Well, I was ready for some great gaming after the ads and got drawn into the trailer movie. I should know better by now but when there is next to nothing out there for pc gamers I jumped all over this one. There is next to nobody else but you in this game and interaction with the environment does not exist. Don't vlow your money, wait for the price to drop. The wheel of your weapons and powers is much like Prototype but at least that game had people in it. Easy game to get through on hard setting.Nice to look at but agin that's all you can do is look. Obvious paths to take because the game itself guides you without coming right out and saying so. Which means not a lot of playing room and after all that's come along I would think every game would have an open game play layout to it. This would be good at $25 but no more than that.What I did like was the powers they make available to purchase but by the time you have enough money for all, the game is over with 8 levels in 2 somewhat seperate scenarios so it is cut in half to some extent. So your done with the game when you should be just getting into your character and the feel for it. The game looked to be very promising and it was, but it was only a promise. I guess we will have to wait until DH 2 comes out now that they made a ton of money from this teaser game. Let's hope so anyway.
Unique gameplay, amazing story
To start off i downloaded this game about three days after it came out, i had been waiting ever since i saw the first trailer for it. As soon as i started it up and began playing, i could tell this was a game that was going to be unlike most other first-person action games out there. At first it felt like a hybrid of bio shock but as i got further in it became clear that it was completely different. There were many twists and turns and plot twists that kept me interested, i found it extremely hard to pull myself away from it. Unfortunately the sneaking in the game was a little to difficult in a way that some places in the game are almost impossible to sneak around in, this upset me because i knew i was going to get the bad ending, which although was surprisingly good. I was overall very satisfie with the game and will definately be trying to acheive the good ending in the near future. DISHONORED!!! Revenge really does solve everything.
Deus Ex has met its match!
This game truly lets you play how you want to. If you feel like rushing in head on and killing everything in your path, go for it. if stealth is more your thing, you don't have to kill anybody. Explore the maps at your own pace. Multiple entrances, exits and pathways, there is NOTHING linear about this game. No game has ever made being an assassin this cool. its true, revenge is a dish best served cold.
Assassin's Creed? Horrible compared to this..
I Love my stealth games and this game succeeded in something that the AC series couldn't do for me, immerse me in the game. All parts of the gameplay are fluid, the graphics are good, the story is perfect and the characterization is done so well. This game is truly the greatest game I have picked up since Red Dead Redemption.
The story was weak, not because it was linear, but because the narrative was simplistic i.e. good vs evil, the way it tried to make the player care about it by tugging at their heart strings from the start - the murdering of a mother in cold blood right before her daughter. Or how poorly written it was i.e. adding plot elements such as your magic abilities by some demi god who just took pity on you “for the journey ahead”. Seemed to much like a fairy tale that I was read at bedtime when I was a kid.
1 more day people!
Game comes out tomorrow, super pumped. This games going to hold me over until assassins creed and Bioshock. Cannot wait!
This game is one of the BEST I have ever played! Everyone should totally look into this. Only bad thing I would say is the graphics are a little bit uneasy for some people. That's like the only "bad" thing about this game.
Game of the Year
One of the best games I have played in a very very long time. Can easily win the Game Of The Year. There are multiple different ways to go through the story. Keeps you entertained for quite some tme. Plus. the storyline is amazing.
This game is great. its about 20 hrs long but still the story line and everything make this game amazing its by far the best game iv played in awhile
