  • 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] Expand

    An epic experience from beginning to end, filled with dark humour, lots of action and most importantly the perfect blend of engrossing story and engaging gameplay.

    Blood Money is without question the best Hitman yet, and although it can be punishing at times, it's also hugely compelling and stylish. [June 2006, p.78]
  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. It's overall a solid title with a couple little glitchy AI issues that don't take too much away from things.
  5. 80
    All 13 of the game's missions are well crafted and challenging, but after four iterations of this series, I felt a need for a new challenge.
  6. All in all, however, Hitman Blood Money is a worthwhile experience. The satisfaction of seamlessly pulling off an assassination and raking in the highest reward makes all the trial and error worthwhile and, frustration aside, the act of playing through a mission again in an attempt to end up with less notoriety or more money becomes challenging rather than tedious.

    With Eidos' latest foray into professional assassination, players will have to dig deep, wading through mission after mission of trial-and-error gameplay to hunt down a series of targets. [June 2006, p.49]

    This is definitely the best game in the Hitman franchise.
    I just don't like the new ones at all, I mean they brought back the big open levels
    This is definitely the best game in the Hitman franchise.
    I just don't like the new ones at all, I mean they brought back the big open levels and possibilities, but it seems so obviously scripted.
    Silent Assassin also has nothing on this.
    Hitman Blood Money has absolute Legend status like Saints Row 2 and GTA SA.

    Hit Man: Blood Money is truly challenging and the graphics are awesome. Additionally, the fact that there is no right way of completing a Hit Man: Blood Money is truly challenging and the graphics are awesome. Additionally, the fact that there is no right way of completing a stage makes it even more interesting yet be warned the contracts are challenging to say the least. Expand

    A few clarifications for previous reviews. 1: There's only no saving if you choose the highest difficulty setting. Otherwise, A few clarifications for previous reviews. 1: There's only no saving if you choose the highest difficulty setting. Otherwise, there's mid-level saving, but it's limited to a certain number (to prevent people from quicksaving constantly and negating a lot of the challenge), and the saves aren't kept after quitting a level. The mid-level saves are used as a "handicap" of sorts to help balance the gameplay on the easier levels. The game permanently records your progress at the end of each level on any difficulty. 2: Earlier reviewers have complained about the console version's controls, but the PC version is very easy to control, especially if you're used to first-person shooter controls. 3: There were complaints of long load times in an earlier review, but I've noticed no such problems in the PC version; this may be a console-specific issue. (Also, the Hitman's look is unchanged from previous installments - and the only thing he has in common with Vin Diesel is a bald head.) Expand
