I've just beaten the Lee Hong assassination mission and I think this game is pretty good if you can adjust to how dated the gameplay is. There are no saves, the controls are a bit awkward even after changing the default keybinds, and the kill opportunities are a bit narrower than future games.
However, I really liked the atmosphere of the Hong Kong missions. This is a series of four missions that have you disrupting the Hong Kong triads so you can get an easier opportunity to kill Lee Hong. It's pretty cool because it feels like each mission is a setup for the final assassination, giving it a grander feel.
Since there's no rating system, I don't feel penalised for killing lots of non-targets, and there's also this nice fluidity with the way some of these missions play out. I disguised myself as a waiter and tried to serve poisoned soup to Lee Hong, but his bodyguard tasted it first and ended up biting it. Hong then retreated to his headquarters – which kind of reminds me of how targets get locked down in the new Hitman games – and the whole area became a lot more dangerous. I couldn't even enter the front door anymore and I had to take an underground entrance.
It takes a lot of tinkering to get working properly (took me about an hour just to get the damn game to run), but I think if you can adjust to how old Codename 47 feels, it's not bad at all!
What do you think of it?
