Death Is His Business. And Business Is Good!!

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.

Visit the dark recesses of a world corrupted by crime, greed, degradation and dishonor. Your targets may hide in the most remote areas of the planet, but their destruction is never prevented - only postponed. Master the tools of your trade and remember: rash decisions bleed consequences. Know when to strike instantly, know when to take your time. Chance favors the prepared player. Failure is not an option, it is a privilege reserved for those who do not try hard enough. You have returned, and you will track down the organization that forced you out of retirement. You may find that the enemy is closer than you think.

Reviews:

GameSpy by Scott Osborne

"Keeping suspicion 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."
