When Dishonored came out last year it more or less recaptured the magic of the first-person stealth genre that had been missing since Garrett hung up his hood in 2004’s Thief: Deadly Shadows. Now with Thief all set to return next year it’s...

The Knife of Dunwall ends with an interesting choice (and foreshadows the next planned downloadable chapter in Daud's story), but the real payoff of this DLC is how it takes the cocktail of discovery, exploration, and combat that made Dishonored so delicious, and adds an engaging twist.

By PCAdvisor on 80

A meaty and high-quality expansion - there may be plenty of repetition in here, but it is proof positive that DLC needn't be cynical and half-hearted.

The Knife of Dunwall changes protagonists with panache, delivering a compelling new chapter in the Dishonored...

Knife of Dunwall is the second add-on for last year's excellent assassination game Dishonored , and it's just what the doctor ordered: more missions, each with multiple ways to neutralise their morally dubious targets. The first DLC, Trials of...

With Daud's story left on a cliffhanger, we hope Arkane keeps up this form with the next installment.

It's all that's great about Dishonored, essentially, a subtly tweaked and well fleshed out return to the dirty streets of Dunwall, and its handful of shortcomings and taste for blood over stealth are never really enough to stop it from being essential.

Taken on the strength of the first two levels, I’d call this a pitch-perfect pack of DLC, but it’s held back by the short-change in the third act and awkward plotting. When you’re promised three missions and you really only get two, you feel it.

By IGN on 75

So far, however, it's all set-up and no punchline. Even so, it’s great to be back in Dunwall, immersed in one of the most well-realised worlds in modern gaming.

Dishonored fans that were disappointed by Dunwall City Trials can't be blamed for feeling skeptical towards the game's second DLC pack, The Knife of Dunwall. I’m happy to report that this time we're getting a real expansion to...

One of the difficult things to get around with a lot of DLC packages is that they cover ground already trodden by the original game. The various Mass Effect 3 DLCs probably loom largest as the most awkward of this variety – sure, they're great...

There are too few surprises when it comes to the story and Daud is a disappointingly blunt instrument, but a return to Dunwall is welcome no matter who’s conducting the tour.

Les Lames de Dunwall propose un scénario accrocheur, notamment grâce au lieutenant assassin qui accompagne Daud et ponctue de ses commentaires certains passages. Si vous avez aimé Dishonored, difficile de ne pas conseiller ce DLC, tant il...
