In a gaming world of generic shooters that have created a fog of mediocrity, Dishonored stood out this year as a simply brilliant first-person action game, which thrust you into the role of a supernatural assassin driven by a thirst for revenge.

In a glorious game environment packed with Steampunk personality, you’ll revel in the role of Corvo Attano, a former bodyguard enlisted to further the advances of a rebellious crew keen to overthrow the despotic Lord Regent and help restore your ropey reputation.

The game is played out in exactly the way that you want to progress, whether its through a clever combination of sneaking, stealth and magic or the good old-fashioned route of shooting the hell out of everything that moves.
