"I'm going to my shed. Time to dig out the past. "

"Enter the realm of a retired assassin, forced back into action by treason. You may be a hired killer but you still have a sense of loyalty and justice. Visit the dark recesses of a world corrupted by crime, greed, degradation and dishonor. And a past that catches up with you.

Trust no one - if the price is right, the finger of your most trusted ally will be on the trigger. Your targets may hide in the most remote areas of the planet, but their destruction is never prevented - only postponed.

Learn your trade - master your tools - overcome your obstacles - outsmart your enemies - eliminate your targets. Remember: rash decisions bleed consequences. Know when to strike instantly, know when to take your time. Chance favors the prepared. Failure is not an option." -HitmanHQ.com <-----

Story- The story is not creative, its not another hostage tale. Where Agent 47 must come out of retirement and save his good friend, Father Vittorio from Sicily's Church. Could've been a bit more creative with the plot, yet it is still very descent. It is very easy to follow, before every mission there will be a briefing of your objectives, your targets story and current whereabouts. Its pretty amazing, feels like you;re an actual assassin getting ready for a mission. 8/10

Graphics- The graphics in the game are completely amazing around the time it came out. The environments are almost life-like, as well are the people interacting with it, For example, shooting a person impacts them according to weapon, their blood splatters everywhere, IF hit close to a wall, the blood gushes at the wall and you can actually see the blood squirming down. Absolutely incredible! 10/10

Sound- The sound top notch in the game as well as the music. The music will play according to what you do, if you're Silent during the play of a level the music plays slow, its also very eerie when playing, but if there's a gun fight and there's bullets flying everywhere...the music fits the mood making it more fun for you. You could almost feel the adrenaline rushing through your body when you hear the soundtrack. 9/10

Controls- The controls in the game are descent. Before the missions even start, you could choose to play a small practice by the church. Again, controls are fairly descent, just takes a few minutes to really feel and learn them all. 8/10

Well I'm guessing that is all, Hitman overall is amazing must buy game. I give it an overall average of 9/10. -CG.

Rating:   4.5 - Outstanding
