Dishonored: Definitive Edition
Top Critic Average
The gaming landscape has certainly changed since Dishonored was released in 2012, but the advent of the current generation of home consoles has done nothing to diminish its strengths. Dishonored remains an enthralling mix of first-person stealth action, supernatural special powers and a timeless painterly aesthetic. Thrust into the centre of a diabolical plot, out for revenge, Dishonored gives players the freedom to play the game their way – whether that be good or bad, lethal or non-lethal – and to see the game world shaped by your actions.
Bethesda und Arkane Studios liefern mit der Definitive Edition von Dishonored eine solide Leistung. Grafisch wurden zwar keine neuen Maßstäbe gesetzt, aber ansonsten bekommt ihr hier den gesamten Dishonored Content, den es aktuell gibt auf einer Disk und mit einer soliden technischen Performance. Man hätte zwar noch endlich die englische Sprachausgabe inkludieren können, aber Dishonored Fans, werden auch das wohl verkfraften können.

Dishonored is still a great game nearly a decade later. This stealth-action game will go down in the history books as one of the best games in the genre and put Arkane Studios on the map as one of the world's best developers.
It's also not a bad time to get all caught up, what with Dishonored 2 on the horizon (which is what I'm sure Bethesda intended by re-releasing the original). You may want to take a pass if frame rate is an issue for you, as the game is locked at 30 fps, but overall it's a decent game with a great price on its polished new look.
'Dishonored' has received a minimal amount of dress-up for this re-release. In 'Dishonored Definitive Edition,' the main game is all here with its DLC and a light visual touch-up, and that's about it. The price is also high when compared against the last-gen (or PC) GOTY versions. Still, it was one of the most captivating games of last gen, and a must-own for any Xbox One owners who have not experienced it. For those who have, you'll find little of interest here.
Dishonored: Definitive Edition is the complete package of a fantastic game. Prepare to stalk the streets of Dunwall in a satisfying tale of revenge.
Fans of the series won't gain much from this iteration, but for those who haven't played Dishonored before, the Definitive Edition is a great game that's worth checking out.
This is the best edition available on console, and I would highly recommend picking this game up if you haven't played it before.
At the current price, Dishonored: Definitive Edition is a complete rip-off and Bethesda callously thinks they can dupe their customers into buying such a lazy port of a fine game.
With no visual upgrades, additional areas or missions, the main purpose behind this release seems to be keeping the franchise in the public eye until the announced sequel drops, but if you've never played Dishonored before then definitely try to pick this up.
