The title sums it up. This is, officially, the best Hitman game ever created. Why? The freedom lads. You have many and more ways to complete every assassination. Every time you get a new job, you're dropped into a huge level, where it;s your wits vs the enemies. From indiscriminate slaughter to being an invisible hand that nudges and pushes unsuspecting victims into "accidental deaths." And that mind blowing ending... 100/100 isn't enough.
Cleaner Job = more pay -Blood Moneyyngdr | Sept. 9, 2014 | See all yngdr's reviews »
A revamped upgrade in the Hitman series. Has everything you love from the originals 1 & 2 with better graphics and sounds, and even extra means of contract fulfilment by ways of accidents. You can now hide bodies in containers and disarm and distract enemies and targets. The controls have gotten better and the cleaner you finish a mission the more cash it pays. A high replay value for a minimal cost.

Have you ever played one of the games in the Hitman series? No? Then you should start playing this one. It has huge maps, a fantastic story and a very high replay value. The game encourages to keep the finger away from the trigger and instead kill your objectives silently and without being seen. You can poison food and drinks, use the environment to your advantage, disguise yourself for entering restricted areas, and much more.
For 2006, this game has aged very well. You should get this game if you are interested in the stealth genre.
A Pleasure To Playkaratee9 | Aug. 24, 2014 | See all karatee9's reviews »
With the new Hitman out I thought it would be time to revisit the older ones, and I have to say, they are good. Playing this game has refuelled my love for the Hitman series. This game has tonnes of relay value with many ways to complete each mission. I have played it at least three times with each one finding a more efficient and clever way to play it. You play as a hitman, killing who you are told to by Diana. The cleaner you do each mission, the more money you receive, the better you guns become.
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
