Another great art piece created by Bethesda. The story line, the controls, and the graphics are some of the best this year. The game is a must buy, especially for the gaymers who enjoy Fallout and Assassin’s Creed.

The game is based in late 1800s – early 1900s in the industrial cities of Dunwall, London, and Edinburgh. What makes this game so interesting is that super powers and very high technology is to co-exist in the same world, a very steampunk theme. In addition, the story line has that “stealth” plot, in which you can choose to participate, and learn more about characters. A gamer can also play the game without killing anyone. There are also different endings that the player can choose. The missions can seem somewhat tedious at first, but they will uncover a lot of Easter eggs in the process. 

The graphics are stunning. The lighting and the coloring for the background are breathtaking. From the buildings to the water, the artists have spent so much time on their canvas, and have created an iconic art piece. Having spectacular graphics is not the only wondrous thing about this game; the controls are also easy to maneuver.

The view of the game is in First Person Shooter, and the controls are perfectly coordinated for the gamer to be able to make their fingers become an extra pair of legs. The PC controls keep the dual wielding style (Keyboard & Mouse), and the controllers keep the dual stick access for easy use.

9/10 runes is the score I give this game. So close to a 10, but Bethesda has given the gaming community so many similar games (FPS RPGs) that a lot of gamers have given up. The game can get very tedious, a sometimes endless adventuring around the city.
