As it stands, Dishonored: Definitive Edition is just another rerelease among the dogpile that has steadily grown over the last two years. The original game is still as great as ever – it was one of my games of the year in 2012, after all – but the overall package might not be worth it, especially since you can get the Game of the Year Edition on PC for ten bucks cheaper. This is not a particular “definitive” edition, with that in mind. A superb game in a not quite as superb package.
If you’ve never played Dishonored then this game should already be in your basket. It’s a pristine release that’s being saved from fading into history with this re-release and delivers all the content as a thank you. For the double dippers considering this, a stern word of caution. Very little has changed since you left Dunwall but if you really get a kick out of your controller talking to you then by all means, go in for the kill.
Yes, Dishonored was – is – a great game but did it really warrant a re-release for anything more than sucking extra cash out of consumers? In the end the game does still stack up as one of the greatest stealth action games of last generation but unless you missed it the first time around there is absolutely no reason to look at it now. That being said, if you passed up this gem in 2012 you can’t go wrong with jumping into it now.
