For those who like a hint of steampunk in their Victorian Era, Dishonored is a game for you. You play Corveaux, who seems to be a skilled assassin as well as a diplomat, and unravel an uprising slowly. I imagine there is more to the game than even this, but for the first bit I played, I enjoyed the story as well as the game play.
In a time where there isn’t much in the way of plot for most video games, I found Dishonored to be a gem. Though it’s not the best it could be, it by far outshines many games. The game play is smooth, there are puzzles, good use of devices and interesting combat.
Many say it’s practically the same game as Assassin’s Creed, and it’s very similar in many aspects, but I would say the difference of setting and story is enough to keep any gamer interested in this game. Assassin’s Creed and the rest of the franchise doesn’t have badly made games, after all, that’s why they are so popular. So if you enjoy that genre of game or want to see what all the fuss is about, definitely pick it up.
Below is a 40+ minute video of my early game game-play. Enjoy!
