    HIGHLY ADDICTIVE IMMERSIVE GAMECHANGER! 10/10!!

    Dishonored 2 on the PS4 Pro, with a 4K display is absolute visual gratification! A shoutout to The Infamous series of PS4 games where you choose how you want to play the game and where the story will take you, along with open world and character selection it's an Inventive cross between Assissins Creed and Infamous game series accept you get to choose your character which hasn't been done accept for the latest AC installment Syndicate you can swap back and forth between a brother sister duo in the streets of London during the rise of the Industrial period. But Dishonored 2 is flat out gorgeous with an enthralling storyline involving an imaginative world and an exhiled Empress and her trusted Royal Protector (you get to play as either character) and play as you see fit... to regain your thrown and let your subjects know you're alive and fighting for their prosperity. I love games with a gripping storyline to which you set the stage with your actions. I've made comparisons to other Award Winning PS4 titles of the past but Dishonored 2 truly is a must play if you liked either of the afore mentioned series or any Action/RpG/Shooter for that matter. This game was developed with masterful imagery, story, and imagination, executed with precision. I love shooters and action/rpg games and my favorite characters to you are usually an agile warlock/mage gunslinger and that's exactly what you get. So if you love a gripping storyline, in game "free-will", magic, mystery, and the choice to execute your ever-changing quests with stealthlike precision from the shadows, putting the fear of god into your oppressors with your mags-like powers and precision weaponry letting all know who's boss and your coming for your throne! Strike Fear into your enemy from the open for all to see and fear or become a ghost and strike only when the moment is right.... I make the moment right it's more fun that way! But you can play the game both ways half in the shadows and half in the open, have your people fear you or aid you... either way you're coming for your throne in the most imaginative, enthralling gameplay in its genre just check the PSN store it's one of the very few games that critics and gamers alike have bestowed the honor of not just award winning, but a must play and fully uses PS4 Pro's enhanced gaming capabilities both embracing the full power of the Upgraded CPU and GPU processors in the Pro. So get off the beaten path littered with shooters and action games that have little to no storyline or character interaction to pull you in and get you excited to play the storyline in games anymore. Next-Gen gaming got off the path of creating immersive storylines for a while but the release of the upgraded systems is pushing developers to take their time and build a game to the consoles full capabilities and the true roots of gaming, Arcane studios got the ball rolling and finally major developers are taking their time and following in their footsteps to create beautiful immersive gameplay that you want to explore every nook and cranny of the ever changing storyline that you the player are in control of... that is what Next Gen gaming is about... using these powerful consoles to create storylines that make you come back for more not because you want to level up or grind for loot but because you actually want to see where you can go and what you can do next.. the decision is yours and if you can't tell by this massive review...Dishonored 2 blows the lid off its predecessor which was and still is (especially the remastered version included for digital download via PSN code in the Dishonored 2 Limited Edition version)... Hands down of the best games in its class and top tier for us PS4 Pro owners who get to experience this gem in all its immersive open-world, blaze your own path back to YOUR throne... use all your Arkansas powers, unique weapons and gadgets with Dishonored 2's brutally fun and extremely imaginative gameplay/combat system. 10/10 for sure! You don't win multiple BEST OF E3 awards for lackluster gameplay... simply awe inspiring!

    More of the same

    A worthy follow up sequel to the original Dishonored. If you didn't like the previous game, this won't change your mind. Stealth is still the focus here though technically you don't have to play it that way. Nevertheless, the game gives you lots of power to lethally take out your enemies(high chaos), but the game rewards you more when you take them out non-lethally (low chaos). New is the ability to choose between Emily or Corvo as your playable characters. They have different set of powers, which make them play differently. Story doesn't change much aside from so dialogue. Nevertheless, the story feels more suited for Emily given her personal stakes, while Corvo feels more like a character that should have been unlockable after finishing the game with her. That said, the story isn't the greatest. It has a great start with Emily's Aunt Delilah usurping the throne and launching a coup d 'etat, which forces you to choose between Emily or Corvo to play as (the character not selected is turned into stone). Afterwards, the story just never really goes anywhere other than giving you reasons to assassinate(or non-lethally remove) some people. You can read more about the game's lore through text and newspapers within the game, but it's not really a organic way of telling the story. The game has a decent length of around 15 hours or so though with me taking a stealthy non-lethal approach.

    My personal pick for best game of the year so far.

