Dishonored - PC

Dishonored explodes off the screen with high production values and lavish detail as you explore the fictitious city of Dunwall after being framed for assassinating the Empress and kidnapping her daughter. The player controls Corvo, an assassin who gains magical skills that enable him to warp, or "blink" around the city, slow time, possess people and summon flesh eating rats. Flesh eating rats are the new flame thrower!!

I meant to rate it a 5/5, because this game is among my favorites' list.

The overall experience I got from the game was amazing. The gameplay is brilliant, I like how you have the option to play the game in multiple ways, though it has repercussions to the ending, which gives you a bit of replay value to play through both ending as well as collecting items. The art design and visuals are very well done and just remarkable. The story, plot, atmosphere and voice acting are probably the most memorable thing for me, which were done very well. One of my favorites games.

I played this game being stealthy (I knew because of other reviews of the different endings which depended on how you played the game), and I barely used any power or weapon aside from the Blink and the Knife, so I missed a lot of fun, just for the sake of getting the good ending. This major flaw was detrimental to the fantastic art design, good acting and gloomy atmosphere of the game. The side quests added a lot of fun, but suffered from the same storyplay limitations.

Excellent level design with lots of vertical elements. Uncovering all the pathways through the level and figuring out the multiple ways I could accomplish each mission were half the fun for me. The game is short but rewarding. Whether or play lethal or non-lethal determines the ending you receive. There are not enough options for playing non-lethal outside of choking and tranq darts and too many for lethal styles. Have not played the SP DLC but hear it is excellent.

A very polished, well-designed 1st person stealth adventure game that gives the player many action oriented options. Stealth gameplay seems more fleshed out and a strong point of the title, as is the ability to "blink" or teleport. The setting is a nice combination of bizarre and believable, and the political intrigue that drives the plot is interesting. For me it was similar to a puzzle adventure game, in that first discovering routes and tricks was fantastic, but replay value wasn't there.

Dishonored's strong points come from the excellent world and character design knit together with great stealth and exploration elements. Despite its predictable plot / twist and special ability mechanics plucked straight from titles like Bioshock, this is still an enjoyable title (perhaps in part due to these similarities).

Dishonored is a great stealth-action and adventured based video game. The story of the game is very interesting. Missions within the game can be completed through stealth, combat or even as a combination of both; which is a very fun aspect that the game offers to the player. Also, the exploration and many other aspects are great too. I highly recommend it to those who haven't played it as of yet :)

I meant to give Dishonored a 5/5. I will rate it again.

 Dragster - Atari 2600
"When I first played this game I hated it. It's way too easy to blow your engine. Once I got the controls down, I became obsessed with lowering my time. It's a fun game to play, if you have the patience for it." - qix1

 Power Blade - NES
"Power Blade is an awesome game and a must have for NES collectors! You play as a bad ass dude with a boomerang style blade that you can power up and kick some ass with! Even with unlimited continues the game may seem hard at first but the key is to find a safe spot to re-spawn enemies so you can maximize your power blade and regenerate health. Each stage which you can play in orders has 2 objectives. The first one is to find a key card, then you have to reach the door which contains the boss." - Truxton4life

 Transformers: The Game - Wii
"The Wii version is yet another PS2 port, with waggle. But you'll be hard pressed to find a port of this game that is any good. That goes for all systems." - sherberttcat

 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Wii
"Its the EXACT same game as the PS2 version, but they had the audacity to blatantly lie, and say that it was made with the Wii in mind. You can tell this is a lie, because the PS2's package says the exact same thing about it being built with the PS2 in mind." - sherberttcat

 Transformers: Prime – The Game - Wii
"The Wii didn't get a proper "War for/Fall of Cybertron" game. But Transformers Prime does a GREAT job of filling that hole! The writers and entire voice cast of the TV show are here, and the game play really plays well to the strengths of the Wii remote and Nunchuck." - sherberttcat
