"One of Eidos' most enduring properties is Hitman. Starring the hairless Agent 47, the Hitman series of games made a name for themselves back in the PS2 days with their rather unique approach to stealth, mixed in with some rather brutal violence, implicit and explicit. And while the series has slipped in and out of limelight over the years, last fall's Hitman Absolution brought the games squarely back into public consciousness, earning itself quite a few accolades along the way. Now, to celebrate the storied history of Agent 47's earliest days, Square Enix brings us the Hitman HD Trilogy, which includes Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money. The first game is missing (it always is from Hitman collections); probably because it was PC exclusive while all subsequent games were on consoles as well. In any case, it was rather different from the rest of the series, and not even as good, so its exclusion does not matter all that much."
