Hitman: Contracts © IO Interactive A/S, 2004
First game in the franchise was good, but not without problems - with time, graphics got incredibly outdated and ugly, and controls, bugs were also not so great. After second game in the series and first to hit the consoles, Silent Assassin, Eidos/IOI decided it would be wise to introduce console players to the franchise and not live them in the cold, so this game was created barely two years after Silent Assassin hit the shelves, this game was made. It is more or less a remake of the first game on slightly upgraded 2nd game's engine with the same strong gameplay. While there are couple of new missions, most of them are remade and fit into the new gameplay. It's actually great and doesn't feel cheap at all and I would dare to say it's actually one of the best remasters/remakes, because it took the best missions from the first game, while giving couple of new, which are also great and give 47 some more backstory. Graphics are good, soundtrack is incredible, and gameplay is also awesome, backed by great level design. Great game in already great franchise. Recommended.
Ah the nostalgia! One of the darker Hitman games, a must have for every Hitman fan out there. Graphics are outdated but solid gameplay mechanics make up for them. The gameplay is pretty much still the same as Hitman Silent Assassin, only improved a bit. You sneak faster and the gameplay feels more fast paced, though still requires a careful planning. A decent sequel the the Hitman 2. Also, it is much shorter than Blood Money unfortunately.
This is the second best Hitman game after Blood Money in my opinion. While it lacks the level design of blood money, hitman contracts makes up for it with its dark atmosphere that perfectly fits the hitman series. It also has some of the best levels in Hitman series, like Deadly Cargo and traditions of the trade. Definitely a must play for hitman fans.
Contracts is the third entry in the Hitman series and something of a remake of the first, as most of the missions are similar to the ones seen in Codename 47. It isn't the best Hitman game, but it's still a very good stealth game. Compared to Silent Assassin, it has fewer missions, but almost none of them feels like filler (unlike those boring missions in SA in which you simply had to move from point A to point B without being detected), which makes the length of the game more than satisfying, especially for the price it sells for today. Gameplay-wise there is nothing significantly different from what makes Codename 47 and Silent Assassin the great games they are. Overall, it feels a bit like a more of the same, but since the previous titles were great... This is still good, and worth playing if you like Hitman.
As hinted (not so subtly) in the title, Hitman: Contracts doesn't live up to the standards set by its predecessor. It doesn't have much of a story (thus not adding almost anything to the hitmanverse), the remade missions from the first game (which take up at least 40% of the game's length) aren't really improvements to the originals, the sound is not as good as in the previous game (it's still great though; nothing that comes from Jesper Kyd's creative genius can be considered bad) and the difficulty level isn't quite up to par. Overall, the game feels like an expanion to Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (by the way, notice how this isn't Hitman 3: Contracts; I'm sensing the "Valve can't count to three" syndrome is contagious). Still, that doesn't mean the game is a failure. On the contrary, the atmosphere is at least as good as before - the game takes place entirely in flashback mode (save for the ending, last mission and between-mission cutscenes); we actually see how 47 remembers the contracts, thus explaining why the weather is so gloomy all the time) -, the weapon collecting is back and revamped along with better training level(s) and a huge batman-like hidden base, and the voice acting is excellent (David Bateson IS Agent 47 for all intents and purposes). I may be forgetting important things, but hopefully that won't stop you from adding this game to your collection (preferably on a sale), especially if you're a fellow Hitman fan.
