The long-awaited  Dishonored 2 game is finally out. Gamers can now enter a world ruled by supernatural events in which they must complete a series of missions in order to take back what’s rightfully theirs.

Tens of thousands of gamers are already playing Dishonored 2 on Steam, but it appears not all of them believe this game is worth $59.99. User reviews on Steam are mixed, with only 63% of them positive. This score is very surprising taking into account the eagerness in getting their hands on this title.

Why does Dishonored 2 have negative reviews?

The main reason that pushed gamers to review Dishonored 2 so poorly is its disappointing quality. The game leaves much to be desired in terms of performance and optimization, although Bethesda has already pushed out a large 9 GB day-one patch to fix some of the annoying bugs limiting the gaming experience.

The list of Dishonored 2 issues is quite long and unfortunately, there are very few workarounds available to fix them. The poor PC port is causing a bevy of issues, making many gamers wonder whether they should get a refund or wait for a bit longer.

Again anything Bethesda touches always releases broke. Seems to be a standard now. I’m tired of hearing steam discussions always say, “Its day 1 release, ♥♥♥♥ happens” Triple A release, made by a Billion dollar gaming company… Who the feck is beta testing these games? This should not have been released with this heavy FPS drop.

As a result, many Dishonored 2 fans recommend potential customers to wait until the until the next patch is released.

This game is sleek. It looks awesome, the gameplay is great. I’m sure the story is too. However, I am fraid I cannot in good faith recommend this game. It performs horribly at the moment. Just attrocious. If you have a AMD System – do not bother until the game is severely patched.

In a nutshell, Dishonored 2’s performance let down many fans. The game offers impressive graphics along with interesting and entertaining gameplay, but somehow all these valuable elements quickly fade away compared to the plethora of technical issues currently affecting the game.

What do you think about the score Dishonored 2 has received? Have these negative reviews stopped you from purchasing the game?
