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.

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
A action-stealth game of epic proportions, Dishonored is a game about choice, stealth, and that little panic that happens whenever someone looks your way at the wrong time. In Dishonored you can make your way through the streets and sewers of the city of Dunwall as you sneak or slaughter your way through patroling foes and plagued citizens to accomplish your missions and explore a city on the verge of ruin. To help you on your way you have a number of otherworldly powers allowing you to teleport, manipulate time, summon rats, and other useful abilities. You also have an arsenal of equipment to assist in your endevors, state of the art weapons, high tech gadgets, and a telescopic mask that will allow you to choose weather to fight your way through your enemies, or take a more subtle appoach and mearly knock them out. Choice takes a major part of this game as you must not only choose your appoach through the missions and their multiple paths, but you must also choose how to deal with those who wronged you and caused your dishonor. All in all Dishonored is a great game that will captivate stealth fans as well as offer something even for those who prefer a more direct route, as you explore a wonderful world on the brink of collapse.
Dishonored, in my opinion, is one of the best games of the last console generation. A must have for anyone who even slightly likes the look of it. The game opens with you, Corvo, returning to your Empress after a time away searching for a cure to the plague that has swept over the city, to no such luck. Then just minutes after your arrival, the Empress is assassinated, her daughter Emily is kidnapped by her supernatural assailants, and you are framed for all of the crimes. After being imprisoned for months for the assassination, you escape and are set on a path to find Emily, take care of the men responsible for her kidnapping, and rid the people of their treacherous Lord Regent. It's a game where you decide the subgenre. You can play the entire game killing everyone in your path to reach your end goal, an unstoppable force wielding explosive pistol shots , incendiary bolts, the very plague infesting the kingdom, and a bloodied dagger in an already fallen crowd. Or if you wish you could be a whisper in the night, never being seen and never killing. Distracting with thrown bottles, putting guards to sleep with an alternate ammunition for your crossbow, possessing rats and navigating through the smallest of gaps and tunnels. The choice in playstyle is so varied and interweaving, and the progression of abilites reflects that. You collect Runes on your journey that unlock extra abilities for Corvo. These include the standard health increase and higher jumps, to possessing creatures, blowing enemies back with the force of the wind and seeing enemies through walls. Each one can be upgraded further with more Runes to give distance to your teleport, or even possess humans and completely stop time! The creativity that can be applied to every level in the game with the combination of skills available is nearly unfathomable. The choice to end a life or spare it is a dynamic that changes how difficult the game is too. The more you kill and the higher the chaos, more stronger enemies will appear in later levels and security can be increased. But if you decide to stick to the shadows and keep the chaos to a minimum, the security will stay fairly consistent but you'll still have to carry on without being seen. A feat of patience and difficulty in itself. You can kill your targets or find a way of taking them out in a none lethal way. Whether that's by quite literally branding them as a heretic, or sending them to their own disgusting mines. With questions of morality and the consequences of killing brought into play, it makes for an interesting narrative of a world brewing with turmoil but still has some hope of being saved. You can bring the empire to a Golden Age of discovery or have it crumble at the tip of your blade. The DLC offered adds so much more than the main game too. There's the trials where you can test out your abilities and see how you can use them to their full potential. The Knife of Dunwall has you play, not as Corvo, but as Daud. The man who killed the Empress just minutes into the game, as he ventures on a path he never thought he'd walk down. The Brigmore Witches has Duad return to destroy a coven of Witches, bringing new and more difficult enemies to fight, all with powers not dissimilar to his own. All in all I'd heavily recommend Dishonored to anyone who can buy it. It's incredible and be played over and over again
