"Dishonored is a game that I had been eagerly anticipating for some time now. After a few trailers depicting the gameplay, I became interested to say the least. Not because it was an original IP being released in the midst of samey AAA sequels (though that was a definite plus) but because the game seemed to offer an intensely organic sense of exploration and experimentation. On top of this, the gameplay seemed to have traces of both Thief and Deus Ex which excited me greatly. Did the game live up to my expectations?"
