Still the Best Hitman Game I've PlayedJamfrost | April 1, 2014 | See all Jamfrost's reviews »
My only issue was with the ending in terms of how difficult it was for me. The rest of the game was incredibly solid and fun.
You can customize your loadouts and decide what kind of hitman you were going to be. A murderer that eliminates all living things or a silent assassin that melts back into the shadows after neutralizing the target.
To give you an example of how flexible this game can be for different people, there is a theater level in the game (plays not movies) where there are two targets for Agent 47 to eliminate. You could cause an accident and make it seem like you were never there at all. You could bring a sniper rifle and show everyone who's boss. You could wear a disguise and maybe make it more personal.
In my case, I took a suppressed pistol, worked my way to the top floor and took out both targets with a headshot (one on stage and the other in a balcony) and quickly made my way out with no one having an idea of what just happened. In and out in only a few minutes.
Due to the various approaches and methods a person can employ, the replay value of this game stands strong.
The only things holding this game back are the aging graphics and difficult ending. Otherwise, you're left with a game that truly lets you become an assassin, a psycho, or anything in-between. It's up to you.
Still the best...Arteus | Feb. 11, 2014 | See all Arteus's reviews »
It's not too often that I play games all the way through but this game had me hooked. Even after playing Absolution I still consider it the best game in the Hitman franchise by far, even if it isn't quite as graphically impressive. What the game does have it provides in droves; it's tense, deliberately paced and most importantly just outright fun. The game allows for you to approach situations in a variety of ways depending on how you're feeling. If you want to poison some food you can go ahead and do that. If you want to go in guns blazing with no regard for your final score...well, nobody is stopping you.
It's a great time, I have no qualms in recommending it.
Long lasting game that is replayable and is the best game yethomes223 | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all homes223's reviews »
Hitman:Blood Money is the fourth installment in the Hitman series and a good one at that. Agent 47 is back in the states for some fun missions that let you achieve objectives in many different, stylish ways. An example of these ways is in the Rehab mission you are able to dress up as the doctor and issue syringes with deadly poison to kill your targets who are patients. Another is if you are seen on TV you lose $ for the mission but if you steal the video tape from the guard quarters you can eliminate you ever being spotted on TV. While there are many ways to kill enemies in H:BM there still is a sense of lack in interactable enviroments at times. The graphics are sleek and new along with the cool music that feels like a good assassin theme. Fast loading times are also good but they are plentiful because of the difficult gameplay in H:BM. You can also do many things while not on a mission such as buy intel, upgrade weapons for future missions, and bride people if your notoreity is high. The A.I. is fairly smart by hiding bodies from public if they find a dead person and on the most part they look different so its not another game where you see common NPC models. The missions can last a long time which is good and depends on the way you do the mission. You can also go into First Person View if you wish but 3rd person is more of a classic view in the Hitman series. A downside of H:BM is sometimes NPC characters have weird and obviou movement glitches but other than that everything is fine. Hitman:Blood Money is a great replayable game that lasts long even if gameplay can be frustrating at times.
Great Game!ElectricCake | Jan. 16, 2014 | See all ElectricCake's reviews »
One of my favourite Hitman games, because you can do whatever you want in it, as opposed to Absolution. Anyways, I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a stealth game, or just a game that allows you to execute your objective in any way you would like. A must buy, especially when its on sale :).
Really awesome gameficha13 | Jan. 12, 2014 | See all ficha13's reviews »
One of the best stealth games released in the previous decade. To this day it remains fun and entertaining with loads of missions, various weapons and it has really good replay value. You can play the game in a number of play styles, from stealthy where you try to eliminate only the target with as less casualties as possible to psychotic where you just go killing everybody in the level. You can also do something in the middle if you like, it all depends on the player's choice and it works perfectly. Good graphics for it's time, solid AI, huge levels and loads of variety. Could not recommend the game more, especially if you're a stealth fan.
