  • 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.

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]

    It's rare to see a game that gets everything so right: an intriguing storyline, an unbelievably cool main character, immersive graphics It's rare to see a game that gets everything so right: an intriguing storyline, an unbelievably cool main character, immersive graphics and detail, and gameplay that's free-form enough to offer thousands of strategies for any given level. Hitman: Blood Money encourages you to think, to plan, and to bring out your devious side - to use your imagination and creativity to achieve what might otherwise seem impossible. And once you've done it, you can do it again and again and again - and still never play a level the same way twice. If you're not afraid of a challenge, pick this one up. Expand

    A great game taht really lives up to the previous Hitman games and, in my opinion, exceeds them in some areas. Like in this game 47 is A great game taht really lives up to the previous Hitman games and, in my opinion, exceeds them in some areas. Like in this game 47 is portayed as a brutal killer, not a man that kills to live but still cares about people. Altough the graphics aren't that different and there are a few glitches you might encounter, but theese things are nothing new and have popped up in all the Hitman games so i can't see why you would start to make a big deal out of it now. Also there are moments were the game shines, like when you run through streets filled with people (and i mean filled! probably over 100 on your screen at most times) or when you find those little quirks in the game (like dropping a piano on somebodies head or taking everyone down with a tranquilizer gun etc.) and the usually magnificent areas and objective options that will make you play the levels forever just to see if there some funnier way to do it. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 is because of the regular glitches that can become annoying and the potential that was not completely fufilled (or the last game was just so great that they had a really hard time with making it better).

    "Blood Money" plays like the true sequel to "Silent Assassin". It sidesteps the surreal dark atmosphere of "Contracts" and takes place in"Blood Money" plays like the true sequel to "Silent Assassin". It sidesteps the surreal dark atmosphere of "Contracts" and takes place in sunny, picturesque locations. While the game feels familiar since it repeats the basic formula of its predecessors, there are a few standout features. The notoriety system helps bring a freshness to the gameplay. In this installment, you must keep your profile low or risk being in the next day's newspapers. However, you also have the option to payoff witnesses to keep your notoriety down. Another cool new addition is the ability to upgrade your weapons. Overall, the game is an absorbing action title. If you like the series, than you'll love this one. I would rate it with an 8.4 out of 10. Expand

As you progress you can get access to better upgrades for your weapons, and you are able to replay past levels with your upgrades. There is over a dozen ways to play each level and carry out your task. And although the AI basically knows what you're up to (it is extremely easy to get caught) This game has a fairly high replay value, and is a great stealth/optional shooter for any gamer out there that has always dreamed of being a hired assassin (in a video game of course).
