This game is one for stealth fans. In it you play Corvo a royal bodyguard who witnesses his empress's murder and joins with some loyalists when he's framed for the murder to get revenge on the real culprit. As i've already said stealth is the main focus here (though you can go in all guns blazing if you want it just makes things a lot harder) and it does stealth really well. You get and can unlock a variety of weapons and powers to help you on your way.
One of the games best features are the big open levels where there is usually several ways to go about your mission and lots to explore and discover as well. The setting of the city of Dunwall as a plague ridden steampunk city is another excellent feature of the game.
- each level is pretty open with various routes and methods to go about completing your mission
-Dunwall is a brilliant setting with the city having lots of character and very memorable
-Non-lethal and lethal approach are both options with real benefits and consequences (personally i found non-lethal more fun)
- a lot of the characters are bland and forgettable.
Overall this game is a gem. If you enjoyed the Bioshock games this may be right up your street. Also worth buying the GOTY edition as the Knife of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches DLC are excellent additions to the game.
