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.

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker

 Guitar Hero - PlayStation 2
"The game that started the music video game and plastic musical instrument controller craze. There is quite a good selection of music, with Crossroads being my favorite, and the gameplay is smooth and satisfying. There are different difficulties so anyone can pick it up and play and when you nail a solo on expert difficulty it is quite a good feeling. I've been playing guitar for over 10 years and while I can already play the songs in the game in real life, it is still a damn fun time." - Parker

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"The game is pretty fun to play simply because it is on the Vectrex but once that wears off the game really isn't that great. The overlay looks pretty nice though." - Parker

 The Tomb Raider Trilogy - PlayStation 3
"A great trilogy release for the PS3. And I always make Lara leap to her death. It's a wonder I ever completed them when I kept doing that." - scarecrowchan

 Rock Revolution - Nintendo DS
"Considering the fact that I hardly enjoyed Activision's effort at bringing the Guitar Hero franchise to the DS a few years back, there's no way I would be able to tolerate Rock Revolution. It looks like a half-assed attempt at best. At least with Guitar Hero DS you would have the button attachment and even though it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, it still functioned well enough. Who in their right mind would want to tap and swipe music notes, it looks boring and repetitive." - mikamifan92
