    The detailed missions, versatile powers, and atmospheric storytelling will keep you coming back for multiple playthroughs if only to learn more about the world, play with the powers, and find every last thing to either steal or kill/subdue. Simply put, Dishonored 2 is a must play for stealth fans and an easy recommendation for most gamers.

    Overall I found the game deeply fascinating, engrossing, and thoroughly enjoyable, and it comes highly recommended to fans of action games.

    Dishonored 2 is just the latest example in a long line of games that continue to illustrate the close relationship between quality stealth games and emergent gameplay. Any given playthrough will present you with myriad chances to both create and react to opportunities, many of which appear with little to no warning. It's in surviving these situations (preferably undetected) where Dishonored 2 delivers its most tangible rushes and most profound sense of gratification. It's a tale of vengeance that's presented in an imaginatively conceived world, one that is as threatening as it is inviting.

    Dishonored 2 is an improvement over the original game in every sense of the word. Its real value lies in the fact that it offers unique and rewarding game experiences for any type of player, whether you like to murder everyone on sight or prefer a more… ghostly approach.

    Dishonored 2 is an amazing game. Played entirely in first-person, the freedom it bestows players closely resembles that of the Elder Scrolls games. Although the game is broken up into distinct levels rather than an open world, each chapter is huge and filled with atmosphere, detail, and myriad nooks and crannies to explore. The Empire really feels like a believable steampunk world, one with countless stories to tell.

    Dishonored 2 is a great game for those who never played the first game and for returning gamers who enjoyed Dishonored. Its challenging gameplay, collectibles and the ability to experience the game’s story from two different points of view are more than enough to keep you interested.

    Dishonored 2 tries to take on so much that it can't actually keep up with itself, even on PC. If Arkane can get a handle on the optimization and delivers a DLC campaign that's on par with the original's take on Daud, it'll be one of the easiest recommendations I've made all year.

Between having your choice of protaonists (the familiar or something completely new) to the new, incredibly clever and inventive missions, and the much expanded freedom of how you choose to play, this game far succeeds and builds upon the original.

The game is breath taking ascetically, the art style is great. As for story, i cant really say anything bad it was really fun to play through. The level design is far more complex than any other stealth game I've played in the past and i really found myself enjoying it. Highly recommend playing Expand

    I just started the first real mission so this review is a wip. What I can say so far:

    Gameplay feels great, they improved the vertical aspect (climbing/jumping feels better but you couldn't sneak through everything on a pipe) and with alarms and some of the new powers you definitely have more options.
    One big point of criticism for at least for me is the same problem I had with the recent Assassin's Creed, it is too easy to fight big groups of enemies, I killed 4 with ease and 5 wouldn't be a big problem either and that is too forgiving in my opinion. I understand you play a skilled fighter but undisciplined gamers won't have fun if they do this all the time. Still for me isn't a big problem since I avoid big fights and if I get into one I load my old save immediately. If you are sneaky like I it won't be a huge problem.

    Graphics:
    Looks great but with some flaws. When I was on a fast boat it started to lag (around 13 fps) and sometimes the blur can really annoy you. (while playing you won't notice)

    I will expand the review when I played a bit more but at the moment I can say that if you are a passionate stealth gamer who is one with the shadows buy it immediately.

La historia no esta mal, pero el final es un poco flojo. Y en cuanto gráficos en la version xboxone tiene un pequeño efecto de blur que puede llegar a marear un poco. Por lo demas es un magnifico videojuego y uno de los mejores del año Expand

It suffers from a marked lack of enemies, and the connection between what's happened and what you are doing is delivered in pace killing expositions. The game can sort of plod along no matter which play style you choose with repetition becoming a major problem. That being said presentation quality alone carries a lot of the time I spent in game.

    Very disappointed in this game. i loved the first one. Voice acting is terrible.. Story is weak. Level design is very cramped. The thing I hatVery disappointed in this game. i loved the first one. Voice acting is terrible.. Story is weak. Level design is very cramped. The thing I hat the most is that you have to sneak around everywhere you can not just walk around and explore the world. I would save your game after every kill. I do not recommend this game... maybe for $19.99 Expand
