Oh my god.I can't wait until Monday night! This is amazing. I expected this game to be good because I loved Arx Fatalis, but this is even better than I expected.

Quite high scores considering, bethesda can't afford to pay off publications like activision/ea/sony/microsoft can

Preordered months ago.

Cancelled preorder due to cash flow issues.

Thought I could wait a bit before getting it.

I cant. Time to sort out trades and visit an actual shop....

They gave Ridge Racer Unbounded 9/10 as well.

Although dishonored actually deserves it based on the round up above.

Is it a bad thing?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Absolutely not.

Just surprising in a good way, these type of scores are usually saved for the mega franchises of the gaming world like CoD, new IP's tend to get harsher treatment.

Yes, that was a black mark against them. Worst arcade racing game for a long time, shocking.

I've had my eye on Dishonoured, I don't actually know much about the game or it's game play but I can be swayed by certain art styles.

Shame I'm skint!

Most games have glowing previews, they usually take the best section of a game and polish the hell out of it.

So yeah I am surprised in a good way, that they've made a game that sounds just as enjoyable from start to finish.

Like I said above, new IP's tend to get harsher treatment in reviews than established franchises, look at all the 8's and 9's RE6 got despite most people saying how bad it is after they've played it.

I expected the general consensus to be 7's all around, fun but flawed but I'm ecstatic at what I've read today and can't wait for my copy to arrive.

I hope those 4.5 are out of 5 not 10
