From Developer Arkane Studios & Publisher Bethesda comes a new Action/Stealth game that defines the word "Amazing" called Dishonored. Set in the City of Dunwall, you play as Protaganist Corvo Attano, who was framed for the murder of the Empress he used to protect. Now as a gifted Assassin all he can think of is revenge, so he must use an Arsenal of supernatural powers & deadly weapons to sneak, shoot & stab your way through a dystopian city in order to despose a cruel Tyrant. The Story is Phenomenal, Gameplay & Combat is similar to Bioshock meets Deus-Ex but in a good sneak & kill kind of way. Voice Cast & Stylish Character Design help bring the characters to life. Art Design is insanely incredible, & Soundtrack is an epic masterpiece. Level Design is consistent enough to make such moments easy to avoid when you get the hang of it. With its lovely design of the city come to life, all of Dunwall has spacious enviroments riddled with pathways & secrets. Dishonored is somewhat of an open world & a challenging game. Even if your not interested in sneaking, you can always choose to kill your enemies up close & personal or go for that "No Killing" challenge in other words choose to walk the bloody path of brutal vengeance or take the non-lethal high road & rise above the violence that suffuced the city. Your actions have small, yet tangible consequences throughout your quest, & it's up to you to decide what kind of retribution you want. Gotta hand it to Arkane's Art Team led by director Sebastien Miston & Zenimax also visual design director Viktor Antonov to merge a stylized London-like city with Steampunk elements which affects everything from the ornate clothing styles, to the sharp lines of the machines to help distinguish the setting. Dishonored gets a 9 out of 10.

Rent and play!! but if you are looking for a shoot em up, don't be surprised when this isn't for you. The incredible thing about this game the ability to play anyway you want it to but there are consequences. hack and slash or a more stealthy assassin. The outcomes vary accordingly. It plays smoothly and the special powers are incredible. It's a bit dark and gave me a bio shock feel, although not as creepy. I highly suggest it, ESP. For those who like a strategic RPG. Happy gaming!
this game is most likely if not the game of the year, if you have played and of the fallout or skyrim then you will love this game. Bethesda Softworks has done it again the perfect game, whether you like running and gunning or playing it safe and go around quietly like a ninja this game does it perfect. yes there is magic but it corresponds with the game-play perfectly sometimes it is the only thing you use. if you loved fallout or skyrim this is the game for you.
