Dishonored - Stealth action at it finest
Dishonored is a stealth assassin game released for consoles in 2012. Developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Dishonored was released worldwide for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Microsoft. The game takes place in the fictional city of Dunwall, a plague ridden city in the midst of a violent takeover. You play the role of Corvo Attano, the Empress's infamous bodygaurd.

It starts with Corvo returning to Dunwall after a diplomatic mission to the other great cities, asking for help to cure the plague that has devastated Dunwall. You return empty handed. No one knows how to cure the plague. When you report this dire news to the Empress, she is attacked by assassins who have mysterious powers. You manage to kill most of them, but in the end, you are subdued by magic and the Empress is killed and her daughter is taken. You, Corvo, are left behind, framed for the murder of the Empress.

After a few months in a jail cell, just days before your execution, you are helped to escape by a group of people calling themselves the Loyalists. They want your help proving that it was really the Lord Regent (now in control of Dunwall) who had the Empress killed. You make your escape from prison and meet the Loyalists, who are htere to help you along the way. You also meet a mythical deity called the Outsider. He is a Loki-like character who could just as easily be bad as good, but he imbues you with powers that help you. He intentions are ambiguous, but it seems like he just wants to see what you do with these powers.

Dishonored is a game all about personal choice. Your missions can all be accomplished in a wide variety of ways. You can fight your way through your enemies, leaving death and chaos in your wake, or you stealth through the city, avoiding conflict. Every mission can be completed without fatalities, and indeed without even being seen. That is very hard to do. The storyline changes depending on how much chaos you create. I played the game through on it's hardest setting, and killed as many people as I could in every level. By the time I got to the final stage, the entire city of Dunwall was on high alert and extra guards were on the lookout for me. This made it pretty much impossible to be sneaky at that point. It also made some of my Loyalist friends turn their back on me. They didn't agree with the massacre I was doing. So, I killed them all.

This is a really awesome game with a lot of replay value. My next goal is to make a total stealth run. The city of Dunwall is a really intricate world with a perfect blend of technology and magic. There is just enough item collecting to keep you exploring, without being the main focus or detracting from the gameplay. The storyline is a little bit predictable, but the voice acting is really good. They used some pretty big name actors in this game, including Susan Sarandin, Carrie Fisher and Michael Madsen. All in all, this is a fantastic game, and you can see why it won multiple awards, including best action/adventure game of 2012.
