Glancing first at Steam reviews, my thoughts on the matter are mixed. From what is to be understood, the game itself is shaping up exactly as we all hoped it would be, with smooth gameplay, beautiful graphics, and an enrapturing storyline. That being said, Dishonored 2 is widely seen as yet another game critically afflicted by consolitis, the condition of a PC game being a horribly optimized port of the base console-optimized version, with many technical grievances present in the current pre-release. As this is a game published by Bethesda, such is somewhat unsurprising, and I am hopeful that an optimization patch is forthcoming sooner rather than later. That being said, whole years of tolerating awful game performance on a mediocre PC means that I am unlikely to be as bothered by these issues as many others. I am still as excited as ever to dive in.
