Really Bad

Ah the inconsistency of Bethesda.....

I don't get it? I don't have a PS4 yet I know I know....but the graphics on this game just plain suck. It's like playing the original Morrowind all over again. The storyline isn't solid. The environment is only partially interactive....overall a total failure in my opinion. Who's writing such great reviews for games like this? Game informer gave it a 91 when it came out? Are you freaking serious? What a joke. How does Bethesda manage to make Wolfenstein the new one so B.A. and then have a game like Dishonored which flat out sucks? I'm just glad there's Gamefly so I didn't get stuck with this loser......super fail Bethesda. Not happy with this one at all. One more time....man those graphics sucked.

Dishonored was a lot of fun to play. In each mission you could choose the amount of Chaos and that determined the ending. The graphics were lacking somewhat but the game play was smooth and exciting. The in game leveling was also unique to how you play. If you liked BioShock you should try Dishonored.

Perfect

The only game I had no problem finishing

If steampunk-inspired, dark, plague-ridden landscape filled with danger, magic, bizarre machines, pseudo-Victorian finery and industrial decay is a backdrop to your dream vacation, and a handsome loner framed for the crime he did not commit on a road to revenge and redemption is your personal fantasy, then this game is for you.

Despite starting like a few other games (especially Bethesda's), the game moves and evolves quickly into a unique and beautiful gem. It's tumultuous, philosophical, darkly romantic, tragic and wise and at the same time extremely dynamic, agile, tough, violent and original.

Imagine if Gothic horror, classic RPG, Thief franchise, Assassin's Creed, and Elder Scrolls lore got together around a witch's cauldron and brewed something beautiful, terrible and awe-inspiring together.

The game is smooth and immersive, I had only one bizarre NPC identity-swapping bug that did not affect the game (although probably traumatized the NPC whose fate was in Corvo's hands). You will be freely exploring areas, traversing underground tunnels, discovering multiple ways to neutralize enemies, you will scale castle walls, swim, shape shift, steal, cast spells, snipe your enemies, save or condemn lives.

You will fall in love with the thinking character who is so human, who could feel love and regret, and is often presented with a choice of whether to reach his goal with pure violence or with intelligence and stealth, which are the most important requirements in the game.

The plot is fascinating, unique and will teach you new things as you move on with the story line, teach you how to avoid or destroy danger that lies ahead, and outcome of each step will depend on your choices.

The game is magnificent. Play it. It was excruciatingly sad to part with it when it was over.
