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.
