Hitman 2? Keep or return?

Alright, video game wise, this is what I'll be opening tomorrow:

Xbox System

Jet Set Radio Future/ Sega GT 2002 (XBox)

Amped (Xbox)

Shenmue II (XBox)

Xbox Live Starter Kit (XBox)

Splinter Cell (XBox)

MechAssault (XBox)

Halo (XBox)

Hitman 2 (XBox)

Xbox S Controller

Devil May Cry (PS2)

Metroid Prime (GC)

Resident Evil Zero (GC)

WaveBird Controller (GC)

Metroid Fusion (GBA)

Super Monkey Ball Jr. (GBA)

My question is about Hitman 2. From what I understand, it's similar to Metal Gear/Splinter Cell, but probably comes in third when ranked. I'm wonder if I should return it for something else, probably something Xbox Live compatable since I'm getting the Xbox Live starter kit and will only have MechAssault to play on it.

What would you do? And what XBox Live compatable game would you possibly get instead?

Man you could probably trade all that loot for a new car...

Somebody must really like you, or a lot of people like you pretty well...

By the way I have no other useful input on your question

haven't played hitman 2 but if you are looking for a good live game go ghost recon. That game is great.

Hitman 2 is definitely a keeper. This game is similar to splinter cell but you will still love this game.

Geez. Are you sure you got enough games? You're getting more games in one day than the total games I own for my PS2.

Anyways, keep Hitman 2. I've never played Splinter Cell, but I'd rank it (bald) head and shoulders above Metal Gear.

I didn't mean to show off, it was more like this: “If you were getting all those games, would you still be interested in playing Hitman 2?”

It was a situation like this: I said, “All the other games are for sure, but you can surprise me with either Unreal Championship or Hitman 2; you choose.” Since I know which one was chosen, I was just wondering if they made the right decision. By all the praise, I guess they did. Thanks everyone!

Also: The Jet Set Radio Future/ Sega GT 2002 game was (obviously) free, as well as Amped (Walmart offered it with their XBox) and Shenmue II (Target promotion; free with the purchase of any other XBox game).

Halo was $30 at Best Buy and Devil May Cry was only $15.

It was about a month ago. Someone on another message board (animeondvd.com) told anyone who wanted a coupon for a free copy of Shenmue II to e-mail him. I did, got the coupon late in the afternoon, and had to run out that same day to get redeem it (it expired that day). Really good deal if you ask me.

I should have posted it on here. I’m sure a lot of people would have appreciated it. However, in the heat of the moment, I didn’t think about it. Sorry.

Here's the coupon I used:

back on topic.....

Hitman 2 is like Thief 2, put with a more current time setting.

It is similar to Splinter Cell in setup BUT Hitman 2 is much more open, and you have more selection/personal preference on how to go about completing the mission. Although Splinter Cell is not entirely linear, it is not as "open ended" as Hitman 2.

It is NOT like Bond, Time Splitters, Halo, or MOH. It is NOT like Ghost Recon.

I bought Hitman 2 off eBay, and IMO it is not my "type" or game. It is very slow moving (realistic) game that requires allot of puzzling solving, thinking. It does have cool, novel stuff, like choking someone with a wire, wearing other peoples slothes, chloroform, etc. But from what i played, it involves allot of stealth and patience.

I dont know how you are going to get any enjoyment out of those games, since you have so many!.... but i am SHOCKED not to see Ghost Recon on your list! IMO this is the BEST game i have ever played on the xBox. Very realisitic, lots of sniper action, and from what i hear, LIVE play is awesome.

One more vote to keep Hitman 2. It's one of my favorite games.

Keep it for a year and then sell it on Ebay for 100 bucks and play your other games.

Is it really going out of print or something?


So far I've only opened MechAssualt, Splinter Cell and Metroid Prime (as well as Amped (TOTAL CRAP), which I would have tried to return as a "gift" had it not said "Not for resale" on the cover) and the Jet Set Radio/Sega GT game; but those don't count as they're worthless).


What about Halo? I know it's a very popular game, but how does it compare to Metroid (as they're both first-person shooters). I watched a friend play it once, and it actually seemed kind of bland. I went ahead and got it since it was so cheap, but should I keep it? I really don't know when I'll get around to play it either way...

Just picked this up since it was on sale at Best Buy this week. Damn, this game rocks! Nothing more exhilarating than strangling someone with a fiber wire!

KEEP IT!! I personally like it MUCH more than Metal Gear Solid. Very cool missions with lots of cool features--not really that many "puzzle solving" aspects, IMO...

I suggest you give Amped more time (you may not like it, but it is definately not "total crap")

It is hard at first, until you learn the basics, and get some skill point upgrades.
