a very complex game that had lasting appeal i liked it from beginning to end and i liked going through the story making choices of who to kill and who not to kill. the only concern with the story that i had was that if you kill to many people you get a dark [or evil as some would call it] ending but with a non lethal play through it is less dark. so you can choice what kind of assassin you will be.

great story good stealth component awesome powers and weapons. the story line is great you play as corvo attono a master assassin were the guard of the empress and her daughter emily assassins kill the empress and blame it on u and u have to get revenge and kill the ones responsible.
So i just got done playing Dishonored, It was an interesting game. I played it through twice because they have two different endings. the story was inventive, but ultimately disappointing. Your set in a steam punk, black plauge era, and are trying to avenge the Empresses death, and save her daughter. you have two paths to go down not kill a soul and end up with a pleasent ending or kill everyone and cause the plauge to spread.
the game play is nearly flawless, but after playing through it once the second time you know what upgrades you should go after and makes the game super easy no matter the level of difficulty you put it on. the puzzles they try and give you are super simple, so any time you have difficulty just look around for a book thats shines or a paper that shnes read it and you have your answer. the most difficult part is the "weepers" which for all intents and purposes are zombies by a different name. but you can get upgrades that will heal you and restore your magic if weepers attack you so some times when your health is low just get attacked and heal your self.
they put health and Magic Potions everywhere, the second time through the game i never ran out of either, and always had the max, i only used my sword the second time through and never my gun, cross bow, nor any other gadgets, i only used two powers most of the second time and that was stop time and Blink, the latter is a power where you can move great distances in a blink of an eye that means up things across great distances, and out of harms way in an instant.
The game though is really short, and for a game from the creators of Fallout 3, skyrim and the like i felt cheated. i was hoping for a long game where i would be free to roam the worlds, but there are litterally only 6 different locations really, and you replay 3 of those.
besides that the graphics where awesome, and the fact that if you shoot some poor gaurd in the head with your cross bow you have the chance of
