Reviews from women across the web:

CheatCC – Becky Cunningham, 5/5

This is a title by a studio at the top of its game, lovingly crafted for players who enjoy lavishly crafted worlds and delightfully creative gameplay challenges. It’s for the thieves, the mischief makers, the lovers of experimentation. It’s for playful thinkers, for explorers, and for idealists and cynics alike. Dishonored 2 is stealth-action at its finest, and deserves every one of the awards it will no doubt be lavished with this winter.

Videogamer – Alice Bell, 10/10

Dishonored 2 takes everything you loved about Dishonored and improves upon it without becoming bloated. It’s a beautifully designed, layered game, stuffed with hidden gems and secret stories. Also you can stab people in mid air.

IGN – Lucy O’Brien, 9.3/10

With two unique sets of skills to play with across 10 themed chapters that keep things interesting and a gorgeous, evocative world that feels alive, Dishonored 2 is a remarkable experience. Though I would have liked a little bit more originality in its central story, which again revolves around a usurper to the throne. It’s the stories that I’ve created on my own using its many creativity-enabling powers that I’ll remember, every graceful, fumbling, and hilarious one of them, and I’m compelled to create many more in the months to come.

GBATemp – Krista Noren, 9/10

Dishonored 2 takes everything that made Dishonored 1 great, and improves upon nearly every aspect. With a wealth of different ways to play, as well as fantastic level design dotted with collectibles, this game is sure to please returning fans and newcomers alike.

Azralynn – recommended once performance issues are fixed on PC
