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.
The best stealth game of the generation.PootisMcPoot | Aug. 2, 2014 | See all PootisMcPoot's reviews »
The immersive atmosphere of Half-Life and Bioshock mixed with the stealth of Thief and Deus Ex, set in a Whalepunk universe. The graphics, while simple, are beautifully done in painting-like tones, and the lighting engine is phenomenal. The soundtrack is both breathtaking and adrenaline-inducing. The storyline is quite solid and very dark, the world expansive and deep, and the game can clock you 23+ hours on higher difficulty if you explore a little. The controls are extremely responsive, and make the game feel fluid and natural to play. The voice acting is marvellous. Almost constantly you'll overhear guards or civilians having conversations, but it's almost always a unique, scripted dialogue made specially just for those two NPCs, that can last for upwards of two minutes in many cases. AND THE CHOICE - You can go through missions in countless ways, from combat to stealth. However, combat is difficult against more than one enemy, so the player is encouraged to take on one enemy at a time. Multiple passageways always exist to reach your goal, and your actions will always result in different outcomes. Simply a fantastic game, reminiscient of the Thief games of old.
Fun stealth game.Jericho417 | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all Jericho417's reviews »
Dishonored is a great stealth game. Unless you go berserk, you'll spend a great deal of time sneaking around and plotting various distractions. One wrong move and you might end up overwhelmed and frustrated. The aesthetic choices made for this game really work well. The art style is strange and enjoyable. The game-play was very well done. I never felt frustrated at being unable to control Corvo as I had wanted. My failings were entirely on me, usually messing up when using various powers. If I had to complain about anything, it might be the AI. The AI felt a bit too dumb, at times. Moments where an NPC should have been alerted, but wasn't. Beyond that, though, I very much enjoyed the experience.

Dishonored is first-person action game in a world where you begin as a bodyguard of the empress which is soon to change. She is killed by Daud leader of a group of assassins and then you are framed for that. Seeking your revenge you become assassin. Your name is Corvo.
The combat system allows you to choose the way you kill your opponents like to fight them head on, to stealth kill theme, drop kill and many others. You have health bar and you the way you heal in Dishonored is by using item named Sokolov's elixir. You have a lot of magics too you can teleport,possess living creatures, stop time, jump higher and a lot more and of course you can enchant theme to make theme much stronger. You also have charms which protect you little and give you buffs. You get mission after mission to eliminate your foes. The difficulty in the game increases the way you play the game. Go to a party and try not to spoil it. Also to collect all the achievements is really fun challenge, like the one that you need to finish the game without killing anybody or there is one alerting the guards. There also fun like these that you need to kill 6 people in a second or fight 5 in the same time and kill all of theme. The more people you kill the darker the ending become so you'll need to be little careful. If you can try the DLCs do it. There is one that you can test you assassin skills with trials. You need to rob a house with tons of guards without being noticed and get out from there to the beginning point of the level. There is that one that you'll need to kill some unaware people with drop assassination by performing some sort of combination like sprint jump or just sprint and drop and it isn't easy as it sounds. In two of the DLCs you play as Daud. In the first you see how you kill the empress and in the second you fight against Corvo and beat him. Also the mission is to kill the brigmore witch.
A great stealth gamegeist_der_sonne | July 29, 2014 | See all geist_der_sonne's reviews »
Stealth games have a new king! While Dishonored gives you the ability to choose your approach (stealth or shooter) it is moving in the shadows that will give you the most satisfaction. You'll play as Corvo (italian word for "crow"), an assassin with amazing magical powers that give him the ability to jump very quickly between two spots, slow or stop time, control animals and people, see through walls and objects etc... The missions are set in large levels where the player is free to explore and look for loot, runes (useful to level up powers) and amulets (which give little bonuses). It's always possible to kill the target of the mission or to choose a non-lethal way. This will lead to different ending of the story, based on the level of "chaos" generated during the game. Overall this is a very pleasant experience and you should really check this game out if you like stealth game!
Stealthy Gameplay is back!fuzeblu | July 29, 2014 | See all fuzeblu's reviews »
And with a vengeance! Dishonored does a fantastic job at allowing the player to be a murderous, rampaging sociopath, a silent, invisible tactician or something in-between. The player is given a range of abilities and skills that benefit certain play-styles, and per rpg standard you can increase your prowess in each one. One thing the games does well is that your choices matter. NPCs and inevitably the ending will be catered to how you act and fulfill your missions. I do have to point out that the story feels short and could have been longer, but it is not too much of a hindrance. Overall, Dishonored brings some things lost to the genre back, and I highly suggest playing it.
