Years on from the PC original, we rejoin the reformed agent 47 who's now a gardener in a quiet Italian monastery. However it isn't long before your search for the kidnapped Farther Vittorio leads to plenty of bloodshed.

One of the first locations you will visit is the local mafia's mansion. Your objectives are simple, he's over there go in and take him out. It's how you go about the mission that's interesting. You have a choice between going in all guns blazing or taking the more stealthy approach. You also have the option to play the game in third or first person viewpoints.
If you take the stealthy approach you can steal the clothes of your victims for a disguise, then hide the body. You must smuggle you weapons into buildings in various ways including a grocery bag. At this stage there are still a few glitches that need sorting out before the release date. The controls can be a bit fiddly and the camera angles need fine tuning.
 
A little way to go yet, but this title is promising to be an action-packed shooter.
