    Will you carve a bloody swath of hateful vengeance through the crumbling city of Dunwall, or will you stay your blade and liberate her from the shadows, bringing all who conspire against her to poetic justice? Dishonored gives you the choice to play it your way; whether going in sword swinging, slinking through shadows and across rooftops, or using magic in a variety of ways.

    I'll avoid talking about the story, but I will say that it is both compelling and branching, with varying endings depending on how you choose to play the game. The same goes for the two story based DLC included in this version, The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches.

    The art style is unique, and while not everyone will like it, I think it fits the atmosphere rather well, and the voice work is fairly good, though not always perfect. As for the gameplay, it's crisp and responsive; the controls are good and feel pretty natural, and the game has good hit and stealth detection.

    The one real negative of this game is the Trials of Dunwall DLC (also included). The achievements are a real bastard, and several are essentially luck based. They may only take you a few hours but could also take over a dozen, so completionists might want to keep this in mind. That said, I believe the main game and two story DLC more than make up for the difficult completion. With a sequel coming soon, I highly recommend this game if you haven't played it yet; it's one of my favorite games in years, and easily one of the best I've ever played.

    thepack1221I could not agree anymore with this! This game is fantastic, and when you finally do finish Dunwall City Trials, it is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

    Gilbert PrimeI made the error of playing Dishonored 2 first and all the flaws that were finessed in that game are on full display here. Unlike the sequel which accommodates stealth very well, this game claims to supports both styles but so clearly caters to fighting as to be ridiculous at times. Way too many cases of multiple guards milling around a 100 sq ft space for no reason other than to give combat fans more targets. And unlike the sequel where you could check your stats on the fly, you have to wait until mission's end to see if you had any alerts and if you have to replay the entire level.

    Well, I for one loved/love this game. Had on my 360 and got the 50% discount for the previous owned digital version. $20 for the Definitive version on my One? Absolutely. Didnt play on pc so the graphical improvements over the 360 are really blowing me away and hadnt played since back in 2012 and I am loving it even more and playing through on hardest difficulty level which I never got around to doing in the original play through. All I can say is that anyone who missed this on yourself a tremendous favor and buy. It will cost $40 if you didnt own the 360 version but its better than most games on the Xbox One. Anyone who was looking forward to Thief on the One and that style of gameplay but was disappointed(I was ) by the end result this IS the game for you because the stealth gameplay, if you choose to go that route, is soooo rewarding. If youd rather go with a balls to the wall violent approach, that route is equally rewarding...just get it and enjoy. THe story itself is also solid, exceptional even, and absorbing.
