    Sometimes I wonder why such classics like this get released on platform they're clearly not designed for, with no effort being made with regards to changing the cotnrols to suit console. 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.Sometimes I wonder why such classics like this get released on platform they're clearly not designed for, with no effort being made with regards to changing the cotnrols to suit console.

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. Expand

    Played 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.

    While the awkward controls and trial-and-error gameplay design might deter some gamers, Hitman 2 is deep with the kind of gameplay that stealth and shooter gameplayers have been craving for on PS2.
  2. I was utterly addicted the moment I started playing Hitman 2. [Dec 2002, p.204]
  3. Smart gameplay couples with intelligent AI to make sure you're kept on your toes at all times through this deep, stealthy shooter.
