It's a perfect blend of stealth and action as well as a strong storyline. Graphics on this game are beyond great as well as the gameplay. Its a combination of Bioshock meets Assassin's Creed but in a first person aspect.
What holds the game back is the slight glitch in the stealth, when you're on the prowl and you're hidden around the corner it seems that the enemy has the ability to see through walls but once you upgrade that all washes away but it will become a pain in the start of the game.
You will get sucked into this game and is definately worth the time to play.

Dishonored, while a relatively short and multiplayer free game, still earns a solid 9 for the simple fact that the Single player story line missions leave the player awed by one of the most engaging video game experiences they can participate in.
Although right off the bat, the graphics are noticeably lacking when compared to other games Bethesda has created such as "Skyrim," "Dishonored" makes up for it ten-fold with stunning game-play and truly unparalleled freedom regarding how the player can go about completing missions in an intriguing world only Bethesda can create. The player not only has the ability to choose how to complete listed objectives, but can also choose which objectives to complete, creating a playing experience which drives the player with a sense of importance and authority with how the game itself turns out.
While it seems difficult to be convinced to buy the game, considering once beaten,the only things left to do are replay the missions. However, the story line and different options available for playing style could definitely keep the player entertained for one or two more runs through the game. "Dishonored" seems to be the perfect Gamefly game for that reason. While it would seem to be too short and limited for a permanent purchase, the freedom to rent at the gamer's leisure and desire could make "Dishonored" a fun game to complete again differently, for the fun of it, and the rewarding achievements/trophies.
As far as a single run through game goes, the player will certainly not be disappointed as Bethesda turns out another gem of a game in a fashion unlike any other.
