Back Catalogue: Hitman: Codename 47

IVG: Hitman: Codename 47 marks the inception of the illustrious third person stealth shooter franchise. Agent 47, the protagonist is a professional assassin who works for the International Contract Agency (ICA) and is briefed about his missions by his ICA contact, Diana Burnwood. Even though Hitman: Codename 47 starts very vaguely and progresses with one assassination mission after another, everything starts to make sense in the later part of the game in what turns out to be the story of Agent 47’s birth and existence. Developed by Denmark based IO interactive and published by Eidos Interactive, Hitman: Codename 47 was released on Windows in 2000. (Hitman, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Hitman 2 was way better if not the best of the series but this one is pretty impressive considering the time it came out.

i want to replay the others and i did get them all except for contracts as part of the absolution steam pre order but HATE the fact the non of them support a controller i wish devs would just add the support on their older games

I started playing the series with this one so I remember how great this was back when it came out. Unfortunately the 2 best levels were remade on contracts (which made no sense, they should have remade the 2 worst levels,) so there's even less reason to for fans to want to play this one specifically.
The one thing this game still has is its the hardest of the series since they didn't have an "in mission" save feature till the 2nd game. One mistake could cost you an hour of progress.
