This OG trilogy has the best Hitman games in existence. Absolution was already meh, but definitely worse, but those new Hitman games are absolute f*cking garbage,
Hitman Blood Money has legendary status, nothing can ever touch that game, best balance in the whole franchise, followed by Hitman Contracts and the of course Silent Assassin, because let's be honest, SA was the worst right after Codename 47.
This trilogy is a great example of too little, too late. Don’t get us wrong: Agent 47 and all his perils mashed into a trilogy pack make for a great way to spend your day, but it should have released before Absolution. With the physics being completely outdated and the so-so graphics, it drains our primitive need to play. We just play for old times’ sake and we still love it.
While the original model, texture and animation work of these three Hitman titles hasn’t held up all that well, the actual technical work done on this HD collection is solid. There’s widescreen, a higher resolution and undoubtedly a better frame rate than the original titles - and that’s the best you can expect without stretching to be more of a remake than a straight port. Three games in one place for a budget price is pretty good, too.
Hitman HD Trilogy
This collection is good I was never a big fan of the hitman games because of the boring game-play but what is good about this series is they learn from their mistakes and keep making a better game.This collection gives you 3 hitman games Hitman 2 silent assassin ,Hitman contracts and hitman blood money.I think that Hitman 2 is not good at all but the other 2 games have good game-play better story and better level design.I recommend this collection to everyone who likes stealth games and also is good for the new comers to the series but I do not think it is worth the full price.
3 of the best stealth games of their generation now released in one affordable package. The question is are they still worth a shot. For my money Hitman 2 has not aged gracefully. 47 moves as fast a s a child wearing concrete shoes in a swamp and the A.I is schizophrenic to the point of a successful mission can be scampered by walking into the wrong toilet. All in all Hitman 2 is probably the least enticing to play again.
Contracts fares much better but the grey on black interface means that people playing on a small tv better invest in a microscope. due to the unaltered text and the cutscenes look like they are taking place underwater due to them not receiving the HD treatment.However A.I behavior and missions are far better and it plays smoother than Hitman 2.
However the top pick is Blood Money, still the best Hitman game money can buy. It is however a straight port from the 360 code but don't let that sway your decision as Blood Money remains the best assassination simulator to this day and is yet to be topped, in my opinion.
As for the whole package even with the lick of HD paint the games still show their age but playability wise it is only Hitman 2 that truly suffers. There were no extras with the PS3 version whereas the 360 version has an art book I believe. Overall its still worth a romp through Hitmans hits but if you still have the original games I can't really recommend an additional purchase.
SummaryEngage in more than 40 missions from three Hitman games, each re-mastered in high definition. Whether you're a veteran or new to the franchise, this is your chance to take on the contracts that defined the series and helped establish Agent 47 as the world's deadliest assassin.
