Released two years ago, Dishonored let us assume the role of Corvo Attano, the personal bodyguard of the Empress and her daughter Emily. At least initially, since soon after the beginning of the game the Empress is murdered by assassins you could not stop, Emily is kidnapped, and you are blamed for it all. To deal with the conspirators and rescue Emily, you become an assassin yourself, aided by some new friends, including The Outsider.
Dishonored is an action-adventure game with stealth mechanics and magic abilities granted to you by The Outsider. These abilities including blinking from one location to another, possessing another living creation, bending time, and even summoning a pack of rats to attack your enemies and devour corpses. Given the graphic nature of much of the game's content, it has an M rating for blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes, and strong language. If such content is inappropriate for you, then you likely should not be reading this review either.
After two years, is Dishonored a respectable title worthy of our time, or should it be laid to rest, like the Empress? Read on to find out.
