"A Must Get"

Options — and lots of them.
Rather than force players to take a specific action as they try to assassinate various bad people, the large, detailed levels can be completed in a variety of ways that can take a few minutes or a few hours.
Do you inject a deadly toxin in his drink? Why not sneak up from behind and silently strangle him? If you're really feeling creative, why not set an explosive trap and make it look like the whole thing was an accident?
All of these are possible, though some methods are much harder to pull off than others.
The biggest challenge is reaching these elusive targets: They tend to be swarming with body guards who get awfully suspicious — and downright violent — when they see a bald guy in a black suit wandering their domain.
Agent 47 has plenty of foils, some of them quite clever. He has a seemingly endless supply of coins which can be tossed to cause a short distraction.
Better yet, find a guard in a quiet corner, take him out, then put on his uniform as a disguise. So long as nobody else notices the corpse you've left behind (you can stash bodies in various conveniently placed trunks and other containers), it's a surprisingly effective way to gain unfettered access.
Yet this single-player won't appeal to everyone.
Patience is truly a virtue here, with lots of trial and error involved in correctly performing each step of each mission.
Good Graphics, Fun Gameplay, No real complaints here.
