I try very hard to keep a unbiased opinion about a game before I play it. I don’t read any game reviews until after I have done my own. I keep a very strong “No Spoilers” policy on our groups, forums and vent. However, Dishonored made such a huge splash at E3 even Helen Keller would have pre-ordered. Winning any award before release is an amazing achievement, but Dishonored did not stop at just one. No, by the time E3 was over, Dishonored racked up 50 awards. That is not a typo. So, you can understand that not only did this game make itself the “Must have Game of the Year,” but it also set reviewer’s expectations so high it couldn’t help but fail. It is no secret that I am more known for being an “outside the box” reviewer. Where most see a Triple A, big budget, hack and slash hit, I see a overpriced, steam-punk, Bioshock clone. From atop my throne on a mountain of innovative indie titles, I cast down my judgmental stare on this over-hyped, mass-produced, “You’ve got to get it” game.
