  • Summary: When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are systematically eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until suddenly he loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target,When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are systematically eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until suddenly he loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing. Agent 47 is back and this time he's paid in cold, hard cash. How the money is spent will affect his passage through the game and the weapons at his disposal, resulting in a unique gameplay experience for each player. Powered by a new version of Io's stunning Glacier engine, Hitman: Blood Money delivers the most brutal and realistic simulation of life as the world's deadliest assassin. [Eidos Interactive] Collapse

  1. This episode has more depth than the two previous follow- ups, and its developer, IO Interactive, has introduced many intelligent refinements.
  2. 90
    Hitman: Blood Money accomplishes what it set out to do, improve on an already successful game formula with minor improvements that fans have been asking for. Both seasoned veterans and new comers to the series will take well to this game that tackles the world of contract killing, with a sadistic smile.
  3. In the end, Hitman: Blood Money does come out on top as the best title in the series. Blood Money makes up for most of its faults and shortcomings by offering a load of new features and entirely new ways of completing mission objectives.
  4. Agent 47 has a slew of new moves at his disposal this time around. Combine that with the notoriety system and accidental death feature and you have a solid experience.
  5. 80
    There is a little more accessibility on all fronts, controls, AI behavior, and combat. The level design is consistently good, and each new level requires a smart, logical approach to beat it.
  6. 80
    Though all the elements are familiar, IO has polished them up and the end result is like a favorite dish: You know what it tastes like, but you're still looking forward to eating it.
  7. The gameplay can get glitchy, with flaws like jumpy video and bad physics and a point-of-view camera that sometimes shows bad angles.

    This game takes the cake for sure. I have nevered played the Hitman series so this is new to me. I have played every single game for the 360 This game takes the cake for sure. I have nevered played the Hitman series so this is new to me. I have played every single game for the 360 and this one is one of the best right now. Sure the graphics could be a little better but it is sure better than most of them out there. I have played oblivion for weeks but this game has way more entertainment value than that game. Where can you be a deadly assasain or if you want just take out the M4 and sweep the city. I think this game is a must have! My only gripe would be maybe to have more action with the controls rather than just hitting up to jump gaps and windows and stuff. For the most part the game is fantastic. You have different ways to play the game and to master. Expand

    Hitman, toujours une série à succès et on comprend pourquoi avec ce Blood Money qui garde l'idée géniale d'incarner un assassin dans le mondeHitman, toujours une série à succès et on comprend pourquoi avec ce Blood Money qui garde l'idée géniale d'incarner un assassin dans le monde réel, sans gadgets improbables à la Tom Clancy et avec un réalisme et une cohérence remarquables. De déguisement en déguisement, on progresse jusqu'à ses cibles en surveillant la "tension", le fameux indicateur qui concorde souvent avec la tension du joueur d'ailleurs.

    Il faut beaucoup d'observation et de patience, l'IA étant la plupart du temps très logiquement suspicieuse... ce qui implique un rythme posé pour ne pas dire assez lent quand on découvre les niveaux. Cela dit, quand ça dérape (et ça peut déraper très rapidement), on passe au plan B et on bute tout le monde... Le jeu laisse toujours le choix de l'approche et c'est sa grande qualité. Blood Money fait aussi preuve d'un humour discret mais pas moins féroce et cynique, c'est appréciable.

    Dommage que le nombre de sauvegardes soit limité dès le mode de difficulté normale, des sauvegardes temporaires qui plus est ! puisqu'on si on quitte le jeu, on se retrouvera au tout début de la mission. Un peu énervant... Si les possibilités sont nombreuses, elles ne sont pas toujours très évidentes et on peut remarquer quelques bugs dans les scripts de comportement qui ne se déclenchent pas toujours comme il faudrait.

    Les menus sont vilains mais graphiquement ça reste propre et fluide et le maniement ne pose pas de souci bien qu'on ait vu mieux sur d'autres jeux au pad. Un bon point pour la musique de Jesper Kyd, jamais intrusive et toujours agréable.

The level of mediocrity in display here is matched only by how frustrating the game actually is. I would literally be ashamed to have my name part of the credits. I wouldn't care that much normally, but the game has so much potential that it truly feels it deserved better; Starting with proper programmers. What a waste. Expand