    I loved the first game. I thought it was the best game of the year in 2011. I feel that Dishonored 2 is even better than the first and is so far the best game I played in 2016. First of all, the level design and mechanics are much more dynamic and innovative, some of them are amazing in creativity and allows for numerous ways to get past certain obstacles or goals. The replayability of this game is immediately higher than the first as well, because from the outset you can choose to either play as Emily or Corvo. I think a lot of people would want to play one in a stealthy way and then in another playthrough, play the other character in a more aggressive, high chaos manner. The only quibble is that the story is not so amazing, its about on par with the first game, with the Witches of Brigmore DLC probably having the best story out of the three. Overall, this game feels close enough to the first one and everything that it did right, but also added enough differences and nuances that improved on it in numerous ways. My pick for best game of the year.

    An excellent sequel

    First off, if you buy the Limited Edition you get the Definitive Edition of the first game for free which makes Dishonored 2 an absolute steal even at full price. The Definitive edition of Dishonored 1 includes all the DLC for that game in one excellent package. As for Dishonored 2, if you didn't like the first game you might not like this one either since it plays and feels a lot like the first game but with marked improvements in most areas. The story begins in largely the same way, your main character ends up being 'dishonored' in some way and so begins your quest to clear your name and set things right. Like in the first game, you can play the game stealthily or not, you can kill everyone in sight or spare every soul you come across. It is entirely up to you. The main targets can all be taken out non lethally and having two main characters with unique powers to each (you can also play without powers if you choose) adds to this game's replayability. This is a well crafted game that values player choice and I highly recommend it!

    Bought this one here online and picked it up in-store, they gave me a regular one, NOT LIMITED, which means you won't be getting the first Dishonored game DLC. The manager opened it up in-front of me and insisted that it was the one that I bought, exact same thing just different on the outside, tried to manipulate me and made me feel that I dont know what I was buying. But NO, it did not have the 1st game DLC which was supposed to come with the LIMITED EDITION. They had the same SKU, so beware if you're buying, especially if you're picking up in East San Jose CA. Only ONE STAR because of this bad experience. Having read reviews from different sites, this could have easily been a five star.

    Great Tools and Story

    I came in for a unique story and loved that this package included both games. I will focus on the 2nd iteration. It did not impress on the presentation and graphics, which was disappointing due to the initial promo reels. I also thought the pickup and selection menus are more accessible to PC players than to console players. Unless you are right on the correct area the button prompts do not appear which gets frustrating initially. Finally after getting past the older style controls, the tools and stealth components were really cool. Also the difficulty was fair enough and better balanced than alot of other games these days. I appreciated the challenge and reward. Soon you can forget about the constant audio log searches and rune pickups and just focus on the mission at hand. It is worth checking out just temper your expectations.

    The game is great, I really enjoy it. I tend to be an achievement hunter, and don't feel exhausted by playing through this game a few times. I played the first one and DLC and really enjoyed it, saw this on sale and wasn't disappointed. My criticisms of the game are that it gets overwhelming quickly with powers. I don't need 20 different powers although it can certainly alter game play drastically. I personally didn't really like being able to play as both characters, but think it is a cool feature for most people. I haven't experienced the bugs that people have talked about, but it has froze up on me once, but not again since. If you are playing with a surround sound setup, you might hear 3+ conversations simultaneously, which can be a big frustration and hard to track; but it is very helpful doing a no power stealth run.

    Few hours in the game, it's everything you love about dishonored 1 and better. The combat is great and graphics are amazing, game's very simple yet complex in a very understanding way. I love splinter cell, dishonored, anything that does stealth right. You can beat the game without killing anyone and when it comes to powers.. upgrades.. the categories have sub categories and there's so many possibilities. Its almost endless, you have lots of options in everything. No two people will have a similar game play experience because of the variety of options. It's just a great game, I dont see why anyone who enjoys sneaking by enemies, pick pocketing keys, hiding in shadow would not like this game. I'm glad how most of the story wasn't spoiled much in the trailers/gameplay videos.

    Wow! I am so impressed with this game because the gameplay mechanics are amazing! The first Dishonored game was only scratching the surface and was borderline eerie but the second installment of the series delivers. Don't worry about people who complain about stealth. You have the option of playing however you choose.. just be prepared for the consequences. There are so may ways to get to your objectives that it blows your mind. The upgrades of power and gear is genius and perfection. If you are still skeptical... just look at all the awards they got. Based on your gameplay the outcome varies. Every level is different, entertaining and challenging. It It is everything you want a game to be and more.. Well done Bethesda!

