Hitman Blood Money - PC Game

Conclusion

Conclusion

So does this game offer us anything new? Well it builds upon an already very well built game and offers us a variety of new features. The all new "Glacier Game Engine" includes a number of new moves and a revamped AI system makes the game a lot more enjoyable to play.

There is also an online statistics system where you can upload your Hitman status results and compare yourself to other players worldwide. Although this is a good feature, I’d like to potentially see a multiplayer option in future titles.

Blood money is another fantastic addition to the Hitman series. It builds upon an already solid foundation and incorporates a number of new features that would justify the purchasing of this game. The new notoriety system adds to the challenge as careless early missions cost you in the latter ones. Additionally the new payment system allows you to sculpt your character in your own personal way and really does add to the depth of the game. With a potential "love interest" for Agent 47 in the next Hitman game, the character is certainly growing along with the game itself.

Pro's
+ Many ways to complete missions
+ New hand to hand combat system
+ Improved control setup over previous Hitman
+ Excellent graphics with a new gaming engine
+ Fantastic orchestral soundtrack

Con's
- The new additions do not fundamentally alter the core experience of the game compared to previous Hitman's
- Levels can be confusing as there are so many ways in which to complete them
- Save games are not retained after you exit the game
- No multiplayer option

Gamers Choice

Hitman Blood Money can be purchased from Play.Com for around £18.

I have the 360 version of this and it's awesome - if a little harder to aim than the PC

I managed to get 10 mins to read this in work and I must say it was a good read! Fair doos Ins

Never really played the old Hitmans and didn't rate them much, but this one reviewed seems to have a fair bit of depth to it.

Yea I tried the demo for this game. It is fun, but I would have liked a little more control. Like instead of just pushing a button to jump from balcony to balcony I would have liked to be in charge of doing it myself.
