    Dishonored remains one of the best stealth games of the last generation. The main story along with the inclusion of all of the add-ons can offer up to 30 hours of utterly satisfying gameplay. Combined with the improved visuals, the city of Dunwall deserves everyone’s attention.

    It’s a pristine release that’s being saved from fading into history with this re-release and delivers all the content as a thank you. For the double dippers considering this, a stern word of caution. Very little has changed since you left Dunwall but if you really get a kick out of your controller talking to you then by all means, go in for the kill.

    Some problems with AI, story direction and character development still exist. But nonetheless this is beautifully crafted stealth-action that delivers – also thanks to the included DLC.

    While not the lavish remaster fans might have hoped for, this port of Dishonored remains a great stealth-action title, and the addition of Knives of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches only amplify that point.

    While the Definitive Edition doesn't particularly bring anything new to the table, nor does it enhance the original game as much as other titles that made the jump from last-to-current-gen, Dishonored luckily has a great foundation that helped ease this transition.

    Again, this is still a great game, but it’s a port that unfortunately feels largely unnecessary.
  7. I liked the original Dishonored version and I'm very exiting for the new title: Dishonored 2. But Dishonored: Definitive Edition is a complete disaster with low frame-rates and bad graphics. You may skip this one.

    The best gameplay in its kind. It is fantastic that you can deal with any situation in the game as you want. If you suck in any stealthThe best gameplay in its kind. It is fantastic that you can deal with any situation in the game as you want. If you suck in any stealth moment, and for example get noticed by someone, you can always fix it and get a good action moment instead of loading last save. Or even forget about any stealth and complete the game as a good action.

    Not so big leap in graphics from the original. But the game looks very good in 1080p and smooth.

    Visually I did not enjoy the character designs. Most men in the game looked like ruffian gorillas but the rest looked good. The game still played beautifully. This isn't as close as impressive gameplay-wise as Bioshock but definitely a good title anyway.

    Very solid title for stealth fans that won't disappoint.

    One of the worst games I have ever played. The game mechanics are terrible and I don't understand the choice by the first person.
