Think twice.

holly4banger | April 28, 2014 | Review of Dishonored®: Void Walker's™ Arsenal

This is a dangerous add-on for a newbie to Dishonored, for an experienced player who's exhausted the game it adds so much more but for a newbie it makes the game far far easier and destroys some of the fun.

However if you have played it out, go for it, it will add another 30 hours to the re-playability. Which is a bargain!

So definately buy it, but buy it after you've finished the game. I say.

Amazing, just amazing!

holly4banger | April 28, 2014 | Review of Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall

I was never sold on the idea of DLC, it always felt like leftover ideas and hand-me-downs and cashing in. But this title showed me that I can be wrong this was obviously a case where the developers were utterly teeming with ideas and were on the peak of their skills and just kept on make more and more of the exceptional game.

Except, the story is much better! And the new way blink works is better, it's somehow better than my favourite game ever! How could this occur?!

So I'm sold on DLCs now, so long as they are done as well as lovingly as this!

Great conclusion!

holly4banger | April 28, 2014 | Review of Dishonored®: The Brigmore Witches™

The problem with Dishonored was that the better you get, the more powers you have the easier the game becomes, with the Witches they are so much more powerful the challenge of the game returns once again.

Then they give you even more powers and toys to defeat them.

They really could have released this and the knife as a separate sequel, the story was much better and Daud has more depth than Corvo, but so long as it's out there I'm happy.

Buy it now! But just make sure you get The Knife first!

Utterly superb.

As a long-time stealth player I thoroughly adored Dishonored. It takes the spirit and game-play of the original Thief games and makes it more edifying for modern audiences.

The main problem for players in the 2010s is attention spans and the blink magical power has sped the game up no end without drawing too much from the rest of the game.

This is just an example of how well thought through the game is and the atmosphere and aesthetic are equally well met. The game looks like a painting come to life, the people feel fairly real, although the story is rather typical. But considering that plot is merely the bones to hang the game-play onto and the game-play being exceptional I'll overlook that.

My only complaint is it's name, it was so generic I overlooked the game for months only to pick it up on the cheap. Now I've played the game every single way, easy to master and in every way from ghost to a walking murder machine.

Can I please rate this one over 100!

Extreme letdown...

holly4banger | April 17, 2014 | Review of THIEF

Having seen these strangely positive reviews I had to redress the balance.

This game isn't a Thief game, they have just taken the name and some elements of the premise and made an utterly linear, buggy insult to the legacy it's leeching from.

If you want a game with the feel of Thief The Dark Project and Metal Age, try Dishonoured. It is a vastly superior game with a real sense of freedom, a pretty aesthetic and gives you a sandbox and arsenal of toys to approach each mission.

This just isn't Thief.

I'm giving it a 10 purely for the FOV slider.
