Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

The story is not too complicated, but it serves as a pretext for Agent 47 returns to action

After what happened in the first part, our hero is removed to a church in Sicily, far from the madding crowd and accompanied by his spiritual guidance, a priest soon to be kidnapped by the mafia because of rumors that Mr. 47 has a huge fortune. To retrieve his beloved host, the agent will have to contact the agency, which will help in exchange for a "free" mission. How the father does not appear, and possibly feel alone, Hitman continues to work with the agency on a series of missions that will make us half the world and visit several possible ways to avoid political instability in the world.

In our journey we will complete 20 missions that will take us to places like St. Petersburg, Japan, Malaysia (with a stage at the Petronas Towers, two huge skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur almost starred in the film "The Trap") and India. These missions continue a short story each, and even be linked together; after each mission (or series) back to our shed Sicily, where we store our arsenal and we continue to face more missions.

Just as in the previous game, every mission will have its own goals and requirements, but we will have several ways to complete, according to our "style", although obviously the most rewarding game is the most stealthy as possible. Although the game gives us a more than reasonable freedom, stealth will be a must in some missions where a requirement is "not sound the alarm." These missions, but sometimes exasperating, are those that give greater depth to the game and force you to think strategies; the highlight of "The date in the park," the assault the Japanese castle and murdering Arab official.

Pros

  • The noise level, we must praise the excellent soundtrack
  • It is a deep action game that leaves a lot of freedom

Cons

  • A curious third-person perspective that places the camera right behind the bald protagonist

I have played this game to the end countless times on the easy, normal and hard difficulty levels. This game was created by IO interactive and distributed by Eidos Interactive. It is available in various platforms thus Xbox, Ps2 and Microsoft windows. It has good graphics thus great gameplay.

The game is about contract killing where the gamer “code name 47” takes up missions in different locations in the world for pay. It starts in a church in Sicily where agent 47 has retired and stays with father victorio. Father victorio is kidnapped by a Sicilian mafia boss known as Giuseppe Giuliano who holds him in a prison in his house basement, hence the first mission is to rescue father victorio from the mansion which 47 isn't lucky to accomplish though he kills the mafia boss. Therefore the agency through a handler named “Diana” contract 47 who works for them as a repayment in their attempt to find father victorio. In the final mission “redemption at gontranno” the objective is to save father victorio who is surrounded by assassins in the confession booth of the church. Before going for most of the missions which are 21 in total you have to go back to the garden shed where 47 keeps his weapons and quip yourself with weapons which range from a simple fiber wire to complex assault and sniper rifles.

In every mission you find new weapons which can be equipped for use on another mission. The main aim of the game is strategy with a ranking given after every successful completion of a mission, for instance if you kill a lot of people on a mission you are ranked as a “mass murderer”. You can be clinical by completing missions without being noticed by guards. The controls functions help you do a lot of actions like walking, crouching, climbing, running and leaning.

The best part about this game is the fact that it has three difficulty levels, Easy normal and hard. Hence you can play all the 21 missions three times, with a lot more thrill and adrenaline than before. The missions are challenging on the hard level especially if you don't have a stealth strategy as a gamer. I love this game and I can play it over and over again.

Pros

  • It has great graphics thus good gameplay.
  • It has diversity,thus every mission is in a different place.
  • There are a lot of weapons to choose from.

Cons

  • The missions are very challenging on the hard difficulty level.
  • It sometimes has little graphics flaws.
