    Fans of the series won't gain much from this iteration, but for those who haven't played Dishonored before, the Definitive Edition is a great game that's worth checking out.

    Looking at Dishonored today, there are elements of the design that haven’t aged gracefully, such as the tendency for mission design to be compartmentalised and the somewhat quirky controls, but the gameplay is still a liberating experience, as it’s grounded in player choice.

    Dishonored still is an outstanding adventure, but this edition doesn't make the most of the new hardware. If you missed it, it's an interesting option; if you didn't, there's little reason to play this version.

    We can’t say anything bad about the beauty of Dishonored, but for this current-gen version we would have expected a better graphical treatment.

    More a direct port than a proper remaster, Dishonored: Definitive Edition adds very little to the original experience both in terms of contents and visual quality; it's therefore only recommended to those who never played the original game.

    You'll like Dishonored Definitive Edition if you didn't play the original. It contains all the DLC and its story and mechanics are outstanding. But if you played Dishonored in 2012, you could end up disappointed.

    It's a rushed conversion work, with a lock on the frame rate, and a couple of graphics adjustments. Not enough to call it a full remaster, and that's a real shame.

    Runs in native 1080p now and looks very sharp and nice especially of you play it on a native 1080p monitor.

    Runs in native 1080p now and looks very sharp and nice especially of you play it on a native 1080p monitor.
    The textures are slightly touched up and some textures that were super blurry are made much better. There are added special effects like dynamic reflections in some parts that look superior to the rough pre-drawn reflections in the original version. There is bump mapping added to walls and ground. Overall great purchase for those who didn't get to play it the first time.

    ORIGINAL GAME: 10/10
    REMASTERED VERSION: 7/10 (when compared to the old versions)

You have freedom of choice, special skills to help you play as you see it convenient. Nice morality system, not forcing to be good or evil. Interesting plot, diversified missions, charismatic main character, not bad voice acting. Difficulty level is just fine, you won't be bored with this game. Pleasant fight, exploration, intuitive control over character. Nice system of character development, including skills, equipment, runes and improvements.

    For minuses I should point medium-quality graphics and music, and irritating ghost system (not possible to tell if you were seen till the end of the mission).

    As a person who never played the original dishonoured on the 360/PS3, I quit enjoyed this remaster:

    Pros:
    -Gameplay is absolutely fantastic. I liked the fact you have a choice weather to kill or not
    -Loads of collectables to find
    -A good variety of powers and weapons to shake things up
    -An interesting storyline with good characters
    -Combat is done very well
    -All the DLC comes with it
    -Sound design is good

    Cons:
    -Graphics disappoint me. They aren't bad but for so called 'next gen' they aren't up the standard they should be
    -No new game plus! Meaning you can't start over with all your powers for a second playthrough :(
    -There isn't really any incentive for people who already played the game to get this as it doesn't add many new things

    Overall:
    Story: 8/10
    Gameplay: 9/10
    Graphics/Sound design: 7/10
    Overall: 8/10

    Great, but too easy.

    Pros: - Great level design - Amazing DLC - Bringing stealth gameplay from the thief series back to life - Blink is
    Great, but too easy.

    Pros:
    - Great level design
    - Amazing DLC
    - Bringing stealth gameplay from the thief series back to life
    - Blink is amazing

    Cons:
    - You are way too overpowered (detective vision shouldn't be a part of this game)
    - Way too handholdy tutorial
    - Stealth is very nerved compared to Thief 1-3
    - It's too easy to get the best ending

    Played Dishonoured through (twice) on the PS3 and it remains one of may all time favourite games, so I was unsure about buying the 'BonePlayed Dishonoured through (twice) on the PS3 and it remains one of may all time favourite games, so I was unsure about buying the 'Bone 'ultimate' version - but I saw the digital version for £15 on the x'Bone store and I had a few games to trade so I did.

    Graphically it looks a bit sharper and feels a bit smoother than it did on the PS3 - but the cell shaded slightly cartoonish graphics limit the improvement.

    I don't regret buying it, but I am getting sick of being sold 'remastered' versions of games I've already bought and played. even if they are 'the classics'. Its almost enough to make me go back to being a PC gamer to get the 'remastered' version from day one.

    It's a stealth game. There's no mention in the games description that it's a stealth game. I hate stealth games.
