Now that Dishonored has released and had some time to circulate around, it's a good time to talk a little bit about it. If you haven't tried Dishonored yet, and you enjoy games like BioShock, and Assassin's Creed, you really should pick up this title.
Don't get me wrong, it isn't exactly like either of those, but it does have some of the aspects of them. In Dishonored, you take on the role of Corvo, the legendary guardian of the Empress, who ends up being wrongfully framed for her tragic murder; a crime that Corvo would never have committed.
In order to seek vengeance for her death, the kidnapping of her daughter and for the setup that brought it all on, he must make shaky alliances, and become an assassin. Dishonored shows how even allies can't be completely trusted, and that fame and recognition many times outweigh even the best of intentions.
As Corvo progresses, he learns to harness incredible skills and powers, including possession and portaling, among others. It doesn't have a particularly open world, but you are able to move around and explore a little, while finding things to help you along in your journey.
Fans of BioShock will likely see some of the same types of characteristics in Dishonored, and Assassin's Creed has a bit of a similar storyline. It isn't necessarily a game for everyone, but it was voted one of the best action-adventure games of 2012, and one of the best over all games for 2012.
Why? Many people really enjoyed the concept of being able to make decisions that might change some of the game's progression. It also gives it a bit of a replay value, just so you can see the different choices.
It is certainly a game that can be enjoyed by the masses. There is a beautiful world in which it takes place, and an interesting story to follow.Definitely a game to at least give a try, especially of you're a big gamer.
And just as a funny side note, Corvo, your character's name in the game Dishonored, means sausage in Swedish! Just in case you might like some fun to the game when you play, you can think of that whenever someone says your name.
