Dishonored A Smash Hit With 88 Metacritic Rating And Lots Of Praise

Earlier i (Rizwan Editor) talked about an Early Dishonored review giving the game a well deserved 9.5 out of 10 but it appears that CVG is not the only one giving this game praise, with sites The Escapist, Eurogamer, Polygon among a few of the critics to submit their(all positive) reviews of the game and with all well justified reviews of why the game is simply spectacular and a must play for any fans of the genre in specific. While the game is yet to be released it’s safe to say that this will definitely be a very good contender for multiplatform Game of the Year. (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not really sure how this is below 90% on metacritic. Nearly all the scores I have seen have been 9?10 or higher. Must be their selection process at work again.

This game HAS to score better than Resident Evil 6. It deserves all the thunder. don't let Shadycritic get you down. They pander to special interests.

@bum..cake....

I think it must be. If you were here (n4g) last year September, you would notice that Resistance 3 and Gears of War 3, had page after page of 10/10, rarely you would see anything less. So I'd assume they would have a 99 on META.

It happens for every game, not just Res 3, just was scratching my head at the time.

Funny thing is, more 10/10 scores are disregarded than trolling 3/10 scores. Sadly, there is no perfect way to rectify this, as it is someones 'opinion'. No matter how dumb you are, you're still entitled to an opinion. apparently.

Metacritic holds no weight, especially nowadays. The site is riddled with fanboy sites giving perfect scores to not so perfect games.

Be your own reviewer.

catching up to xcoms 89

The title is wrong. Dishonored is sitting at an 89 for 360 and a 91 for PC on Metacritc. Either way, that's DAMN good for a new IP.

Suprised with Xcom. Getting both Dishonored and Xcom.

Nice to see reviewers are supporting a new IP and a reboot of an old franchise. Sadly, these days you have to be a sequel to get any attention. Good to see I was proven wrong (At least in this instance).

Geez, who disagreed with your opinion? You stated a compliment, commented on how the game isn't your cup of tea, congratulated the companies, yet someone doesn't like that? I love how you can have a wrong opinion just for not liking a style of game apparently.

I'm with you. The game isn't my style, but I think all the positive review speak volumes for the importance of new IPs instead of all the sequels we see these days.
