Agent 47, a former high-target hitman for an international contractor, has spent his life hunting world-wide criminals, terrorists, arms dealers, mafiosos, and militants (for a price). Now, he has decided to reform himself and retire to a church in Sicily, where he works as a gardener and has given his life to God. However, he quickly becomes engulfed in an elaborate conspiracy as an anonymous organization kidnaps his friend, the resident priest. In exchange for help on finding the priest, Agent 47's former employment agency sends him on a series of missions to eliminate rogue Russian generals, an illegal weapons dealer, several terrorist spearheads, and a violent cult leader. Ultimately, however, he is led back to his quest to hunt down and eliminate the mysterious man that kidnapped the priest. Written by Flotis

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 »


Afghan Civilian: Hello and God's peace, my friend! Mr. 47, I'm very honoured. I have your supplies. It is very powerful. Take care nobody sees it, that's very dangerous. The Khan is returning soon. Maybe you can stop him, maybe before the gate in East. May Allah help and protect you, Mr. 47!
Hitman: Agent 47: Thank you. Better get out of the way. This will get messy!

User Reviews

Fairly good, but not for the "gamer of gore"
2 February 2003 | by QuackleSee all my reviews

If you are the sort of person to enjoy games full of blood and guts, this is not the game for you. You are an assassin and in every mission you have to kill a specific person, and getting detected reduces points.

Hence, I found this game rather boring if you can't go in guns blazing all the time, but you may find it enjoyable.
