Video Game Review: Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches

Details: This is a review of The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches downloadable content. These DLC were originally released in 2013. The Definitive Edition was released in 2015. I purchased Dishonored: Definitive Edition a long time ago for about $8.50 through bundlestars.com, who is now known as fanatical.com I think. The Definitive Edition comes with all the downloadable content. Beat The Knife of Dunwall in about five hours. Beat The Brigmore Witches in about three hours. Played on the PC through Steam.

Score for both The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches: 5.9/10

These two DLC’s are the only story based DLC for Dishonored. They were okay.

The Knife of Dunwall takes place during the events of the main game. You play Daud, the assassin who murdered the empress. You learn about someone named Delilah and chase after her. There isn’t that much story here. This DLC is mostly an excuse to play more Dishonored, which is fine by me since I enjoyed the main game. Gameplay is mostly the same as the main game, except that its minimized a bit since the DLC is shorter to play through.

The Brigmore Witches continues the story of Daud from The Knife of Dunwall. It’s also short and just more of the same.

Overall, if you enjoyed Dishonored, you’ll enjoy this DLC. It’s just a short bit of simplified gameplay and story that adds slightly more depth to the story. I wouldn’t recommend buying it unless you’re buying the Definitive Edition which comes with the main game and all DLC.

Score: 5.9/10
