Game starts out good. I like the story and the mix of industrial revolution with magical abilities. Kind of reminds me of Final Fantasy. Gameplay was repetitive and was not too happy with the levels as opposed to free roam which is what Bethesda is known for. I would have to mock the game up as above average and no better than say previous Bethesda titles which also have repetitive gameplay. Not sure what all the hype was.
For people who like this kind of thing. I've never been big into Bethesda games, Fallout was cool, but I just don't have the attention span. Story felt like it was going to be cool, game play was decent, graphics were kind of disappointing but I'm sure it's because of all the content. Overall, I give it a 7, but that's only through the first hour of the game. Cheers.

It keeps you interested. I had fun going ahead and assassinating everyone in my path, but the ending made me feel bad. Anyways, it takes about 16-20 hours of dedicated playing to go through and get most of the stuff. Being very thorough might take longer of course. I enjoyed my time playing Dishonored and I would recommend at least trying it out.
