So. Dissssssssssshonored. I liked it. …………*cricket cricket* …………What? Why do people expect me to have ragey, explosive, foaming-at-the-mouth-insane reactions to everything?
I really did like it. That simple. Besides, I'm saving up all my explosives for when I get around to expressing my thoughts on RE6. Oh yes, there will be explosions. *grumble grumble grumble FUCK grumble*
Anyway… I liked Dishonored. I would have liked it a lot more if the game designers had included a New Game+ feature with cheat codes. Tell me it wouldn't be awesome as FUCK to be able to blink clear across the map, have infinite mana, infinite possession time, infinite stop time, super jump and so on…. That would be so much fun. Pity so many game developers neglect the New Game+ feature/cheat codes. I personally find it intensely fun to go back and screw with games after I've beaten them.
As much as I liked Dishonored and would most definitely call it a good game, I felt a few things were lacking. It would have been nice if there was more character relationship development. I feel like the ending should have made me cry or at least tear up but it did not and mind you I tear up really easily. I still get all weepy over frigging Disney movies! I will say, however, that Pendleton, Havelock, and Campbell's betrayal filled me with seething rage. *crouch-stand-crouch-stand-crouch-stand* Yes, I teabagged their corpses. Fuckers. *cough* Anyway, where was I? Oh right…. I felt that all endings were extremely short and could have been fleshed out. I also wish there were more missions, more side quests, more maps, and more control over travel. It might have been nice to be able to travel between maps at will.
Overall I really liked the game despite it's slight threadbareness and lack of replay value. Though still, I liked it and I'd recommend it. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing a sequel either. I'll fell in love with that heart. That thing was eerie and fucking awesome. I love the concept. I also really liked the story and some of the ideas expressed. I especially liked the consequence oriented gameplay. Definite thumbs up. Quite enjoyable.
