Review: Dishonored’s originality falls short of making a good game great | Globe and Mail

Globe and Mail: "In an era of never-ending sequels, it’s tempting to greet an entirely new video game with the kind of zealous overenthusiasm that inflates the mediocre to good and the good to great.

I fear some of the early glowing reviews of Dishonored , the new stealth game from Bethesda, may fall into this trap." (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7/10

finally an honest review. It's a good game and I picked it up on launch day, but it's neither original nor groundbreaking.

It IS original, though I don't think many people are even claiming that the game is "groundbreaking" in the first place.

It wears it's influences on it's shoulder, but the setting is unique and interesting enough to set the game FAR apart from the space/military shooters so popular these days. Nevermind the fact that the stealth mechanics are some of the best and most entertaining you can find in a game.

I suppose it depends on your criteria for what makes a "great" game. Personally, evolution to me can be every bit as exciting as revolution sometimes.
