I must admit I've loved the Hitman series thus far. This latest episode is
more of a prequel to the other games rather than a continuation of Agent
47's story, which disappointed me a little. The missions are a ‘flashback’
sequence of some of 47's most memorable hits, and players of the first PC game
(Codename: 47) will recognise some of the environments as they are replayed
somewhat in this game.
This game definately has more of a sinister and disturbing feel to it
compared to Hitman 2, which to me made 47 seem less of a professional and more
of a butcher. The variety of weapons is a great improvement over Hitman 2,
however I found the controls difficult to manage and sometimes downright
frustrating as they differ so much from the previous game.
A must only for the die hard Hitman fan. Others may be put off by the
sporatic and inconclusive storyline.
