I tried not to divulge too much information about the storyline, but it was hard to do. If you like any of Bethesda’s games and their plots, then odds are that you will enjoy this one as well. What is boils down to is what most of their games are about. You are in this world, you have people trying to kill you, and you have to choose how you want to use the weapons and skills given to you. That’s the one thing about Bethesda that I admire above all else with their games. That it’s YOUR game. You make the character what he is in the end. It’s your decisions and your actions that define the road that your character goes down on his quest for absolution from the crimes that he didn’t commit, yet carries all the guilt in the world because of them.
Dishonor was more fun than I expected, and the storyline was fresh, after that classic “must escape from prison” thing that Bethesda loves to use. But the point is that it worked for me, and I enjoyed the trip. The steampunk world is one that they captured perfectly in this game. Throw in the fact that you are an assassin with magical powers and you’ve got a game that combines everything that makes a game great these days. I honestly don’t have anything truly bad to say about Dishonor. It simply works.
