    The game is fun the first time through, all though damn frustrating at times.

    A deep, refreshingly stylistic adventure that lets you play at the pitch you desire. [Dec 2002, p.83]

Hitman 2 is an absolute gem but the controls on PS2 are unbareable in every way. The button layout is random and not logical, senistivity is non-existent, it';s not responsive and overall it's very clunky. The graphics on this game aren't particularly good, but they're hideous on PS2 compared to PC. It's a lazy port to cash in on extra sales from the best-selling console without making any effort to make the game suitable. Full Review »

    Played and finished the game on PS3 on expert difficulty. The controls are terrible and AI is even more terrible, it's frustrating. The gamePlayed and finished the game on PS3 on expert difficulty. The controls are terrible and AI is even more terrible, it's frustrating. The game clearly haven't aged well, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty(2001) is like from the other planet. If you want to play old sneaking game with amazing story, play MGS 2. Full Review »
