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
