Hitman 3 review: A great farewell to a stealth legend

Agent 47 aims for a happy ending – and several skulls – in his best missions yet

IO continues its tug of war between Hitman: The Story and Hitman: The Assassin Simulation. For the most of Hitman 3 the latter wins out and delivers classic hit after classic hit. Wobbly conclusion aside, it’s a must for existing fans and a great introduction to gaming’s boldest, baldest stealth series.

  • Incredible art design instantly teleports you all over the globe
  • Some of the funniest assassination opportunities yet
  • Fewer objectives to distract you from sandbox fun
  • Loads of challenges and leaderboards to keep you playing
  • The final level is a bust compared to what came before
4 / 5
