I truly had high hopes for this game. I did.
If you send it back after 3 or 4 days it might be worth getting. The graphics are poor at best even for the Xbox. The acting is terrible and the boat rides at the beginning are insanely boring. The combat is bloody and gory which is the only reason I gave this game a 3 not a 1. During the intro sequence I had to restart because I ran to far ahead of an NPC who said "Lets go see ______" . The cut scene started before she got there and a few minutes later I had to restart. What an awesome way to start out what I had hoped would be a great game. When I finally got through the scene of the character's dishonor I was less than impressed with the game and it's story that we have all heard a 1000 times. After playing for a couple hours I shut my Xbox off for the night wishing already I had gotten something else. I decided to give the game another chance hoping maybe it was just starting slow. I fire up the game, choose load, and there's nothing there. Really? I thought the game was auto saving. It sure seemed like it with all the stuttering it was causing during the game. So I go online only to find out the game is only uploading my stats to the leaderboard not saving my game. What? Really? Who cares about that? My game was repeatedly stuttering with terrible FPS so my stats could get uploaded to a leaderboard I never knew existed. What a joke. Bethesda and everyone involved in the making of this game should be ashamed that they didn't fix the issues it has or bother explaining what was really going on during the autosave.
Dishonored was a good game. It was one of my top ten favorite games. If you are into the bioshock games;this is the game for you. It had a good story line, good controls.You could either go sneaky or lethal. The missions are difficult at sometimes which i liked, and you'll probably have to look a playthrough a couple times trust me I had to
