Wasnt sure at first, but this shoots to the top,
This review is from: Hitman: Blood Money (PS2) (Video Game)
Well, after playing on te previous hitman games, i didnt know how Io-interactive could better, or even make this game any different to the others, but how wrong i was.
I have had this game for a few days now, and i have hardly been off it. It is a realatively short game, with only 12 missions, but i havent nearly finished yet. This is due to the ability to replay a mission, always attempting to do it another way, for example. In the second mission (my favourite so far) i have found 7 different ways of completing it, and i am sure there are far more. Each vary in the speed taken, and, ofcourse, the amount of blood spilt.
A real star of this game is the ability to buy upgrades to your weapons, and obtain weapons from missions. This can severely affect the next mission, e.g, you could opt for the twin hand guns, with laser sight and long barrel. This may be extremely deadly, but makes ranged silent kills next to impossible without a silencer.
Many other gamers and magazine reviews have dicreditied the scenes as you (if you) die, with it being extremely slow. However, myself and my friends have come to the decision that this is soooooooooo fun as enables you to see how many agents/police you can take with you before you suffer the ultimate fate.
I would reccomend this game to anyone buying (those over 18 that is) as will provide months, if not years, as im sure it will for me, of fun and excitement.
I hope this has helped with any queeries.
