Conclusion: Combined with The Knife of Dunwall , The Brigmore Witches and the story of Daud is exactly what Dishonored ’s DLC needed to be – a fun side-story with an interesting character that adds to the main story but doesn’t take anything away.
Conclusion: While Knife of Dunwall provides a good excuse to revisit the city of Dunwall, it never does anything particularly interesting. There are no missions akin to Lady Boyle’s Last Party or powers quite as neat as the ability to summon rats.
Conclusion: Nevertheless it’s a story that definitely has me intrigued (which I couldn’t say about Dishonored ’s plot, another failing of the main game that Knife of Dunwall seems to be correcting) and anyone hankering for more Dishonored will be utterly satisfied – I certainly hope this is how Bioshock...
Excerpt: If you experienced Dishonored , you no doubt caught the catalyst for the protagonist’s entire adventure at the start of the game: the death of the beloved Empress of the The Empire of Isles. But who actually killed her?
Excerpt: Corvo Attano isn’t the only man who was touched by the spiritual mark that grants him his powers. In the dreary streets, whaling ports, and lavish houses of nobles, another stalks in the shadows. He is the killer of an Empress, Daud, the master assassin.
Summary: In the end, if you're looking for an immersive new world, one with all manner of secrets and ways of accomplishing your objectives, a TRULY emergent gameplay system-- Dishonored is your cup of tea.
Excerpt: A wrath-filled bodyguard turned assassin out to get revenge against the people who murdered his Empress in an industrial steampunk world mixed with magic: what could possibly go wrong? But while there is no doubt that Dishonored is fun and creative, it isn’t perfect.
