"Basically just Taken with magic!" ~ Honest Game Trailers - Dishonored
In a world torn apart by corruption, violence, and insanely aggressive rats, 2 assassins will take justice into their own hands and reunite the nation -- through peaceful negotiation and diplomacy! Just kidding! They just murder everyone!
Slide into the wacky face mask of Corvo Attano, master assassin and terrible royal body guard, who's boss and lover is stabbed in front of his very eyes by a bunch of teleporting assholes who them frame his for the murder. Forcing him to go on a game-long revenge spree, to take out everyone even slightly involved! Where he'll use his ethically questionable shadow powers to rescue his daughter and restore her to the throne, in a plot that's basically just Taken with magic! Then experience the sequel where the exact same s*** happens again 15 years later, in a framing device so lazy, even Corvo sounds bored with it. [Corvo (flatly): "Nothing will stop me from bringing you home, Emily."]. Ugh.
Explore the unique setting of the Dishonored series, in a fantasy industrial revolution, where everything runs of fish oil the developers call "whale-punk" which is basically just steampunk if youo replace all the smokestacks with whale corpses! And get lost in the incredible art and level design that's so intricate and detailed, it almost makes up for the extremely linear storyline that's told mostly by a talking human heart, a goth kid who's a big fan of exposition, and... reading! Gross!
Prepare yourself to be conflicted by Dishonored's chaos system, as the game mines up a huge variety of creative ways to murder people -- but treats you like an asshole if you actually do! Filling the streets with nastier enemies and funneling you off into the bad ending, unless you go full Batman as you knock out everyone with tranquilizer darts and chokeholds! And a bizarre morality guilty-trip that seriously dilutes the fun of the power fantasy. Also, you're still probably killing most of these dudes. [Character strangles opponent, tosses him into deep water. His body floats lifelessly]. Yep. Totally dead.
Get ready to activate your OCD as Dishonored presents you with intricate, multi-level maps full of secrets to uncover -- then hands you an item that tells you where to find them all. Forcing you to spend hours scrounging up every bone charm and rune you can get your hands on. Expanding your suite of tactical options and creative murder magic, and unlocking new time and rat-based powers for Corvo or new shadow-demon stuff for Emily, who's basically just the protagonist of the darkness. Then realize that none of that helps anyway because you're terrible at stealth games!
So grab your flippy knife, chug down some whale spunk and enter a magical world of assassination that fantasy stealth fans better enjoy, because now that they f***** up the Thief franchise forever, it's pretty much this and infinity Assassin's Creed sequels until the end of time. Unless, I don't know... someone puts a steampunk hat in Hitman or something...
