 on ©. 2021.

We love watching close-quarters combat, stealth combat, long range shooting, and you name it. Everyone at one point in their life despised somebody for at least 3 seconds, but to hire a professional hitman to handle your business, is another story.  

Today, we are going to take a look at the 5 best “Hitman” games and the games were carefully looked at. There will be no honorary mentions, meaning this is a strict list. If you feel differently about the list, share the love via Twitter.

For reminder’s sake, everyone has their own preference for the “Hitman” video game franchise. 

5. Hitman 2 (2018) 

The storyline of “Hitman 2” follows directly from the last game. It is a full edition of the game with much larger, detailed levels. There’s replay effects added with new objectives the last game lacked. “Hitman 2” is developed by IO Interactive and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. 

4. Hitman: Contracts (2004)

Although the storyline of “Hitman: Contracts” is similar to a bad script of “Hitman: Silent Assassin” and “Hitman: Codename 47,” the gameplay is full of murderous journeys.

The main character, Agent 47, travels from Hong Kong to England and Russia to Bulgaria. There is arguably an improved soundtrack and it is more convenient to control the main character with the mechanics.

3. Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (2002)

With “Silent Assassin” in the title of “Hitman 2,” you can obtain a “Silent Assassin” rating. Well, that includes in the original “Hitman” as well. Simply only kill targets, avoid being caught (meaning have no witnesses).

That also means to not get caught on camera, do not allow dead bodies to be found, and successfully prevent non-target kills. In this “Hitman” game, it is up to you to put a stop to the Russian crime boss. 

2. Hitman: Blood Money: Vegas (2006): 

In “Sin City,” Las Vegas, your goal is to eliminate three targets with your innate ability. Use your fiber wire to suffocate your enemies, stab them with a multitude of weapons, and shoot them like there is no tomorrow.

Nearly every guard in the game uses the Slp. 40 pistol and you can silently sneak up on victims like you are invisible to the naked eye. There is also the non-silenced version, but eliminating your enemies with the silencer may feel fulfilling. 

Enter the casino and feel unstoppable. The surveillance cameras will be around and nobody can do anything about your lethal skills. For the storyline, you may want to play the “Hitman” video game series in order, but if you just want to have fun, pick your choice. 

1. Hitman 3 (2021)

Recently, “Hitman 3” released for “Nintendo Switch,” “Stadia,” “PS4 (Playstation 4),” “PS5 (Playstation 5),” “Xbox One,” “Xbox Series X/S,” and “PC.”

The latest version of the “Hitman” series has new maps and the players can import their own maps, levels, and progress from “Hitman” (2016) and “Hitman” (2018). “Hitman 3 is the first title with access to VR compatibility for PS4. 

Play as Agent 47 using numerous, handheld weapons like “The Black Almond’s Dagger” (which works like other melee weapons), the “ICA19 Shortballer” (a type of pistol), the “Golden Dragon,” the “Kalmer 2 – Tranquilizer,” the “Sieker 1,” and more. “

Hitman 3″ laughably has the playable levels of the previous games, “Hitman” (2016) and “Hitman 2.”  Agent 47 has high-resolution texture on his business suit, which differs from the details in “Hitman 2.”

“Hitman 2” offers reflections in bodies of water, but in “Hitman 3,” reflections can be seen on the marbled floors of a lounge area in Paris, to the small neon lit staircase in Miami. The ambient lighting is strong while the explosions have a bloom effect.
