+ Great story, lots of twists and turns, kept me engaged.
+ Level design is amazing, it gives you A LOT of options on how you want to approach the mission - go in with stealth or blast your way through using crossbows, blades and guns. Decisions you make impact on the game.
+ Awesome set of abilities you can use - such as blink teleportation, stopping time, seeing through walls, possessing animals and humans + more. I really loved this.
+ Weapons can be upgraded and there's multiple ammo types, including posion tipped crossbow bolts and incendiary bullets for guns.
+ Graphics are quite nice, very pleasing visually, which contributes to the immersion.
- The game is pretty short I suppose, around 15-20 hours.
- Sort of linear game, not many side quests, not much exploration (but there is some). Can't criticise this too much.
- The mechanics which judge whether you've been "chaotic" or not in your decisions are unrealistic at best. Despite harming minimal people in several missions and eliminating targets stealthily, I wasn't able to change my "high chaos" rating to low.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
Dishonoured is an incredible game. Very, very fun, the abilities work perfectly throughout the duration of the title, smooth gameplay and nice plotline. Highly recommended.
