Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is the second part of the Hitman series, which tells us about the killer clone.

The game takes place in 2002-2003.
The story begins after the events of Hitman: Codename 47 (the first part of the series). Agent 47 left a killer job, and now he is trying to start a quiet life, living simply and working as a gardener in a monastery under the patronage of the father, Emilio Vittorio. But life soon turns against him. Mafia kidnaps Emilio. Desperate, 47 switches back to the Agency he previously worked for to ask them to help him find Emilio. The Agency agrees to help him, but in exchange for the fact that he will fulfil several orders. The protagonist accepts.

The game has fixed a lot of flaws of the first part: the management of the game has been improved and simplified, the first-person view and a suspicion indicator has been added, which allows the player to understand how close the enemies are to reveal him. The ranking system was also added. After each mission, the player receives a rank for the quality of its execution.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin reviews and comments

The Game no longer works. I don't get the Game to run on Windows 10 anymore. Whether that's because of the Windows version or other Things, I don't know. Yeah, I've been Browsing The Discussion pages and yes, I've tried some of it. As a result, the Introductory Video was played at Minimum Speed and the Menu appeared. At the Start of a new Game, however, the Screen remains black. No, I'm not going to browse the whole Internet for the last Tip and No, I'm not going to turn all the Settings on my PC around to make it run after all. Rating: 0/10 So it doesn't get me anything, no matter how good the Game may have been otherwise.

This Title is the second Installment in the Hitman franchise. Our Balding order Killer has retired and lives in an Italian Monastery. His Priest is kidnapped by the Mafia and so on and so forth. The Story is a bit weak, but in the Series actually no Problem. What Is important is that this is a Sneak Game. Due to the fact that the Game mechanics are not as mature as in the later Parts, this developed into a Shooter for me, which made the Game a little trickier. Graphically, the Game can't keep up with today's Games, but was certainly well ahead of the First day at the Release date in the fourth Quarter of 2002. I even go so far as to say that some of today's Games are supposed to cut off a Slice of all the hitman titles. Recommended for anyone who wants to play a "Classic" and for every Fan of the Hitman series!!!!

The 2nd Installment of the Hitman-series. This Game has pretty much improved everything there was in the first Part. The AI, Graphics, Gameplay and Soundtrack. However, I start from the Very beginning. The Story: The Story of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is very good, but I wouldn't say it's better than the one in Part 1. Agent 47 has fled to a Church in Sicily since the End of Part 1. There he tries to find Peace and find out the Reason for his Life. However, this Calm is disturbed when the Sicilian Mafia kidnaps the Priest and you get back into the one you are best: Kill. This Story doesn't have such a big plot twist. Basically, though, she's very good for a sneaking game. The Gameplay: Finally memory points! Well, no Memory Points, but you can save up to 7 times in a Level if you want. At some Levels you get extra Saves. The AI has also been improved. She doesn't shoot your Head away for no Reason now. However, there is a Chance that they will discover you even if you have a Disguise on. To Do this, however, you have to behave conspicuously, such as running too much. So AI has become more comprehensible overall. There are now also several effective Ways to kill an Enemy. As I said, everything has actually got better. The Graphics are still very nice to watch for a 2002 Game and the Soundtrack is just gorgeous. The Best I've ever heard in a Game. Again, praise for Jesper Kyd, who created the Soundtrack. I recommend the Game if you are interested in Hitman and you may have liked the first Part.
