This is the game that got me into the Hitman franchise, and I wouldn't recommend it to new players. It's very difficult, the AI is buggy as hell, and you're not given much guidance on what you're supposed to do. But that doesn't mean it's not one of the best games ever made! IO Interactive took the basic idea of Codename 47 and made it ten times better when they made Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. You'll be blown away from the main menu screen to the end credits. At the time I had never played a game that was so open-ended. You're pretty much thrown into a map, told to kill a guy, and it's up to you to figure out how you're going to do it.
I had seen this game in a store but originally passed on it. The idea of being an international hitman was appealing, but I figured it was going to be watered-down garbage. By chance I received a copy of Hitman 2 and now I'm glad I did! One of the best experiences I've ever had in a video game and one in which I've played for thousands of hours and lost sleep on just trying to figure out new ways to kill targets and complete missions in crazy ways.
A classic in every sense of the word and you owe it to yourselves to play this game.
