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 must have. It is weird the fact that when I was playing it I didn't like it as much as I like it now. Dishonored is like the wine that becomes better as time goes by. The setting is unbeatable, and even thought it doesn't have the best graphics of its generation you will love each and every visual aspect of the game (specially if you are into steampunk). The design is just perfect and gameplay is also wonderful, featuring something like an Assassin's Creed in a first person shooter. Actually, the way you play Dishonored is your choice, since you can go kill every single guard (with those stunning executions) with your weapons and powers or leaving them all alive sneaking in to complete all your objectives. I won't say that choices matter in Dishonored but you can change the ending considering your acts during the game. I loved the structure. Dishonored got different "open levels" instead of a whole open world experience with lots of things to do. It's kind of what you can find in some games like Deus Ex, with different objectives and different ways to achieve them. You know what I mean, getting inside a building through an open window, going down through the sewers or just walking towards the main door and taking down all the guards. Dishonored is worth every penny.
In Dishonored, you play the role of the bodyguard of the Empress, who has been murdered. You have been framed and throughout the game, you are looking to find the suspect and your redemption. The story is well made, there are a few characters who are nicer to you than others. There is Piero, the guy from who you buy upgrades, ammo for you pistol and others. There is Samuel, the guy who brings you to the mission, give you some clues and bring you back to home after. There are also some others that I will let you know. The gameplay reminds me Deus Ex Human Revolution. You can decide to not kill anyone, which is nearly unfeasible. You can take down each enemies either lethal, or non lethal. It's up to you. I personally prefer doing the whole game the more stealthy as I can, because using weapons really makes the game easier. You have several magic abilities, which are really useful. You have to use them in order to reach some areas. Sometimes, it is just easier to infiltrate if you have them, otherwise you have to take a secondary road in which there are several soldiers. It is set in a steampunk environment that I really like, I don't want to spoil too much here, so I will let you discover by yourself the enemies. The main downside that I have for this game is the ending. I think that there are two. The Low Chaos and the High Chaos. You get the first one when you did not kill too many men, and the other in the opposite case. For me, I got the Low Chaos. I expected an epic boss battle at the end...which never came. I also got a bug when I felt in the underground, so I had to reload my game. Also, the game does not save too often, so save manually. On that, all I can say is, buy this game right away! Apparently the DLC is nice too. But I did not try it.
Dishonored is a steampunk style game where you can choose your play style - you can play it as a stealth game or you can kill everyone you meet, and you can complete the game without killing a single person. The graphics are kind of good for 2012 and the story is good too. If you kill too many people, more rats will appear and the plague will spread (I won't tell anything else because I don't want to spoil it). If you kill 10-20 people, nothing special will happen. If you kill 0-10 people, golden age will come to Dunwall. For example you can choose whether to poison the high overseer, which takes 2 minutes to do, or to place the heretic's brand on his face, which is very hard to do and takes a long time.
This is a great game indeed, but is the option limited to "Great"? Knowing the vastly developed gameplay mechanic, which includes the option to go Stealth of Rogue, i won't pronounce myself yet. The game has, in terms of combat mechanics, two main options: Either go melee or go ranged. It has "magic", as well as swords, knives and crossbows. The player-character has "Freedom of Movement", meaning you can either parkour atop the roofs of the city, or navigate through the shadows. Its storyline isn't bad either. It isn't bad at all. In fact, it has a very-well developed storyline, which is also intriguing. After reviewing the essential aspects of the game, i repronounce my opinion: It's an extraordinary game, with great, immersive graphics and a well-planned story. I strongly recommend it to any gamer.
Get the pun? Anyway, I thought that this was a fantastic game in a beautiful setting. The story of this game is nothing all that original, but the way in which it is delivered through the characters and environment is near flawless. The gameplay is also something that really delivers on what the developers promised. They said you could go about an objective 5 ways and they meant it, rather than 2 ways like some developers have promised. I really felt that the game developers wanted to make sure each persons playstyle was flushed out. You want to be sneaky in the shadows? No problem. You want to manipulate people and object? No problem. Want to be an aggressor? Can do. A mix of everything and anything? Done. Its a fantastic game and I look forward to its sequel.
