Hitman: Codename 47 is a revolutionary third-person action adventure that combines a strong mix of stealth, strategy and shooting.
Taking control of a ‘Hitman’, the player has to carry out ‘hits’ on a number of high-powered adversaries all set within intricately detailed 3D environments. At first the ‘Hitman’ thinks he is carrying out orders for his usual underground agency, but in fact he is being used to clean up the traces of a genetic scientist’s revolutionary experiments of which the ‘Hitman’ himself was a prototype. As the game progresses, the player will start to piece his past together and realise that he is the next target.
Advanced graphics engine allows the construction of some of the most intricate environments ever seen in a computer game.
Over 80 individually modelled characters.
Never seen before levels of interaction and physical manipulation of characters and objects.
Advanced enemy AI. Foes can see, hear, speak, interact with environments and co-ordinate actions with other characters.
More than 20 realistically modelled and textured locations that are architecturally correct.
Great but still a little brokendrafek | June 17, 2013 | See all drafek's reviews »
This game does have a really great story it does have a few interested elements in the story. The AI is a little broken in my opinion, I did got a few glitches within the game, but the game is dated so that's understandeable. The graphics are alright a little outdated but the game is a little old. I recommend playing this game in my opinion it's alot better then hitman absolution story wise and gameplay wise.
A Great Stealth Game that some Games Still Can't Copythegaminglyfe | June 17, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
Hitman: Codename 47 isn't a game where you have to avoid people and take your time. This is a very modern stealth game with new mechanics that you must utilise in order to complete the missions. You don't have to sneak past the cop or climb into the building like other stealth games. You can but you don't have to, you can kill the cop and steal his clothes and use them as a disguise to just walk through the entrance of the building and no one will notice. Many games have tried to copy this type of stealth but have failed horribly, only the Hitman series allows you to do this. Some controls and features of the game might piss you off, not everything in this game has aged very well. The graphics and sound are still nice though. The levels are huge and allow you to choose different paths and ways to complete your objective. You can go in with an assault rifle and blow everyone away, or you can go slow, find a disguise and silently kill him with no trace to you. Whether you are new to the Hitman series or have played every one but this. This is a must-buy in both cases.
A good game, very entertaining and longkalil | June 14, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
Gameplay: 9 - Hitman is based on stealth and caution, and not the pure and simple mata mata as happens today with most games. It's a long game, and sometimes complicated not by the game itself if not in the moment you discover in some missions, complicates life a lot and makes you quite possibly have to restart the mission. - A good IA, a well-crafted stories, and a number of quite varied missions of this game makes a game worth having on the shelf, because despite the years, and last haberselo one a few times, achieved through the type of game it is, you can keep playing despite the passing years. Something that very few games can boast. - Control is sometimes a bit rough (the times more than anything), sometimes it's a little sickening in some missions by the fluidity of movement. But you have to admit it is a great game and very entertaining, which is most important. And long. What I value a lot.
Technology: 8 - A neat and molona interface, although a bit simple for my taste. It required some important requirements for computers of the time, but had the virtue that if they are lowered a bit, you could pull the game fluent in more normalitos computers. And that is welcome. In addition, the AI for the time was pretty good.
Graphics: 8 - Great graphics for the motion época.El sometimes a bit dizzying, especially in certain missions in confined spaces, but very good for its time.
Sound: 8 - Well, all right, without many excesses and music quite suited to missions and type of game it is. Pity that was in English and not in Spanish voices, but for what they say or comment, no need to read Shakespeare and Mark Twin.
Innovation: 8 - Follow the trail left by the time great games like Metal Gear Solid, which prioritized the patience and the use of intelligence than the fast trigger (which is also necessary in several missions). Not that it was a revolution, but within its genre in those years was a great game. And to this day, would leave many great games diapers today.
Conclusion: 8.6 - A game by not passing the years in terms of wanting to play, the player who is. The graphics are obviously noticing the years, and the fluidity of movement, but by the type of game it is and history, is still valid today for any player who wants more than just graphics.
An old classicChauci | June 1, 2013 | See all Chauci's reviews »
This was the first and best Hitman game, the mission was simple, eliminate your contract and for this task you were given plenty of options. There was never a single linear mission. This game lacked a real enthralling story, but it made up for it in its epic mission design and well thought out gameplay. The guns felt good and the enemies were tough and non-forgiving if you were caught. The missions did often lack the now standard waypoint system and as such, you were often found not really knowing how and where to begin your mission, if you had not listened to your briefing and were willing to experiment. This is still a stealth classic
Still a fun gameEyeless42 | May 31, 2013 | See all Eyeless42's reviews »
Hitman is still a fun game to this date. It's challenging and always leaves you wanting more, either because the next mission is exciting or because you just almost got the one you're in. There are many ways to complete a level, from complete stealth to straight up just killing everybody. Most of the times it is your choice how you want to proceed. The graphics don't necessarily hold up to the standards of current generation games, but that shouldn't affect your view of this game. Gameplay can be a bit tricky sometimes, but practice makes perfect and that is exactly what this game is about, trying to get every little thing to be done just the right way.
