It's deceptively preachy. SPOILER - the endings are dependent upon how many you kill and they don't pay off that well either way. I didn't even kill that many, but still got the high chaos. I think I went a little too crazy in the first mission and there was no recovering from it. It should be more clear from the onset that stealth is preferred. I read someone say this was the best game this year. NO WAY. Transformers, Spiderman, and Mass Effect were all better in my opinion. This is a forgettable title as far as I am concerned.
I felt that this game had very little depth. If you are into very detailed and intricate role playing games, this is not for you. I had fun for a little while, but I just felt like there was not enough customization.

I really loved the open world levels though it seemed the levels became decidedly more liner as it progressed. The control was a bit awkward with magic and gun selection tied to the same keys. Also the swimming was bad as even in shallow water Corvo breaks into full breaststroke. Also drop kills from above were underutilized and disproportionately difficult to execute compared to the rest of the game. Overall quite entertaining if you are into stealth at all.
