This review is from: Dishonored (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Dishonored starts in great fashion.You are Corvo Attano a legendary bodyguard to the Empress who is framed for her murder and forced to become an assassin to seek revenge on those who conspired against him.
You spend your new days around the city of dunwall,Which feels like a victorian london but in a present day format.
Dishonored would fall under the genre of "first person stealth action adveture game."If this piques your interest? then this game will already be recommending itself to you.
Very satisfying mechanics,One on one combat is it's only downfall but this isn't a serious problem because the whole point is to move around using the surroundings accessible to you.So if stealth isn't your cup of tea then be prepared that your expirence will be alot more hard work than mosts.Having said that you can play the game guns blazing ..The game encourages you to play in both styles.The game has got a good challenge to it.Its not the longest game on the market but if you savour it..you will surely get a decent lenthy expirence.
I found that after completing a mission i would automaticaly want to replay it having felt i did it sloppy.
It shows you collectibles what you may or may not have missed.I suggest getting through the tutorial mission undetected and without slaying the enemy..If you stand any chance of aceing this game.
Overall really good,Alot of attention to detail.The ncps look good and so do the backgrounds.The game has been compared to a oil, water based ,colour painting ..Thingy?!!.Hell do i know about art..As the saying goes i dont know a thing about art ..But i know what i like...And i like this!!
Great voice acting.Fits perfect into whats going on around you and the story in hand.
Great sound effects too!!
My personal thoughts are this game feels like a first person Tenchu Game.A old ps one game...with elements of Assassins creed and anyone who has played skyrim will feel the abilitys you use in your inventory will resemble this game..But are by know means the same.I will disclose only one abilty,Called blink which can move you 20 feet in a heartbeat.(All abilitys are fully upgradable as you progress).
Something new and very enjoyable if you have plenty of time on your hands you could get through this in 2 or 3 days.
I wouldn't recommend that, take your time and enjoy the expirence.Not to many of these sort of games come along.
If you speed through games then replay value is here,But only if you want to get achievements or want a stealth playthough.
I give this game 4 stars because its a really good game.Hope this helped
