I'v played this game before, Just not on a PC. No gamepad support makes this game really wierd to play. There is something wrong with the sound. I love hitman and I hate that I can not play this because the controls are just stupid.
Although the Hitman stories have never been very in depth, I would recommend any fan of Absolution give this game a try. Do not worry about which order you have played the Hitman games, for this makes has no effect on your potential enjoyment of Blood Money. The lack of a score system in the corner of the screen makes Blood Money a much more open ended game. Although this game was released in 2006, if you have a graphics card that can run this software at full settings you will be pleasantly surprised. Six years later I have played this game time and time again. Give it a shot!
SOUND ISSUE: I don't know if I was just lucky, but I have had the sound issue others have described (I have a new machine, experienced choppy sentences). However, after getting about 4 or 5 minutes into the first mission it seemed to disappear. I recommend just giving this game a chance before you give up on it due to sound bugs.
