    The Knife of Dunwall is a very good DLC for a great game! [May 2013]

    This episode is the beginning for the Daud character, and offers an enjoyable alternative for Dishonored's storyline.

    Dishonored has a good DLC in The Knife of Dunwall. Daud's story begins, with average length, but some adjustments that make it fun to kill and hide. It's more accurate, and very dark and challenging.

    Revisiting Dunwall was very rewarding and also motivated me to complete the original campaign of this great game for the second time. [CD-Action 06/2013, p.77]

    After finishing Dishonored I wanted more, and The Knife of Dunwall gives me exactly that. Hell, at moments I even completely forgot that I was no longer playing Corvo, as both he and Daud do play in generally the same way.

    Don’t expect to witness the events of the original game in a new light. Daud, the new player character, has a story of his own that is spread thin over three disappointingly short missions.

    Very minor spoiler. The knife of Dunwall adds 3 big maps to the game.The first map is set in Rothchild Slaughterhouse, a huge factory where Very minor spoiler. The knife of Dunwall adds 3 big maps to the game.The first map is set in Rothchild Slaughterhouse, a huge factory where the not-so-good people of Dunwall process whale oil. I felt sorry for poor whales and fishes while I snaked my way through rooms filled with gutted sharks, meat hanging from hooks and blood everywhere. The whole map had a very inhumane and dark mood to it. You can also read books about the cruel methods of whaling here (Perfect anti whaling game). On this map you can fight with a new type of enemy that is hard to take down in combat. The second map is set on the wealthier city district, including a huge building which was fun to sneak through and rob. The third map is set on a map familiar from Dishonored: Daud's base. Every map is rather huge with many ways to approach every enemy and situation. Side quest, lethal or non-lethal mission are also present. There are some new weapons (electric mines, Choke Gas etc.) and some new powers and bone-charms. Overall I enjoyed the game, and will do a second play through. The story was good, but felt unfinished (I guess other campaign DLC's will explain and further develop some thing.) Overall Knife of Dunwall adds some memorable gaming hours to the original game, and further expand the lure of the world. Recommended. Expand

    The Knife of Dunwall is a awesome DLC. We play as Daud, the assassin who killed the Empress, no spoiler here since it is in the description ofThe Knife of Dunwall is a awesome DLC. We play as Daud, the assassin who killed the Empress, no spoiler here since it is in the description of the DLC. But anyway the most important is the bridge that does with certain aspects of Dishonored 2.

    The DLC has 3 fantastic missions, and like the rest of the game is as a lot of potential replayability, since you can go guns blazing and get an very intense action or go stealth and not even kill a rat.

    Graphically is more Dishonored, same art style, same quality, same detail. It includes new weapons and powers, specific to the character, but what I like to see most was new models of enemies (especially the ones from the first mission).
    Once again The Knife of Dunwall is awesome. It's a fantastic experience that worth every penny.

    A solid DLC, but a bit short. It will take you probably around 3 hours to complete. The first two levels are very fun and interesting, on parA solid DLC, but a bit short. It will take you probably around 3 hours to complete. The first two levels are very fun and interesting, on par with levels from the original game. The final level is a completely recycled level from the base game and is extremely short. They justify it by making a couple very minor changes and packing it full of enemies to slow your progress. Basically you're paying for 2 new missions and a reskin of a previous mission. The story is interesting and there is a good amount of lore created to tell the story of Daud. It's short, but if you enjoyed the core game, you will enjoy this too. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a love letter to fans of Dishonored who really liked Daud and was interested in who and what the Outsider is to others, The way the game starts *minor spoiler* with Jessamine Kaldwin's assassination from Daud's perspective really draws you in and just doesn't let you down!

    Got this in the summer steam sale. I think I would have given this a higher score if I hadn't just beaten Bioshock Infinite right beforehand.Got this in the summer steam sale. I think I would have given this a higher score if I hadn't just beaten Bioshock Infinite right beforehand. Comparatively, this one nowhere near as compelling, especially where the story is concerned. I didn't finish the game out of boredom and having gone to play something else. Expand
