Well being bald and dangerous never felt so good as in this one. This game is fun. when it comes to graphics it still holds up (according to someone who thinks first MGS looks sexy) but where the game shines is in gameplay, you can go in with guns blazing and enjoy some quality ragdol physics, but to be a true bald killing machine, you need to use your wits, disguises, kill only your target and left without being noticed (sounds tricky and difficult? Well, it is). And if you just can't be bothered to play game at all. Check out speedruns of this game because they are amazing to watch. I can't recommend this game enough. A more than one way to kill your target, very good story (for hitman game. To catch up, to mass effect is still haves some work to do) and this feeling of being ♥♥♥♥ing genius after getting a silent assassin rating without consulting YouTube.

Hitman 2:Silent Assassin is follow up of a Hitman:Codename 47 action-adventure stealth game developed by "IO Interactive" and published by "Eidos Interactive" currently known as "Square Enix" in late 2002. The game is second chapter of the franchise, showing us the adventures of "Hitman" aka "Agent:47" who is the successful example of experiment series serving to genetically modify humans to make them a perfect killing machine.

However hitman seems to be not as cold blooded as other agents use to be,he still has feelings like any other human which is shown in this current chapter,hitman is retired and is trying to live a normal life serving as gardener in the monastery in Sicily owned by father Emilio Vittorio,however father Vittorio gets kidnapped by local mafia,and that's where the game starts,unable to pay the amount kidnappers ask, Hitman tries to use old contacts in ICA (International Contract Agency) to get some intel about father Vittorios location in exchange for getting some of their contracts done wich includes taking down high priority targets while keeping low profile,using tactical approach,stealth,environment,disguises and weapon variety,rather going face to face combat.

Compared to first chapter game has increased an amount of weaponry, unique disguises, and tactical approach,you have multiple choices how to execute your mission and compared to the first game, the game has a dynamic map serving as navigation to locate your enemies and target as well as marking the extraction points.however game still doesn't include tips for newbie players,basically you have to figure out everything on your own,there's no path to follow or tips how to approach your target,you have to orientate on your own while trying to keep a low profile,compared to first game you have slightly more health and increased accuracy but it's still not recommended to force a face to face combat,game is hardcore and slow,it takes a lot of patience to complete a mission in a stealthy way,you are not restricted to blow your cover and go face to face but you'll get fewer credits by doing so.

Missions, maps, and environment seems bigger and more variable as well as characters and graphics itself compared to first game,and compared to first game you have being given the option to save a game,however you can only use it for restricted amount depended on of 3 difficulties you choose, however none of them is "easy", but that's what gives the game glory, and is still one of the iconic games.

PROS:
  • Variety of weapons – (compared to first game offers more type of weapons for each role,starting from a melee ending up with sniper rifles)

  • Variety of environment – (atmosphere varies depended on the several countries you have to travel to,such as Russia,Italy,Japan etc. and all of the maps seem to be bigger than in previous game)

  • Freedom of choice – (compared to first game, Silent Assassin offers more variable ways of execution without any restrictions)

  • Hardcore – (as well as the previous game,doesn't include any tips or tutorial,it relays on the way you can orientate and may take longer to finish the mission cause the maps are slightly bigger than in first game, however, you have a dynamic map wich locates all your enemies and targets as well as extraction points)
CONS:
  • No tips or tutorral – (as well as previous game,hitman 2: silent assassin doesn't include any tips or tutorial whatsoever,you only know what's your mission but nothing about how to approach and execute it,so length of the mission depends on how fast you can orientate in that conditions)

47, Diana here. Everyone thought you were dead...

After the flawed but interesting Codename 47, Hitman 2 is a step in the right direction. Everything here, from the stealth to the score by Jesper Kyd, is improved tenfold over the first game. But this is from 2002, and although it runs on a modern low-end computer damn well (although a few tweaks are needed to raise the resolution), it's a game limited by its engine. Silent Assassin wants to be two things at once - a stealth puzzle game, where the most direct solution is rarely the best, and an action game where the aforementioned action is detrimental to the player.

It succeeds... mostly. In Silent Assassin, 47 returns from a short hiatus to rescue a kidnapped priest he worked for. This quest takes him from Sicily to Japan, Thailand to Russia. It's visually decent although marred by simplistic models and animations that, while impressive in 2002, look odd in 2016. Anyone looking for a challenge should invest in Silent Assassin; the perfect hit takes patience and the will to experiment with approaches. If you found Blood Money or Contracts too hard, Silent Assassin is not your friend. Certain levels are downright tedious to sit through as a result of one mistake, and each misstep is punished accordingly. Though almost unrecognisable to the later games (containing no accident kills or elaborate assassination methods), Silent Assassin is worth your time - if you've got the patience for it.

Damn. This game is GOOD! I'm really surprised of how much I turned out to enjoy it. I mean, the first Hitman was... a fun distraction, but this one improves on it in every aspect.

