He's back... the man who could kill you using a rubber band and a piece of scotch tape... the MacGyver of assassins....That's right, I'm talking about the bald beauty himself, Agent 47. Hitman: Contracts is a somewhat bipolar game...on the one hand, newcomers and old-timers alike will love it's complete freedom, fabulous graphics, and excellent controls...while some might be disappointed by the lack of serious plot and the reuse of some missions from the first Hitman, not to mention the longevity of the game. (12 missions.) But, those aside, the game truly is enjoyable. Let's hop right to it, shall we...?
Gameplay: (9/10) First of all, the gameplay is great in all the missions. It's fabulous. Ambiance and atmosphere seem to come off this game in waves. You'll be so drawn into this game that you'll hardly notice your grandmother screaming to be fed. (Sorry, Gran...) The control is excellent, the missions are creative, the tension is addictive, and the pure fun of it all is just great;...
THE GOOD: fantastic Graphics great gameplay A good lifespan Lots of ways to complete each mission
THE BAD: Can be a bit repetitive
SUMMARY: An overall compelling and good game with excellent graphics alongside good gameplay and challenging missions. There are so many ways to complete each mission you will be at them for hours on end. It can however get a bit repetetive the same old killing people with all guns blazing usually working better than the main aim of the game wich is stealth.Some good music give it a nice atmosphere and it can be freaky and scary with lots of blood and gore.The difficulty modes vary from Easy to silent assassin, affecting the map and AI intelligence etc. At the end of each level you get a rating i.e silent assassin being the best getting this means you unlock weapons so unlocking all the weapons adds lifespan. It is worth your money and is one of the best games in its genre around for the xbox
THE GOOD: The Gameplay, the wide range of weapons, the well thought out missions, lovely ragdoll physics, 47 folds his clothes well.
THE BAD: Only 12 missions.
SUMMARY: For Neoseeker member's eyes only, destroy after reading. I rented this game and I was very impressed, the game was very well thought out, the creeping to get past guards, the different attires, the wide range of weapons from Syringe to Mini-gun. Another thing I liked is the wide range of poisoning food that you had to do with rat poison, poison or laxative. The game had a good storyline. The ragdoll physics, seen in Hitman 2 was still going strong in Contracts. I did it in one day (With a guide) but if it wasn't for the guide I'dd have been hopelessly lost. I love this game I'm gonna give it two thumbs up, I wish I had more thumbs to stick up for this game. I say buy or rent this game you'll be pleased.
THE GOOD: Much better Artificial intelligence, more guns, and a fairly interesting storyline, excellent graphics and sound, excellent gameplay and presentation
THE BAD: Short game, you can't save any melee weapons
SUMMARY: The 3rd installment to onf of my most favorite gaming series ever, Hitman: Contracts. This game is single player but it is definitly one of the best single player shooter games out there today.
The beauty of the Hitman series is you can either go stealthy or shoot the hell out of the place. And still accomplish everything in the level. Of course taking it stealthily comes with its rewards.
As always the Graphics and Presentation are excellent. Io does an excellent job with this. Making the gameplay somewhat cinematic like. Includes ragdool physics, and a really beautiful environment in each level which is also somehwta destructable.
The story at first doesn't make much sense until you put it all together from beginning to end. it's a really great story actually.
