Death Is His Business. And Business
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

with you. Trust no one. If the price is right, the finger of your most trusted
ally will be on the trigger.

GameSpy by Scott Osborne
to a minimum is a big part of Hitman 2's gameplay. An enemy suspicion indicator
and various messages about guard status give you a really good idea of how
characters are reacting to your attempts at infiltration and disguise. (It's
not necessarily easy to disguise a tall, bald hitman with a bar code on the
back of his head, after all.)..."
"Whether shooting or sneaking, the game world is brought to
life with some really attractive graphics. Some character animations could have
used more work, and the first-person weapon models look amateurishly out of
scale, but the exotic locales are all richly detailed and colorful. Little
details, like remarkably realistic candle flames or swirling snowfall help draw
you into the game, as do the unusually realistic lighting effects that cast
dynamic shadows as characters walk. The vivid sound effects and ominous
orchestral score also build tension and excitement."
