5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough that it has changed my perception of certain game types, October 28, 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dishonored Greatest Hits - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
To me, Dishonored is a good enough game, that it has changed my perception of certain game types.
I have never gotten into stealth type games, but many times while playing Dishonored I have found myself using stealth tactics and loving it. There are so many different ways to attack each mission and while I'm only a little more than halfway through the game, I already look forward to playing the game again to attack missions in different ways. I've read about three different upcoming downloads that will add new missions and gameplay. Considering how much fun I have had with the game so far, I will buy this added material as soon as it is available (first I heard was in December). The action and story are even interesting enough that my girlfriend enjoys watching it each time I play.
I agree with people that the game somewhat contradicts itself in that it encourages peaceful tactics for the "good" ending, yet some of the super powers and weapons are geared towards chaos or actual killing. Even though I am using some stealth tactics, I have killed plenty and am currently in high chaos standing. The next time I play, I'll try for the peaceful, low chaos game style to see the story and ending unfold from that method.
The game can be very difficult at parts, especially going about undetected and not killing anyone, but like I've said, there are so many ways to tackle each mission. Trying different methods enables some surprise and pleasure with how many different ways you can accomplish things.
Many people have commented on the length of the game, calling it too short. I have played the game for about an hour a day, so about 10 hours so far, and as I mentioned, I'm only a little more than halfway through. So I expect to get about 20 hours on the first playthrough which is very good to me. I am normally picky about games, and have never gotten too much into stealth games, but this game has surprised me in that it has made me look forward to not just shooting my way through the game, but sneaking and utilizing different tactics throughout the game. I'm happy with the graphics and sound, but most importantly, the gameplay. Gameplay is always the most important thing in a game, and I feel that with the amazing variety of ways in going about the game, the gameplay here is incredible. I very highly recommend this game to anyone.
UPDATE: I just finished solving it a second time, and unlike the first time where I solved it with a violent approach, I used a passive, mostly stealth approach this time. I loved both ways, though the stealth approach is definitely more challenging. As I mentioned earlier, the game can be challenging, but in a fun and fair way. Just save often, since when you die, you go back to your last save. This is one of the few games I think is fully worth its original new price, and now that it is going for about half that, anyone that hasn't purchased this yet should do so ASAP. I've been playing games for over 30 years now, and this truly has given me some of the best game play experiences ever.
