Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

If you are looking for the ultimate in stealth gameplay then you should look no further than Hitman 2. Based around 21 missions you play a hitman trying to save a friend who's been kidnapped.

Immersing you slowly into a story that moves between Russia, India, Japan and other locations, you have to use your wits as you sneak through deadly exercises.

Continuing on from the original game, Eidos has done a lot to improve the games control mechanism as well as some of the features that where criticised in the first instalment. Unlike the original, a save option has now been included, though the number of saves you get (and the number of bad guys and the degree of their intelligence) will be determined by the difficulty level you choose.

While the graphics have been noticeably improved since the first game--the snow is very impressive in St Petersberg--neither the sound nor the gameplay have been forgotten: there is now a 60-piece orchestra and 50-member choir soundtrack; and now you don't necessarily have to complete the missions in a specific order.

Eidos has managed to do a rare thing with Hitman 2. It has taken a game that was by all accounts mediocre, listened to the criticism and tried its best to address the problems with an effective response--and produced a high-quality game which, although still difficult, should give you plenty of late nights and annoying puzzles to solve. --Jason Denwood

This probably the most polished game I have ever played. It really is excellent,it is a stealth 'em up like syphon filter or metal gear solid,but it is a much better game than either of these two (yeah I said it).In the past one of the biggest fears I have had of buying pc games is that they become so damn complicated. For instance take m1 tank platoon 2 I studied for nearly a week before i understood the controls and how to maipulate them than after a day of planning and manoevering it degenerated into a shoot out.
Hitman does not suffer from this it has a natural,simple and yet very complete control system allowing the player to immerse into the game straight away.The graphics were the first thing that struck me about the game- they were detailed and absouletly gorgeous.This is when i expected the game to fall down,but it didn't it got better. The missions were excellent and the real brilliance of the game comes through in how many ways you can execute an objective, upclose and silent,all guns blazing, from the rooftops with a rifle , disguised as a guard. There are so many ways that it takes a moment to find out how best to accomplish them.
THe sad thing is that it is short,like really short I got the game on monday and finished it on friday.I'm now playing it again to pick up all the weopons but when the game finishes there are no bonuses or mini missions to accomplish. Get the game though its worth it and if nothing else it will tell you what sort of personality you have quiet and meticulous or spontaeous and gung ho.

4.0 out of 5 stars License to kill ? 14 Oct 2002
Who never fantasized about becoming a hitman, a professional killer? Plotting and planning a hit, looking at maps, choosing the right weapons for the job, etc. Oh, and looking cool of course :).
Well, this game is probably about as close to being a real hitman as possible. And not just any hitman: you're 47. You're a genetically enhanced man, made for only one purpose: to be the ultimate killing machine.
And so the story starts - you're now a gardener in a monastery, having given up the life as a hitman after what happened in the first game. And then suddenly a friend of yours (a priest living with you in the monastery) gets kidnapped and you're forced to become the illustrious hitman 47 again.
So now we get to the actual game.
For each mission you get to pick weapons with you. You collect more weapons as you pick them up during missions. Want an AK47? Pick one up. Want a golf club? Pick one up. The trick here is that you can only carry two big weapons - so no AK47 and a crossbow for example. But picking weapons IS very important! Be careful which ones you chose.
What makes Hitman2 so different from other stealth based games like Thief and No One Lives Forever is the ability to plan before you enter a mission. You'll get detailed information about the compound you're about to enter - doors, sewer entrances, guard patrols, etc. Everything is marked on the map. It's imperative that you study these well and try and find a way to complete the mission. While impatient players will manage to finish the first missions without using the documentation, later missions may become a lot harder. So try and be patient - as Hannibal used to say: "I love it when a plan comes together" and you will, if you pull it off.

4.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change 6 Nov 2002
By CR10
Many games nowadays are entirely "Kill Every Enemy" orientated and while this is fun it is always nice to see different games. The original Hitman was, relative to this, terrible. There were too many glitches and the level design was poor. This version corrects all those problems with some stunning scenery, clever A.I and great level design taking you from the sewers of Russia to the skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur.
The graphics are good but the real satisfaction lies in the execution of the mission. It is possible to charge through the level like a bull in a china shop and complete it earning the title of "Mass-murderer". There is some, short term, satisfaction in that but you will really feel like you have accomplished something if you kill your target without laying eyes on him. It is very possible to do this in many missions and earn the coveted rank of "Silent Assassin". It is a short game and not very challenging to experienced gamers but it is a change from the normal and a good change at that. A variety of weapons (from hand-to-hand and pistols to long range custom made sniper rifles) looks good to someone on the outside but once you are in the game - unless you want a rank of mass murderer - you will find yourself sticking to silenced weapons. Whilst each mission is practically the same (infiltrate, eliminate, exfiltrate) the scenery does change and this breaks the game up so you don't feel like you are repeating anything at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Work of pure genius! 22 Oct 2002
I bought the first Hitman game and loved it, but I felt that there werent enough well designed missions, and the game wasnt long enough. This sequel finetunes that, making the ultimate hitman game. Theres nothing more satisfying than creeping up on a bodyguard and popping a bullet in his head from your silenced pistol. There are plenty of different ways to complete each mission and its challenging without being ridiculously hard. My only criticism (and this is me digging VERY deep for a flaw) is that it is a bit too easy to charge through a level, murdering everyone in order to complete it quickly, if you get frustrated with stealthy methods. However, that is more a criticism of the player, rather than the design, which is fabulous. All I can say is...
Trust me.
