It’s almost been three years since Dishonored snuck onto the PlayStation 3, and when we donned the daunting mask of Corvo Attano back then to creep through Dunwall without so much as killing a soul or making a sound, we still regard Arkane Studios’ runaway success with much-deserved admiration. Whether you choose to take a quiet route of redemption by sneaking past your foes with cunning or dash the opposition to pieces in epic brawls and from the shadows, this stealthy, visually gorgeous escapade is welcoming to players of multiple play styles with its versatile, solid gameplay. Now with a remastered take on the Game of the Year edition, does it make revisiting the city’s desolate streets worth another go-around on next-gen hardware? We know that the answer is not a ‘definitive’ yes.
