Leafed my way through my copy last night. Really sure that Hitman isn't a game for me now, plus good to get the lowdown on a few other games you lot have been mentioning that I don't really know what they're all about.

Good review, although I was gutted as your review states it was OUT NOW.

I got all excited then realised there's another month before release!! :twisted:

That's what I call "magazine time" where the month on the cover is two months after it comes out. Add to that, they come out every four weeks meaning thirteen issues a year instead of twelve and you have to wonder why they put a date on the cover at all.
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

If i'm not mistaken the same thing happened with Skyrim as they reviewed AGES before it came out.

How comes the reviewer with the most extravagant hair style got to play the game about a bald bloke? Someone's developed a sense of irony.
