    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

    I wasn't a fan of first Dishonored so I wasn't expecting much of it's successor. I play games from literally every genre and I am enjoying them, but Dishonored is this kind of game that doesn't do it for me. In my opinion the plot is not interesting and the steampunk setting is very odd in this game, but I can understand that others can enjoy it, that's why I have to say that if you liked Dishonored, Dishonored 2 you'll probably like as well.

    What I can say is that the graphics and audio are really good, I wasn't expecting them to be on such a high level.

And TF with those hilariously expensive rewire tools?Why can't I just find and cut the necessary thick,red wires? Hilariously funny.I am glad I didn't buy this game.Its not even worth to play free.Just hilariou.And oh,did I mention that you have to search 3 rooms to get only 3 bullets,you need to upgrade slots with hilarious expense just so you can carry more items?HILARIOUS.
