Dishonored: Rat Assassin Review » 148Apps » iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch App Reviews and News

 

One of the most highly anticipated console and PC games this year, Dishonored is set to hit our systems in less than a month’s time. Dishonored: Rat Assassin won’t really give you a taste of what to expect from such a title, but it will entertain those after a casual gaming thrill.

These challenges come in three different varieties: easy, medium and hard. Some stages might just require slicing up a certain number of rats before the time limit expires, others require more accurate slicing thanks to an increased number of obstacles. The most satisfying are the ones that mix things up, such as requiring players to track a spotlight or use a crossbow rather than a blade. They might be subtle changes to a tried and tested formula but it works. There’s more reason to stand by Dishonored: Rat Assassin than you’d expect and it’s fun to work through the challenges.

Dishonored: Rat Assassin further encourages repeated sessions by offering unlockable extras. They’re not the most thrilling, with new backgrounds, slice actions and musical tracks, but everyone loves feeling they’ve achieved something and it works suitably well here.

Tie-in games are frequently a little weak, trying to pack so much into so little. Dishonored: Rat Assassin dodges that quite nicely and, while it doesn’t bear much similarity to what will happen in the full game, it’s a fun distraction that’s worth taking the time to download.
