When you kill for money, there are no rules, only contracts to be executed.
Hitman 3: Contracts takes you deeper into the mind of Agent 47. Enter a world of crime, sin and greed. Encounter his greatest adversaries, completing the work that made him so ruthlessly efficient and deadly precise, the ones that shaped him as an assassin.
Travel anywhere the work requires and take on assignments in Paris, Hong Kong, Siberia, England, and many more. Understand that nothing counts except the target. Anyone can kill, but can they make the perfect hit? Take on the role of 47 and do what you must to get the job done, because in a professional Hitman's hands everything becomes a weapon.

When "Codename 47" premiered in 2000, it was strictly a PC-only affair. Since the second part of the series was such a giant leap in quality, instead of simply porting the then-outdated first game to consoles, IO created this sort-of remake. Only about half of the missions are brand new, the rest are glossier, fine-tuned versions of levels that appeared in "Codename 47". What reallyread more sets this entry apart is its dark and dirty tone. One of the early levels takes place in a slaughterhouse, where the grotesquely overweight owner is throwing an S&M party amidst rotting carcasses, all the while his mentally deranged sibling goes about mutilating a kidnapped girl to the tune of Paul Anka's "Put your head on my shoulder". It‘s downright nasty at times, even to the point of making you feel a little queazy.
As per usual, you‘ll be able to go about your murderous business in any way you choose. You can storm the place guns blazing, or go for a more challenging, stealthy approach. Either works remarkably well. Add to that another phenomenal score by Jesper Kyd and you‘re left with a highly atmospheric, surprisingly sinister reinterpretation of the original game that I can‘t recommend highly enough.

After a successful stint with Freedom Fighters, IO decided to return to the Hitman series and thus Hitman Contracts was born. As opposed to Hitman 2's more grandiose tone, Hitman Contracts is dark and moody . Colors are dim, environments are oppressive-looking and the soundtrack consists of gloomy electronica, rather than vivacious classical music. The levels are large and allowread more for multiple ways to subdue your targets, depending on whether you prefer to go in guns-blazing or sneak your way through. The AI and level design have seen improvements since 2, as figuring out what disguise is most appropriate for entry of certain areas is far more intuitive and enemies only start firing at you when you obviously screw around. Sneaking and shooting are equally effective methods of completing your mission, as opposed to H2 where certain levels had a clearly preferable method (I'm looking at you, Japanese castle). However, Contracts also has almost half as many missions (half of which were remastered from the first game-IO was given only 8 months to develop this game) and an inconsequential story (Hitman is injured in some mission, has flashbacks, recovers). If you can overlook those issues, this is one dark journey worth taking.

I admit, I started playing the Hitman series from this game, thus it gives me more nostalgia. On the first try, I was a "Mass Murderer" in every mission I played, though after several replays I got the "Silent Assassin rating" across all the board. I replayed it, I think, 5 or 6 times, and will do it again. Every time you replay it, you can kill targets in a different fashion.read more Your target will suffer, anyway. Good luck to all Agent 47's out there !
