As someone who hated the unforgivable AI of Deus Ex. I must say that the balance between awarding stealth and penalizing the player for aggression is well kept in Dishonored. It allows players to explore the world easily with great mechanics, but falls short by lacking hard hitting story beats or set pieces that would have propelled it to GOTY status. Not taking that last sentence lightly, I predict this will be on many peoples list for GOTY, just not at the top. The combat is smooth and realist...
The story in this game is fantastic. There is a great twist at the end that almost begs you to play it again to see if you could have a different outcome. The game play itself is a little flat. As a unreal engine third person shooter this just feels like Gears light.

Assuming they release patches that extend the story as happened in the First Infinity Blade this will eventually be perfect...While it does end on a nice cliff hanger it doesn't have the same "victorious, but over what??" sentiment that gave the first game nice closure. My only gripes are that heavy weapons are so much hard...
The bad thing about being the first mover in the game of the year conversation is that this masterpiece maybe forgotten in the fodder that is the renaissance of releases for Q4 2011. A game I spent a mere weekend with, needs to be praised for turning an essentially formulaic iterative sequel into an instant classic. You feel like Batman. Moving aroud the city is easy. The combat is simple but satisfying. The villains are varied without overkill. The story is classic but compellingly fresh. Not e...
