I really don't understand where all the praise is coming from for this game. There's nothing original about it. It couldn't rip off Bioshock any more if it tried. And then, imagine being in Rapture and then told you're not "supposed" to kill anybody. If you go on a murderous rampage, the game is horribly depressing and all the characters hate you. Being stealthy is obviously a lot more fun, but while the game touts multiple ways of completing a task, there's really the 1 optimal way that is oftentimes hard to discover.
Yes, the game is also very short, the plot never really gets you interested and there are no surprises. It's worth a rent, but I wish it would have come out in the summer when the pickings were much more dry.
Bethesda had a good concept here, but it just didn't come off as original. Disappointing considering all the hype it got at E3.
so i played dishonored and i cant complain the gameplay is similar to very good games like skyrim and fallout which i loved about it. i liked how you could choose what to do like any open world game. the graphics werent too bad either but im not a gamer that focuses on graphics...overall good game i think

Loved this game, one of the hardest first playthroughs ever, due to not killing anyone and not being detected the entire game. The only bad thing was that there the text was to small. It is an RPG but I really lost a lot of that because I didn't bother reading books or notes because the text was too small to see. I love how there are always multiple ways to reach your destination, like on rooftops or through drainage pipes.
