To us society is normal. We walk the streets fearing no one and nothing. Yet through his ice blue eyes, Agent 47 sees a world of potential threat and danger. He watches interested, but uninvolved. Your time has come to enter the Hitman’s world. A world where you trust no-one but yourself, a player in a deadly game, a warrior on a battlefield most people don’t even know exists.
This slick 3rd person action-adventure game presents a mix of stealth and combat. As the Hitman you must move without sound, kill without emotion, and disappear without trace. There are many ways to finish a mission and it is up to you to find the best, most silent one. At your disposal is an impressive arsenal of weapons and gadgets available for purchase between missions. Carry out your ‘hits’ effectively and a story of greed, power, and jealousy will start to unfold, in addition to a considerable amount of blood money.

Hitman is a game where you complete various contracts in creative ways, using stealth, deception, gadgets and sometimes good old firepower.
The first game is nowhere near as refined as the later editions. It is also very unforgiving. Only 1 save game slot per enormous mission. Despite this I persisted with it on release, even completing the fantastic and brutally difficult finalread more level with great satisfaction.
Highly recommended for the patient old gamer

Codename 47 is less forgiving than the later games in the series. The entire Jungle section has become somewhat of an infamous thing. The bad part of any Io Interactive game, to be repeated by snowy japan in the second game in the series and more "jungly" section in Kane & Lynch.
But besides that, Codename 47 also had the best missions in the series, before Blood Moneyread more got releases. The first level blew my mind in 2001, when i understood that i culd finish it in about 7 minutes without being seen by enemies.
The most unforgiving part of C47 is the fact, that there are no saves at all - if you die, you have "lives" and you just respawn. Thing is, if you die, you've probably been seeing and alarm has gone off, and you respawn only to face consequences of that. Obviously, every level is supposed to be replayed until you get it right, your idea of right as in the latter games, as you can just kill everyone who stands in the way. But the lack of saves can become somewhat of the problem, whith bigger levels and it also seems to be the reason why some missions are divided in several levels unlike the more "complete" vision of them in the later Contracts game.
Codename 47 may not have some of the good ideas, added to the series in later games. But it still is one of the best and you will feel incredible every time you find a way to finish the level in the cleverest way possible.
P.S. It's a bit strange, that there's no soundtrack with the game. This is the game, where Jesper Kyd's music got attention it deserved.

This game was revolutionary when it was released. It was the first game where you could kill any enemy, steal his clothes, and impersonate him. The ragdoll physics in this game were incredible, and the mission design--though insanely difficult--was excellent.
There were multiple ways to finish a mission, and it was always enjoyable to play a level twice--each in an entirelyread more different way. When you pulled off a level flawlessly without being seen, it was very rewarding. The slow motion addition (pressing Scroll Lock at any time) was just icing on the cake.
This was a very smart, very underrated game--and still my favorite from the series.
