Not merely Thief for a new generation - it blazes its own trailseanparkerfilms | July 23, 2013 | Review of Dishonored
A refreshingly original and nimble sneak-em-up, playing like a wonderful mix of Thief, Bioshock and Mirror's Edge. I can't praise the feeling of movement enough, and supernatural abilities like Blink (an instant, short-range teleport) are true game changers without feeling too overpowered. For me, this was the surprise hit of 2012, possibly the year's best AAA release.
The level design is outstanding, letting you go from an all-out chaotic chase with guards in the streets to a tense game of cat and mouse inside the upper floors of dilapidated apartments in moments. It's also chock full of the "little touches" that elevate something to truly special status.
Absolutely worth the play!
