Dishonored puts you in the shoes of a supernatural assassin trying to reclaim his honor and right the wrongs dealt to him. Supernatural in the sense that you have special powers that enable you to perform otherwise impossible or difficult tasks. The story-driven campaign lasts about 7-9 hours, separated by episodic levels in which there is a main villain that you go after. The campaign can be lengthened significantly if you choose to do side quests, find runes/bone charms to supplement your powers, try to find alternate pathways to your goal, engage in lethal or non-lethal methods. There are not enough runes to fully max out your abilities so you can only specialize in a few. In this way, the game encourages strategizing and multiple playthroughs.

A previous reviewer states that the game "punishes you for killin zombies". Some of your powers include ways to kill enemies. Go ahead and kill a few zombies and some guards that are alerted to your presence. But kill a large number of people and you won't be an assassin, you'll be a mass murderer. If you want to be a mass murderer, the game will get more difficult in terms of more enemies and rats to kill, but that's exactly what you deserve for being one. Hint: Mass murderers don't deserve a happy ending.

Graphics in this game are beautiful in HD. Settings include ruined Victorian neighborhoods, ornate royal palaces, brightly colored brothels, and you will see the developers took time to put detail in every level. Colors range from bright and vibrant, to dark greys and blues at night. Faces could use more work but often they are hard to see or covered by masks for you to notice. Sound is hard to describe but are appropriate.

Overall, a fine product from Arkane Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks. One final note: not one aspect of multiplayer available. But leave multiplayer to the multiplayer powerhouses like Halo or Call of Duty. This game is solely for the single player, but what an experience it is. If you are the slightest bit interested, try out a demo or a Let's Play video.

Do not fear the lack of multiplayer experience, this game is a piece of art.
the story is strong and engaging it feel real and probable althought it is a fiction world based on real world event.
The map are complex you feel like you are there and you need to take real decision fast
the gameplay mechanic is fun refreshing and inovative
easy to play/learn and harder to master.
they added an expension pack for only 400point (xbox live) about 7-8$ and it's definitly worth it.
i would replay this title and i rarely do that.

I feel like the only person who didn't like this game simply because of what it is.

Don't get me wrong, the game is well made with the exception the cinematic kill animations being way too fast. There's so many different ways to go about an objective that you could do something different every time, which is a strong point in its favour. But there's just not a lot to hook a player into continuing with the game other than the gameplay itself. The story is mind-numbingly slow and cliched, which quickly makes it boring, and the characters involved in it are mostly pointless and uninteresting. There's little to no introduction to the world and those who inhabit it before you're thrown into the focus of the game, which you NEED in a game based in a world that is not our own, and especially when the key focus is assassination. You need it in order to feel like you're accomplishing something. Instead, you're simply told there's a plague, you watch the empress die (and are subsequently framed), and then it's off to meet the ragtag group of rebels who will aid you in your vengeance (by doing nothing other than talking). Oh and there's also this dead guy who gives you incredibly useful magical abilities and a weird heart relic that lets you hear hints about the world around you, and leads you to collectibles.

Also, i've never been more annoyed at hearing my character's name. Every fifth word out of anybody's mouth is "Corvo", it's even the FIRST WORD SPOKEN IN THE GAME! Play from the introduction up until you rendezvous with the resistance, and count how many times they say that name. It's nuts.

Rather than being eased into the situation and allowing the player to develop a desire to continue, we're thrown into a foreign world and told to "get your revenge". It doesn't make me want to fight my way through a corrupt political system and return the rightful heir to the throne, I'm just killing random bad guys or sneaking around them. 2/5 stars.

One of the best games in quite some time. A must have if you enjoy stealth, but very enjoyable as an action game too.

Its a great game but don't expect a week long epic. Completed the game with almost all the collectibles and side missions in a little less than 8 hours. The only replayability really is to get the 2 different endings. This game should have had so much more in it given the nice array of skills and abilities you get but it seems a little rushed or almost like a test bed for first person stealth games from Bethesda and Arkane. Controls take a little getting used too as well. Overall its a great game for a few hours of time.

My friend said the game was daunting but extremely enjoyable. He had put it on his Christmas list as the second
of 2 games he thought would be different and fast action. I guess the game provided both as he is still raving]\
about it.
