    Dishonored - Review Thread & Discussion



    Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.


    Release Date: October 9, 2012
    Genre: First-Person Action
    Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
    Developer: Arkane Studios

    We normally don’t like sharing leaks about early review scores, but Dishonored is one of our most anticipated games of 2012 and we are happy to inform you that CVG’s score got leaked today. The reason we are happy is because the game gained an almost perfect score (9.5/10), suggesting that it is indeed one of the best games of 2012. Of course, early reviews can’t be trusted – well, most of the times – but we are pretty sure that Arkane Studios is capable of delivering a really interesting title.

    According to the closing comments of CVG’s review, Dishonored offers incredible freedom, features an exciting and believable dystopian world and works equally well as a stealth or an action game. In its video review (that was also leaked but is private right now), CVG stated that Dishonored is GOTY and that it was a “once in a generation game that rewards patience.”

    In other news, some gamers got their copies earlier than anticipated and managed to finish the game under four hours. We should note that other gamers have finished Arkane’s title in under six-seven hours, suggesting that the game’s length depends entirely on your playing style. Level designer Dan Todd, on the other hand, said that the game should last about 20 hours, give or take. As he wrote in the official Bethesda forum:

    “My ghost and no kills playthrough took 22 hours. That’s without exploring every nook and cranny, and knowing the solution to everything beforehand.”

    Dishonored will be officially unleashed on October 12th on PC, X360 and PS3!

    Freakin sweet. I knew this game was going to be a sleeper hit. The art direction along with the gameplay has looked fantastic. Glad it's getting some positive recognition from the gaming media.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    I was in gamestop talking about how awesome this game will be.I'm glad it's looking good.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I'm just excited to explore the world and look in every corner to explore things. I need no reviews. I knew as soon as I heard about this game last year I wanted it.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Ever since I knew Arkane Studios were responsible for it I was hyped.

    And I wasn't disappointed. Bring it on!

    The game looks really good!. But I'm kind of worried about bugs and such that it may have on the PS3.

    It's been developed by Arkane Studios, not Bethesda.

    I have been really looking forward to this game for awhile. Even though Bethesda is not the dev, just the publisher I may have to shake off my reservations about the ps version and pick it up this weekend. Just don't want to get burned, again!

    Edit: I'm definitely not here to cry about my past experiences with Beth games..in fact they have been some of my most recent faves...this title really does look great.

    I am waiting for Amazon to do a buy 2 get one free deal and this game will be on the list. They normally do it around this time although usually I end up getting the games I want day 1 so I can't benefit from it. This time I am waiting and their deals are no where in sight!

    Just picked my copy up today and looks good so far. When I first saw the gameplay, it reminded me of BioShock, and that's a good thing.

    I'm glad that game has turned out as great as it looks (always thought it looked like a blend of Bioshock, Half Life 2, and Assassin's Creed).

    Seems to be one of the must haves of 2012.
