Post Dishonored: The Onion



There's going to be a backlash against Dishonored. It can't be helped: when a game makes big promises, a justice squad will quickly arise to loudly demand that it accounts for not meeting them to the very letter, and in this case I suspect there's an additional flock of people who have been led by marketing to expect an all-out action game. I can predict, even sympathise with, some of the complaints, others I suspect will be absolutely mystifying to me. It's the finest hour in what we might loosely but innacurately term 'blockbuster shooters' in years ' I'd feel petulant were I to demand it give me even more. But there is one complaint that may reach a crescendo in short order, and that is the issue of length. For me, Dishonored was a deliciously long game, clocking in at about 25 hours even without the total replay I intend on having very soon. For someone else ' someone who has a lot of numbers in the name they use when playing Halo 4, say ' it will be insultingly short. It may not even make a double figures quantity of hours. That's not the game's fault, it's theirs. They gobbled the onion up whole, too greedy or too lazy to peel apart its layers.
