It looks beautiful. Until you start haring around with a knife making guard-jerky, of course, and chucking ragdoll corpses about just because. Dishonored 2 is here, and as ever its open-ended design just begs for someone to go running amok. Phil and Jordan, perennial fans of running amok, stepped up to the plate for this one, and it’s fair to say that in the years since Phil last played Dishonored, his skills have dulled just slightly.
Dishonored 2 inherits many traits (and some developers) from the best PC games of all time.
After giving Corvo our attention for an entire game, we decided it was Emily’s turn to enjoy being hurtled around by our graceless mouse swipes and keyboard fumbles. Watch as we eat grapes, fail to open a window, fall off a big ledge, fall off another big ledge, shoot some guards in the knees, and find a picture of an owl that looks like a badly restored fresco of Roy Hodgson.
