-Performance
At first when I tried this game, it was very close to SR2's performance, it was major lag, however; after a patch all that nonsense went away. The game runs very smooth and runs great on my Asus G60VX laptop as well.  It even has an SLI option which really isn't needed, but it is there anyway. The options are not as robust as one PC gamer would like, but they are straight to the point.
Also, a downside is the max resolution the game supports is 1600x1200 and there is literally no widescreen options. There is a simple fix for this, but I feel I shouldn't have to open the .ini file of a game to change the resolution to my liking.

-Gameplay
The gameplay is great, and it has a lot of replay value. There are several ways to go about assassinating someone, you don't have to stick to one set path. This makes the game much more enjoyable as you can go back and test yourself to just how sneaky you can be, or just go rambo and kill everyone guns'a'blazin'.

I prefer a stealth approach and the good thing about this game is it allows you to take off the auto-sneak feature. This comes in handy when you want to act out your gameplay, personally if I'm going to choke someone to death and make it dramatic, I don't want to be in a "shit taking" position while I do it.
The only downside to the game is that some maps are too small, I do realize this isn't a free roam, but the level where you have to take out the guy in protected services wasn't really even needed. It is one of the more fun ones, but it doesn't take long at all to complete it with a perfect rating.

The controls in this game were logical as well, you won't find your fingers dancing around the keyboard as you try to execute someone and there aren't any of those annoying "SPAM THIS BUTTON OR YOUR FAMILY WILL BE RAPED" action sequences.

-Storyline
The storyline to the game was not the best, but it was still great, as all of the Hitman games usually are. The missions were challenging and the NPCs, although not the brightest, were a great improvement on the previous games.  It kept me interested throughout each level and as always the various way to assassinate someone made it just that more entertaining. It would of gone over a lot better if the story changed according to your actions, but seeing as how not many games do that even by today's standards I can let it slide.

-Overall
The game is great and it will keep you hooked for hours, you will want to know what happens next, and as it unfolds you will know it was worth the time. I will definitely be buying Hitman 5 when it is released, regardless if it comes out on PC or not, this is a classic and deserves to be in everyone's library of games.


-Performance: 3/5
-Gameplay: 4/5
-Storyline: 4/5
-Overall: 4/5

Looks good Smiley 

But, I think you should put mention the fix for resolution, so that way if anyone decides to buy the game they don't have to go look.  (albeit you basically said what it was, which is go in the ini file)
