No. Mirrors are difficult to program; this sort of thing would be tough in any engine. For one from, well, 10 years ago? Not going to happen I'm afraid...

Well, why are there fully armed and operational mirrors in Hitman Contracts then?
AHA! Busted!
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Hitman: Contracts isn't 10 years old, is it? Mirrors appear quite nicely in Max Payne 2 which is six years old I reckon. You'll notice that if games can avoid it they won't do it. Some games do it with only static objects, like reflecting the room but not the player. Every piece of geometry that has to appear in the mirror is a fairly big overhead and if it can be avoided it ought to be. Performance is fairly important (just look at the main criticisms levelled against Crysis).

I stand somewhat corrected! Having recently seen a video playthrough of StarFox 64 I can say that it appears to have some rather nice reflections on the water in the first level. Do you count that as a proper mirror?

Yeah, I do because otherwise I've lost the argument.
