This week I have been spending time with Dishonored, the latest game from Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Arkane have been around since 1999 and are known for their work on the design, animation and art of the very successful BioShock 2.
Dishonored launched earlier this month for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC but for the purpose of this review we will be taking a look at the PC edition that is available on Steam.
There are no shortage of FPS games on the market today, in fact there hasn’t been a shortage of them for a very long time now. With so many games being a near copy/paste of the last one, yearly updates to the popular ones or just blatant rip-offs of last years best seller. As much as I love a great FPS game, the genre can be a little tiresome and repetitive at the best of times. But can Dishonored break this habit and bring something new to the mix?
Dishonored caught my attention because it’s a new IP, that means it’s not a sequel, its not a prequel it’s not got a number after its name and it’s a whole new world of places and people to explore, which as a keen gamer, is an experience I desire the most from my games.
So come and take a look at the next few pages where I dive into the dark and highly stylised steam punk city of Dunwall.
