Hitman 2 is, without a doubt, one of the most superb shooter games I've ever played. However, it should be duly noted that it, like its predecessor, is not a normal shooter. If you like melee games like Unreal, Hitman 2 may not be for you. It's all about stealth. On the harder levels you cannot win if you just go around shooting everyone.
That said, this game excels at being a thinking man's shooter. You can make it through many missions and only kill your targets if you're careful. You can now drug people, so that they wake up later but you can still steal their keys, guns, etc.
Hitman can assume disguises if he finds them, or he can change into the clothes of dead adversaries. This allows him to infiltrate enemy territory without raising an immediate alarm. Unlike in the original game, however, guards now see through disguises quickly if you stay near them too long, or carry a gun they wouldn't normally carry. They're very smart.
The weapon selection is top-notch. Old favorites like the fibre wire, Hardballers (now called Silverballers), army m60, and the WA2000 Sniper are back, along with some new additions like the SPAS auto-shotgun and the hunter's crossbow. You can even get a silenced pair of Ballers if you beat the first mission without firing a single shot (think: anesthetic or fibre wire).
Controls are pretty much the same, with one crucial exception: you now hold a key down to toggle run/walk. In Hitman, there were 2 separate keys for run and walk. Now there's a forward key and a key you hold to run. Much more intuative, I think.
The only thing that detracts from the game is the overall interface; by this I mean the system of choosing missions. In Hitman, the player created a profile which kept a list of previous missions for easy replay. This is gone.

This game takes into detailed account all of the shortcomings of the first Hitman game, Agent 47. Good ol' 47 is back in this thrilling new game, and for those who haven't played the first one, you're missing part of what makes this game great.
Silent Assassin introduces in-game saves, (something that the first hitman, Agent 47, inexcusably left out) as well as a vastly improved musical score and some new weapons. The music, by the way, is performed by The Budapest Symphony, which is every bit as majestic as it sounds.
For the Duke Nuke'em and Quake 3 types, this is not necessarily the game for you. Go rambo and you'll find yourself 6 feet under by the time you can get out your cholroform. Stealth, secrecy, and patience are the orders of the day. You must watch the guards to figure out their patterns, search carefully for your foe; all while appearing normal. Another improvement to this game is the AI. Wearing a disguise WILL NOT allow you to simply waltz into the maximum security prison anymore.
Running, holding the wrong type of gun, or even hanging around a guard too long will make the bad guys suspicious. They don't like people behind them. Some will ignore you, some will avoid you, some will ask for ID, and some will just shoot you.
If you think you can be patient and discreet, and (usually) resist the urge to just stand there lookin' cute and when something moves you shoot, this is an outstanding game with to-die-for (well, to-kill-for) scenery. A few areas are rather droll, with few innocent bystanders -- much of the time everyone around is a guard, or sometimes the civilians are more observant than the guards. For those who have played Thief 2: The Metal Age, you know what I'm talking about.
Overall, this is an outstanding and challenging game. Though the list of missions is short, there is no limit to the number of ways to do them, and you'll enjoy performing them over and over again.

After playing and finishing all twenty-one levels in Hitman 2: Silent Assassin I feel confident that I can write an honest review. I'm one of the few who have played the first (Hitman: Codename 47) in the series and because of that I was curious to see Eidos and IO Interactive work on this sequel. The original contained many flaws and short comings so I was curious if the manufactures fixed all these flaws and if they truly this time made a great game.
The original crashed almost repeatedly and with the no game save feature you found yourself repeating the level over and over again. Hitman 2 never crashed on my machine and ran smooth and fluid throughout all the levels. The game adds in-game save features besides just the auto save presented in the original. Hitman 2 also added difficulty levels so people can adjust and play on the skill they believe that their on. The original did not contain in-game saves and difficulty levels. (4.75/5)
The music in the original only really accomplished of bringing the atmosphere of being a Hitman to life. For that I applaud it but the sound usually did not bring out the atmosphere of the many exotic locations and failed to be entertaining. The sequel not only matches the atmosphere of the place and being a Hitman but also is very entertaining. The downside is if you find yourself in the same part (like Russia, Japan, etc.) you will find they recycled a lot of the music. The sound effects in the sequel are sharp when you download a file off the hitman website. (4.5/5)
The graphics in the original were revolutionary; the graphics in the sequel are not. They are of course better than the three year-old game but could have been better.
