Dishonored Review | IGN

IGN: "Open-ended gameplay, a memorable world and incredible aesthetics make Dishonored one of the year's most refreshing experiences." (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.2/10

Not a bad start for a game that just just being blasted by some unknown preview sites. Refreshing is a good word. Now send me the demo so I can judge for myself please.

This game looks too damn good to care what review scores it gets, I'm going to be playing this as soon as it shows up in the mail.
guitarded77  +   708d ago
I can't wait to play this game. After I saw the GTTV episode where Dishonored was the focus of the show, I was sold. An original new IP with solid gameplay, a great story and cool environments... this game could be the next Bioshock.

EDIT: Haha... made my Bioshock comparison before watching the review. Eerie.

Any word
on the length of the game?
andibandit  +   708d ago
4 hours
HammadTheBeast  +   707d ago
People have done speed runs of 4. But most should take about 20, and if you do everything, even more. It's up to you.
callahan09  +   707d ago
When did IGN start doing full tenths of a point again? Last I remembered they were doing only half point increments. I must be out of the loop.

Anyway, this game looks awesome and I am very tempted to play it immediately. I haven't bought a game on release in like a year... This could be the one haha.
MariaHelFutura  +   707d ago
This game is probably great and I will end up playing it. BUT, IGN gives everything decent a 9.
chriski333  +   708d ago

Awesome thanks MD, so pumped for this game. Got to love a great new IP dropping right before the onslaught of blockbuster sequels. If its this good I hope people take a chance and pick it up. One more day!

Review scores shouldnt make you buy or not buy something.
Nunchez  +   708d ago
Yeah I always buy games probably based on gameplay videos and a little bit on people liking it. Never trust reviews unless they're from a respected site.
mikemadden  +   708d ago
.2? Just call it a 9.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   708d ago
I think the .2 is meant to signify that it is slightly better than a 9.

Good review, I laughed when I read whalepunk. It'll be a while before I can get this but I'm really looking forward to it.

Arkane Studios did a great job :) Loved their Bioshock 2 and will love Dishonored!
zgoldenlionz  +   708d ago
I never tried bioshock 2 if I end up loving this game as much as I think I will I'll have to give B2 a go.
r21  +   708d ago
Well its no bioshock 1, but it sure as hell is a great game :D
Relientk77  +   708d ago
A fantastic score, this games awesome
telekeneticmantis  +   708d ago
Actually read it don't care much for scores
the odds are very much in your favor in the game, but they introduce some more challenging enemies, the story is not great, but it has a memorable cast.

The gaming field seemed very poor this holiday, I was actually considering getting COD, or Assassins Creed. 2 games I haven't gotten in years and am not very fond of. I might get this and cover cover both of those tastes in one game sort of.
MoreRPG  +   708d ago
This game is getting lots of great reviews. Gonna have to give this game a try.
StreetsofRage  +   708d ago
Wow talk about a game that came out of nowhere. I only started hearing about this game a few weeks ago. Consider me sold, Day 1! :)
Arcanine  +   708d ago
Very excited... my 1st born child today and dishonored tomorrow great way to start the week.
monkey nuts  +   707d ago
Good luck with that. Any free time you get will be spent catching up on your zzzzzzz's. Congrats anyways. Won't be long before you'll be hearing the tiny pitta patta of drains on your resources. lol
Captain Qwark 9  +   707d ago
still getting xcom over this. but will be picking this up in a few weeks still
MasterD919  +   707d ago
Getting good reviews, but I still plan on trying it from RedBox first.
WeskerChildReborned  +   707d ago
I'm surprised at all the positive reviews it has gotten. One person even claimed it could be the best game of this gen.
taquito  +   707d ago
from article;

"As is becoming standard, PC owners are in for the biggest visual treat. Dishonored does look excellent on console - I finished it on Xbox 360, then started again on PS3, and thoroughly enjoyed playing on both. You may notice minor frame rate issues and a little tearing, but nothing that will really take away from the gameplay. That said, it's significantly better-looking on a modern PC, so that should be the platform of choice for players who have the option."

-becoming the standard, lol.....its BEEN the standard since 360/ps3 were released, besides maybe 2 games i can think of (iron man, and saints row 2) the pc version of EVERY multiplat ever made this gen has completely and utterly FACE STOMPED the the console versions

60 frames
8x AA
true hd (1080p, 1200p, 1440p, 1600p) instead of lowly 720p or far less
v-sync vs nasty tearing
no pop-in

consoles have far outworn their shelf life
taquito  +   707d ago
cool pic, thats all you buddy....i'm actually pretty ripped, play sports, workout....and get laid, you know, all things you are incapable of......consoles are for poor people.....enjoy it peasant
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   707d ago
