Age Rating: ESRB Mature | PEGI 18

The emergent stealth game made a triumphant comeback with Dishonored (well, after poking its head out of the shadows with Deus Ex: Human Revolution). There's a bit of Thief, a bit of BioShock and a bit of Batman in here, resulting in a gloriously open stealth-action title set in fantastic new world.

As bodyguard-turned-assassin Corvo Attano, your mission is one of revenge, sneaking, and occasionally turning into a fish - or it is once you've attracted the attention of Dunwall's mysterious god/devil figure The Outsider. Armed with supernatural powers, you can turn bodies to ash, possess small animals and eventually people and - best of all - teleport short distances via Blink.

We've only scratched the surface of Dishonored's fascinating Victoriana setting, but we're dying - actually, Dunwall City Watch is dying - to see more.
