Ranking the Hitman games from best to worst

8. Hitman: Contracts (2004)

More side step than evolutionary step, Contracts is a fun game in its own right.


Contracts brought back Agent 47 in a game that shared a lot of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin’s DNA. This looked and played just like the earlier game, which wasn’t a bad thing taking into account how good Silent Assassin was.

Despite the lack of core upgrades, Contracts delivers plenty of new levels to enjoy. Granted, some were remixes of earlier ones, such as the one in which 47 must escape from a hospital before a SWAT team arrives. The meat packing level, full of deranged butchers, is a classic, though. And new weapons like the meat hook made this thrilling for those wanting more of what Hitman 2: Silent Assassin did so well back in 2002.

Came out on: PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Xbox.