    A clear step up from its predecessor

    A clear step up from its predecessor. Although I highly enjoyed Dishonored 1, the sequel felt richer and more thought out. Karnaca is a much more interesting locale than Dunwall and each level was meticulously crafted for any play style. The greatest improvement was the addition of Emily as a playable character. While you'll find some overlap with her father, Emily's powers are distinct and highly addictive over Corvo's. Highly recommend for any player looking for a varied play style game and if you've never played the first, the limited edition comes with a digital copy. So you have no excuses whether you should pick this up or not.

    Dishonored 2 is worth the $ due to replayability

    I liked the various power abilities, but I feel some of them are more for show than practical abilities - shadow walk specifically. The visuals were pleasing. Colorful surroundings for some maps but dreary in others. Game has more or less open maps - though small, so it is not linear and it begs a replay so try assault and stealth styles in how you play each section. Game became more fun to play as your abilities opened up. I did not get much out of interacting with the characters on the home ship. You can play as Corvo or Emily which is cool. If you like the aesthetic and gameplay of Deux Ex, you will like Dishonored 2.

    Dishonored 1 was a legendary game but 2 made it even better. I haven't completed it yet but so far it's been awesome. It's almost impossible to knock out someone in 1 and the only way is to go stealthy this got me super frustrated but 2 made it easier by blocking and silencing them. 2 is also different as u have 2 playable characters but I would have loved it even more to have opportunity to play both characters in single play through( from their perspective somehow). But nevertheless it's fantastic. The graphics, gameplay, skills everything has been superb! Must have game for the holiday

    A Worthwhile Return to Dunwall

    I really enjoyed the original Dishonored and this game follows in the footsteps of its predecessor while improving in many areas. While it keeps the same style as Dishonored, it graphically looks far superior (which it should). Controls, magic, stealth, and action are all solid. And having two different characters to play through the game with definitely adds a high amount of replay value. There are also large selection of challenging trophies to keep you occupied as well. If you like first person action adventure games, definitely give this one a go, you won't be disappointed!

    This game starts out where the last one left off, but about 10 years later. You can choose to play as Corvo(who you played as in the first game) or his daughter. The game play is very fun and you can either be very stealthy or go about taking out everyone with lethal force. The ability to upgrade equipment and skills is spot on and depending on which character you play as determines what skills you will possess and possible how you will need to play the game. Overall had a lot of fun during the play through and with the different possible endings allows for several play throughs.

    Overall this game was good, and you will like it if you played the first one. It has similar mechanics and the story allows you to play as two different protagonist. What I really liked about the game, is the option to refuse to have powers. It challenges you to be more creative, and it makes the game more fun, in my opinion. It is rather short, and more of the same as the first one. If you can get it under $20, it is definitely worth a play through.

    I have just finished putting a couple of hours into the game and I really like it, obviously I bought it, but I wasn't sure how it was going to be. It lives up to the high ratings that it received on the review sites. This time around there is a lot more freedom to accomplish objectives. Combat is a little more varied and of course so are the stealth options. The first dishonored was good but I felt it had some linear qualities to it. This dishonored truly feels more open world and fleshed out. If a combination stealth/combat game sounds good, then this game is for you.

    This game is truly amazing and I really love the story. This game allows you to play it how you want to and approach things differently whether that be using stealth to not get caught or to kill everyone. Coupled with the powers you can gain and the game becomes really interesting in what you can do. Its a first person view and your allowed to select between Emily or Corvo. Corvo has the same abilities from the 1st game while Emily, a new character whom you can play as, has completely different skills. Highly recommend this game for those that love stealth games.

    Being a big fan of the first game, I had high hopes here. I wasn't disappointed per se, and in most ways this game lives up to the quality of the first, but I wouldn't say it's quite as good for me. Where the first had more of an open world feeling, this one seems more linear, though there are still many nooks and secrets to be discovered. That said, it makes up for it with more interesting set of nps and two very different characters to play as. All in all I'd say it's a buy if you're a fan of the original.

    This is one of the best games of this generation...the environment is so detailed and beautiful it really makes the world come to life. One of the best aspects of this game are all the different paths there are to get to your location and all the different choices you have to deal with any situation that you encounter. Whether you're going full stealth or all out carnage or even some where in between this games got you covered. I'm enjoying it so much I can barely put it down.

    Though I loved the original game, I was a little underwhelmed with Dishonored 2, especially on my first run through of it. An interesting world and great art direction, but the game felt a bit sluggish and "rough", for lack of a particular problem... Having played it through twice now though (once without a single murder, then leaving no one alive...) the possibilities and depth of the environments opens up, and I look forward to maybe revisiting the game should some solid DLC come out.
