    An excellent sequel, whose mistakes are forgiven thanks to the fantastic level design and pure enjoyment of playing. A masterpiece? Not quite. But it is not too far from it. [Issue #269]

    There's so much to explore, to experience, that I think it's essential playing — despite the slightly disappointing stealth.
  3. Just like its predecessor, Dishonored 2 is another masterpiece. It has a great atmosphere, hundreds of different gameplay mechanics, a gorgeous presentation and therefore a flawless mainline.

    Weak story notwithstanding, Arkane Studios has again delivered a truly excellent stealth action game. [Issue#258, p.53]

    It may feel like just more Dishonored, but Arkane have improved everything they could’ve and made a truly satisfying sequel. We just hope it’s not the last.

    I have noticed considerable framerate inconsistencies when trying to get around a level quickly or when using the spyglass to zoom. I feel as though I should mention these issues, but they didn’t detract from my experience of the game. I’m still in love with the level design and I still think the ability system favors the use of one or two abilities.

    Dishonored 2 is a fantastic game. It may, in fact, be the best game you really shouldn’t risk buying right now, because right now it’s a technical mess. Yes, I hope a patch comes out soon which fixes a lot of these issues – but yes, I’m also worried that a lot of this is baked into the new Void Engine, and if that’s the case… well, this might be something to look into in a year or two. I’ll keep you updated, but for now, a definite “buyer beware” on an otherwise phenomenal game.

Somehow an upgrade in every way from the perfection that was the first game. Lives up to and surpasses all hype. I'm really not sure what else to do or say besides give it a perfect 10. W-o-w. Expand

    The second one improved on that strong formula,and give us a bigger environment to explore,
    more skills and tools to mess around with.The characters are well written,the story is great and the gameplay
    is freaking awesome.This is suppose to be an eight out of ten game.But I take one point away because of it's

    Unfortunately you need a beefy pc to play this super smooth at 1080p with 60fps on ultra...I had to get and 1080ti On my i74770k@4.4MHZ to get stable 60FPS!

    Let’s hope the Dishonored: Death of the Outsider DLC plays better as this game really deserve more optimization!
