    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.

    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.

    Bought this to see the difference from Xbox one to the one x. Play the first 3 levels on the old system and now finished it on the one x. TheyBought this to see the difference from Xbox one to the one x. Play the first 3 levels on the old system and now finished it on the one x. They made it look great on the one x, and the load times are cut in half.

    As for the game it has been a lot of fun and the fact that you can beat the game without killing someone is insane. I don't know how people are doing this, seems crazy hard to me. I can see playing this game through at least one more time as the second character. I really like the mixed open world/linear design. Keeps you on track but lets you explore at the same time. They gave players plenty of choice in ways to play the game.

    Como eu já tinha jogado o Dishonored e me diverti muito, sabia que não ia me arrepender de comprar este, a Bethesda fez o jogo pra uma nova geração de consoles. Embora o gráficos do jogo não sejam o forte dele, o gameplay é incrível.

    With a game so artistically impressive but technically simple, running at 30fps it astonishes me that the visuals are so damn blurry andWith a game so artistically impressive but technically simple, running at 30fps it astonishes me that the visuals are so damn blurry and really strain my eyes, especially the exteriors. Couple that with a aggressive depth of field and a seemingly narrow field of view and the framerate drops, it doesnt produce a very entertaining game. Just for your information, my xbox live marketplace review has been taken down, for being honest i presume. The game just feels horrendous to play, the narrow fov, the frames dropping, and how horrible it runs in general, the original which i've played 7 times, feels a lot smoother than this one. The ACTUAL graphics are great, the story was interesting, the character models looked really refined compared to the background exteriors. And apart from Corvo's occasionally goofy voice/writing, the rest of the voice acting sounds really good. Put it this way, i'd rather have my foreskin stapled to a desk, then have someone shout FIRE!! than play this game again, in it's current state. Expand

    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
