while your target is turned around just to get that 'silent, but deadly' kill shot, the reward is far more satisfying. In this iteration, Agent 47 is a much more capable assassin with purchasable upgrades earned by ratings on previous levels. Yet, he is much more vulnerable to gun fire making even mass murderers more prudent over how they engage the level. The locales of your hits are far more expansive allowing the player to use their wits to engage their target and, often times, multiple targets setup in a single level. Should you wait until the target is alone to make your kill or simply poison his drink for when he finally takes a swig? If all else fails, you can use your trusty ballers that easily create that one-two punch. The AI in this game has improved greatly since the first Hitman, with the locals reacting much more realistically to sounds of gun fire or the sight of blood. Some will even have the nerve to grab a fallen pistol and shoot at you if they fill threatened. There will be some awkward animations such as characters getting stuck in a slot machine for the Las Vegas level or others quickly shrugging off the sight of dead bodies once they report their findings to the police, but there seems to be a near-perfect balance between reality and pure stealth gameplay. The story is far more interesting this time around with an overall narrative filling in the gaps between missions. You will travel to Paris, Chile, the Mississippi River, and many others that all fill distinct from each other. Entering a Paris opera house, for example, provides elegant backgrounds filled with tourists and French guards that are in direct contrast to settings in Las Vegas that are first spotlighted with a golden hue of glamour that quickly turn dark and dreary once you enter the underbelly. You can't mention the Hitman series without talking about replay value. There are so many ways to go through a single level that I found myself constantly replaying certain levels just to see if things could have turned out differently. One advice I can give is to not use any guides. There may be some frustration when you are spotted multiple times requiring you to restart the game, but once you figure out a setup to your liking, you can't help but pat yourself on the back when your reach the end of the level
Best Series!DarkSparda | Aug. 7, 2014 | See all DarkSparda's reviews »
Entire Hitman Series are full of fun. If you love to be stealthy and sneak up to people, then this game is meant for you. Its not only about sneaking around, its has so much more. You can go into open conflict, drug/poison people, use sniper to hunt down your targets, use C4 charges and grenades.
Hitman series had always great graphic and gameplay.
Its a must play game!

Hitman is a game that involves a bit of planning and sneaking around. You take down people, steal their clothes, and plan your hit. Blood Money is a great deal of fun, especially when you're hanging out in a tree house trying to snipe your target. Then there's mowing down thousands of pedestrians during a Mardi Gras map (though they really cut back the quality of the NPCs there).
Each mission takes place on it's own map, but you spend time at your base between missions to prepare. You can explore the maps to find any number of advantages, even finding ways to use the environment to do the job for you.
The money you earn from missions can be used to bribe witnesses or customize weapons, but you get penalized for being sloppy. Killing NPCs who aren't targets, leaving your suit or weapons behind, and other various things hurt your score at the end of the map.
This is my favorite game in the Hitman series, even including the newest one. I might be biased because it was my first Hitman game, though.I thoroughly enjoyed planning every move, from the assassination to the escape..

Hitman Blood Money it´s the 4th game of the Hitman franchise, and so far, the best one. Gameplay evolved to become more harder, maps are huge, and the AI more dangerous than previous installments. No matter if you choose being a brutal maniac, killing everything in your way, a silent assassin, or maybe both things, you´re gonna have to work harder if you want to get the mission done.
It may have passed too many years after his launch, but if you like stealth-games, you have to get this on your collection
The ultimate refinement of the Hitman series!Shaheed_Jamal | April 16, 2014 | See all Shaheed_Jamal's reviews »
If you want to know how it feels like to be a professional killer roaming the streets of America, this is the game for you. Join 47 as he travels across America as he takes on a rival organization that has been assassinating members of his agency!
The graphics are great as they run a smooth 60 FPS on the PC. I'm not a fan of the new art style, but it gets the job done. The art design is fantastic as it makes you feel like you've been in the locations set in the game in real life as well.
Sound : 5 I did not like the sound in this game. It felt dull and muted when compared to the masterful sound design of Hitman: Contracts.
Gameplay: 10 This is the best-playing game in the series. You can use distraction techniques like throwing coins to distract enemies and poison drinks to incapacitate or kill your targets.
Lifespan: 10 The game can be played for hundreds of hours with a dozen ways to complete each mission.