First of all, the STORY: the first game had a story too, but it didn't seem to care until the last mission. Well, this one does a similar thing, but at least it explores a little more 47's character.

The GAMEPLAY also has some much needed improvements: the controls are a lot more "mainstream", I had a hard time to find a suitable configuration to play Codename 47. Just like any other respecful Hitman game, you have tons of creative options to take out your targets. Poison, silenced weapons, sniper rifles, malee, the iconic fibre wire... Hell, you can even get some anesthetic and go for a non-lethal approach towards the guards (it is HARD AS ♥♥♥♥ tho).
This time a loud and dumb approach can be an actual option, as I said there's tons of weapons to choose from, it's all up to you.

The graphics...well of course they don't hold up, but the maps really give you a sense of scale. They're REALLY HUGE.

THE SOUNDTRACK! OH MY GOD THE SOUNDTRACK! The music in this game is GLORIUS, and they know it, they shove it in your face as soon as you start the game up. There are soooo many epic tracks. It is SURELY ONE OF THE BEST IN GAMING HISTORY.

Of course it has some minor issues, for example, it felt short, at least for me. I finished it in a little more than 10 hours, and I scored professional in almost every missions, even silent assassin in a few of them, which should take longer.
Also it feels like 47 moves REALLY SLOWLY, especially in tiny hallways.

But overall, this game is really solid. It's worth it just for the soundtrack. I'm listening at it while i'm writing this review and oh man... THE chills...



Almost forgot: first person is a thing. Just in case you prefer immersion.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

A classic entry in the Hitman series which sparked many sequels, Hitman 2 is a solid, fun stealth title.


Positives:

+ There are many different ways you can approach missions - poisoning the food or water of your target without being detected, choking them with fiber wire, using silenced guns or just running in rambo and ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ up. Maybe you want to cause a power outage by turning a generator off, then slitting their throat in the dark. Fancy placing a bomb on a target's helicopter and watching it expode? It's all possible. The ability to choose how you will carry out your hit is pretty cool.

+ Lots of unique disguises to use, which vary according to mission. From the typical bodyguard attire to dressing as a doctor to infilitrate hospital surgery rooms, or as a pizza delivery boy - you'll have many options to pursue when trying to reach your target.

+ Huge array of weapons to select prior to each assassination. You do need to collect these guns throughout the game's levels to have access to them however. You've got submachineguns, M60s, assault rifles, crossbows, desert eagles, revolvers, silenced pistols, multiple shotguns...numerous sniper rifles - tonnes.

+ I loved the variety of missions available. You'll travel to Russia for assassinations then to Germany, Japan, Singapore and India. Each segment contributes to the overall story of Hitman 2, which I thought was pretty clever (no spoilers on that).

+ Awesome music throughout the game. Really helps you feel like an assassin and a badass one at that. Truly top notch.



Negatives:

- Graphics haven't aged well, but the game is old so no surprise there. Not a real problem but it should be noted regardless.

- Clipping issues (at least with the steam version). Check my screenshots for examples. Enemies walking through trucks seemed to be the major one.

- One of the biggest problems with Hitman 2 is the lack of information you're given on how the game works - how enemies interact with your decisions. If I dress up as a bodyguard, will civilians be suspicious of my outfit? Or will it just be other guards? If I dress as a doctor, will guards see through it easily or will civilians? No one tells you how the suspicion metre in Hitman 2 actually operates. Sometimes it seems to do whatever it wants.

For instance, in one hit I placed a smoke bomb in a laundry chute to activate the fire alarms and then sneaked into the firefighter quarters, taking a uniform. I walked out and towards the metal detectors - then a civilian INSTANTLY recognises me (without the suspicion bar even rising) and alerts the guards. Why? I still can't figure out how this happened. Same deal with one assassination I had in a hospital. Dressed as a doctor, I shot a guard dead with a silenced pistol and concealed his body. But the nurse somehow alerts the guards, even though there's a ♥♥♥♥ing BLACKOUT because I cut power to the generator. Certain parts of the game don't add up logically.

- Difficulty is outrageous on anything over normal. Enemies see through disguises straight away, leaving you no choice but to mass murder your way to the target. Pretty poor design really, making the whole point of the game (silence and stealth) impossible rather than a challenge.

Overall Score: 8.5/10

Quality game by a good company, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is pretty enjoyable. Definitely worth playing if you never have before.

