    Overall, Death of the Outsider ties up the first arc of Dishonored nicely; I have no idea where it’s going to go next, and all I can do is pray that Arkane don’t call it a day, because I adore this series. All other issues seem trivial in the face of it being such a well-crafted piece of art, and my main complaint is that there simply isn't enough of it. I adore this series, and this game. Buy it, play it, and love it.

    Death of the Outsider is a fantastic addition to the Dishonored universe that once again brings the broken city of Karnaca to life. Exploring Arkane Studios’ beautifully realised world feels fresh once again thanks to Billie Lurk, a morally ambiguous heroine with a flexible repertoire of skills that are a joy to experiment with. Death of the Outsider achieves more in terms of content and narrative than many games strive for, which is a fascinating achievement considering its meagre price tag.

    A fantastic expansion to an excellent game, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a macabre joy to play from start to finish.

    A resoundingly confident continuation of 2016’s Game of the Year, Death of the Outsider is a worthy addition to the Dishonored pantheon.

    Death of the Outsider has neither the out-of-this-world level design nor the masterful story writing of Dishonored 2, but it does not fail to impress as it offers a true Dishonored experience and a satisfying closure to the “Kaldwin Era”.

    Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a fitting resolution to a familiar story. Billie Lurk is an excellent character to showcase the underside of a world already known but with plenty of mystery left in it.

I really enjoyed more of the Dunwall and its universe, and its expertly crafted levels, excellent variety of ways to play, and great ambiance and world building. Other games say it, but the Dishonored franchise really truly lets you resolve situations multiple ways, and each humongous level is a mini-open-world with tons of these choices. A lovely experience and I'm looking forward to the next new IP from Arkane, although I would gladly play another Dishonored if they found a way to do it. Expand

Frankly, I prefer Death of the Outsider to the first Dishonored. Expand

It does do SOME things better than any other Dishonored game and overall i don't regret buying the game. At the same time I never beat it so...yeah I dont know quite how to feel about it.

    Story/Characters - This is by far the weakest part of the game. Flat character development and a bit of a lobotomization of the main characters. Theres a lot of wasted potential, but I dont want to spoil anything so I'll leave it at that.

    Gameplay - This is a mixed bag. I like the idea and experimentation angle the team went with. I definitely got a "guinea pig" vibe with this entry. It almost feels like a Thief game in a few levels (3rd one in particular), with multiple ways to progress, powers that revolve around planning and strategy rather than being a "ghostly shadow god among the dumb mortals" like a fully powered Corvo. Overall it changes the approach to situations. Also I noticed significantly less health items and equipment, with more exploration needed to find them. This amplifies the risk reward idea. However the powers are very underwhelming. I get they fit a new playstyle the dev team was trying to push onto the player, but that restricts freedom, and taking that away when it was in EVERY other installment makes it feel restricted and lackluster at times. Also, the "blink" ability is super clunky compared to the fluid acrobatics of Daud and Corvo. On the side note the backstab/choke mechanic feels like it took a BIIIIIIIG step backwards. Get ready to have to stand and stare at the back of a lot of heads while the game decides if you within the 4cm area directly behind the NPCs to justify a backstab/choke. Cant tell you how many times I had to load my game because I poked a guard in the butt rather than jam my sword through the back of his neck. Really frustrating

    So in conclusion I liked this game, but hated some parts leaving me with a mixed feeling. I will probably never beat this game because I really dont care what happens. More than likely I will just replay a few levels down the road the obviously had the most love and time put into them and forget the rest to the depths ooooofffff theeeee voooiiiid oooOOooOOooOOooOO hahahaha

    Truth is I will buy any installment of Dishonored unless it goes full Konami. I love that the dev team is trying new things and will always support them in that endeavor

I just wish you rounded it out withEsTora - That's a well-written negative review with quite valid points on story, character and themes. I just wish you rounded it out with thoughtful reflection on gameplay, mechanics and such. The game was an enjoyable playthrough, but I agree with your points on story. Honestly, Dishonored is one of those few games that didn't really merit a sequel, it was such a well-written self-contained story. Dishonored 2 was a stretch and seemed superfluous. And a final 'stand-alone' seemed excessive. Expand

    As a massive fan of Disonored 1 & 2 this stand alone extra which I got on the day of release by preorderering for £15 didn't disappoint. New powers, new weapons. I was very surprised they didn't just reuse any of the last games levels. I can't give it a 10 because that means there can never be a better game. Brilliant story, brilliant gameplay. I love this game which I stretched 20 hours out of one play through. Also there's a new game plus mode letting you use the Disonored 2 powers. I can't stop playing.
