Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials

Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials

Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials is a selection of ten challenges based around stealth, puzzle-solving, combat, and movement. These challenges are not really the best showcase of what makes the original game so great, but some of them are fun for a playthrough or two. Players searching for more story content are better off with the later DLC.

Gameplay: Some challenges are fun, but most are unlikely to hold your attention for long.

Graphics: The same style as the main game, but with a Void twist to each area.

Sound: Still good, but no story or dialogue worth mentioning

Dishonored

Dishonored

Step into the stealthy boots of a master assassin and eliminate your foes through violence or cunning in this immersive first-person title. Eliminating your enemies with deadly gadgets or supernatural powers is a blast, but playing as a silent shadow that is never seen is arguable even more fun. Dishonored might not have the most original storyline, but the amount of freedom it gives players makes for a very memorable experience.

Gameplay: There is a lot of freedom to be as violent or stealthy as you wish.

Graphics: Great art style and plenty of attention to detail.

Sound: Stellar voice acting despite some repetition
