Hitman: Absolution review gets 9/10 in Official PlayStation Magazine, “a peak for the series”


Okay, so bit weird writing a story about your own review but here goes. The latest issue of Official PlayStation mag is heading out to subscribers and in it is the Hitman: Absolution review. My Hitman Absolution review. I really liked it. The game, not the review.

Hitman: Absolution PS3 review

There’s an online embargo so I can’t put the whole thing up obviously but here’s a quote that best gets across the game’s strengths.

“Here [Hitman has] finally been perfected in what is probably a peak for the series so far. It takes the ideas that made the original games so great and presents them in a modern context of checkpoints, hints and forgiveness but without sacrificing any of the challenge, excitement or shivery-skinned thrill of pulling off some impossibly and beautifully planned hit.”

Importantly, it’s a proper Hitman, that’s all you really need to know. It’s dark, funny, a bit wrong, and packed with a sadistic toy box full of ways to kill people.

Issue 77 will be in the shops on October 27th although if you subscribed you’d have it already. You can also head over to Apple Newsstand and pick up a digital copy or take advantage of 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions. You can also get Official PlayStation Magazine UK on Zinio.
