This was a fair improvement on the sequel that did a decent job of carrying on the story.
Some of it felt repetitive - rat swarms have not become blood flies, Corvo and Emily have pretty much the same powers (at least in effect) and there is a bit of a rinse-and-repeat feel to some missions - but it gives you a good few hours of solid single-player campaign.
It's on at the moment for £10 - so if you liked the original, think this looks good or just want to try it then please go for it. It has a distinct art style and gameplay mechanics and will give you a fair bit of fun.
Two points I don't mind, but find irksome: 1) The army barracks use very poor quality pillows. This means all guards have very stiff necks and will only look up if need be. Therefore, you can avoid their gaze by being 2ft above them at all times. 2) The moral compass is set to 'non-fatal = good / fatal = bad'. I get that slaughtering goons is not nice, but the game gives you exploding swords and torso-ripping smoke tentacles. WTF am I supposed to non-lethally do with those?!
This is a great game, Gameplay is just as good as the last. You can either play corvo or his daughter in this and both have different powers. Already played it twice as there are so many decisions that can affect the world. Would recommend :) especially if you enjoyed the 1st one
Waited ages for this game until I could afford an Xbox1. I know most everybody else has had one for ages and may have moved onto the XBox1X! Arrived a couple of days before the estimated delivery date. Game and strategy guide both excellent. Really pleased.
Having played the first one and enjoying the story and gameplay, I decided to buy the second one in the series. Good game, yes there are glitches here and there but as an overall package it works and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Was it as griping as the first, no but still a worthy, well made entry to the story of dishonoured.
