They're a great set of games at a great price
on 18 February 2018
Ok so I've played contracts and blood money (and the original hitman 2) and think the only difference is the graphics(not sure about cheats) so if you've played the originals you know the score.
They're a great set of games at a great price. Only played through hitman 2 and blood money fully, but definitely prefer blood money. I've reviewed both previously, but basically hitman 2 is pretty good, but I think there's quite a few missions that have a condition, such as only kill this person or where sniping is near mandatory. There is still a good few truly open ended issions, but I feel blood money achieves this better, and subsequently I find blood money a much easier game, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your preference.
So with that this trilogy is great in that the games despite being a series are quite distinctive from each other(though not fully sure about contracts obvbviously). Blood money feels easier, you can't save melee weapons to your inventory, get less guns but your primary weapons, your shotgun, sniper, silver ballers and tactical smg are upgradable. Where as I feel hitman 2 is harder, you can store melee weapons(and can actually use them an in blood money melee weapons result in blood which gives you away) and weapons aren't upgradable, but you get more weapons such as the m60 and ak rifle.
So overall a great trilogy with great variations between the games whilst keeping their core features that have aged very well.
