Dishonored 2 Review: Why Game Draws Mixed Reactions

By Mario Ferrari , Nov 17, 2016 04:10 AM EST

Dishonored 2 has been officially released across all platforms. Despite good reviews during its launch, some critics have found things that are said to be the biggest problems of the game. Here's why Dishonored 2 draws mixed reactions.

Dishonored 2: Loopholes Of Seemingly Perfect Game

Dishonored 2 seems caught onto the hands of critics saying the game is disappointing at some point. In a review by Forbes, the biggest downside of Dishonored 2 lies on the fact that it has no "restart mission" in cases that a player accidently loses all three saves brought by a bug. Although this issue can be fixed via next update, it is sad to note that Bethesda Softworks has no back-up plan for that per se. Like in any other games, bugs make the biggest loophole of a seemingly perfect game.

Dishonored 2: Most Inventive Stealth Game

On the other hand, Dishonored 2 has been deemed by Independent UK in its review as a "wildly inventive...that can take its place as one of the most memorable, consistently entertaining stealth games of all time." In particular, the option to play either as Emily or Corvo is a major selling point, and their set of abilities as individuals are distinct in so many ways. Among all Dishonored's skills, Emily's Shadow Walk is tagged the most visually captivating. This allows the dethroned royalty to morph into a gust of smoke rolling down the floor and into hidden corners to sidle at the opponents.

The coastal city of Karnaca however is too restricted for now and players have yet to explore the hidden treasures of the place. Certainly there's more to it considering it's the primary location of the sequel. What makes the "most inventive stealth game" is the fact that reloading saved games seems to create excitement in itself. Besides, obfuscating a character's vision somewhere in the Dust District, Clockwork Mansion and Addermire Station is something that makes Karnaca so unique.

Dishonored 2 is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
