Not convinced you want to jump in? Kevin Tucker reviewed Hitman 2's base game at Shacknews and awarded it a 9 out of 10. Here's what he had to say about it:

"Through all of the complex machinations and staggering amount of opportunities within its levels, Hitman 2 manages to be a game with one surprisingly simple demand: think things through. As it is in life, perception and consideration go a very long way here, and players who are willing to put in the proper amount of time and effort will see just how perplexing, engaging, and rewarding stealth action games can be."

Time to get down and dirty in-game if you haven't yet! Looks like you'll have plenty to keep you busy this holiday season.
