Our top pick of the week?

HITMAN 2
13/11/18

With it’s relaunch back in 2016 HITMAN reinvented itself with it’s more open world and inventive gameplay. Unfortunately it’s only shortcoming was the fact that there was concern about it’s success and as a result was released episodically, a decision that is proving fatal to some companies.

HITMAN 2 is remedying that by releasing this experience all in one go. If you were sitting on the fence before, now is the time to pick up the latest version of what was surprisingly one of the best titles out of 2016.
