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.

Framed for murder of the Empress, Corvo must escape from prison and use his unique abilities to clear his name and stop his enemies from taking control. PROS: + Great story + Multiple ways to play/finish (I cleared it without killing one person) + Graphics have a unique style + Music/sfx are well done + Cool abilities give you an advantage + Excellent voiceovers CONS: - I wish there were more options for gameplay? This is just great game development right here. You truly have multiple paths you can go down in which your choices effect more than you know. I went down the non-killing path, but you can go in swords-a-swinging if you want. It depends on your playstyle. I really have nothing bad to say about this game other than I wish I had even more paths to go down, but that's just me being greedy and not a reflection of the game. I can't wait for number 2!
Dishonored is probably one the most pleasant surprises in last few years in gaming world. Game that was greeted with certain amount skepticism proved to be full blooded AAA game. Player will be in boots of Corvo empress most trusted man, that was framed for her murder by traitors who plan to rule the Dunwall. After a period in a jail Corvo gets help and escapes and that is where main story starts. To be honest i was also sceptical about first person stealth action game, but using combination of weapons and special powers that Corvo will obtain and upgrade during missions, proved to be excellent and game very dynamic and addictive. Game design is unique - Dunwall is set in steam-punk world, with interesting architecture and "cartoonish" like characters. Graphics are very good, as well as game physics and mechanics. Game is a little to dark for my taste, but many will find it acceptable for this type of game. Gameplay is great, with couple of minor flaws and bugs, but it will probably be polished with next few updates. Contorls are nicely done, and combination of powers and weapons works perfectly, so that Corvo is responding to commands very fluidly. Sound effects and music could be a little better - diverse, but all in all they fit good to the whole atmosphere. Bethesda did excellent work with this game, and we can only hope that they will continue in this direction.
This game has plenty going for it. From graphics that enhance the landscape to gameplay that's filled with adrenaline rush combat, it's bound to be a great session of gaming. It provides an in-depth story to it as well as an amazing plot to your adventure. I would highly recommend this game to anybody who enjoys a 1600s story or playing as a good old assassin.
Imagine assassins creed with first person,magic and in a city plagued by a deadly disease and a tyrranical ruler.Thats pretty much dishonored.I like the game very much and think it is well made and deserves more appreciation than it gets.I got it for free from a friend and instantly fell in love with it (also might i add, it was the only game i had at the time) and i still play it from time to time when im bored.Overall for this price it is really good and with the dlcs its even better
Dishonored is one of those few games that try to do stealth and actually pull it off without too much bullshittery. The premise is pretty simple, find the empress' daughter either stealthly or by brute forcing it. And the thing is, there is almost always an alternative way of doing things, there are other paths to take, other strategies to apply. This makes the replayability of the game bigger and more appealing, UNLESS you upgrade to Blink 2. And here's my big gripe with the game, blink 2 makes the game too easy, which takes from the experience unless you handicap yourself on purpose. And my other gripe is the downfall in quality after a certain part of the game, but I won't say which for the sake of spoiler avoiding. Is it good? YES Should you buy it? YES
