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.
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.
