Reviews for Dishonored™ Game of the Year Edition (NA)
Best game in a long timeCappinCanuck | Nov. 12, 2013 | See all CappinCanuck's reviews »
I don't like stealth games. I love this game anyway. It's got a unique and deep unique story. You play a wealthy aristocrat turned rogue in a meshing of a steampunk and 19th century industrial revolution setting. Each situation has different routes to take and options that affect the outcome of your game. The writing, voices, and story are amazing. You'll be sucked in without question. The graphics are great and the art style on the spot. This is a must-play game.
An excellent and intriguing stealth gamePatofilio | Oct. 25, 2013 | See all Patofilio's reviews »
Dishonored is a very well done game, basically you act out as an assassin (or not) in a quest to clean your name. Without getting too much into the story all you need to know is that it's a pretty good story, the characters you meet are interesting and the whole world around you is brimming with history and lore waiting to be discovered by those who like exploring.
One of the key features of this game is the ability to play it in two ways, the stealth way or the aggressive way, this choice not only affects the way you control your character but also changes the environment depending on what you had done in previous missions. The stealth mechanic is very well done and combat is not bad either. Think something like Bioshock.
Overall this game is must play for stealth fans and rig enthusiasts. While rather short Dishonored is a well worthy experience that definitely deserves a second play trough.
Very Good Stealth/Action GameBulletter | Oct. 13, 2013 | See all Bulletter's reviews »
This is one of those types of games that allows you to play the way you want to play. You can treat it like a stealth game and got all sneaky or you can whip out your trusty blade and pistol and do damage. I chose stealth for the added difficulty and found it to be very fun. It has a solid story with a couple of characters you may come to care about so that doesn't hurt either. Overall it's a solid game with a very good sense of style and art direction. I hope they make a sequel to this.
Truly worth to be called GOTYlok0812 | Oct. 11, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
This GOTY edition for Dishonored is an all in one package for the game. The original game have you play as a body guard that was framed for murder and now you must seek revenge and clear your name. In each mission of Dishonored you have a choice of how you want to play, rather a stealth or straight up killing approach as well as if you want to slaughter anything you see or sneak pass them. Your actions will have consequences to the stages later on in the game. Gameplay and mechanic of this game is truly superb and it totally feels like an assassin with the superpower that were givens.
In this package it also comes with all the DLCs that the game has released. The Void Walker Arsenal is just an optional gears DLC for preorder from different vendors in one package. Dunwal City Trial is a challenge DLC with 10 setting challenging the player to complete a certain task. These two DLCs are very mediocre and serve little. The only story content DLCs are the remaining two. Knife of Dunwall have you play as the main antagonist of the game and see his side of the story after the prologue of the game and ends with Brigmore Witches to conclude his story and his ending depends on your actions as well. Overall, a truly immersive title that is well deserved to be called GOTY.
True game of the year for metzarinakatarina | Oct. 11, 2013 | See all tzarinakatarina's reviews »
The Game of the Year edition of Dishonored is really the game of the year for me. The game itself is great, and with the expansions and DLCs it's even better. And by purchasing it as a combined Game of the Year pack, you pay much less than if you purchased all the titles separately. So what's not to like here? The game can be considered a great heir to the tradition of stealth games like Thief or Deus Ex, and it's set in an interesting world with elements of fantasy and steampunk. You get a lot of freedom, as there are multiple ways of dealing with situations in the game. Game of the year I tell you!
Very worth it, somewhat steep priceQwertyfour | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all Qwertyfour's reviews »
I bought all of mine separately, but this price is definitely worth it, more so when it goes on sale. If you buy separately, the base game goes for 30 dollars, each of the 2 campaign DLCs cost $10 each and the void walkers arsenal costs $4 and the city trials costs $5. Admittedly, the void walkers arsenal isn't too great, but everything else is well worth it. That's $55 worth of content for $40, and it'll likely scale with sales. This is very worth it and has tons of content. The main campaign alone has a lot of replayability (people tend to play the campaign alone 4 times) with which each runs will take as short as 10 hours, the longest run taking over 20 hours, depending on how much you want to be seen and how many people you want to kill. The story isn't thought to be too great, but I personally enjoy it. The protagonist, Corvo, has been betrayed and he seeks a path of redemption to save the queens daughter. It's much like Shawshank Redemption, but other people have found the story too shallow for their likings. Now, the DLC also really shines. You play as Daud for both DLCs, an evil assassin who undergoes a change in morality. He realizes that his life has been corrupt and the killing of the queen has been his last tipping point. Daud has different gear and faces a different path, opposite to Corvo. He's seeking to reform his crooked life and I actually found the plots of these DLCs to be very compelling. The DLCs are linear in story, though, so you'll have to play The Knife of Dunwall before Brigmore Witches. They too have greats amount of replayability. If you get bored of either DLC, you can try out the City Trials, which is a gameplay based type arcade mode with very fun missions like a shooting gallery where you shoot whale oil barrels in mid air, missions like the famous Lady Boyles Mansion which is roughly similar to the Mafia party game, burglary missions that nod its head to the Thief series, and many more missions. This game is significantly easier than the Thief series, though. You have supernatural abilities that'll teleport you and stop time, which really makes stealth incredibly easy on all difficulties. Nonetheless, the gameplay is incredibly fun and incredibly rewarding. If you ever wanted to get into this game, now is the time. Pick this game up now or wait for it to go on sale.
