Did You Know?


The original Hitman was in third person and without mid level saves. The developers added a first person option and limited saves to this sequel after fans protest that it was too hard and the third person camera too awkward. See more »

User Reviews

Brilliantly savage, beautifully written and excessively thrilling
5 September 2011 | by speedupvishnuSee all my reviews

There are two types of stealth based video games - one, which requires the players to hide in the shadows, avoid lights and scrape by, and the other, which requires the player to blend into the environment. Hit-man 2 - Silent Assassin tops in the second category. This was the first Hit-man game I played, and as usual the game did manage to get my eyeballs properly. The levels are really tough and mind-boggling but experienced players will have no problem getting through the 'Normal' and 'Expert' mode. But 'Professional' is a really hard one. But each stage, would require more than one rendition to clear. The A.I is brilliantly scripted, and you can feel that there everywhere. You can't control the environment, like you did in H1, but this time the scenario is really difficult. The player controls could be beefed up a little bit, because you feel the game is slow at times. All in all, the game rocks. And it offers chances for coming back and playing the game once again.
