Dishonored 2 Review

One of the most anticipated titles for this month is Bethesda?s sequel to the 2013 classic, Dishonored. Dishonored 2 brings a lot of new features and innovations to the series and is expected to once again wow fans. A few people already have an early copy of the game, and reviews are now on the way. Here?s a glimpse at the Dishonored 2 review to prepare ourselves for the game launching later this month.


From the get-go, one of the best things about about Dishonored is the new areas. Karnaca varies greatly from Dunwall, and Dishonored 2 reviewers are praising the vertical size of the areas that give players more room for action and fun with The Outsider?s abilities in tow. IGN notes that Arkane Studios did good in level design as the different areas offer varying experiences to them.

For example, the Addamire Institute is a horrific area with a Victorian theme. Despite this, the area is easily traversed. On the other hand, the Clockwork Mansion functions as a huge puzzle of some sorts as players will have to use switches to change the layout of the area.

Another praise-worthy feature of the game are the two characters themselves. Both Corvo and Emily have different skill sets and offer up players a chance to relive different gameplay experiences. It also opens up the possibility of multiple playthroughs.


The game has its downsides as well of course. Some Dishonored 2 review pieces are commenting on how players will have to struggle in getting Runes in the early parts of the game. Runes are used to upgrade the powers of Corvo and Emily and are very important in the overall progress of the game.

Most of the time, Runes are surrounded by NPCs and they?re pretty hard to get through. This is very troublesome as players have little access to the best skill upgrades early in the game. It could be extremely tough ending the game with the very low-chaos ending.
