Head to the past as Agent 47 wanders in and out of delirium in Romania (in the year 2000, some time before the events of "Hitman 2"), reminiscing about his past missions as a corrupt French police inspector surrounds his apartment and prepares to eliminate him, and all the while the CIA, FBI and other international covert bodies begin to distance themselves from 47's agency. The game missions cover 47's memory of those past missions during this standoff. Written by Flotis

A darker sequel, but far from an evolution
29 April 2013 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Coming 2 years after Hit-man 2 it's hard to believe that a game from 2004 could look and feel so 1998. The story has Agent 47 collapse in a Paris hotel room where he has flashbacks to previous missions (including 4 remakes from the first game) while an unseen doctor helps him recover. The tone is darker and more personal, and it feels tighter, I just wish the lazy programming didn't spoil it.

There are 12 levels in total, and if you're just in it for the 'thrill' of mass murdering then you'll whisk though the entire game in a single day. If you're going for the 'Silent Assassin' rankings then you'll get a bit more mileage out of it. Your efforts might be spoiled by security guards and cops seeing through your disguise FOR NO REASON! You better be rock solid on your controller with no twitchy fingers if you want those rankings, and be prepared to scream at the monitor until your larynx disintegrates.

Hit-man: Contracts came in at the tail-end of the Sixth Generation of console video gaming and thus became dated very quickly. It's a lot tighter than the expansive, and slightly overwrought, Hit-man 2, but IO Interactive really should have refined the programming.
