This is the second iteration of the undeniably popular series featuring none other than the iconic bald clone badass, Agent 47. This title is renowned for setting in stone the unique stealth mechanics which would be found in all of the later games in the series. The soundtrack, which is produced by Jesper Kyd, is some of his most iconic work in the video game industry. That is saying a lot, as he has gone on since to create the music for Hitman: Blood Money, as well as Assassins Creed 2 and Borderlands. This game also showcases some of the most iconic set pieces in level design for any Hitman game, such as the "Saint Petersburg Stakeout" mission, and the "Jacuzzi Job" mission. This title was released for the Playstation 2, Xbox, PC and Gamecube of all consoles upon its release. Then, after over ten years and 2 Hitman games later, Silent Assassin was re-released with Contracts and Blood Money as a part of the Hitman HD Collection. Bolstering vastly upgraded graphics, this graced the Playstation 3 & Xbox 360 with the original Hitman experience for newcomers to the series. Every copy also came with a download code for the Sniper Challenge mission, which was the prelude to the upcoming Hitman: Absolution. Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is definitely a key staple in an amazing series and unequivocally a title that should not be overlooked.
