    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 really like the game so far into it about six hours and want to keep playing - which makes this a great game for a change! I have playedI really like the game so far into it about six hours and want to keep playing - which makes this a great game for a change! I have played more of this campaign than Titanfall 2 or Battlefield 1 so yea, It is a much needed change from the typical shooter. I am running a i7-6700K (4.4 Ghz) and GTX 1080 Xtreme and 16 GB RAM playing the game in 4K with everything maxed out - pulling 35-60 FPS no stutters not crashing = no problem. I really like the game, the details and scenery are amazing to look at... this is why I bought a gaming PC with hardware that can run software maxed out for the best gaming experience possible, and this game delivers on the software end!

    It is an extremely tightly knit product with almost no weak points. Therefore, I definitely recommend to get acquainted.

    Good storyline and the same fun action/stealth aesthetic of the first, but the world building feels lackluster in comparison and the idea ofGood storyline and the same fun action/stealth aesthetic of the first, but the world building feels lackluster in comparison and the idea of playing one of two characters feels like a cheap way to get some more hours of playtime out of you. As well, easiness on the verge of becoming boring still plagues this sequel. Expand

Frame rates are all over thePlaying on an overclocked AMD 8320 @ 4.2ghz with a GTX 1060 6gb with 16gb of RAM and the game runs like a dog. Frame rates are all over the place, ranging from +80fps down to 20fps and lower with constant judder and a general unease which makes extended plays nauseating.. Changing visual settings has limited or no effect. Have had a couple of D3D crashes also which just adds to the problems. Have no idea what is going on as I'm sure there is a great game under it all but it is impossible to experience it in its current state. Really, really disappointed and cannot recommend it in it's current state. on the PC. Almost on a par with the Batman AK fiasco. Expand

    Don't bother buying the PC version. This game isn't optimized at all, constant frame drops. Even when you set everything to Low and lowerDon't bother buying the PC version. This game isn't optimized at all, constant frame drops. Even when you set everything to Low and lower resolution from 1440p to 1080p it can't keep up with the FPS. GTX 1080Ti, everything low and 1080p and can't keep up with FPS.
    Bethesda support keeps sending you copy-paste templates while ignoring the fact that any other title works fine and without any issues.
