    Dishonored is a stealth FPS where you play as the Emperess's bodyguard who was framed for her murder. Escaping from prison you have become an assassin in search for justice!
    • Perform clever melee assassinations
    • Kill at a distance with guns, crossbows, and other gadets
    • Teleport from shadow to shadow
    • Possess creatures and travel un-noticed

    Rule of Thumb
    High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Dishonored ran perfectly on my Geforce 550 Ti and I experienced great frame rates. Everything was smooth from loading, saving and changing video settings, to mouse movement, interacting and exiting the game.

    Very good game and actually runs very good in actual wine versions

    Thanks
    Every time I test a game based on Unreal Engine, it runs really well.
    I hope some of these awesome games will get ported to Linux since Unreal Engine supports Linux

    This game is awesome, I played through it when it was newly released. I really enjoyed the stealth elements in this game.
  4. booman
    I'm not a huge fan of stealth, but so far I'm liking the tactics so far...
