Excerpt: Arkane Studios really knows how to handle DLC. After the stellar Knife of Dunwall campaign, I was immediately sold on the follow-up Brigmore Witches , not only to find out how Daud’s tale ends, but to experience even more scenarios that were superior to the original game.
Excerpt: Daud the assassin is back in the second and final story-based Dishonored DLC pack. The Brigmore Witches picks up where the first DLC left off, putting you back in the shoes of the Knife of Dunwall, armed with his blade, his wristbow and his Mark of the Outsider as he continues his pursuit of Delilah...
Excerpt: Editor's Note 4/19/13: Scroll down for GamesRadar's review of Dishonored's DLC update, The Knife of Dunwall. Historically, new IPs with unique worlds don't pop up as frequently when it's several years into a console cycle.
Pros: Openness of the level structure, Freedom to be creative with the combat, Unique lore and characters suck you into the world
Cons: Abilities wheel and onscreen pop-ups take you out of the action, Steep difficulty at the start can be discouraging, Stealth option gets trumped by action gameplay

Excerpt: Imagine if the game Thief had a protagonist more suited for Bioshock and you get Dishonored . Dishonored is a game by Bethsheda in which players take the role of Corvo Attano, the bodyguard of the late Empress of Dunwall.
Conclusion: After Dishonored was announced, I wasn't especially excited for it. The game had a Steampunk look to it and featured some interesting action elements to it, but it looked like an all style with no substance game that was made for those with a hard-on for Steampunk.
Excerpt: No matter your interest in games of this style, Dishonored is a must-play title. Although it’s not the longest game in the world, you will feel compelled to play through missions or the entire game multiple times to discover the diverse number of ways to take on different sections.
