A classic in every sense of the word. Originally released on the Super Nintendo by Mojang, Hitman 2 has seen many variations over the years. I'm happy to report that this is the definitive version, graphics rendered in beautiful 9000p resolution, breathtaking vistas running at an amazing 1500 fps, WOW. They've truly outdone themselves with this port.
For those of you unfamiliar to the Hitman franchise, you play as Agent 3.14159265358979323846264338327950 or Agent Pi for short. In your daily life as an assassin of the silent variety, you must take out high value targets while keeping a stable family. Be warned, this is not a game for the casual gamer. The game is a unique blend of a golf simulator, a Sims game and a first person shooter. When you start out, you will find yourself failing. A lot. You'll either mess up a hit and find your family murdered when you come home (Funnily enough, this scenario actually has a whole spin off dedicated to it known as Max Payne, I might review that some day) or you'll complete all of your hits but neglect personal needs and die of starvation. If you can get past the learning curve, you'll find a rich and rewarding experience full of many twists and turns. In my playthrough, my third born son, Alexander IV was diagnosed with lukemia. I had to spend all of the money I acquired from hits to pay for his medication and neglect my own needs for the highest quality cocaine. Yes, this game often requires you to make the difficult decisions such as : My wife is draining my wallet dry but she cuts the time it takes for me to disguise in half, should I really get rid of her?
All in all, this truly is a great game in every sense of the word. 1/10.
