"It's a rare delight to play a game with such consistency of vision, its art design, level architecture, rulesets, storylines and writing all working in lockstep." - edge-online.com
"It's a rare game that feels so compulsively replayable, but Dishonored is such a game. The compelling abilities, the bold artistic design, the colorful characters, and above all, the freedom of choice--these are the things that mark Dishonored as one of the truly remarkable games of this year." - Gamespot.com
Revenge Solves Everything™
Dishonored is an immersive first-person action game that casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. Creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. Regardless of your actions, the outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange technology and otherworldly mysticism coexist in the shadows. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.
Improvise and Innovate
Approach each assassination with your own style of play. Use shadow and sound to your advantage to make your way silently through levels unseen by foes, or attack enemies head-on as they respond to your aggressiveness. The flexible combat system allows you to creatively combine your abilities, supernatural powers and gadgets as you make your way through the levels and dispatch your targets. Improvise and innovate to define your play style.
Action with Meaning
The world of Dishonored reacts to how you play. Move like a ghost and resist corruption, or show no mercy and leave a path of destruction in your wake. Decide your approach for each mission, and the outcomes will change as a result.
Teleport for stealth approaches, possess any living creature, or stop time itself to orchestrate unearthly executions! Combining your suite of supernatural abilities and weapons opens up even more ways to overcome obstacles and eliminate targets. The game’s upgrade system allows for the mastery of deadly new abilities and devious gadgets.
A City Unlike Any Other
Enter an original world envisioned by Half-Life 2 art director Viktor Antonov. Arkane and Bethesda bring you a world where industry and mysticism collide, creating an atmosphere thick with intrigue. The world is yours to discover.

Dishonored is a steampunk style game where you can choose your play style - you can play it as a stealth game or you can kill everyone you meet, and you can complete the game without killing a single person. The graphics are kind of good for 2012 and the story is good too. If you kill too many people, more rats will appear and the plague will spread (I won't tell anything else because I don't want to spoil it). If you kill 10-20 people, nothing special will happen. If you kill 0-10 people, golden age will come to Dunwall. For example you can choose whether to poison the high overseer, which takes 2 minutes to do, or to place the heretic's brand on his face, which is very hard to do and takes a long time.
An Extraordinary Game.tonydareizer | Oct. 3, 2015 | See all tonydareizer's reviews »
This is a great game indeed, but is the option limited to "Great"? Knowing the vastly developed gameplay mechanic, which includes the option to go Stealth of Rogue, i won't pronounce myself yet. The game has, in terms of combat mechanics, two main options: Either go melee or go ranged. It has "magic", as well as swords, knives and crossbows. The player-character has "Freedom of Movement", meaning you can either parkour atop the roofs of the city, or navigate through the shadows. Its storyline isn't bad either. It isn't bad at all. In fact, it has a very-well developed storyline, which is also intriguing. After reviewing the essential aspects of the game, i repronounce my opinion: It's an extraordinary game, with great, immersive graphics and a well-planned story. I strongly recommend it to any gamer.

Get the pun? Anyway, I thought that this was a fantastic game in a beautiful setting. The story of this game is nothing all that original, but the way in which it is delivered through the characters and environment is near flawless. The gameplay is also something that really delivers on what the developers promised. They said you could go about an objective 5 ways and they meant it, rather than 2 ways like some developers have promised. I really felt that the game developers wanted to make sure each persons playstyle was flushed out. You want to be sneaky in the shadows? No problem. You want to manipulate people and object? No problem. Want to be an aggressor? Can do. A mix of everything and anything? Done. Its a fantastic game and I look forward to its sequel.
Solid stealth game with great environmental storytellingTownClowne | Sept. 17, 2015 | See all TownClowne's reviews »
This game has a serious AAA pedigree, and it shows. From the creators of Kicksalot McDeathboot in the Land of Conveniently Placed Spike Racks comes a dark, gritty game about a man who can't kick, but can teleport and shank the crap out of people. In all seriousness, this is a very good stealth game that feels like Thief meets Bioshock and Half-Life 2. It's polished, but not so polished that it loses its individuality, or its trust in the player. This is a AAA game that finally doesn't treat you like a moron! I pre-ordered it a while back, but it's influenced all stealth-based design I've done since, and it's a game I will always look back on fondly. I can't wait for the sequel.

I've played a lot of stealth games and Dishonored is my favorite of all time. The choice of slipping in and out undetected, strategically taking out key guards or slaughtering everyone in the level is only made better by unique magical powers and oh so satisfying kill animations. The first power you unlock is blink, basically a short ranged teleport, and hidden within the levels are runes. You collect these runes to unlock new powers like slowing time, summoning swarms of rats to devour your enemies, and mind control among others. You can use runes to upgrade your powers like getting more range of blink and turning slow time into stop time. You can combo your powers with your arsenal of deadly weapons. Teleport to someone and slit their throat, stop time and place mines on the bolts shot from your crossbow that are also frozen in time so they hit someone from a distance and shred all his nearby friends (Why havent you bought this game yet?). Thats only some of the powers and some of the weapon, I havent even covered the great level design or stealth mechanics. The only thing that this game truly did wrong is its not long enough.
