    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.
    The textures are slightly touched
    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)

Its story isn’t exceptional, but it does well to serve this stealth masterpiece.

    Two points that prevented this game from attaining perfection:

    1) When the stealth failed, the sword battles with the guards were dodgy and confusing.

    2) In the main story, there was no real connection to the protagonist. It really took some real attachment out of the game which would’ve made it more relatable and enjoyable.

    I hadn't played it on the last generation but the game is immensely fun to troll the brain dead AI of the enemies and the god-like powers.

    I loved Dishonored on 360 but this port is bad. The core game is fine. Trials are stupid so didn't bother with them. Brigmore Witches DLC isI loved Dishonored on 360 but this port is bad. The core game is fine. Trials are stupid so didn't bother with them. Brigmore Witches DLC is bug ridden.

    1) Crashes to desktop at least once a session.
    2) If you stand still then, after a few seconds, Daud starts moving anyway. This makes standing on thin stuff like walls and rafters nearly impossible. I believe this was an issue on 360 as well.
    3) Corrupted saves - this is the worst part. On the last mission the saves keep getting corrupted. Auto save or manual doesn't matter. I was toward the end of the level and reloaded the save. Crashed to desktop. Tried again and same thing. I had to go back to the previous auto-save. After the auto-save loaded I saved in a new slot. A little while later I saved again. Then I had to reload and both saves are corrupted. Any game that corrupts saves is bad. It doesn't matter how the rest of the game was, I'm within 15 mins of completing the DLC and I potentially have to start over. Bad, bad, bad.
