Not much replay value, especially all these years later.
From fans of the franchise I have gathered that the fun in the Hitman games is the variety of ways you can infiltrate the target's safety and wipe them out. Well...not in Hitman 2. There's only a couple of levels where you get more than one option, and most of the time it's quicker and easier to just go in all guns blazing than waste precious hours with stealth.
I have no doubt that the Hitman games have become more immersive as the technology refined over the years, but Hitman 2 is an unspectacular reminder of that era between CD-ROM shooters of the late 90s and the current generation HD consoles. Fun to play through one, and then inevitably forgotten forever afterwards.
