Dishonored appears to have had phrases like “potential Game of the Year” and “Once in a generation” levelled at it consistently over the past few months. Does Arkane’s stealth action title deserve such praise? Of has the hype machine been in full swing? Dishonored places you in the shoes of Corvo. The once revered protector to the Empress who now must fight to clear his name of her assassination. After a daring prison escape Corvo finds himself located in Dunwall, a grubby looking port city. There he joins with the growing Loyalists resistance against the newly appointed ruler. A ruler who just happens to have been the instigator of the Empresses murder. Corvo is out for revenge and redemption.
