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 definitely one of my favorite games. There are many different ways to approach each level, and I replayed the game three times and had a different experience each time. While the it's shorter than many triple A games today it has an enjoyable well crafted world and story, and lots of replay ability. Great stealth mechanics and fun action. Buy it.
My choices dishonoured it.Argentum | Dec. 1, 2013 | See all Argentum's reviews »
I played this in a single sitting, burning through the campaign in around 10hrs, and I regret it.
This game has depth and options and hell even some actual difficulty if you let it. Instead I would blink into every room sneaking straight past almost all opposition and getting the target as fast as I could. I ended with what turned out to be the "average" ending rather than the "good" or the "bad" because I killed a few and let a few go. Very average play through.
Now the reason this happened is the game is very subtle it doesn't tell you about a lot of the side quests you can do and when they pop up they are 100% optional with only a slight intensive to go and get them done. I feel that your character was a little overpowered, I rarely failed with my method and when I did it was generally because I teleported straight into a energy wall - so it seemed to be more puzzle-y than action and stealth as I built it up in my head to be.
But it was hinting at the full depth of the game, you can really make all the choices you want to, if I had tried a little harder I could have taken an action approach or if I had bothered I could have fully snuck my way through the levels not killing a soul. If I had the time I would go back and do it again making better choices, because at its core this game is fantastic, the art style is brilliant and the game mechanics are solid. Plus the blink power is brilliant fun, it adds a powerful free roam aspect to the game meaning I can try my damnedest to get around as best I can.
Overall I would have liked the game to push me a little more, the easy option was obvious a tempting but I would still recommend this to anyone that asks.

Dishonored is a production that really stuck in my memory. We are pleased man returns to the title many times. The first thing that is extremely well done is the vision of the city. Every detail has a purpose, and it looks simply ludicrous . Really a lot of times it was so , that instead of going forward admired the city , looking through every nook and read every piece of paper that told a story about him. The magic of this place engulfed me completely. Another thing is the combat system . There are so dynamic and nuanced that passing game , killing another enemy is awfully good ! Just good ! A very long time since I played during combat as well as just at this game. A substantial number of gadgets only increases the possibilities . You can use a gun , crossbow , grenades , proximity traps . It really is a lot to choose from . RPG fans will also find something for themselves. We have the opportunity to develop the skills of our hero , where we choose from among a few special abilities like Blink . This gives us the ability to " teleport " in the selection of our place . Other options are not worse ! Seeing through walls , summon rats that will attack the enemy. But I'm talking about how to eliminate the enemy. This can be done aloud, making maps which are veritable battlefield, but also can play the silent killer. Sneak eliminating enemies and quiet this is also something beautiful. But we do not need to kill! Also, we can sneak and go through the game without killing anyone! Paths to achieve the goal is really a lot. A depends only on us, which we choose and how to solve the problem. It is a game definitely worth a visit. The only drawback is the difficulty that even the best does not cause too much trouble.
Impeccably Designed Stealth ActionBokoblin23 | Nov. 21, 2013 | See all Bokoblin23's reviews »
This game is absolutely not suitable for children, but for mature adults who want a strong stealth action game with an absorbing world, this is for you:
Dishonored is a masterpiece of design in both game play and aesthetics.
Set in the pseudo-steam punk, fictional city of Dunwall you play as Corvo, a disgraced royal guard set out to clear his name from a conspiracy against the royal line.
The core story may be par for the course in premise, but it absolutely facilitates the best game play for this kind of title. You are never bogged down by too much exposition, instead the game leaves a lot up to the player in how much you absorb..
And this is absolutely a world you want to take in. The complete originality of the setting is one of Dishonored's best assets. Beautiful rich color tones and exaggerated character designs are gorgeously realised making even the foulest of levels in this grim scenario inspire awe.
Stealth gameplay is complemented well, in that eavesdropping, stealing and other sneaky actions allow the player to both experience chunks of story, while keeping on their toes on-mission.
Sneak around large open levels and uncover secrets about the city as you kill or spare your enemies with a large variety of gameplay features. Corvo, the player, is able to harness magic abilities early in the game, which can be upgraded as the game progresses. This opens up the large levels even more with teleportation, posession and kinetic powers both reward the player for upgrading and intensify the experience.
The best thing about this game, is that skilled players can leave their enemies alive and despite being hired as an assassin for most of the game, you can avoid killing virtually everyone, which is a nice touch - especially given how grim and graphic the games violence is.
There are different endings as a result of the morality of your actions, so the more difficult pacifist playstyle is also rewarded in this respect.
The game is split up into levels, with the player returning to a hub area between them. This allows for more story heavy moments, but, again, I rarely felt overwhelmed by exposition - either that, or I enjoyed the setting enough to absorb it easily.

I've never really been into stealth games. In fact when I bought this game, I thought the stealth aspect might be a bit boring as I am quite impatient. By the end of the first mission, I was completely sold and it has become one of my favorite games of all time. First things first, this game is relatively bug free; I have yet to encounter a bug or a glitch and I have played for well over 25 hours. The steampunk style is absolutely gorgeous and the gameplay is fantastic. The variety of ways to stealth kill/rage through are incredibly satisfying and the blink power by itself sold me on the magic powers (one of the best parts of the game). That being said, I would have liked to have seen more weapon/magic options for those doing a completely stealthy ghost run. The pistol/grenade/mines are too loud while most of the magic powers are fairly useless on a ghost/clean hands run. The game does, because of the different achievements (such as ghost and clean hands), have great replay value so it definitely warrants its price. I've played through twice and I plan to play through a couple more times just to see the other endings/achievement hunt. The variety of ways to go through a level is really what makes this game great. If you play this game, make sure to explore the city and take your time teasing out the best way for you to move forward, whatever type of run you are doing. Overall, really great game!
