Screw Assassin's Creed, this is what a stealth game should be like. Dishonored is a first-person stealth adventure game that casts you into the role of Corvo Attano, a former bodyguard, now turned supernatural assassin all because the Empress of the city of Dunwall has been murdered and he has been framed for her death.
Everything about Dishonored is fantastic.
+Enemy AI reacts to everything the player does, whether they have been seen or not.
+A wide variety of skills and weaponry makes every playthrough unique - take the silent route focused on stealth, or be ruthless and slaughter everything in sight.
+The art style and direction is awesome.
+Actions have consequences, and some of them can be quite significant...
+Excellent level design. If you can see a door in front of you, you most likely can open it. If you see a rooftop, you can climb to it. The possibilities when it comes to navigating levels are nearly endless!
+Likeable cast and characters.
+Some of the textures look a little outdated when viewed close up, considering how this was released in 2012.
+A couple of characters exist merely as plot devices.
Overall, Dishonored is a fantastic game if you can overlook what it doesn't do quite right, and maximises what it does do right. The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches DLC only adds to the sheer awesome that is this game, so I highly reccomend those too.
