The first Hitman was made a long time ago and had so many flaws (hence why Contracts revisited so many levels). Silent Assassin was my first Hitman game, and where I fell in love with it – it was hard, the AI was pretty unforgiving (playing stealthily, at least), and it was fun collecting all the weapons then testing them all out.
Contracts took a decisively darker turn (I mean, you’re already a super-assassin), and the atmosphere was overall depressive. I found the missions easier and often more linear with few solutions to get SA and an AI that could be abused.
Then, along came Blood Money. It’s like Eidos learned what not to do with Contracts and made improvements all around.
Absolution seemed like a dirty hooker in makeup – fun to look at and fantasize about but dreadful to be in. Don’t get me wrong – it had some cool moments, good mechanics, but it just was wrong, compared to Blood Money.
Hitman 3 is the third and last installation of the World of Assassination trilogy. It is also the eighth overall game in the Hitman franchise. Although it is safe to say that this specific series has ended. There is no reason to believe that there will not be any future Hitman games.
Hitman is a classic stealth assassination game loved by millions of gamers worldwide. The game offers amazing graphics and allows players to immerse themselves in a dynamic and responsive world. The best part is that Hitman 3 is the first game in the series with full VR support. And can import maps and progress from the previous games in the trilogy.
