In a present when the only games we anticipate are sequels, Bethesda's new original idea, Dishonored, did well to generate hype, but was that hype well deserved? For the most part, yes, but the game did miss a couple of tiny notes that probably won't be noticed by anyone who doesn't really care. For starters, the game is fun. Genuinely fun. That's not a bad thing, right? Well, your character, Corvo, after being wrongly imprisoned for killing the empress he was meant to protect, is given his chance for revenge when an underground rebel unit helps him escape and a godly entity gives him supernatural powers. These powers are cool, like, really cool. You're gonna want to use them. That's where things get shotty. There are two different endings, the good one and the bad one. To get the good one, you have to be stealthy and kill few people. That kinda defeats the purpose of some of these powers. Also, it would've been nice to have A) more endings, B) a protagonist with a voice, since this game could've used it, C) a better reason to commit to revenge. The game hints that (SPOILERS, kinda) Corvo had a romantic affair with the empress, but doesn't quite confirm it. That could've been useful on a narrative end. Overall, the game does well, and for all its faults, it still is a game to play at least once, maybe twice if you want to see both endings(but be warned: no New Game Plus, which irritates me). They say that Dishonored is now a franchise, and I'm excited about what they learn to improve this already great experience.
I saw the previews of this game from the show "Face Off", and I thought it looked interesting. I didn't have any idea what the game was about, but after playing I am glad I did. It's like Asassins Creed meets BioShock, minus the underwater city.
You must use a combination of stealth, and supernatural powers to complete your missions. These missions consist of an open world feel, with plenty of room to roam. Whether it be on the ground or scaling roof tops, there are plenty of places to go.
Overall it has a good story line, and the game play is fun. The only downside is that the graphics would be about a 7. I would definetly reccommend this game.

Dishonored is an unique game. This game offers many different play methods to go about your missions, with a great amount of magic abilities and weapons. Graphics are outstanding, story interesting, and game-play is amazing; especially since you could play the levels in several different manners.
The only downside that made me very mad was that it felt so... short. I'm not sure how many hours it took me to beat it, but I'm sure it didn't take long, and it basically left me to want more! But, all in all, its a fantastic game. So, if you wondering if it's good, don't hesitate, just rent IT!!
