* ScheduleSlip: ''Hitman 5'' (What would become ''Absolution'') was first announced in 2007. Development apparently only got going in 2009, only to stall again (if not be canned completely and subsequently restarted; reports vary) because Eidos wanted more ''KaneAndLynch'' games.

** There's a rather somber easter egg in ''Absolution.'' If you go through the vents in the courthouse, you'll find [[KaneAndLynch Kane]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFwKRRbuDLs writing his last letter to his daughter before his scheduled execution]]. Hearing the tell regrets of all that he's done within his voice and his dream of having another chance to form some sort of connection with his daughter is heartbreaking to eavesdrop.

* PolishedPort: The HD remaster is rather well done. Notably, even the posters on the walls in ''Blood Money'' are redrawn, making them look better than on PC, where they remain rather pixelated.
** PortingDisaster: While not a "disaster", it still has some issues. The most notable change is that the Bartender Disguise filter easter egg in ''Contracts'' is removed, and the new widescreen sometimes shows outdoor effects indoors on the screen edges.

** ScrappyWeapon: The original 4 games suffer from this. The majority of the unlockable weapons are not very useful, as they are often deemed suspicious even in disguises that allow visible weapons. It isn't until ''VideoGame/Hitman2016'' that wearing any guard disguise allows visibly carrying any weapon(s) you can get your hands on.

** The second location of the 2016 game is considered the best map of the game as of writing, and some consider it to be among the best maps on the series, due to its massive size and many different ways to kill targets. The main criticism seems to be that a lot of the location is wasted as the targets are centered around one section of the map; A criticism that's been since addressed through elusive targets and seemingly the summer episode.

* NarmCharm: Some of the disguises are this (Especially in ''Blood Money''). You'd think dressing as a giant red chicken would be stupid, yet it feels completely natural on the level it appears in. Other Examples being a Birthday Clown, A Chipmunk, a Plague Doctor, and a "Vampire Magician"

** Creator/JesperKyd's score for each game (bar ''Absolution''). Offers a lot of variability - from atmospheric ambient tracks to cerebral symphonies. Many fans regard the soundtrack of the second game to be especially memorable.

** Despite being somewhat generic, some of the music on the 2016 qualify. The mission completed theme becomes especially awesome after completing the level ''Suit Only, Silent Assassin'' way.



* GrowingTheBeard: Many fans agree that ''Hitman'' has gotten progressively better with each installment, with ''Blood Money'' being considered the best game so far.

* WTHCastingAgency: Fans didn't take too well to TimothyOlyphant playing 47 in the film. Some even campaigned to have David Bateson play him. Further uproar was caused when PaulWalker was cast for the upcoming reboot, [[AuthorExistenceFailure but this was tragically averted.]]

*** Really just the entire franchise is this. You [[PlayerAndProtagonistIntegration the player]] are the world's most dangerous assassin. Remorseless, cold, calculating, dexterous, etc. You're given the tasks and tools and many methodical ways of killing people. How far you're willing to go is up to you. But, it might mostly lead to an understandable case of ButThouMust.

* CompleteMonster: [[ProfessionalKiller Edward]] [[PsychopathicManchild Wade]] is a former Columbian cartel member, long-time acquaintance of [[BigBad Blake Dexter]], and all around disgusting human being. Dexter hires [[PsychoForHire Wade]], along with Dexter's son Lenny, to track down and kidnap Victoria so that he can sell her for a ransom. Wade goes out of his way [[EvilisPetty to make the mission as horrifying for everyone as possible]], and constantly insults and degrades the mentally-challenged [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Lenny]] by calling him limp-dick Lenny. Wade learns of Victoria's whereabouts by getting Birdie to sell out Agent 47 and, upon finding out she is sick at an orphanage, gleefully decides to abduct her by force. He has his mercenaries invade the orphanage and kill every staff member and nun there, and [[BadBoss even threatens to kill his own men if they refuse]]. He goads Lenny into accidentally killing the head nun and then mocks him when he breaks down in terror. In their final confrontation, should Wade win, he tells a dying 47 that he will [[DepravedBisexual rape his corpse]]. Even in his dying breath, Wade mockingly asks 47 why he has an erection. In a series filled with {{Asshole Victim}}s, Wade stands out as the most evil and petty.
