"It's a rare game that feels so compulsively replayable, but Dishonored is such a game.

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 First Person Assassin's Creed Game We've Always Looked ForPablar_Graymane | Aug. 31, 2015 | See all Pablar_Graymane's reviews »
Dishonored is, in few words, one of the most engaging and immersive games I've ever played. The story is very well thought and how the world around you react to your decisions (which are many) makes you feel like you are actually changing people's lives and hitting the oppressive government of Dunwall right where it hurts. You can control Corvo and approach the situations the game presents you in any way possible, infiltrating a house through the stealthiest approach possible by the sewers or breaking the front door with your supernatural powers and just go beheading everyone that stands in your way. Dishonored offers a wide variety of gadgets and abilities that give the game it's versatility and variety of gameplay. Overall, I recommend it to any fan of stealth or combat games, or people who like to play games with awesome stories.
A near-perfect example of video gaming.DrippingSins | Aug. 28, 2015 | See all DrippingSins's reviews »
If you asked me to list my favorite game, Dishonored most likely wouldn't come to mind. However, since first purchasing this game, I have never uninstalled it from my PC. It is my go to whenever I am bored. And every 6 months or so I feel the urge to play through it all over again. The story is so intriguing. The characters both good and bad are top shelf. The art style is beautiful. But all of that pales in comparison to the immersion you will feel as your hunt down Corvo's enemies. You are free to choose how your Corvo navigates the streets and rooftops of Dunwall city. The missions give you the freedom to decide how you achieve your objective. You are even able to decide if the objective you are given is the right thing to do or not. Does your Corvo stick to the shadows; avoiding confrontation at all costs? Or perhaps he destroys anything that gets in his way. Does he kill only when necessary or does he enjoy taking lives? Is he an angel of death or mercy? The choice is yours.

Looking at the striking visual style (from Viktor Antonov who also did Half Life 2) should give you a good idea of how much you'll enjoy this instant classic, which plays as good as it looks. The story is fairly simple and never keeps you away from the game for too long, but thanks to the visual design it is always present. Each level presents multiple routes to success and provides considerable opportunity for inventiveness. You won't be stuck walking through a script here. Environments are fairly large and complex, and being able to navigate them is probably the most important skill in the game. The gameplay is stealth combat based, with satisfying melee and some neat magic tricks that greatly increase your options. If you like a bit of player agency in your game, this is for you.
More than a good gameProdakn | June 16, 2015 | See all Prodakn's reviews »
Dishonored was released on 9 October 2012 and I remember how much I waited for it, it had a great trailer which gives me chills to this day, but enough about the trailer, and let's talk about the game. The game is set in a steam-punk-plague-filled fictional city of Dunwall, and you play as an assassin named Corvo that gets wrongly accused and has to prove his innocence. Throughout the game you obtain upgradable powers like: teleportation, slowing down time, "mind" control etc, which make the stealth gameplay realy awesome. The level design is one of the best I've ever seen, I'd say it is comparable to Bioshock. The graphics still look good due to a great art style. The sound is great, but not memorable. The story is also pretty good and puts you in unnespected situations, it has twists and turns and it is overall very entertaining, In conclusion, I'd recommend this game to every gamer, is a modern day classic.

I've played a lot of stealth games, and I have to say that this one is my favorite. Dishonored is a first person stealth game as you probably already know. It has beatiful environment, dark feel of the game, great combat and stealth mechanics. Yeah, although it's a stealth game, it has great combat mechanics. So, if you prefer combat, you can play that way, but it will lead to a darker outcome of the game since it has multiple endings. The game encourages you to play stealthily and to take down your targets non-lethaly. As I mentioned before, it has great stealth mechanics and abilites, some of which are: Blink - Short distance teleportation with low mana cost (Mana can regenerate over time for the same amount you used in order to blink). Dark Vision - Allows you to see living, dead and unconscious persons or animals through walls. It also gives you vision of the sound you're making. Devouring Swarm - Summons a swarm of rats that attack others. Rats also eat corpses. Possession - Allows you to possess animals or people. Bend Time - Let's you slow or freeze time depending on the ability level. Windblast - Allows you to blast back group of people or break doors. Those are only active abilities, but you also can get passive abilities. All of the abilities in the game can be upgraded to level 2. This is a great game and I recommend it to everyone.
