If it wasn't short, I'd give it a 10
18 July 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The Hit-man series is one that I have seen around A LOT! I knew the premise, Agency creates genetic experiment to be the perfect assassin and he kills people and that it was a stealth game but I never really branched into playing it until I played this. I played it first because the only other way I can play Hit-man games is to buy 2, 3 and 4 on a much higher price and I wasn't sure if I was a fan yet.

Okay the story, Agent 47 assassinates someone he works with at The Agency and her dying wish is that 47 protects this teen-aged girl who was experimented on, just as he was. With a change of heart towards the Agency, 47 does all he can to stop the people who want her for financial gain (or in some cases - otherwise) and give her the opportunity he never seemed to have.

The story is actually really good. I do find Agent 47 interesting although it might be because I have never played another Hit-man game but that's it - He's interesting. I also think the villains do stray a little bit towards them being weak - That might have to do with the fact that I saw very little personality if at all between them and that the game is short to the extent that they are never really fully developed... That might actually go for every single character in this game. If it was longer by about another 5 or 10 missions - I'd love this game.

The game-play is nothing short of fantastic. There are a few ways to dispatch of targets - One of them is the standard way, shoot them. But another way is to get really creative with the props around you - to make it look as if you killing these people were just accidents. The levels can be re-selected so you can play them again and boy can that be fun in the way of you trying to beat the score you made last time. The score system is if you kill your target - you get 50,000 points, If anyone gets in the way or if you go guns a blazing then the game punishes you for it by taking away points.

I'd also say the disguise system is really good but one thing KILLS it. If you walk around other people whilst maintaining this disguise you'll hear "Where have I seen you before?" or "Hey is that the new guy!" as if every single person who threatens you completing the mission has a photographic memory. I mean this is nitpicking - I know but when you're playing 20 missions, each having dozens of guards asking if you're new or thinking it's suspicious that they don't have a photographic memory of who you are - yes it does get annoying.

So will I play the other Hit-man games? Yes. I feel as if there is potential to take this to different angles and I do find Agent 47 interesting enough to return to as a character even if in the long run I didn't really care about what was happening. If you want to play it I'd say if you can rent the game then that would make things much better on yourself but aside from it's length I'd consider this being almost as good as other European games like Mafia: City Of Lost Heaven.
