DISHONORED

Bethesda

PS3 (also on Xbox 360, PC)

See that missing letter there? Well no, probably, because itís missing. Anyway, blame Nintendo...

Yep, they made all their new Wii U consoles, only to face a world shortage of the letter that falls between ĎTí and ĎVí alphamabetically to stick on them. So, they spent considerable $$$s stockpiling all instances of that letter everywhere. We were saving the one we typed there for a special occasion. Arenít we good to ye?

Anyway, this is basically The Bodygard: The Game. Bt withot Kevin Costner, no Whitney Hoston, and Ė well, really all the two have in common is fck all. Still, yo, Corvo, were the Empressí protector, ítil yo done got framed for her death. Bring on one completely jstified revenge trip, starting with jailbreak (insert Angs Yong riff here), and involving everything from sewer crawling to river trawling, with lots more besides. We donít wish to say too mch, as part of the joy of Dishonored is discovery. Which makes p for some of the shit yoíre expected to eat Ė jellied eels, brined hagfish, potted whale meat... prolific vomit.

So, any gastronomes reading, donít plan on a steampnk ftre, míkay?

Anyway, yor qest to clear yor name and bring those nastynogoodlowdownframingbastichwhyIorta assassins to jstice takes place in a first-person view. We cold be slack and say itís sort of a sedately-toned Mirrorís Edge meets Assassinís Creed... and we will. Bt thereís depth to DIshonored beyond its stealth mechanics, weaponry ranging from typical to mystical, spectaclar artwork, an enthralling overall vibe and those horrid pickled foodstffs: This thing has a conscience.

Yep, yo can flit along merrily, going all killkillkill thrillthrillthrill, or yo can be all ninjatastic stealthamatronic. ďSo?Ē yo may be scoffing. Well if yo tread merciflly then yo jst may get a vastly better game experience than if yor a total cnt...

take me back to the start...
