Two great new missions.
The core gameplay is as compelling as ever.
Higher difficultly will test even veteran players.
AI can feel overpowered.
Less stealth options.
Too much reliance on recycled assets.

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...80

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.85

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.80

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.80

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.75

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...88
