    A Great Game With Another Excellent Story Line HitMan Contracts Shows The Gamer In Side A HITMAN's MIND AND It's Really Really More Realistic Than Max Payne with those fake slow mo dives !

This is aided by some excellent graphics and a set of twisted scenarios you have to go through after completing the game to appreciate some brilliant warped humour.

    A very nice game that has great action sequences, and good control this game is also very hard AND fun. If you liked grand theft auto or the previous hitman series... get this game.

    Great game. But sloopy controls and hard to use wepaons like the syringe make you just pull out a AK or MG and go to town.

    It's got a nice open-ended style, a character that fits the gimmick, and plenty of violence.
  2. A glance back and a look forward in a PS2 title that does not advance the series but maintains the momentum.
  3. It’s best to think of Hitman: Contracts as a mini game to keep fans of the series satisfied until a true sequel is released.
