Hitman: Codename 47
"Hitman is a fantastic title that dares to be a bit different. " - Eurogamer.net

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.

This classic went ahead and redefined and reinvented a whole genre of stealth games. Even now the game is still very enjoyable as the core of the game is the game-play, not the visuals. If you are new to Hitman and played some of the newer games, you should definitely not miss out on this classic!
Dated Game But Still FunNuxaider | March 26, 2013 | See all Nuxaider's reviews »
Hitman: Codename 47 is where it all started. In terms of mechanics, it feels clunky at times but still perfectly serviceable. Though this game was a masterpiece during its time, now we've been spoiled by better, more convenient game mechanics the later games offer. A.I. is poor by today's standards but are still smart enough to have a challenge. Overall, if you want to see where the Hitman franchise started, this is a worthy purchase.

This game is a classic, even almost 13 years on, the graphics are dated but the gameplay still takes your breath away and leaves you thinking, whats happened to the gameplay today? Why has more effort been put into graphics whilst the gameplay gets left behind? Give me second rate graphics and Codename 47 state gameplay any day.
