X360A Review: Hitman HD Trilogy
Written Monday, February 04, 2013 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Since Square Enix snapped up Eidos and all of its exceedingly juicy brands, they've been keen to get a return on their investments. It took years for IO Interactive's current generation Hitman, Absolution, to come out on consoles, and hot on the heels of that is something hardcore fans have been praying for every since HD remakes became a thing.
That's right, an HD remake of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Contracts. Throw in Blood Money and the Sniper Challenge mini-game of sorts, and what we have is a collection that Hitman fans are itching for, cleverly named, Hitman HD Trilogy.
How have they aged? What has IO Interactive done to the original titles when remaking them? Is Agent 47's best years ahead of him? Or has he been on a downward spiral? Are there any yellow rubber ducks? Those are the kind of important issues we tackle... well, we technically don't answer the last question in the review so we'll answer it here: yes. Yes, they do. The main question is though: is it any good?
