I was really looking forward to Dishonored and was a bit disapointed. The game is similiar to BioShock in both style and game play. The concept is cool, but I just didn't get drawn into the story like I have in other games. The biggest issue I had with it is the 1st person perspective. I think 3rd person would have suited the game much better. I also wish it had been more in line with Assassins Creed or Zelda/Darksiders game play style. Both are very different, but I think both styles would have made the game better. The controls are decent, but the block function was a bit annoying at times. It was also hard to tell when you would be spotted or not by guards. There was no real indication and it seemed like certain times a guard would for sure see me and he didn't, but others where I thought I was totally covered and in the dark and I was spotted anyway. Don't get me started on the jump function. Until you get the double jump function you jump about as high as a 300lbs girl. It just feels stupid and lacks any real function at first.
If you enjoyed BioShock I would suggest renting it to see for yourself.
This game it a ton of fun and the game play if fun and fluent. The can fall short with its story it is boring and nothing exciting happens until the end yet that is still disappointing. This game is worth renting its just not the best game. Give it a try for fun stealth game with many ways to play.
