Game description: The sequel to Hitman forces a retired assassin back into action by treason. Visit the dark recesses of the world corrupted by crime, greed, degradation, and dishonor. Your contracts will take you to exotic locations around the globe including Sicily, St. Petersburg, Japan, Malaysia, and India. A diverse arsenal of equipment, from armor-piercing rifles and explosives to chloroform and poison darts, are at your disposal. Stalk and eliminate your targets up close and personal, in either first- or third-person perspectives. You must decide whether to use stealth or aggression, but be careful--you'll have to deal with the consequences.
Hitman 2 features mission-based gameplay. On each level, the main character, known only as 47, is given a set of objectives to complete. Most levels require the assassination of one or more people. However, how missions are completed is up to the player, and there are almost always a variety of ways to complete missions. Instead of simply running and gunning through the mission, one can set traps, like poisoning a drink, to terminate the target in silence. Some missions have assassination possibilities unique to the level.
