There are quite a few Hitman games, and some of them are real stinkers. Hitman: Codename 47 is one of the better versions because the developers added more killing methods, they improved the guard’s intelligence, they reward stealth over murder, and they made the game harder. Hitman: Codename 47 is one of the first Hitman games to offer a harsh and merciless gameplay experience. The frustrating difficulty of the game is what makes it great, which is why the developers continued the trend in later sequels. Find a way to reach your target without being discovered, take out your target, and leave without the guards being alerted. Take out your target in Hitman: Codename 47 with stealth and without alerting the guards and you receive more rewards at the end of the game.
One of the better and less forgiving of the Hitman franchise
- Very challenging in a way that requires timing and skill
- Aiming and running controls are far better than its predecessors are
- The jungle level is infamous for being almost unbeatable
- Some people find the game much too difficult
