The Empress has been killed, her Daughter kidnapped, and you, the Lord Protector, gets falsely accused of Regicide. As the supernatural assassin, Corvo Attano, you can exact revenge in whatever way you want. Sure, you can sneak around and stab guards in the back like every other stealth game out there, but it’s the freedom of choice that makes Dishonored one of the best stealth games available.
The missions are open for you to choose your own path. You can explore the area, looking for ways to slip in and neutralize your target unnoticed. Get to your high-profile targets by sneaking in through a vent, possessing a rat, and teleporting from cover to cover so you can silently and brutally deliver the coup de grace. At least, that’s one option. But why give the scum of the earth the easy way out (a quick death), when you can help them get kidnapped, or send them to toil in a coalmine for the rest of their miserable lives.
