One of the best stealth games ever made

LSD | Dec. 20, 2014 | See all LSD's reviews »

Contracts is something of a remake of the previous 2 Hitman games, with some levels being completely re-made locations, and others including characters or targets from the other games.

Though the game's around 10 years old, it still stands up well for modern audiences. The stealth is top-notch, and the number of ways to approach each missions is both varied and detailed. Contracts also retains the difficulty of previous Hitman games that Blood Money dropped, meaning the missions require a lot of thought, and even some planning in order to succeed.

Interestingly, this is probably the darkest Hitman game to date, and that's not just because every mission takes place at night (with most of them being in rainy whether, which creates an incredible atmosphere). The first level involves escaping an asylum filled with corpses (the same asylum as the first Hitman ends in), and other locations are just as grim: without spoiling too much, there's a girl kidnapped and held captive in a slaughterhouse hosting an S&M-themed party, a boy kidnapped by an aristocratic family to be used as sport for a group of hunters, and a modern hotel with a closed-off wing that was host to a gruesome murder.

Mixed feelings

Obsessor | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all Obsessor's reviews »

Yes. That's in short my review of the third Hitman game. Here we get something totally different. The gameplay is more or less the same, but the story... Felt like the developers were content with what they got so far. Not keen on inventing more at the moment. So we get to replay some missions from previous games. Sure there are new moves, new ways to eliminate your targets. It's just I expected something brand new, not flashbacks. Don't get me wrong though. I loved the game and I recommend you add it to your collection.

Excellent stealth game

The title says it all really. Yes, the graphics are outdated, but don't let the screenshots fool you. Gameplay is excellent, and it has all the characteristics of a hitman game.

It isn't worth the normal price, since the newer Hitman:Absolution is often on sale around this price point. Get it on a discount instead.

Stealth

vaseroth | Jan. 29, 2014 | See all vaseroth's reviews »

If you were a fan of the other series then this is the game for you. With improvements to the AI and better control handling this game is defenetly worth the price now days. This game comes after the events in the Agent 47 and Hitman 2 games. Once again you are presented with obstacles to achive your "objectives" and it is up to you how to carry them out. Most of the time you can either stealth thru the whole place and not alert anyone. But hey, if you are like me, then sometimes its just more fun to go guns-a-blazing. Just be warned the combat in this game is not that friendly towards you if you are playing on high settings. (who plays on easy anyway?) Over all i loved this game and would recommend it
