Guys, it's modified Unreal 3.

Q: Why doesn't Dishonored take advantage of the idTech5 engine?

A: The game was in early development before we joined Bethesda. We're certainly impressed by everything idTech5 has to offer, but Dishonored is being crafted with a custom version of the Unreal Engine, including plenty of features developed in-house.
I know people are sick of U3, but with the art style it looks really good. Like a higher quality more artistic borderlands with a setting that plays much better with the art style. The gameplay and story both look awesome too!

I'm fine with that. I have zero problems with U3 engine. I actually really like it but I hate how there have been entirely too many game developers that have been lazy with it and released sub par products that use it.

Games like Mass effect, bulletstorm and the batman games are terrific examples of how it can really shine.

It does kind of look like BioShock Infinite, but more with the art style than anything else. It's not going for a realistic look, which I like.

BUMP for an AMAAAAAAZING game!

Pretty good "round table discussion" review from RPS

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012...ct-dishonored/

Picked it up yesterday from green man for $35. Absolutely incredible art style and atmosphere. IMO a near perfect blend of stealth/action game play. It also runs smooth as glass @ 1440p maxed out in game settings and 8X SGSS in inspector

Also, blink is crazy and amazing and I want it in every FPS now Also the rats are terrifying.


Shots @ 100 fov

Using the BioShock aa compatibility bits, I can force AA with little performance loss.

Now if only BioShock would force AA with its own bits, then we'd be somewhere.

UE3 does a fine job with the game, runs like a dream and load times are so quick. Why would anybody want them to use Idtech 5? That engine is terrible.

Game is ok but I find the stealth aspect extremely basic and limited, The AI is decent but lots of room for improvement. Played it twice, once mostly stealth non lethal for low chaos and them second time kill everybody on very hard. Interestingly enough the very hard kill everybody playthrough was easier and shorter. Teleporting assassins and tall boys were the only real challenge and there are hardly any of them.

I really thought more things would change in the world playing high chaos and doing things differently. I liked how the last level changes atmosphere and resolution but there aren't many other changes, certainly very few big changes. Compared to Deus Ex HR the options are minuscule. Compared to Bioshock, the powers and narrative is mediocre. Compared to Thief: DS the stealth is poor. I guess what I'm saying is that it's really nothing amazing although I like the clean and distinctive world they created. Voice cast has some big names but underutilized.

I wasn't really following this game much before release, Blink is a cool feature but I can't see how this is 91 on metacritic.
