5.0 out of 5 stars This aint Doom, 7 Mar 2005
This review is from: Hitman: Contracts (Xbox) (Video Game)
I first played Hitman a while back and although I was blown away by the style of game I wasn't all impressed with the Graphics levels and animation.
As the sequels come out they do get a lot better, I would say though you get more of an experience having all 3 titles as you know why the bald man with a bar code on his neck does certain things.
Getting to grips with the game is hard for some gamers but for all of you Metal Gear, Max Payne lovers you will crack this in an hour.
The largest difference from the games you play like Max Payne is it is not all about how much devastation you can rain down on the enemy but how clever and clean you make your kills.
Don't get me wrong you still get to take out enemies with a large range of Sniper rifles, Hand guns, shotguns etc but that's only if you get caught out. He he he, watch out for Eidos rag doll effects, bodies react differently to the calibre of weapon.
The games scenarios have been planned and mapped perfectly, sound and animation around the levels are smooth and the lighting is much improved thanks to the superior graphics card of the Xbox over the PS2.
You walk like a stone cold killer around these levels, taking place all over the world taking out a variety of wrong doer's, use syringes, knifes, guns and poison and escape the area unheard.
What makes this game though are the costume changes, you will have to wear uniforms and civilian clothing to blend in around some of the deadliest gangs in the world, place a foot wrong and they don't mess around.
All this together with a good story line and control method make for tense experiences and really pleasing results.
9/10
