Here we go! Another Let’s Play series.
After the first Dishonored, I immediately barreled into the recently released sequel. I’m glad that I played the original to get more context and more depth, plus it helped me get better at the gameplay. (“Better” is subjective in this case.)
The graphics are great, but since the art is so stylized, it doesn’t seem like much of a jump from the first game.
But you can tell the devs were working with more confidence and more budget. The level design is amazing. Chapters like the Clockwork Mansion and Stilton’s Estate are some of the most innovative stages I’ve ever played.
Plus the main character(s) finally have voice acting. And being able to choose between two main characters to play means I’ll definitely be replaying this game. Each has comparable but different power sets which I really want to go back and experiment with.
All in all, I think these were stellar games that should’ve gotten more attention than they did.
I definitely recommend playing these if you can.
Here is my playlist of videos for a Dishonored let’s play. It comes right on the heels of my Rise of the Tomb Raider let’s play, because I was just so excited to get started and get through this game.
I can’t believe I hadn’t even heard of this game until the sequel came out. I’m really glad I played it, and it was definitely one of the more challenging games I’ve played recently.
I’ve already kicked off playing the sequel and it’s just as awesome and difficult as the first.
I finally got to play this game since it’d been an Xbox One exclusive for almost a year.
I think it mainly lived up to expectations. The gameplay is great and robust, while Lara further progresses into the bad-ass we all know her to be. But the story and antagonists were largely bland and forgettable.
It’ll always draw comparisons to Uncharted 4, and I think each were strong where the other was weak. Uncharted 4 might not have been as wild and crazy as the previous entries but its memorable characters and their interactions were the backbone of that story.
I will say that I loved the Challenge Tombs and solving those puzzles gave me such a giddy pleasure. My gun-battle skills were the normal levels of mediocre though. Enjoy!
