This is foremost a stealth and infiltration game. While you play an assassin, you can go the entire game without killing anyone (provided the game lets you, but more on that later), and the game is best played that way, as the less you kill, the more benefits you see. Unlike games like Deus Ex, for which there are ups and downs for whichever route you choose, Dishonored makes it pretty clear that not only you'll be better rewarded by not killing, but that killing is actually detrimental to your enjoyment. So, while the game appears to offer you a choice, it really wants you to play it one way.
You do have more of a choice when it comes to exploring the world and which different paths you can choose to reach certain places, but the way the world is set, you'll probably end up exploring all paths anyway, if you're looking for hidden items. And you will be, since you'll need them. Besides having a trusty sword, pistol and crossbow, Corvo is capable of magical powers and abilities, which are obtained by collecting runes and charms hidden all over the game's world. The more you collect, the more proficient and versatile he becomes, getting to choose between powers that benefit either the lethal or non-lethal route (or both).
One thing that's easy no notice about the game is its very particular art style. Characters and places are drawn not in a realistic fashion, but in a sort-of-cartoonish look that makes the game seem like a living painting. It's an attractive look, to be sure, and it makes the game stand out between its previously mentioned peers. That being said, this particular approach to the visual style ends up suffering a bit through this edition, since the resolution has been upgraded but the textures haven't.
See, Dishonored was previously released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in the year 2012. About a year later, the GOTY edition was released, which included all the DLC for the game. This "Definitive Edition" is no better than the GOTY one in practically anything, the only difference being the aforementioned upgraded resolution. That's literally the only difference, the textures are the same, the fps are the same (30), there are no extras to speak of, and on certain TVs you'll notice no difference AT ALL between this version and the previous gen one.
Worst of all, they haven't even made an effort to correct any of the numerous bugs the original game had. Remember when I said you could go the full game without killing anyone? Well, that strictly depends on the game not suddenly deciding that one of the people you knocked out should die for no reason. And it WILL do it, forcing you to replay the entire mission if you intend to go for a no-killing playthrough. When you reload a saved game, the game will load characters before walls, which will propel patrolling enemies to see their knocked out friends despite them being hidden, so you have to be very careful while saving and reloading, or else your careful planning will be all for nothing. Plus, knocked out characters have a tendency to randomly dissapear, which can throw a wrench into your plans.
So, if you played the previous gen version there's no reason to get this one unless it's on sale for really cheap AND you have only played the base game and not the DLC. If you played the GOTY version, there's literally zero reason to get this one, as the only improvement made is either imperceptible or even counterproductive.
Stealth elements with a solid story and great gameplay, make for a good purchase considering the price.
Also 2nd game is just around the corner so it's a great time to jump on board the series.
