Combine stealth-gameplay, supernatural powers and an incredible amount of choice, and you've got the recipe for something great. Dishonored is a brilliant first-person game in which you don the mask of Corvo Attano. After the regent he was supposed to protect gets brutally murdered and he gets framed for it, Corvo has to find a way through the rat-infested city of Dunwall to rescue the abducted princess. Dishonored gives the player unprecedented freedom: do you kill your target by poisoning him, or do you stuff him in a crate and send him off to the end of the world? Do you sneak into the palace in the form of a rat or do you grab your pistol and shoot your way through? The choice is yours.
