The main thing I love about this game is that there is no wrong way to kill your targets. Sure there are more interesting ways than just shooting them, but there is no right or wrong way to get the job done. However I do caution against going in guns blazing, you will definitely get brought down pretty quickly.
The graphics are nice and the music adjusts to go with the action which is just plain cool(try it with surround sound). The camera control is easy to get used to and you can play it as a FPS if you so choose. This is a solid game I liked every level (Mardi Gras was best). How ever there was a couple of things that keep me from giving it a Ten:
1. The story was a little hard to follow and had a few holes in it. 2. Once you finish the game there is no real reason to play it again. 3. Achieving the 'Silent Assassin' ranking gives you no reward and hardly worth it since you can pay to lower your notoriety. 4. While I LOVED the customized Silverballers, they take FOREVER to reload which is a huge problem when you have eight enemies bringing the heat. 5. There is a bit of trial and error in EVERY level, you will find yourself saving and reloading a lot in this game. That gets old pretty quick.
Don't let those minor problems stop you. Definitely check this game out!!! You wont be sorry!!!
Hitman: Blood Money is a very good game, it's hard to put the controller down. I've played the last two games and this is definitely the best one yet. The gameplay has improved a little, the graphics are better. The best improvement is the weapons. You actually earn money this time around for upgrading your weapons. After each mission you can read what the police discovered on the front page of the newspaper. So watch out for leaving any traces of your presence, such as guns, knives, or even witnesses. One of the only irritating things in the game is the A.I. Once in a while people will just start shooting at you for no reason. Just make sure to save as often as you can, that is if your not playing the Pro difficulty. Overall the game is worth the rent.
