Hitman is back and better than ever. I was very exited to play this game, and its nice to get away from all these first person games like Halo 4and the new Call Of Duty. The game is about when Agent 47 kills one of his targets he feels guilt for the first time, and the only way to get over his guilt is to fulfill his targets dying wish and that is to protect her daughter. The game is a really good stealth game, and it was a fairly long game took me 12 hours to finish. One of the problems I had with this game is that it was limited. There were only 2 game modes, caimpain and contracts. Contracts is where you set up your own missions to challenge your friends. Another issue I had with this game is that when you put on a disguise everyone with that outfit on every one with the same outfit on will detect you. As if they know who everyone is. You can press the instinct button but you can only use it for a limited time. That's all this game is about, being limited. That's why I am giving this game a 7. The game is fun but I just wish that there were more things to do in the game. I JUST WISH IT WASN'T SOOOOOOO LIMITED!!

Don't let the bad reviews of this game fool you, it is amazing!

That said, it isn't for everyone. If you are a gun and run fan, this will bore you. In order for Hitman to be enjoyed, as with every title in this outsanding series, you must enjoy stealth games. The pacing is slow, the gunfights will kill you. You have to stick to the shadows, use disguises, and strategy to decide the best way to procede through a level. I have played and loved every game in this series, and this one is an amazing addition with tons of new ways to assassinate your tagets. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay is magnificent, and the story is interesting enogh with amazing voice acting.

The game is not without it's flaws, however. The need to use instinct when in a disguise is frustrating and takes away from the experience of killing someone only to steal their clothes. The game is fairly short and contracts mode, while fun, offered nothing to keep me playing once I defeated the main campaign.

This is one of those games that makes Gamefly totally worth it. It isn't worth the sixty bucks, due to lenght, but it is a must play for fans of the stealth genre.

BEWARE: you need patience and an understanding of the stealth genre to play. If you are looking for a COD paced action shooter, look elswhere.

Horrible

re-rent blood contracts or one of the first 2

After re-playing (or playing for first time) of those ones, you will see this game does not do them justice, but as a hitman that many play as a seriel killer, really really care about justice?
That is for you to decide after you re-rent one of the better hitman games.

Overall an obvious sell out, pandering to the current kids, and though not nearly at all as bad as Duke as this is enjoyable and decent-ish, maybe just maybe Agent 47 should have stayed gone.
