After the break, check out a sampling of the game’s latest reviews.
Boston Herald (A) – Like “BioShock,” “Dishonored” is about a decaying world, a city undone from within by hubris and selfishness. The ultimate conclusion owes more to “BioShock 2,” though, with a bittersweet nod to a better future. That slight optimism is welcome after a story full of hopelessness and betrayal. Like the combat and level design, the writing and acting in “Dishonored” are uncommonly good, resulting in a game of surprising elegance.
Strategy Informer (9/10) – “… as far as I’m concerned, Irrational and Eidos Montreal really have to step up their game now Dishonored is here. Amazing.”
Push Square (9/10) – “No two playthroughs of Dishonored will ever be the same. There may be similarities in action and outcome, but the way you happen upon these solutions is so incredibly free-form that everyone will have a different experience.”
New York Post (A) – “Dishonored knows what it is. It believes in itself and it wants you to believe as well. It’s hard not to, even with the game’s misteps later on. It’s fun. It’s gorgeous. There are tons of options. The voice acting and the score are superb. The story is impressive, and at times, emotionally involving. This is gaming in top-form.”
