"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.
Steampunk at its finest.asiersua | Sept. 23, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
This game is a masterpiece, a must have, something you'll enjoy from the very beginning until the end. The stealthy gameplay is simply perfect, you have different approach choices for every level, and depending on how you play through the whole thing you get a different ending. In my opinion, however, its strongest point is the environment. Each and every inch of the city of Dunwall is something you'll want to explore: it's both gorgeous and full of secrets. It's kind of dark, because that's the theme of the game, but that doesn't mean it's bad. As I said earlier, a must have.
A great, steampunk game.rjb789 | Sept. 22, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
The games mix of assassin stealth and brutal FPS combat is a great, innovative idea. I frequently found myself sneaking thorugh the city only to find an enemy hiding round the corner. So I choked him and hid his body (as to not alert the guards) this is a common event in Dishonored and it is very rewarding to be able to sneak through the levels. Or if you want, you can kill EVERYONE. Which is an equally fun option although slightly harder in my opinion. I was never bored when playing Dishonored. Go buy it!
Alright, good combat and stealthLil_DesiresU | Sept. 20, 2013 | See all Lil_DesiresU's reviews »
overall a good game, stealth is always best in games like these. choose a different path, different actions over multiple playthroughs. upgrade powers and skills. the kills are great, cut heads off, summon swarms. slow time, or stop it. etc. great game.
Arguably the best EVER.Huddy23 | Sept. 20, 2013 | See all Huddy23's reviews »
This is arguably the best game I have ever played. The core gameplay is incredible - smooth, lots of different ways of completing each level, and great mechanics. And the graphics are beautiful. They focus on artistic design, with a perfect balance of realism and art which is awesome, it's like a painting in motion. The story and characters are full of intrigue and it's expertly written, the story is a masterpiece. And the game world is the most interesting alongside Tamriel, and I love reading the lore of the game. Believe me, I'm not joking when I say this is the most immersive game since Morrowind. Please! Buy this game it is worth every penny, my only complaint is if you just whizz through it could only take like 6 to 8 hours but believe me if you take your time and explore it can be very lengthy. And my tip to enjoy the game at it's best - turn off all the interface for an incredibly immersive experience that is very rare in modern games. BUY DISHONORED

Not one moment of this game is boring. Absolutely love it when plot and gameplay are so intricately woven. With conspiracy at every turn you're thrown into the limelight of decisive action (or inaction), driven sometimes by raw emotion as you become so absorbed into the plight of a character known as Corvo and the result is a volatile and unpredictable setting as you are made to bear the consequences of your actions.
