In the tradition of stealth- and strategy-dependant first-person shooters like the Thief games and Deus Ex comes Hitman: Codename 47. The game features custom first and third-person views on the action, making it easier for the player to see and account for everything in the character's way as he attempts to complete his mission. Players take the role of an expert assassin who carries the burden of a complicated and disturbing past. In a story intended for mature audiences, the protagonist considers the dilemmas inherent to his profession as he makes his way through the dark story and comes to understand more about himself.
Although there is a time and a place to fire the shot and take out the target, much of the gameplay is devoted to surveillance, problem solving, and careful planning for multiple contingencies. The enhanced AI demonstrated by intended victims and other non-player characters is meant to keep the Hitman on his toes and always thinking a few steps ahead. As missions are accomplished successfully, a larger arsenal of black-market weapons and equipment becomes available to the player. This advanced equipment must be used thoughtfully as well, however, if it is going to be worth the time and expense. Luckily, Hitman features comprehensive training sessions to help prepare the character for his gruesome missions. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
