Chris I played Dis­hon­ored un­til I un­der­stood all of its lev­els back­wards, and it kept im­press­ing me the whole way. Its im­ple­men­ta­tion of first-person stealth is the best since Thief II, and dozens of com­ple­men­tary sys­tems pro­vide huge room for player ex­pres­sion. It’s also an ace ac­tion game, and that’s not a trick many pull off.

Andy The clos­est a mod­ern game has come to Deus Ex. I played the en­tire thing with­out killing or alert­ing any guards, and it’s prob­a­bly the most fun I’ve ever had with a stealth game. Dun­wall was a joy to blink around, with its rich, styl­ized art and sense of cul­ture and his­tory. If we never re­turn to that world, it’ll be a damn shame.

Phil For me, it’s about the move­ment. Corvo’s power lies in how slip­pery he feels, whether clam­ber­ing over Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tec­ture or ef­fort­lessly tor­ment­ing guards.
