User Reviews

A great game, but I have a few personal dislikes.
7 July 2016 | by See all my reviews


Variety in methods of infiltration and assassination.

Nice controls and good gameplay.

Great story.

Fairly good graphics. Might seem cartoony, but they're fine.

Good missions.

Fun tools and weapons to work with.

Gruesome kills and gore.

The ways you can neutralize targets.

The fact you can choose to be non lethal or lethal.



Not enough non lethal tactics or weapons.

I don't like Corvo's in game design. He's too skinny. He looks better on the cover.

The fact that I generally don't get all of my powers upgraded by the end of a session; and I don't have enough runes or bone charms. Which is why I wish there was a new game plus or something for Dishonored 1.

You can't take down Tallboys non lethally. You have to evade them if you're playing a session non lethally.

Save slots. I'm more a fan of checkpoints.

Short Summary:

This is a wonderful game that has a lot of variety, tools, methods of assassination and infiltration and take downs. There's just so much to the game. Even though I have personal dislikes such as the save slots, limited non lethal tactics and weapons, difficulty to get your magic set fully finished and upgraded and inability to take down Tallboys non lethally. In all, this is a great Victorian era like distopian setting with a lot of variety, a great atmosphere and awesome ways of dealing with your enemies.
