A huge fan of Agent 47, I found myself nodding in agreement after reading Scott's evaluation. The first time I laid hands on a Hitman game was a genuinely unforgettable experience. Contracts delivers more of the same, which is not a bad thing.
Game Description: Hitman: Contracts takes players back into the world of Agent 47, genetically engineered assassin. In this new game, we find him in a hotel room in Paris. Shot up and full of painkillers, he begins hallucinating. As his mind wanders, we'll travel to the missions that left him in this sorry state. Amazing locations, from a realistic slaughterhouse to incredible recreations of Holland, France, China, England & more Incredible all-new graphics and advanced AI pull you into the world of the assassin.

Nihilistic tone wasn't the only thing that really impressed me about Manhunt, though—there are about a bazillion technical elements that stand out as well. Everything from the art design, the casting of the inimitable Brian Cox as the voice of the game's antagonist, to the ingenious use of the USB headset to add to the immersiveness of the gameplay is top notch.

I have "fragged" millions, perhaps even billions of creatures, but never once did I ever suffocate anyone with a plastic bag. Not once did I castrate anyone with a sickle, or jab a glass shard multiple times into someone's face, or knock a man's head clean off with an aluminum baseball bat.

Game Description: You will command four unique soldiers, each with their own skills, strengths, and stories through their capture, escape, and vengeance in the heart of the evil Nazi empire. Use advanced espionage skills in stealth missions, a wide variety of weapons in combat sorties, and a huge array of authentic vehicles in your fight for freedom. Superstar Steve McQueen is digitally resurrected for the fistfights, shootouts, and vehicular mayhem of this WWII classic. You are the new mastermind in this saga of indomitable spirit and daring heroism, can you pull off The Great Escape?

Considering that the source material is a venerable classic of dramatic filmmaking, a game based on the 1963 masterpiece The Great Escape seems overdue. It possesses all of the drama, humanity, and suspense to make an engaging videogame (as long as a few liberties are taken with the plot, of course).

But in spite of all the nifty light effects and techno-doodads the game sports, the core experience is still the same rigid, unconvincing formula it was the last time around. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow's single player mode has some great moments, but for every great one, there are three or four that are pretty lame.
