    If you enjoyed the first game but felt it was missing something this game has improved (IMO)on all the faults of the first one. Thought the AI for the guards was too dumb - Good news! They now will look above and under everything to find you. Not enough options for a no kill run? Good news! All of their powers have an alternate non lethal option. Thought the enemies were too basic and all did the same thing - good news! They have added different obstacles, new enemy types and again the enemies are a lot more self aware (remove a whale tank, they are going to notice, you better hide quickly!) Fighting was too basic, if you successfully parry an attack you can grab them and choke them instead of killing them. You have the possibility of at least 4 different endings which greatly increases the playability. Finally, they will be adding as a free update sometime in December a new game plus mode and more difficulty options. *Note - If you did not like the first one because of its style (steampunk) or morality system, this game probably isn't for you.

    Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2 - this Fall’s #1 rated game on Metacritic*. Praised by IGN as “amazing” and “a superb sequel”, declared a “masterpiece” by Eurogamer, and hailed “a must-play revenge tale among the best in its class” by Game Informer, Dishonored 2 is the follow up to Arkane Studio's first-person action blockbuster and winner of more than 100 'Game of the Year' awards, Dishonored. Play your way in a world where mysticism and industry collide. Will you choose to play as Empress Emily Kaldwin or the royal protector, Corvo Attano? Will you make your way through the game unseen, make full use of its brutal combat system, or use a blend of both? How will you combine your character's unique set of powers, weapons and gadgets to eliminate your enemies?

    I played Dishonored one, which was an astounding game, they managed to create the feel of an open, living world, in a game that was actually white linear. Number two, did the same. My only real gripes, have to be, that one: there's no real reason to have played one before two. I as well as many other people were hoping to see resounding effects from choice made in one, carry over to two, (much like you would see in the first three mass effects). And two; there feels a lacking in the world of character development, which is felt even moreso, if you were to play Dishonored two, without playing one. Overall a very solid game, but for the sake of character development (and you understanding of how they got to where they are) I would greatly recommend playing one, before two.

    This is my favorite game of 2016. Such a unique game that mixes the best parts of BioShock and Thief. It's in open ended first person story driven action adventure RPG game. The voice acting, story and level design are top-notch with unique and well thought out areas to explore. The first game was amazing and this game is a perfect follow-up. There are so many powers to explore with 2 different characters to play as, each one with their own set of abilities. This game can be played entirely in stealth if your skills are that good. Mine aren't but that doesn't stop me from having a blast with this game. Easily one of the best games this generation. Can't wait for the next iteration.

    I didn't ever play the original Dishonored, so seeing both the sequel and the enhanced version of the original for $60 (minus 20% for Gamer's Club) was too good to pass up. The games themselves, though, are... Just alright. The animations and textures seem very last-gen even in the sequel, the acting and storytelling aren't that great, and I've encountered game breaking bugs three different times. That said, it's still a decent entry in the stealth action genre. It has good music, unique powers and solid environment design. Plus, for completionists, it has multiple ways to play, offering you at least six playthroughs over two games if you want to experience the bare minimum of ways to play.

    I never played the first game, however there is a code for Xbox users to download and play the 1st game for free which is great, but there is sufficient enough story that you can play the second without deep knowledge of the 1st. At first I found this game to be a bit difficult, but then as I got better, and smarter about my gameplay approach things got better. Game is a lot of fun, for more mature audiences, and the story is pretty engaging and keeps things moving along nicely. The graphics are good, but nothing super spectacular, however graphics alone do not make a game. If you like smarter FPS type games with stealth then you will love this game.

    Great GAMES, ...BUT BUYER BEWARE: I went to a local Best Buy to buy this game but ended up on buying a non-Limit Edition game (without the extra game) for the same price as this limited edition one, which they don't even sell (the non-Limited Edition one without the extra game) on their website but sell it in stores. One of the employees (may have been a manger) there at the store found that weird especially since when they scanned it the computer showed it as the same exact thing when I went to exchange it. Make sure it says Limited Edition and has the picture of the original game on the bottom right corner of the box.

    I've been looking forward to the release of this game for a while. It looked great from gameplay videos; however, after playing it on the Xbox One S, I was utterly disappointed by the performance issues this game suffers from--it doesn't run smoothly. It suffers from frame rate drops. The graphics for the Xbox One are blurry compared the the PC and PS4 (I was very upset when I learned this). The game looks ugly at times. All of these maladies take away from the enjoyment and playability from the game. I really hope patches will be released soon to remedy this, but until then, it's so irksome that it's unplayable, at least for me.
