I picked up Dishonored 2 from the Steam sale and I’ve put around 3 hours in so far. I played through the first game and I enjoyed it a bunch. I felt it did a good job at putting you in a fun stealth sandbox and gave you plenty of tools to have fun. This was even in fairly early hours of the first game. I remember being introduced to the ability to become a rat and that really opened up a lot doors.
The sequel feels like it’s lacking all of that. I started the third mission and so far it’s felt incredibly linear and constricting. The scenarios I’m being placed in lack the fun of the first and honestly I’m struggling to care about what’s going on because everyone is so lifeless and the world is gray and dull.
I feel frustrated because I can’t tell if I approached this game at the wrong time or if I’m actually bouncing off. I’ve hear the Clockwork mission is super good but I just couldn’t get through the intro to that level. It annoyed the heck outta me that the game is so bad at indicating if I’m about to enter a hostile area or not and it’s annoying running into an area to suddenly be surrounded by enemies because you figured you were heading into a neutral zone
So yeah. Those are my thoughts so far on this game.
