Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall | Review (Only Single Player)

"I tell ya, nobody loved Dishonored more than me. Well ok, I suppose the fellow over there with the Corvo bedsheets and rubber mask did, as well as the people who actually got the platinum trophy… ok, I suppose I just really liked Dishonored. For good reason, though; it was an incredibly flexible game, allowing players to get creative and express themselves via a robust set of mechanics, and it was atmospheric and nicely stylized to boot. Its only major drawback was a weak story, one with drab characters and a protagonist whom Arkane Studios couldn’t decide on being a vehicle for players to project onto or a traditionally likable hero in a revenge story.

Fast forward to today, when the first story-focused downloadable content for the game has been released. Titled Knife of Dunwall, the DLC stars Daud, the guilt-ridden assassin who killed the Empress and essentially sparked Corvo’s journey. Does this add-on continue to provide stealthy and supernatural fun, or is this knife duller than advertised? Let’s find out." (Michael Urban, OnlySP.com) (Dishonored, Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10
