The more I read about Dishonored
, the more I realise that I basically suck at the game.
Truth be told, I still haven't managed to finish Arkane Studios
seductive first person stealth-ish shooter. I find the levels too immense, the options too varied and the difficulty level a little harsh.
It doesn't help that those early reviews were full of the most evocative descriptions of elaborate slaughter, multi layered and wreathed in clouds of stylised claret. I hoped, nay prayed, that they might have been exaggerated in an effort to save face. Sadly, there's now considerable video evidence to confirm my suckage.
Bethesda has just released a compilation video called 'Killer Moves' which shows off the best moments submitted to them by players. The sandbox orientation of Dishonored
allows for an incredible variety of actions, supported by a plethora of weapons, approaches and magical powers. Beware, there is much awesome here. Though obviously not a lot of stealth.
My favourite arrives at 1.00
