  1. The save game system and the control scheme add to the difficulty more than they should.

    A deep, refreshingly stylistic adventure that lets you play at the pitch you desire. [Dec 2002, p.83]
  3. Gory, sometimes more so than some would like, yet unique and ultimately satisfying.

    Silent Assassin is by far one of the greatest games I've ever played. Although the graphics may not be there, the story, gameplay and premiseSilent Assassin is by far one of the greatest games I've ever played. Although the graphics may not be there, the story, gameplay and premise completely shoots everything else out of the picture. The score is amazing, really developing the atmosphere of your location, and the exciting concept of hiding in plain sight just draws you in to keep on playing. I also think the score system is ingenious, whilst not being quite as good as Blood Money's, the whole 'Silent Assassin' goal keeps you focused, and not taking a poor run for the final result. This game really makes you think, which is something I want to get from a video game; I want to work hard to get to my goal, and if replaying the same mission a thousand times is what it takes to get it, I'll do so. Hitman: Silent Assassin is a fantastic game which is worth every penny. Full Review »
