Dishonored: In a class of its own,
This review is from: Dishonored (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
When was the last time you played a video game that just let you have fun the way you want to have fun? Dishonored bucks all the trends of an age of games that is dominated by linear shooters and online multiplayer as the only means of achieving any replay value.
This is a sandbox assassination game where you can kill everyone - or conversely no-one (There are always non-lethal ways to subdue your targets) - in virtually any way you see fit. Most players, like myself, will probably strive for a balance of the two game types, blending the games' sublime stealth system with a combat model that holds up equally as well. As such the game has extensive replay value - do you play like a ghost and never get detected? Or do you eliminate everyone you come into contact with? In Dishonored the choice is yours and you will want to play the game multiple times to see the consequences of varying course of actions. Couple this with a superlative art style and strong narrative well delivered by solid voice acting and you have what amounts to a refreshing change from other games.
This is a game that responds to how you want to play it and that is indeed a rare thing from games of today. Dishonored truly empowers the player and is all the richer for it. Buy this without hesitation now. You will not be disappointed.

Great review. Thanks Henners.
Just wondering, I recieved my copy this morning but yet to get an email for the pre-order content/extra (can't even remember what it was), but has anyone else got theirs or waiting for it before they play?

Craig - They usually get sent out by email within 48 hours. The bonuses are nice to have but aren't essential to your enjoyment of the game so I would just get stuck in and play!

Aaaah, ok. Thanks for that :-) Must admit I'm trying to be patient but have been so looking forward to this I can see it being a late night of sneaking around rooftops...Then I'll come back and play the game too! ;-)

@ C.Laver, by all accounts it's going to be well worth the wait. My tracking info said any time before 7pm, hopefully yours is the same kind of timeframe. You should be able to see the parcel's progress in your order details. I'm sure it will arrive today :-)

Wasn't that IGN's words?