So, I owned this game back on CD until that one broke, and when it appeared on Steam, it didn't take me long to make the decision to re-acquire it.
This game is one of the classics and my personal favorite of the series (maybe, mabye tied with Blood Money).
Don't expect HD graphics as the game is fairly old, but they still hold up and the gameplay makes well up for it.
The game mostly gives you free reign over how you deal with your missions, wether you go in guns blazing or infiltrate the building disguised as the milkman, take out your target and leave without anyone ever knowing better; the only consequence being a distinct shift in your overall mission ratings (though wether or not a Mass Murderer rating is good or bad is still technically up to you. *wink*).
What you have to know is that if you play it quiet, you play it slow. Be prepared to wait for good whiles to learn guard routes or for your target to be in the perfect spot; be prepared to reload often (if you're a perfectionist) when things didn't go as planned, or quickly adapt to your new situation.
So, overall, if you enjoy the thought of being the unseen angel of death that puts Altair and Ezio to shame, or if you played and enjoyed any of the other Hitman titles (and for some reason don't already have this one), this is a definite must-have.

As my first experience with that genre, the Hitman series turned me into a stealth addict!

I remember back when I was in college, I borrowed Hitman : Codename 47 from a close friend of mine. He told me : "It's an amazing game, non-linear, and you can choose the way you want to complete your objectives and kill your targets. There, for instance, there is that mission in which you can disguise as a waiter and poison the food."

So when I tried that very mission a few days later, I would just end up on the roof, and snipe the target from a small concealed window, because screw the poisonned food : hiding on the roof like a coward was the way I did it, and it worked.

This game was so much fun! I spent my evenings on it - almost didn't pass my school year because of that, but it was worth it. Sure, I was struggling with the hardest missions, but enjoying beating them nonetheless. Eh. killing a drug lord with a minigun has its own benefits.
Two weeks later, I gave the game back to my friend and said "Boy, that was INSANE."

You will easily understand how excited I was when he told me they did a sequel called Silent Assassin! The fangirl in me HAD to try this.

(Besides, I'd like to thank my friend Liam sooo much for gifting me the whole Hitman collection for Christmas 2012. Liam, if you read this... you're awesome and I love you.)

I then got the opportunity to try the second game, which improved a lot from the first. More freedom, an incredible amount of missions, a really clever plot, and a great difficulty. It's a must-have for all Stealth lovers, and some of the best Hitman missions are to be found in that second episode. I mean, you can murder evil twins, one of them eating crisps and pizzas in the basement of a Malaysian airport, the other relaxing in his jacuzzi at the top of a highly guarded skyscraper. You'll never see that again in your life.

Then Blood Money followed. Graphically, it was a stunning improvement, but the gameplay also was a lot deeper : body hiding, weapon customisation, beverage poisoning, etc... Blood Money is the core of all good stealth mechanics. And those custom newspaper articles at the end of each mission are hilarious! That third episode is worth gold, and I really recommend your to play it!

I finally acquired Contracts when it released on Steam, as known as Silent Assassin's spiritual sequel, which subtly links the events from the original game, with a certain chapter found in Blood Money's cutscenes. Apart from Contracts being a much darker game than the others, it's an awesome addition to the series.
Half of the missions are remakes of the memorable ones from Codename 47; they were redesigned completely, so the layout of the maps and the buildings have changed, and there's even more places to explore, and exciting ways to finish your job successfully.

Well, I could talk about Hitman for hours, or relate my funniest anecdotes, but the best you could do for now, is try by yourself and embody the well-known Agent 47 for the best assignments of your life.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: January 1, 2014
The Hitman series is a piece of history. I think this game was the fruition of the stealth/action genre, and its effective implementation have inspired dozens of other games, including Assasin's Creed. Hitman 2 is my favorite, not because it's the best, but because it was one of the first PC games I fell in love with. The atmospheric mood, soundtrack, and art stylization really drew me in and have greatly influenced what I look for in the medium. While the gameplay has dated, the effective combination of other aspects have kept it consistently in my top 20, even a decade later.

Gameplay: 5
In a post Assasin's Creed world, it has definitely dated. At the time, however, the controls and AI were stellar.

Story: 6
Nothing revolutionary, but it serves to draw together the wide variety of locations presented in the game.

Art: 9
The mood and atmospheres are incredible. No other game at the time captured the diversity of worlds so well with so little graphically, justifying literally hundreds of hours of slow sneaking - without ever feeling dry or boring. This combined with the music makes it a classic.

Music: 9
Jesper Kyd is a master. At a time when most games featured popish midi synth, he had his soundtrack was performed by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra.

Should you play this?
If you haven't played this before, you likely won't be impressed. But if you like classic games and want to see a bit of history, enjoy it for the fantastic environmental moods the game creators were able to capture. For those of you who enjoyed it 10 years ago, you'll appreciate a replay.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin provides an estimated duration of ten hours (parameter now average), an in my opinion very addictive, definitely living. Fans would highly recommend it as it is the better of the two chapters on the history of Agent 47 while those new to the saga recommend you try it, maybe at your neighborhood store, to see if the setting menus and commands may be to their liking. If you allow me, a final warning: do not be discouraged, this is a title designed to be extremely difficult, at times slightly frustrating (spend three afternoons trying to accomplish a mission may also get tired!) And then, if you want to play with, arm yourself with a good patience ... good luck, agents 47!
